Best Mehendi Designs: Beautiful and Intricate Wedding Patterns

Mehndi is a beautiful art that is unique every time. It has adorned brides and guests for centuries, it is a timeless tradition that has never lost its style and charm.

Artists all over the country work tirelessly on refining their technique and creating new designs so that every bride feels like an exquisite work of art on her wedding day. So, to give you some stunning inspiration for your upcoming wedding or event, we’ve made a list of our favourite mehndi styles and artists around. Take note!

1. Palm and Inner Wrist

Decorating the palm of your hand is the most traditional ways to wear this art, it brings creativity to the phrase ‘hand in marriage’. This photo by talented photographer, @williambichara, shows a beautiful bride with even more stunning mehndi on her palm and wrist.

2. Hand and Fingers

Traditional mehndi on the back of the hand and fingers looks stunning when paired with elaborate jewellery. The colour looks picture perfect when paired with silver, gold and nude adornments. We love this design photographed Cupcake Productions! Just as a designer will intricately embroider luxury fabrics, a Mehendi artist carefully paints the bride’s skin for her special day, and all the focus will be on her.

3. Glitter and Sparkles

A less traditional trend, but nonetheless stunning. This photo shows an ethereal foot design from Ash Kumar Beauty that incorporates red and gold glitter, two colours that would look perfect paired with the classic red and gold lehenga typically worn by Indian brides on their wedding day.

4. Arms and Legs

The mehndi doesn’t need to stop at the hands and feet, as proven by this fantastic design by @_sakshisood. The artwork climbs the limbs with changing or repeating patterns, with perfect symmetry. This is an elaborate and unique way to show that careful thought and creativity has gone into your complete bridal look!

5. Figures

The very imaginative and skilled mehndi artists can also incorporate figures into your design, such as that pictured here. This pattern by Alankritaa by Rashi is a subtle yet striking incorporation of the figure of the bride herself, painted onto her hand. It represents brides and their beauty.

As an age-old symbol of fertility and beauty, this art allows brides to be adorned with stunning artwork for such a special day. So we hope we have inspired you with these amazing designs!
