A girl’s wedding is not just a three-day event. It is much more than that (at least for most of them out there). It is that time of her life when years of imaginary planning finally come to end. And trust me when it’s a wedding, the groom is the last thing on her mind. It is ‘her’ wedding. Every single thing needs to be on point, whether it is the venue, the outfits or the pre-wedding celebrations. Coming to celebrations, mehendi and sangeet are considered an auspicious part of the week long wedding ceremony. There is an age old belief connected to the mehendi in our culture which says –The darker the colour of the mehendi, the deeper is the love between the couple. We are not sure how true that is. Anyway, bridal mehendi is a huge deal for every girl and like any other girl, our celebs spend a lot to get the perfect design to embark on a new journey. Here is a list of celebrity mehendi designers and designs from your favourite celebrity wedding.
Divyanka Tripathi’s wedding was all over social media when they got married. Her mehendi design was totally hatke.

Quite a unique concept for to try and kudos to the artist to manage to draw it so brilliantly. It was done by a mehendi artist from Delhi named Vivek who charges a minimum of Rs 11,000 for portrait mehendi designs.
Hunar Hale who was last seen in Thapki Pyaar Ki caught our attention with her beautiful mehendi design on her wedding.
