Beautiful Mehndi Marquees

Mehndi Party or Henna Party as some people may say is a pre-wedding celebration as part of the Hindu and Sikh Culture where a group of the bride’s family and friends get together to apply the Henna body art on the bride’s feet, back of hands and palms to symbolise joy, beauty, spiritual awakening in a tradition that originated in India, South Asia and the Middle East and also involves music and dancing. Tradition says that if the colour of the bride’s Mehndi is a deeper colour, the happier the marriage will be.

We love helping with these colourful, fun celebrations and the Mehndi Party is usually held a day before the actual wedding, and the ‘theme’ with this occasion is colourful with a relaxed lounge feel with guests often sitting on the floor on cushions, or on floor level lounge seating and with a small dance floor for the ladies to do traditional dances.

The perfect tents to use for a Mehndi Party are our Arabian and Bombay tents which are hugely colourful, and are covered with glittering mirrors sewn into the ceiling and walls. Both are accompanied by furnishings of your choice to match the look and feel to the tent. Normally, only women on both sides of the family attend (bridesmaid, mothers, sister’s in law and other family members close to the family). For a usual large Mehndi party, you could have 75 to 150 women attending but depending on the preference of the bride, this could be smaller. Here at The Arabian Tent Company we can completely accommodate your party and wishes, whatever the size they may be.

To say your marquee created the ultimate wow factor is actually an understatement. It absolutely blew everybody away…
