Spring and weddings. Weddings and mehndi. They go together like peanut butter and jelly!
Since its beginnings, mehndi (henna) has been associated with women's rites of passage, especially weddings. Even today, many brides in the Middle East and Southeast Asia wouldn't think of leaving off mehndi when they put on their bridal finery. Mehndi, in fact, is at its most complex and intricate in the dense, lace-like designs of Indian bridal work.
Many charming traditions are associated with mehndi.
