The mehndi or “henna” party is one of the most important functions for a bride in the lead up to her wedding day. But until only very recently, finding an artist in Australia was a challenge. I caught up with one young and immensely talented artist by the name of Alisa Parveen, who gave me an insight into her amazing work as well as share some common myths and misconceptions about henna.
What does it take to plan a hens party? Whether it’s your first time or you’re just after a little inspiration (sans strippers and raunchiness), there’s always that added pressure to throw an unforgettable celebration, but it’s not as simple as it looks. Expectations are always high and whilst a few brides will choose to organize the hens party themselves, trust me, you are better off handing it over to your bestie or bridesmaids. You’re the doting bride-to-be after all, it’s your time to unwind and focus on that big wedding day. Don’t fret, we’re going to help you get organised with these super easy planning tips.
