Short answer: Don't do it!
Here's what happens, from a bridal henna specialist with 13 yrs of experience.
✨You plan your henna during an event.
Most probably on your Mehndi night. ✨
Your guests get to watch you get henna done live.
They also get their henna done for the wedding. That's why it is called a Mehndi night!
Every aunty and all your friends in the room want to greet you - followed by hugs, pats, kisses.
Which results in...
You moving. This affects the henna application greatly.
Your mehndi artist tries to fix the design or may be stops the application so as to not mess it up.
This takes time.
Then there are pictures taken.
More people around you which highly increases the risk of someone accidently brushing against your beautiful bridal henna.
Your henna artist graciously fixes all the mess ups despite all the unwanted interruptions.
After all, how the design turns out in the end falls on your henna artist and not the bride.
Not to mention adding more time to the application.
This means the bride has to sit still even longer for application.
To add salt to the wound, everyone starts having fun around you but you are stuck with getting henna done.
