The mehndi party is held night before the wedding. Traditionally, it is held in the home of the bride and only includes women from the bride’s side. It is a fun and relaxing evening for the bride to spend with her closest friends and relatives. The evening is spent applying mehndi (henna) designs to the bride’s hands, feet and any where else! Friends and family may also have some mehndi. While applications are being done their may be music, dance and other entertainment for the guest.
The bride’ family usually hosts and pay s for this event. They may wish to hire a professional to apply the mehndi. If there are a large number of guests, it is a good idea to have more than one person applying the mehndi. As well, the bride’s family may wish to prepare or cater a few dishes or snacks for the guests, to choose some music or entertainment and to have ready gifts or trinkets to hand out at the end of the evening.
