my sister's bridal mehandi




bridal mehandi, typically covering the entire forearm, with a drawing of the bride on one hand and the groom on the other. the name of the groom is hidden in this intricate collage [usually behind the engagement ring] so the groom needs to hunt for his name, and in the process admire the mehandi!
