The wedding season is approaching, and what is a wedding without glamor and enthusiasm? The mehendi ceremony is one of the most fun and glamorous occasions before the wedding in India that is usually done one or two days before the wedding. It is considered one of the oldest wedding traditions.
Traditional mehendi designs have become more decorative and intricate over time, and people are becoming more creative.
1. The Paisley Print
The paisley print is a timeless classic. Curved motifs are made in many forms, such as the popular mango design. The design has small and nice paisleys at the fingertips and larger paisleys on the palm. The curvilinear tips add a smooth flow to the design while the complex lines emphasize the symmetry.
2. The Floral Pattern
Flowers are considered a neutral motive to wear, as they are required to be combined with any bridal attire.
This pattern is all floral and completely fabulous. The tiny leaves accentuate the bride’s long fingers and the design of the large flower is shaded to create depth. With petals and vines of various sizes, the design looks very delicate but intriguing.
3. The Royal Architecture
This henna design will remind you of the detailed architectural designs you will find in an old Mughal palace. The domes and floral designs resemble the designs carved on cemented pillars of a royal residence. The main focus of this design is the checkered pattern and divided, very similar to a tapestry, but we can not ignore the paisley and the petals of the wrist and fingers, because they are also very striking.
It is very easy to be fascinated by the pattern of this bridal design.
4. The Raja And Rani
The raja and rani motif is very common in nuptial mehendi designs. This design shows a work of art of a Mughal king and queen. Intricate patterns have been drawn around the two faces to highlight the focal point of the design.
5. The Elephant Motif
The mehendi with elephant features is one of the most favorite mehendi designs for weddings in India. The patterns of curves and curves add a different touch to the design, keeping the feet decorated, but not to the point that the elephants go unnoticed. The design of the elephant is unique and different from common motifs such as peacocks and floral motifs.
6. Colored Mehendi Design
The mehendi design of colors is a relatively new concept. The different colors stand out, making the design more interesting. Although this is not a traditional design, many brides are experimenting with this to flaunt something unique on their wedding day.
7. The Single Mandala
The mandala is a very common design in the nuptial mehendi, a large circle that usually serves as a base around which various patterns are drawn. The petals are often arranged to create a multidimensional look. Does this design remind you of the sun’s rays?
8. The Split Mandala
A divided mandala is usually the central focus of a henna design. With half the circular pattern in one hand and the other half in the second, the design is beautifully symmetrical.
9. The Crafted Cuffs
The main focus of this pattern is on the intricate and thick cuffs on the wrists that are emphasized with simple strokes. The lace pattern on the fingers has curvilinear floral patterns, while the intermediate points lead towards the geometric cuffs. It’s a modern look with a focus on the wrist, instead of the palm. However, the small mandalas behind the cuffs ensure that your arms are fully optimized!
10. The Curvy Floral
This design focuses solely on floral and curved patterns, but some contemporary hearts can also be thrown for fun!
11. The Chequered Pattern
This pattern is an excellent way to make your mehendi design stand out and is commonly used to break the monotony of general intricate patterns. The pattern can be used very skillfully to fill gaps in other mehendi designs as well.
12. The Tips And Cuffs
This look presents minimalist designs at the tips of the bride’s fingers and elaborates the details on the cuffs. The palms may have a simple design drawn on them, or none at all. This modern pattern has been created with a mixture of architectural and floral inspiration. It makes the hands of the bride appear as if she were wearing bracelets.
