I can’t remember the first time I saw a picture of a floral mehndi design, but my love for it bloomed the minute I watched Bridgerton.
It’s the same kind of love that I feel for geometric mehndi designs—both styles are refreshingly different than traditional mehndi patterns. It’s a modern aesthetic for the modern bride.
And did I mention that there are a *ton* of ways to imbue meaning into your mehndi just by the flowers you choose?
Maybe it’s you and your fiancé’s favorites. Or it’s a combination of flowers from where you both grew up. Hell, you could even pull a Meghan Markle and have a Commonwealth’s worth all over your arms.
Or err on the side of simplicity and stick with seasonal choices like autumnal florals or soft spring bouquets.
No matter what flowers you pick for your design, you can’t go wrong. Take a look at these designs to get your creative juices flowing.
