Mehendi is an event of fun, music, and laughter. We all love it because of the overall gaiety of the environment. There are many reasons to enjoy this event to the fullest and let your hair loose. Even the bride and groom can cast off their reservations and party. Traditionally it’s the event when the bride-to-be is sat down while her hands are decorated with henna. Girlfriends, sisters, and cousins of the bride sing and spread cheer to celebrate the happy day.
Since the bride’s hands are busy, these female friends handle everything for her. So it’s only fair that they get something in return for their efforts.
