Mehndi Party

A Mehndi party is a party that is held before an Indian wedding ceremony. Mehndi parties are usually held at the family home of the bride in the week leading up to the actual wedding ceremony and are attended by close friends and relatives who apply Mehndi or Henna to the bride’s body. It is considered highly auspicious to adorn the hands and feet of a bride with Mehndi and traditionally the grooms name is written on the palm of the bride’s hand.

The Mehndi ritual is a fun and lively celebration and there is usually a special feast prepared especially for the occasion. Although Mehndi parties are thrown across all regions of India the style and manner of the celebration often varies across different regions according to their own customs and traditions. In the past, Mehndi parties were only attended by women, and female relatives and friends of the bride will dance to music and play the dholak. Nowadays, Mehndi parties are no longer considered a private affair and have become lavish and elaborate celebrations that are attended by both men and women.

Irrespective of age or gender, a Mehndi Party is a hugely popular event and is usually a large celebration which has led to modern parties being held in banquet halls rather than the bride’s family home. Many modern families now also employ a wedding planner who will organise all aspects of the wedding including the Mehndi party.

    > Planning a Mehndi Party
    PLANNING THE MEHNDI PARTY The Mehndi party is held the night before the wedding. Traditionally, it is held in the home of the bride and only includes women from the bride\'s side. It is a fun and relaxing evening for the bride to spend with her closest friends and relatives. The evening is spent applying mehndi (henna) designs to the bride\'s hands, feet and anywhere else! Friends and family may also have some mehndi. While applications are being done their may be music, dance and other entertainment for the guests. Preparation The Bride\'s family usually hosts and pays for this event. They may wish to hire a professional to apply the Mehndi / Mehendi. If there are a large number of guests, it is a good idea to have more than one person applying the mehndi. As well, the bride\'s family may wish to prepare or cater a few dishes or snacks for the guests, to choose some music or entertainment and to have ready gifts or trinkets to hand out at the end of the evening. Ideas & Tips The Mehndi should be a relaxing evening. Here\'s how to keep it stress-free: Try to have all the wedding preparations complete for the next day. That way, everyone will be able to focus on each other and enjoy the festivities. Those who are getting mehndi (especially the bride) might wear clothing that is easy to remove without ruining the designs. Choose some designs ahead of time and show them to the person who is applying your mehandi. Select a design that suits your taste! Make it as simple or heavy as you desire and match it to the cut of your outfits. For example, if your blouse has a deep back, apply a motif on your upper back. In addition to your hands and feet, mehndi may be applied on your arms, back or wrists. Be creative!
