Choose any of these and you are good to go –

Swirly pattern: This pattern resembles the peacock feathers design and it has twists and swirls to it. It will go along with that big rock on your hands. People have the tendency to draw the name of their partner inside the mehndi. A mehndi of this pattern would hide letters especially “S” and “a” very nicely. If you want to make the groom feel special and hide their name on your hand or simply just a letter, you can do so perfectly with this mehndi design. The letters are also nicely hidden in the pattern so that the complete name can form. Isn’t it perfect?

Modest full hand: This type of design is called the modest full hand design because it really doesn’t have as much romance to it as the previous one did. It can be more like a simple pattern that is carved on to the hand of the bride. In case your engagement day is very early and the wedding is a few months ahead and you want to go with a simple design, this one is perfect. It is good for all those brides who think that the final show down is on the wedding day and want to keep it minimalistic on the engagement day. This one mostly has a floral pattern at the palm of the hand and then there are floral extensions along the arm. The hand tips are painted fully with henna.

Chic check:  I call this design the chic check because first of all combine it with a sparkling nail polish and it looks really stylish and completely out of the box. It is prefixed check because it has checked patterns. As you can see the top part of the mehndi has a lot of dots and on the back of the hand floral patterns flow across the fingers. When your fiancé would be putting the ring on you, you will look perfect with this mehndi design.

Marwari low key: This design is called Marwari low key because in general the Marwari designs can become really gala. They can become show stopping mehndi designs. But in this case it is just the opposite. It is the kind of design that brides do on their hands when there are parties and special gatherings – but not on days when they are attending weddings. So it is low key and goes perfectly for the engagement. Couple this with a well manicured hand and matching nail polish and you are good to go. The focus will surely be on the inside of the hand with very minute but pretty details on the back of the hand.

Circular and pointed:  As you can see on this mehndi, the main detail has been given to the finger tips and to the palms. The back side of the hand has been given a negligible attention with one floral pattern running down the side of the forefinger. This is a good idea because dense mehndis – especially at the back of the hand tend to hide the ring. Your idea is to make the ring your main hero on the wedding day and this type of mehndi can do it best. The circular patterns compliment the circular ring and the pointed edges go well with the rock.

But that’s not all – what makes this design different from others is its fingertips. As if to mean for it be an engagement design, the finger tips have been given special attention to. Each of the fingers has a different design. You can make any finger stand out by putting light design on it. Usually women like to go easy with the ring finger and you can do the same.
