South Asian Weddings
mendhi night - as an observer and not a participant?
Okay - I haven't actually had a conversation with my FI about this and wanted to get a feel from you ladies first.
My FI's family is from Bangladesh and I am Canadian. We are attempting to incorporate both aspects of our culture and traditions into our wedding day.
We are having a western ceremony followed by a reception. I am wearing a white dress for the ceremony and for the first dance and then switching into a lengha later that night.
I know we will be having a mendhi night but I am not keen on the idea of being covered in henna when I walk down the aisle in my white wedding dress. I love mendhi and it is beautiful...but is it rude to have that night and not participate in the mendhi stuff? I know I am the bride-to-be .....is this rude towards his parents?
