    I vote for you to do it.  =)  I think it’d be a great way to acknowlegde your culture!  What do your parents have to say?

    After coming back from the last wedding I went to, an epic 3-day Indian wedding (of which I was a bridesmaid for), I would LOVE to have mehndi part of my wedding (and I’m not any part Indian.. but 100% Chinese!)  Heck, I would love to even put my groom on a horse.  Seriously!

    This is YOUR special day 🙂  You can do whatever you want..!  I’m having 3 maids of honor, because I want to haha.  If anyone questions, simply explain that you are of mixed heritage.  Most people probably won’t even ask and just think it’s so cool..!  I live in a very ethnically-diverse neighborhood though, so pretty much everything is accepted here haha.

    I say Do it! Maybe just hands or feet if you feel more comfortable. I love Mehndi!

    i am personally not a fan of the way it looks…. and if you arn’t wearing a traditional indian dress at all it might look a bit out of place.

    I vote feet only. That way you can have the beautiful work, the stunning pictures and the nod to that part of your heritage.

    Mehndi is beautiful but it stays for such a long time! And I think looks a little out of place with the traditional white wedding gown.

    I’m half Indian (my dad is Punjabi) and I absolutely love the way Mendhi looks. I thought about having it for my wedding but decided against it because I felt like it would seem weird and out of place at an American wedding (especially to my relatives who will be coming here from India). That’s just my opinion. You should most definitely do what you want to do and feel comfortable doing.

    I thought about it as well.  I agree that if you’re going to go that route, that perhaps you should do feet only.
