    Henna is put not only on weddings but in many occasions.
    It is a kind of makeup for woman in many countries.
    Signification???to look beautiful I think.
    In a wedding almost all invited women put Henna.
    The gifts that can be given in a wedding are different :household appliances,clothes,money,food...
    PS:Henna is put differently from one region to another

                          The times i've participated as I was a kid, so I'm sure i stuck my figures in the colours a few times

                          I think it was the bride and her mom, not sure though

                            I thought that all the young women have to do it as well

                              From a Hindu thing

                              One feature of the bride's wardrobe which has become popular abroad is the use of henna or mehndi to decorate her hands and feet.

                              It's said that you can tell how well a new bride is being treated by her in-laws from how long it takes for the mehndi to wear off.

                              Mehndi treatments are increasingly available in salons or you can get mehndi mix at any Indian grocery store for a do-it-yourself job. (But be sure to practice on paper first! Mehndi doesn't wash off.)
