Upon arrival, I had to congratulate the bride to be and wish her the best for her marriage while talking about what people were going to wear and also about how exciting it was going to be with her and her friends. Not long after I talked to the groom to be who was very excited and slightly nervous about the night ahead as he wore traditional kurta which he has never worn before but he did look very smart in.
I thought I might add that when henna is applied it’s super important not to touch it for at least 20 minutes but the longer you leave it on the more intense it will be. I washed ours off after one hour and it left the beautiful orange design you see above. Henna can last up to 2 weeks but mine has started to wash off mostly now after 1 week.

During the evening the family all took it in turns to feed the bride and groom something sweet and we painted a leaf with henna and wished them luck for the wedding and the future. After that, we all sat in the living together and some of the guests started to play the drums to old Bollywood songs and we all started singing together which made the environment all fun and jolly and we all had a great laugh well into the late evening.
We all had a fabulous night and it sure did set up the atmosphere ready for the wedding that was happening a few days after.
Until next time
