Why Do Muslim Brides Wear Henna?

We are familiar with the beautiful laali (also known as henna) designs we see on Muslim brides as they prepare to seal their nuptials. Though many still ponder the reason behind this tradition.

Well ,they are usually very colorful and artfully made to beautify the bride on her big day. Traditionally, the laali is used to cleanse the bride, but nowadays, it is more of a fashion statement than anything else.

In recent years, brides from various parts of the country have started to tap into this bridal fashion, irrespective of their tribe or religion.

Laali designs are not restricted to brides alone, however. You can also have them done for other special occasions too.

Unlike tattoos, the laali is temporary and washes off within a couple of days or weeks.

The general idea is for your skin to look beautiful with any of the unique lace designs.
