image via smitten Indians celebrate colorful. The groom might arrive on a white horse and the bride is decorated with tradtional henna painting. Traditional Indian brides wear pink and red saris on their wedding day, adorning themselves extravagantly with as much jewelry as possible. VERY GOOD IDEA. Liv loves jewelry. Henna staining, a customary art form, is still practiced by Indian brides to be. On the eve of her wedding vows, following a traditional ceremonial cleansing, the bride-to-be will have her hands and feet painted with henna, in beautiful paisley or medallion patterns. LOVE THE HENNA ON THE FEET, maybe my next tatoo inspiration!? Instead of a ring a special wedding gift is given to the bride, a necklace signifying her married status.
