As some of you might know that I have had a busy few weeks and my social media hasn’t been as busy as we were all preparing for a family Mendhi and a wedding. Preparing took so much time and it is super surprising how much you need and how much needs to be planed out. It was a headache getting everything all sorted out but thank goodness everything was sorted out in time for us all and we had an amazing time at both events. I thought I would tell you all about both of the celebrations seeing as they were both amazing and so much fun. Seeing as the Mehndi happened before the wedding I think its best to post this one up first but fear not the wedding blog post will be up in the upcoming weeks.
Anyways a little background on a Mehndi for some of you don’t know what a mehndi is. A mehndi celebration and it is basically a pre-wedding celebration for many religions including Hindus and Muslims. During a Mehndi, you basically celebrate the upcoming marriage which is usually a few days after the Mehndi. Music is played, food is shared and basically, you have a fabulous time with your family and friends. Henna is applied to the bride and also to the women of the family. Celebrations usually happen at the bride’s house and can last late into the night. I know this isn’t always how everyone celebrates Mehndis but its how my family celebrate it and I am just saying how they do it as a rough idea for people who don’t know about it.
