11. Mehendi as jewelry:
How cool is this mehandi design that looks like you're wearing jewellery? You can get a design that very closely resembles a bracelet or an anklet (BTW, this also means you get to do away with the actual jewellery :p)

12. 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 mehndi design.
13. On the Sole:
Getting mehendi applied on your feet is just too ‘been-there-done-that’. A lot of brides nowadays are opting for mehendi on their sole and they look just stunning!
