A Mehndi Festival

A Mehndi Festival is an important pre-wedding ritual that takes place in many Asian cultures and involves the application of intricate henna designs on the hands and feet of the bride. This is thought to bring good luck, fertility and prosperity to the couple. This ceremony is often accompanied by music and dancing and it is customary for the bride’s female friends and relatives to also get their hands decorated with henna.

An essential and metaphorical bridal custom known as the Chinese wedding or Guo Da Li festival occurs to mark the beginning of a elegant proposal between the bride and groom’s people. During this ceremony, which is typically followed by a dinner party for the bride’s family, Pin Li ( betrothal ang pao ) and Jia Zhuang ( bride’s dowry ) are exchanged several gifts.

During this ceremony the wedding is usually escorted to her dad’s residence by male members of her family who greet them at the doorway. She typically wears a red scarf, sweater, or other piece of clothing, as well as gold and silver jewelry, particularly a jewellery made of dome-shaped bells called Kalire, which is said to protect against evil.
