You didn't overprice... hell, if it were my wedding, i would put
aside $1000 (yes, one thousand dollars) to cover the henna alone.
It's got to be that good.
If she can't hack your prices.... don't go there. I would charge
about the same thing for that ammount of work, maybe a little more.
She knows she's getting quality work for her buck, so it's her loss.
If you're really dying for the job, lower it to $250... but don't go
any lower than that. You're worth it girl!

: I've been in contact with a young lady for a while now who wanted
: some Bridal henna... she's going to marry a Pakistanian guy this
: December. I tell all my brides that they can meet me out at one of
: the coffee shops where I henna and get a free sample and see how
: like my work. She has already met me for this and I gave her about
: $15-20 worth of henna.
: Well, she's been in contact more recently to set up her appointment
: and such. She wants very traditional henna, feet up to the ankle,
: hands both sides and arms both sides all the way up to the elbow.
: told her it would be $400 because that is A LOT of work when it's
: very intricate and I know I'd be there about six hours. Now
: of saying, "Okay let's just do feet and hands, then" she's saying
: doesn't want the henna at all.
: What gives?
