Since the bridesmaids have different schedules and come from different areas and the bride's family is in Markham, it was decided that we would get our own Mehndi done - and of course the first person I thought of was my dear friend Darling with whom I used to work. I loved it when she tattooed my arm several years ago when my old boss and co-workers were getting their mehndi done for Eid, and I loved the intricate designs she's drawn up for me this time too! Thanks Darling!
The mehndi looks really dark and glossy in these pictures because the henna (sealed with a lemon juice-sugar mixture) is still on. Right now I still have saran wrap around my hands and arms so the henna can stay on my skin for as long as possible - it looks ridiculous, but I want to make sure the color comes out so Darling's efforts won't be wasted!
