Wedding Night

Mehndi Designs
Wedding is an important affair in Pakistan, comprising of a large number of rituals, customs and traditions. One of the important rituals, especially in context of the bride, comprises of 'Henna' (commonly known as Mehndi). As a part of this ritual, the powder of henna leaves is mixed with water, to form a paste. This paste is then applied on the hands as well as the feet of the bride, in the form of intricate patterns. The henna is removed only after the design dries off completely. However, the bride cannot wash her hands and feet with water, for the next 12 hours at least, to make sure that the color comes out to be dark and rich.
No wedding is ever complete without the mehendi in Asian countries like Pakistan. Whichever part of the country the bride may be from, her hands are adorned with the lovely red hue of the mehndi.
Significance of Bridal Mehendi in Pakistan
In context of an Pakistani bride, mehndi is believed to signify the strength of her marriage as well as the amount of love that she will receive in her husband's house. In fact, it is said that the darker the color of the mehendi, the stronger will be the marriage and longer it will last. At the same time, the dark color of henna is also said to mean that the bride will receive a lot of love from her husband as well as her in-laws. This is the reason why, after the application of bridal henna designs, the bride undertakes a lot of efforts, like applying oil or heat, to ensure that the color is dark.
