    This is cutural appropriation.  OP is not from a culture where they do henna for weddings.  Just because she studied abroad in India does not make her Indian, nor is she marrying an Indian.  What on earth makes you think this appropriate?

    FYI, just because you can get henna done in mainstream places like the mall does not make it appropriate.
