Mehndi holds an important significance in Indian weddings. Every desi girl from her childhood, dreams of getting her hands adorned with the best and the most unique bridal mehndi designs for her D-Day. I don’t know about you girls – but I am totally crazy about mehndi! The mere sight of bridal mehndi designs photos leave me with an urge to get married ASAP!
Jokes apart, this age old tradition of applying mehandi to a soon-to-be bride’s hands has an interesting reason behind it. It is said that since mehendi leaves (Lawsonia Inermis) contain properties that provide cooling effect, they prevent the nerves from getting too tensed. The soothing henna paste on the skin keeps all that wedding related hibbie-jibbies, stress and headaches at bay! Quite an amusing fact, right? So mehendi doesn’t only add the beauty to an Indian bride’s look – but it also helps to keep her calm throughout the wedding functions.

20. Black Bridal Mehndi Designs
A lot of modern Indian brides are ditching the regular henna and opting for black mehndi.
Unlike regular henna (which is mostly all-natural), black mehndi is adulterated with chemicals, hence, you don’t have to wait for it to dry so that it stains on your hands. Chinese henna or black mehndi gives out a dark black stain immediately on the skin. Hence, if you find it hard to roam around with natural mehndi on your hands for hours to get that beautiful deep brown stain, you can opt for black mehandi designs instead.
P.S. since black mehndi contains a lot of chemicals, it would be better if you do a patch test with it first – before you use it for your D-day.
21. Full Palm Intricate Bridal Mehndi Designs
A lot of brides wear full sleeved blouses with their bridal lehenga, sharara, or salwar suit. So mostly with such wedding outfits, the mehndi design on their arm get covered with the blouse and only the mehndi design on the palms stays visible.
