Traditionally, brides adorn their hands and feet with breathtaking patterns that mimic the embroidery in their bridal gowns & jewelry.  The palms are decorated with the most intricacy because they come out the darkest.  The backs of the hands can be just as detailed but usually tend to be a little more subtle on the hand and more detailed on the arm.  Most brides decorate their arms to the elbow so that the henna can show through the bangles which often cover half of the forearm.  The feet are similarly decorated and can cover as far as the knees.  These fine-detailed patterns can take 2-6 hours depending upon intricacy and coverage.

Today women of all cultures are adopting the beauty of the henna body painting and Indian rituals (wearing saris, bindis, etc.) in their weddings as well as other special events.   The reddish-brown color of the henna not only looks good with traditional costumes but is quite gorgeous next to a white or off white wedding gown.  And the designs are not limited to hands and feet but, depending on the dress, may flow well on an upper back, chest, arm, etc.

Scheduling a Consultation with your Artist:

  • It is recommended to schedule a free 30-minute consultation for all bridal events at the Silk & Stone Spa where you can preview hundreds of bridal henna patterns, get a time estimate, receive a sample design and address any other concerns. Bridal henna should be scheduled 2-3 days before the wedding event for best results. This will ensure the darkest stain on the day of your event.
  • If you are allergic to any particular ingredients, plants or foods, please let your artist know before henna application.
  • Massages, manicures and pedicures should be done before your henna session to avoid loss of any henna color.
  • For extensive bridal henna or henna that is applied to the palms, we recommend that you schedule someone to come pick you up from our studio once your henna is done so that you don't have to do the driving.

 

What You Need to Know Before Your Appointment:

  • It is best to wear loose clothing or clothing that will not touch the area where you would like to get the henna.  It takes about 30-60 minutes for the bridal henna to dry before something can touch it without smudging.
  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment to get settled and discuss any last minute needs with your artist. 
  • Please be sure that neither you nor your guests have any lotion, oils, creams, etc. in the areas where you would like to be hennaed.  The oils may get in the way of the stain and prevent a dark henna stain.  
  • Leaving the dry paste on your skin most of the day or overnight will give you the best color.  Please view the Henna Aftercare Instructions for more details.
