While those minimal and subtle bridal feet mehndi designs look super flamboyant and exquisite, we believe that somehow, the charm of the timeless full leg mehndi designs is unparalleled.

5 Things To Consider Before Choosing Best Leg Mehndi Design

Choosing the right mehndi design both for your hands and legs is an essential task that so many brides skip out on. While your mehndi artist has a lot of options and designs for you to choose from, they are also happily up for personalization.

Be it a design you saved from online portals, or your wish to include personal elements like portraits, dates, names, and elements that matter to you or your relationship, there’s literally so much you can have incorporated in your mehndi. While brides mostly end up having such personalized elements infused in their hand mehndi designs, choosing the best leg mehndi design is also a task; even if from your mehndi artist’s design book.

So, here are the top five things to keep in mind before finalizing your leg mehndi design.

Do Your Homework
While you’re going to spend truckloads of your time researching about everything that’s trending or a passé for your bridal outfits & jewellery, make sure to take some time out for this too. For how new and unique mehndi themes keep popping up every now and then, it’s good to stay updated with what’s in and what’s not. After all, you might just end up liking something and your mehndi artist might be able to etch it on you.

Know Your Aesthetics
Figure out what design you’d like to have both for your hands and feet. Do you prefer going OTT on your mehndi or a bit subtle? Do you want to have traditional patterns etched on or you want to get a little experimental and opt for a rather contemporary design? Do you want to follow the trends and pick the ones that you like the best or would love to go the classic way? Ask yourself such questions to finalize the overall feel of your mehndi designs because it will make it much easier for you to come up with that design that’s gonna adorn your bridal hands and feet.

What simply brimmed up as a raging trend has become an indispensible part of the entire wedding industry. And for that matter, personalization is one crazy part of mehndi designs that’s loved to bits! There are a lot of personalized elements and motifs that you can have infused in your mehndi design for instance, dates, names, initials, proposal story, couple or family portraits, citylines etc. And of course, not to forget a couple of your favorites right from food, places, and materialistic things to series, characters, hobbies etc. There’s literally so much you can get incorporated in your design. And hence, it is essential to decide if you’d like to have such elements in your henna design or not and if yes then, what would that be. Yes, it’s going to be difficult but boy the resulting design would surely be worth all that.

Seek Your Artist’s Help
Mehndi artists are experts in their field and not just with their designing and kind of work but also with their knowledge. If you cannot decide your hand and leg mehndi design all by yourself, the best way out is to take your mehndi artist’s help. Sit with them, skim through their design book, give your ideas, and use their expertise to come to a final conclusion.

Make A Conscious Choice
Last but not the least, getting your bridal henna done isn’t easy and a matter of few hefty minutes. Both your hand and leg mehndi designs are going to take hours to first be etched and then to dry out. And the more elaborate your mehndi design is going to be, the more time taking it would be. While it is a lot of effort from your artist, it’s also going to be a lot of effort for you to just sit for hours and get it done. So don’t be all under pressure that you necessarily have to go all OTT with your designs. Choosing to go minimal is fine too and has a charm of its own tbh. So while you’re finalizing on that gorgeous mehndi design choose what you’d be getting into.

Now that we’ve satiated your bridal leg mehndi design desires with the choicest pin-worthy inspiration, we believe all that’s left to do is shortlist that one goddamn design that tugs at your heart the most!
