Farah's Bridal Henna

As with all bridal henna appointments, we make sure to meet with the bride before hand.  A pre-wedding consultation ensures that all the details are sorted, glitter colors are matched, and the designs are picked.  The last thing you want is a bride who has no idea what she wants to get, and then turns into an indecisive person with the stress of choosing her design.

I met with Farah a few months before her bridal henna consult.  As part of the package, she also had a custom design created for her bridal henna, which looked something like this:

She wanted an addition of bands to break up the floral-paisley design, which were added during the application.

One of the best things about henna parties is the decor!

Farah had her location decorated with sequined pillows, vibrant scarves, and embellished matkas.  A matka is a traditional pot made out of red clay, historically used to store water.  The cool clay from the earth would keep the water temperature cool, so that families that can not afford a refrigerator, were able to drink cool water in the hot sun. Of course, matkas are still used in villages, small cities, and low-income homes around the world.  The ones used in decoration are usually steel or aluminum decorated with vibrant fabrics, sequins and ribbons.

We also incorporated glitter and stone accents to match Farah's attire for the mehndi party.  With bright fushcia pink, teal, and gold accents, the dark henna paste popped beautifully.

It was a relaxed bridal session, with just a few guests around.  Farah's bridal henna took just a little over 3 hours to complete!  Here are some photos to share with you!
