Something Different! 7 White Mehendi Ideas
The mehendi ceremony is an important event in an Indian wedding. Hands and feet being decorated with intricate designs using henna. Depending on how intricate is the design, the drying up process will vary but it is worth it if you want to get that dark colour imprint on your limbs.
For the longest time, henna monopolised the mehendi sphere – until a few years ago, the concept of “white mehendi” came into existence. White mehendi is basically white body paint that is slowly making its way the ensemble of a modern and non-conventional bride. It is not actually henna for henna is a plant whose extract provides the reddish-brown tint to skin.
In case you wish to ditch the stand choice of henna and go for white mehendi art instead, here are some looks you can choose from!

This form of mehendi does not necessarily need to stick to hands. When done right, white mehendi can adorn any other part of your body as well. In case any of your outfits features an off-shoulder neck, tube top or peep-hole sleeves, white mehendi should definitely be considered as an option!
