One of the most important things when getting married is choosing your wedding dress. But what is often overlooked, is whether or not the henna design you go for matches your wedding dress. In this article you will find a guide on what henna design would go perfectly with your dress.

If you are wearing a Saree to your wedding, go for an elegant, simple design that will complement the elegance and timelessness of a saree. By going for a similar design to this one from @hennabysadaf on Instagram, you will be the epitome of elegance.

If you are wearing a Pakistani style wedding dress that covers the arms, go for a hands-only design that will complement the intricacy of your dress. By going for a design that only adorns your hands, you don’t end up covering most of your design underneath your sleeves (and it’s a lot cheaper as well!).

If you wear a traditional lehenga with short sleeves, going for a henna design that covers the full underarms is the best option. This way, you won’t have too much bare skin, and the henna design will be intricate and have a beautiful gradient.

If you go for an Indian dress with long sleeves, go for a simple design that only covers the hands. Similarly to wearing a Pakistani gown, you don’t want to end up covering most of your henna design with your sleeves, so going for a simple but elegant henna design on the hands is the way to go.

What is your favorite combination? And what would you do differently? Let me know in the comments!
