Mehendi Ideas to Get Your Husband’s Name Written
Find cute ideas to have your husband’s name written in your Mehndi
Let him keep looking for his name in your beautiful bridal mehndi! Brides, have fun getting the groom’s name in your Mehndi
One of the most exciting rituals during the mehndi at an Indian wedding is to have your husband’s name written on your hands with Mehendi. To keep your husband guessing where his name is hidden, we have some fantastic Mehendi design ideas that would let you conceal his name between the designs.
1. The Cupid’s strike
What’s better than this idea to let your loved ones convey that he is the one? Make a heart pattern on your palm and strike the name of your to-be husband inside the heart as if Cupid has struck it. It is an utterly romantic way to create a mehndi design inspired by the Greek mythological love messenger.
2. The letter scatter
Simply ask your mehndi artist to scatter all the alphabets in your groom’s name all over your mehndi. Later, ask him to find all the letters. It is a good idea if he is a scrabble enthusiast or likes playing with words.
3. The fingertip
Usually, the mehndi artists fill the fingertips with blobs of henna to bring out the tips of the hands. Use this space to write one letter each on every finger. If the name is a small one, you could get each character or letter written on the fingertip and then add a design around it.
4. On the ring finger’s circle
Have your wedding goals fulfilled by this idea. On the back of your palm, get the name of your husband written in a small font all around your ring finger and cover it later with patterns. The back of your hand is always visible, so is your husband’s name.
5. Engraving the meaning
The best part of an Indian wedding is that your Hindu husband would surely have a Hindu name, which has a meaning. Unless his name is complicated, you can draw the meaning of the name in the form of pictorial representation. Like, you are drawing a diya for ‘Deepak’. It can look beautiful as well as creative.
6. Creating patterns and designs
One can also use creative calligraphic fonts to write the name. Not only do they look different, but they also add an extra flavour to the henna design. A lot of mehndi artists also have a variation of calligraphic fonts to choose from.
7. Water droplets
The back of the hand is an excellent space for exercising your creativity in mehndi designs. Instead of creating a henna pattern on the back of your fingers, simply have the letters of your husband’s name drawn artistically, one below the other, and running down the index finger.
8. A henna bracelet
Another idea if you’re ready to go out of the box is a henna bracelet. Instead of interfering with the artist’s henna design, all you need is to get your spouse’s name beautifully drawn around your wrist.
9. Make way for the name
This idea is that the first letter of the name to be the star of the design. In simpler words, leave a large gap within the mehndi design, and either write the entire name or the initials of the name in this clear space.
10. A henna nail art
A popular trend these days is to experiment with your nails. So while getting your nail art done, you can get the full name (if it occurs to be a short one) or just the first alphabet of the name done upon every nail. So while the mehndi would fade away in a few days, the initials on your nails stay will stay for longer.
Hope your creativity ran wild with these ideas. You may never know, the story of searching your husband’s name could be a memorable one.
