My dear friend, Neha, had her Mehndi back in June, and I’m finally getting around to posting it here. Mehndi is an ancient tradition in the Middle East and India. Gorgeous, intricate designs are “painted” onto flesh using cones of henna. It’s also a festive celebration of the bride and the women of her family & friends who have helped guide her through life. If you are ever invited to attend this beautiful tradition, you must do so!

The bride’s Mehndi is always incredibly intricate.
Here is my beautiful Mehndi!
