Mehndi, otherwise known as henna, is a paste corelated with positive spirits and good luck. According to the tradition the mehendi night is meant to be organised before the marriage to keep the bride’s stress level under control. The green henna paste is applied to the hands and feet of the bride, which house the nerve endings in the body, to help calm the bride’s nerves wishing the bride good health and prosperity as she makes her journey on to a new life of marriage.
