Things to know before you get started.
6 Steps to Wedding Henna
  1. 1. Understand the significance

    Have a conversation about the significance of the henna tattoos and how they will factor into your wedding personally, not just for you, but for your guests, too.

  2. 2. Read up on additives

    Examine the ingredient list, and make sure to read product reviews of henna pastes. Doing your research now will help you ask the most important questions when you hire a henna professional.

  3. 3. Sample the services

    Request trials from your top artists, and be sure to photograph the work for documentation purposes. Photos will also help you make your final decision.

  4. 4. Create a contract

    Establish a contract with your henna artist that details the scope of the work, including pricing as well as the schedule for henna tattooing on the big day.

  5. 5. Get photos done

    Prior to the wedding, establish a time when you can take photographs of the artwork. You'll definitely want your wedding photographer to capture how beautiful your henna looks.

  6. 6. Take care of it

    On your wedding day, prepare your skin for the henna tattoo by cleaning, exfoliating and moisturizing the skin. Once the henna tattoo is applied, allow it to dry thoroughly.
