Ever wondered why we apply mehndi on our hands and feet just before our Big Day?
Besides lending color to the hands, Mehndi is a very powerful medicinal herb. Weddings are stressful, and more often than not, the stress causes headaches and fevers. As the wedding day approaches, the excitement mixed with nervous anticipation can take its toll on the bride and the groom. Application of mehndi can prevent too much stress because it cools the body and keeps the nerves from becoming tense.
So you see ladies, sitting for three hours just to apply mehndi on your hands and feet will well be worth it, especially if you’ve managed to capture a fun-filled and quirky pose, like any of the ones below:
