Mehndi has been an important part of Pakistani culture since a long time. Mehndi is basically made by cutting and fine grinding of the hina or mehndi leaves.

If we particularly talk about mehndi with respect to the brides or wedding Mehndi then mehndi is now central part of wedding.

It is a type of ceremony in which mahndi is applied on the hands; arms and foot of the bride in order to enhance her beauty and her friends and sisters also apply on their hands.

There are so many designs and styles of mehndi that sometimes it makes you confused. Some of the most common mehndi designs include traditional, royal, modern, contemporary and Arabic etc.

There are various methods of applying mehndi on the hand. For instance, in Arabic style mehndi we use thick and filled designs that have a flow in them. Moreover, the Arabic mehndi consists of various flowers and other patterns that are filled with different shades.

On the other hand, the Pakistani and Indian mehndi designs are much delicate and sensitive. They are very detailed and thin as our brides love to fill their hands and arms and due to this reason they take more time for application as compared to Arabic mehndi.

Following are some of the ways by which you can select the design for mehndi in Pakistan.
