This design celebrates what you plan on doing for your husband. Keeping a fast is no easy task but the entire tradition is beautiful when we do it from the heart. This mehendi design is a picture out of that romantic Hindu traditional book which traces how married women pray for the long lives of their husbands. Captured beautifully with henna, the diyas on the gingers and the small 'bel' on the right makes it look all so poetic and romantic right?

This design is perfect if you have a quiet [personality. It shows your simplicity in a delicate way and is not very heavy if you don't like your hands too full of henna all over.
Design Five: Husband & Wife Design

If you love Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge then you are an utter romantic soul. This mehendi design totally captures the essence of the festival with the husband on one hand and the wife with properly detailed gajra, blouse and thali with the moon on hand. It has the curtain as well.
Design Six: Devi Roop

I found this to be a very powerful design. While one side has Durga Maa, an avatar of every woman, the other side is all floral running parallelly, proving the many facets of every female. If you are a strong personality then this is your design for sure.

Not all of us like delicate designs and we even worry about the colour pay off. This design shall take care of that. The bold design which has been drawn with perfection with floral patterns is perfect if you want your mehendi to be bold yet classy. Bold and thick designs generally have a darker colour and these tips will make them appear darker by the minute.
Design Eight: Only For Him

What makes this design stand out is the shading of the moon which brings out the man's shadow in mehendi. The sharp lines and simplicity of this design which speaks a lot, had my attention the moment I saw it.
So which mehendi design do you like? Have a Happy Karva Chauth this year.
