Top 30 Full Hand Mehndi Designs For Your Big Day

Jul 04, 2022

In India, we celebrate every festival with full zeal and October is the month of celebrations from beginning to end. The colors, vibe, and rituals make us celebrate every occasion in variant ways, like Diwali is more about rangoli making, performing puja, and wearing new clothes whereas Karvachauth is the festival where married women get to color their hands with beautiful Mehendi designs and deck themselves up in heavy traditional outfit and jewelry. It is particularly celebrated in northern India, where all Hindu married women fast from sunrise to moonrise for their husband's long and healthy life. 

It is the age-old tradition that all ladies follow wholeheartedly. It is the fourth day after the Purnima in the month of Kartika when the moon arrives late than its usual time. All married ladies break their fast after seeing the moon.

On this day, more than anything the compulsion of applying Mehendi is inexpressible for ladies of all age groups. They hold enough patience and are enthusiastic to get the best out of every design and dark color. But the dilemma of finding the unique and striking design is a task and not an easy one for sure. To help you out, we have selected some very best designs from which you can pick and get your hands inked.
