We had decided earlier that me and a few other important people would get our mehndhi done a day before the actual henna party. Since I was going to be dressed up and decked out, I didn't want the henna to get on my clothes. And it would give us a chance to mingle easily without messing up our designs. The party the next day was fabulous. There was plenty of socializing, dancing, and great food of course. Click on the following link to see those photos.
The highlight of the day was seeing my grandparents after almost three years. It was a real effort for them to travel down from Mumbai in central India. They are one of the main reasons I wanted my wedding to take place in India and I was so happy that they were there to share this with me.
