Henna is a huge deal for South Asians of most countries, especially at weddings. Many Sikh, Muslim and Hindu weddings have whole ceremonies dedicated to the application of henna to the bride and women, and there's usually singing and dancing that goes on too. Some traditions state that the darker your henna, the more you will be loved by your husband or mother-in-law (can't remember which it was!) Personally, I find that the darker henna looks better, although once it has been applied, it takes lots of looking after to get it to a nice colour!
I was going through my picture and found these pictures from my sister's wedding 5 years ago, and thought I'd share them!
