A dulhan’s mehndi design is the whole essence of her entire bridal look. Not only is it a sign of good fortune, but is also believed to calm her nerves before the D-day. No bridal portrait is complete without a gorgeous pair of mehndi-laiden hands!

15. With the mehendi telling a special story:
Skylines on the arms were getting old so….we did this! Delhi ✈️ Toronto. The silhouette representing Delhi is a silhouette of the Qutub Minar (a monument in Delhi) It’s so strange that both the bride & groom lived so close when they were in Delhi but fate brought them together after their families moved to Toronto and they connected through mutual friends in University. That’s somethin’, that’s destiny 💘 ✨ @nikita_sharma9 #SharmaDownTheIsle #BhargavaSquared #GauravHeartsNikita2017 😬 #hennabydivya #hennatattoo #torontohenna #torontohennaartist #torontobridalhenna #bridalmehndi #hennadesign #hennaartist #indianbrides #hennainspire #indianweddinginspiration #indianbrides #indian_wedding_inspiration #wedmegood #lashkara #mehndi #mehndidesigns #bridalmehndi #sangeetmehndi #hennaartist #hennadesigns #eidhenna #eidhennadesigns #henna #indianweddingbuzz
Skylines on the arms were getting old so this bride got this done! Delhi ✈️ Toronto. The mehendi sports a silhouette representing Delhi and of the Qutub Minar. The reason being – the bride & groom lived very near back in Delhi but fate brought them together after their families moved to Toronto and they connected through mutual friends in the University. That’s something I call ‘destiny’.
16. The toronto to San Francisco love story:
Does her henna tell their story? Tanvi and Siddharth met as two Engineering students at University of Toronto, fell in love & now both work in San Fransisco. I absolutely loved creating this bespoke design for them. Congratulations to you two, Tanvi & Siddharth! You guys are truly made for each other 💞 Goodluck for all the preparations for your wedding in India (Save the Date – 22.12.2017!)) #bridalhenna #hennabydivya #hennatattoo #torontohenna #torontohennaartist #torontobridalhenna #bridalmehndi #hennadesign #hennaartist #indianbrides #hennainspire #indianweddinginspiration #indianbrides #indian_wedding_inspiration #wedmegood #lashkara #mehndi #mehndidesigns #bridalmehndi #sangeetmehndi #hennaartist #hennadesigns #eidhenna #eidhennadesigns #henna #indianweddingbuzz
Tanvi and Siddharth met as two Engineering students at University of Toronto, fell in love & now both work in San Francisco. So, her mehndi represents the same.
17. Keeping the hashtag game strong:
It’s a very popular yet age old tradition of hiding the groom’s name inside the intricate mehendi pattern. This trend being a little jaded right now, you can also opt for including your wedding hashtag in your mehendi design.
So girls, go creative with your mehndi design and get that personal touch to it!
