Since we started our small wedding/elopement biz this year, I've experienced so many unique weddings. It's been really interesting, fun and put a new zing in my step.
Last week we did a small wedding that fused East & West. Groom was from India and bride was from U.S. They created their own ceremony and the bride had the henna tattoos that are traditional in Hindu ceremonies. She said it took 7 hours for them to apply, then she was wrapped with some sort of gauze and couldn't touch any of the areas for another 8 hours! They were beautiful and fascinating.

you have to watch that henna on the sheets mind
Friend of mine has just been to an indian wedding in india - quite a lot of the guests have henna done as well - she fell asleep on her hand and it stained on her face - was a job and a half to get it off!

Fortunately no henna stains, but we did have a doozy of a time trying to get the red powder they use on their forehead off of a duvet cover.
