Mehndi/welcome Party suggestions

Sophia, on August 15, 2023 at 2:00 PM Posted in Do It Yourself 0 1

Hi! My fiance and I are getting married next month and I am looking for advice on a timeline for a Mehndi/welcome party. I am South Asian, but he is not and most of our guests will not be South Asian, so I want to of course honor my culture by doing some Mehndi traditions, while also treating it like a welcome party so our South Asian guests don't feel excluded.

I am wondering how the timeline for such an event should be, like do we have (1) a cocktail hour, then a couple entrance, dancing and then dinner or (2) couples entrance, cocktail hour, dinner, and then dancing, (3) or something entirely different?

Also what Mehndi traditions do you suggest incorporating that also allow non-South Asians to feel include?

Any advice is appreciated!

    Many guests would enjoy the Mehndi experience. You might fight some shorter-term coloring they could use on themselves. And maybe provide some patterns they could follow. You may want to add some other activities to keep people occupied.
