Bridal Mehndi For Your Feet December 24, 2015 08:00
Bridal Henna or Mehndi is a tradition going back many years and is still happening to this day! Women were first adorned as part of a fertility ritual. This practice continued throughout the centuries where it developed into part of marriage celebrations, and spread throughout the South Asia, The Middle East and North Africa. Nowadays it is common for Hindu weddings, Muslim weddings, Sikh weddings, and even some Jewish weddings.
Adorn Your Feet
When we picture Bridal Mehndi we usually imagine the bride's palms decorated in stunning, complex patterns with henna. However not everyone knows that you can also have other body parts decorated to match, most commonly the ankles and feet. It looks so beautiful! Weddings are extra-special, so why not make the extra effort by having your feet matching your hands? Here are just a few styles of bridal Mehndi for your feet.
Style Of Mehndi
The patterns you see depend on the bride’s requirements. Some may prefer a heavy design with not much skin on show. This picture shows us a very simple but elegant design where the bride wanted the paisley to be the main centre piece. Something like this is reasonably quick to apply, since the lines are simple and there is lots of blank space. The final colour will be much darker, and different colours can also be added.
Mehndi designs incorporate many different styles and shapes. The most common patterns throughout all the styles are flowers, paisleys and leafs. We can apply the henna to any part of the foot, in any pattern you desire. This design is focused on the middle of the foot and this design is great for the simple bride and looks great when wearing her bridal shoes as the whole design is clearly on display.
Traditional MehndiThis is a more complex design which draws on traditional mehndi styles, which doesn’t leave much free space unmarked by the henna. The designs can be made as complicated or as simple as you like! With the more traditional pattern you can be a little bit more creative by adding your new husband to be’s name or initial!

We recommend that the Henna is applied at least 48 hours before your event to allow the colour to develop fully. The final result will be much darker than shown in the above images.
