Weddings in India is considered to be a sacred and sanctified ceremony.

The occasion of Mehndi ceremony is often one of the most important pre-wedding rituals especially for the bride. It is a fun filled ritual, which is celebrated mainly by the bride's family.

Often hidden within the mehndi pattern the name or initials of the groom are applied.

There is also a common saying - “Darker the color of mehndi, more the husband's love”
