Mehendi Party

I had the privilege of attending a Mehendi party the other night. There was folk dancing, spicy Indian food and henna applications. It was truly a festive, fun-filled celebration.

 A professional henna designer applied mehendi to the bride-to-be’s hands and feet. I was told the bride is not expected to perform any housework until her wedding Mehendi has faded!

 It is common for the names of the bride and groom to be hidden in the design. Ricardo is pointing out his name!
