    I have no knowledge of mehndi customs, but I think the pictures you posted are lovely, but I would wonder if it would be seen if you only had it done on your feet. depending on the length of your gown and the shoes you are wearing I would hate for it to go un-noticed, I would go for feet and hands like picture 2.

    Is the at home reception the only reception you’re having? If its not, I’d do both hands and feet. It would be cool to have pictures of you in the traditional “western” bridal look and then a fusion type look at the second reception.

    Hands and feet! In India, I know for most weddings the bride gets them done on both hands and feet! I think it’s pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

    @mrsbruff2b I will also be having an indian ceremony here as my fiance is muslim and I will be getting mehndi done then the week after will be having a destination wedding in Mexico. I’m thinking of only getting the mehndi done on the insides of my hands and feet because I know it will not wash off before my destinayion wedding ceremony and I’m not sure I want it to be visible in the pictures at hte destination. How far apart is your mehndi being done from the time you have your destination wedding? I noticed you also commented on coming to the wedding bee meet up in Toronto and it would be awesome if you could come as we have a few similarities in our weddings ๐Ÿ™‚
