Saturday Snapshot- Henna at an Indian Wedding

Hey Guys! It's time for another Saturday Snapshot*! Last Week, I got to attend a wedding in Kolkatta (India), and participate in all the traditional customs. One of those customs involves applying Mehndi, or Henna to all the girls hands. This week, I'm sharing some pictures of the ceremony with you.

Applying the Mehndi

The Bride applies on her arms and just above her ankle on both feet 
The Henna has to dry before you can peel it off

The Mehndi after it has dried and been peeled off


  1. Such amazingly intricate designs! Is there a certain significance or history to this custom? How long does the design last before fading? I'm curious.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

    1. The pattern lasts clearly for 3-4 days. After it starts to fade, it can stay for another week or so. I applied the henna on the 8th of December. It's the Eighteenth today and it's still on my hands!

      Thanks for stopping by!
