What a festive sight! Banquet halls enveloped in flowers, guests in traditional attire, and examples of intricate henna designs.

Indian brides often take part in a Mehendi ceremony, where henna is applied in beautiful designs to the bride and female family members.  The deeper the color, the more good luck the couple will have!
