The white wedding dress and henna. Do they go together?

Ever wondered what a beautiful white wedding dress would look like with henna? I’ve had the opportunity to do henna for several brides wearing white and trust me, it looks amazing. The balance of henna against white is just too stunning to deny. Mariah incorporated traditional henna into her wedding from her Trinidadian roots for her wedding day. In Trinidad it’s common for both Indian and Muslim communities to get henna done when they get married. It’s part of the beautification process that includes getting your hair and makeup done. Ideally getting the henna done at least 2 days before the wedding is best. Her henna came out beautiful and really dark. You may notice that Mariah has what looks like two tones of henna stain. There is henna and there is also jagua in her designs. Basically, two mediums were used to give her a two tone affect (which I personally am so loving right now). Henna will always stain a natural reddish brown whereas jagua paste (aka hengua) stains a black stain. Both are all natural and made by us at Henna Sooq. Mariah adds the final touches by placing gold anklets on. She’s beautifully flawless. Through an act of pure love, respect and humbleness, her husband gently pours warm water over her feet and gently washes them. This act is a symbol of unity, intimacy and the spiritual bond between husband and wife. So beautiful! So when you think of white wedding dresses, think of just how gorgeous henna looks on white.

Back in Maryland

Back in Maryland

I’m back! I got in late Thursday evening. Stay tuned for my coming blog post: 2 Cities in Ten Days. I drove with all 6 kiddos across the border into the USA from  Canada which took me a total of about 12 hours. It should really only be about 9 hours but we stopped a few times and I got really tired a few times but we made it. It’s great to be back home in Maryland. People always ask me if I prefer Canada over the USA or vice versa. I actually like each place for different reasons. I always will love home (Canada) since those are my roots. Maryland is an area where I feel like I’ve become myself and that I’m able to fully express who I am and what I do. People ask if I’m scared or if bad things have happened to me because I am Muslim but that isn’t the case and I really take that as a blessing because I don’t know what I’d do in those situations. Our main goal is to make it home though, right? So I need to focus on that and not everything else because my husband needs me and my kids want their mother. This discussion could be a whole other blog post. Updates. I apologize for any delayed email replies and hair/henna consultations as I handle those myself and I’m pretty backed up. I’ll be playing catch up for a little bit. I also owe you all the final winners of our 30 days of Ramadan Prizes. I’ll have that up and posted by tomorrow....
