Does anyone know of any henna or mendhi artists in the cancun/playa del carmen area? We're having an East Indian wedding and henna/mendhi is a big traditional aspect. We don't want to use those vendors that sell pre-made henna tattoos that you see in their catalogs...we're looking for an actual henna artist.

I actually don't know any but I just wanted to say that its so cool that your doing henna for your wedding. I love henna! Are you planning to have a henna party the day before? If you can't find someone do you have a friend or family member that could do it?

Yea..we're having a henna party the night before the wedding...of course, if the resort allows us to (which is a requirement of the resort). If the wedding turns out to be big, we dont want to impose on a family member/friend to do everyone's henna...considering it takes while because it's so intricate.

I'm having similar issues, except we're getting married in Jamaica. We may end up taking someone from the US who can do mehndi, sari draping and hair/makeup etc..obviously we have to pay for her travel, but it may work out in the end b/c she does a little bit of everything.

Hi Everyone!!

 

I am a henna artist based in London, United Kingdom. I run my own henna business called Henna by Nitu, and I specialise in bridal henna as well as henna for parties and festivals. I offer a friendly, professional henna service customised to your needs and requirements. I can do traditional henna designs as well as comtemporary ones, and do not used stencil templates, i work freehand with a henna cone. I guarantee a very dark stain.

 

I would love the opportunity to do henna at your weddings, all I would require is flights and accomodation, and I guarantee to provide you the best henna service for yourselves and your family. I would love to make your mendhi nights amazing, and being of Indian origin myself I fully understand the customs and traditions that go with mendhi and weddings.

 

I have been a henna artist for many years now, and I understand how difficult it can be to find henna artists in Jamaica, Mexico and other destinations, and I have therefore decided to extend my European henna business to afar. Its people like you that can make this happen for me by employing my services for your weddings. You will not be disappointed!

 

I would love to hear from you, please email me on hennabynitu@yahoo.co.uk

There are vendors off 5th avenue in Playa Del Carmen that claim they can do Henna/Mendhi but I don't think they will be doing anything intricate. Have you taken a trip down there?

Yes, I went down there last year but that was before we decided to have a DW...so I didn't bother to look. I know they do henna tattoos down there but that's different from regular henna (and I don't want to take the risk of getting black henna---which is terrible!!!). At this point, we're thinking of just getting henna from here and flying down with it.

Hi Girls,

I just wanted to write and let you know that I just had an Indian/Hindu wedding in Cabo San Lucas. I probably faced a lot of the issues you are also going through so if you need any help let me know. I am thinking about getting into the wedding planning business in general because I hired a coordinator in Cabo, and ended up doing everything myself because she knew so little bout Indian weddings. Regarding the henna, I had mine done in San Diego (where I live) the night before leaving for Cabo and since that was 5 days before the wedding I had to take all sorts of hilarious measures to keep it dark, but it turned out awesome. We had a mehndi party the weekend before leaving because I could not find someone in Cabo to do it so the sangeet in Cabo had no mehndi. This worked out well cause if you have a destination wedding its kinda nice to do one local event so people can see you and come to that in case they dont come to the wedding.

Also, my bridal mehndi girl was willing to come to Cabo and may be willing to go to Cancun...let me know if you are interested!

Thanks, Suman. So nice to meet a bride who has done an indian DW. :) The mendhi is my biggest issue right now. But then again, I feel like I'm going to have 20 luggages to carry all the little things needed for an indian wedding to Cancun. How did you keep your mendhi dark for 5 dayshuh.gif I'm worried if I go into the ocean, it will lighten!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
