Mehndi is the name for the traditional art of henna tattoo patterns in India and the Middle East.
Mehndi, also know as henna, is made from a powder derived from plant leaves.
If you prefer to have a more modern Mehndi that will not last beyond your wedding day, the trend today is to use colored glitter gels, crystals and exotic designs that will only last one day.
Your Mehndi party will typically be held the night before the wedding.
When you are choosing designs for your Mehndi, look at several designs ahead of time.
