I’ve always loved getting my mehndi done. The intricate patterns. The deep dark stain. Even the smell (I know. I’m weird). And after a lifetime of watching on-screen Bollywood brides get bedecked with mehndi past their elbows and knees, I couldn’t wait for my turn.


Even though I was crazy excited for my bridal mehndi, preparing for it was pretty low on the wedding planning priority list. Like, last-on-the-list low. Which means I gave very little thought to the actual design and just picked one from the artist’s portfolio.


You see, I’m IG-averse (proud introvert), so I didn’t know that there was a whole world of imaginative, creative, and original mehndi designs to choose from. Portraits of you and your fiancé. Portraits of your pets. City skylines. Icons representative of your career and values. Designs so fantastic that you’re only limited by your artist’s skillset.


Out of the many striking designs I’ve discovered (like the minimalist ivy one, #hellobridgerton #bringbacktheduke), geometric mehndi stands out as an all-time fav. I know, I know. The woman who hates math likes something related to…math??


Ah, but geometry in visual design is different. I get lost in the predictable symmetry and refreshing minimalism. And the fact that something that sounds so boring (ugh math UGH) can actually be full of personality and character.


But, like everything else, don’t just take my word for it. Get inspired with this round-up of striking geometric mehndi designs.
