They take turns applying the golden-yellow paste on the couple's face, hands, and feet, as it is believed to bring a radiant glow to the skin and good fortune for the upcoming marriage.

By the way, other ladies are also welcome to get henna tattoos if they would like. There will be music, dancing, and of course, food and drinks!
