A question of wedding/henna propriety
Posted by Kenzi on August 9, 2001 at 03:27:45:I am going to a friend's wedding this weekend and want to henna
myself as part of my usual ritual of adornment that includes my
clothes, shoes, makeup, hair, jewelry etc.
I got to thinking/wondering if this is appropriate? My friend is not
of a hennaing culture and neither is her fiance and probably no one
in the wedding party or any of the guests. So is there something
inappropriate about hennaing onesself for such an event? The wedding
is not in New York City, where almost anything goes!
What about, just hypotheticaly, if the friend were, say, Indian? And
I wasn't part of her henna party, could I still show up with my own
henna? Any ideas?
I am thinking of doing simple finger rings (a la Loretta Roome) which
I think are so elegant. My point is, I am not doing anything that
would be too freaky for people to handle.
