Whether you’re transforming your guests through dramatic body paint, or intricate henna on the morning of your big day. Or you’re gifting them some fun, transformative entertainment during the day – body and henna artists offer a great way to make your wedding feel unique.
Henna in particular, if you’re not Indian, is a fascinating art created by very talented individuals. These skin decorations, big or small, will offer your guests that tattoo experience, without the permanence. A fun, and pretty design that’ll keep reminding loved ones of your wedding, days after the event.
Away from the traditional henna artists, there are also countless other ways to decorate yours, your guest’s and the bodies of the performers at your wedding. Because not all body artists are hired to paint loved ones, some are there to paint themselves, or fellow entertainers.
For example, you could hire dancers to perform at your wedding. A talented crew tasked with entertaining your guests in-between events or asked to mingle among your loved ones, and cause a little mischief. This ongoing performance could be significantly elevated by having the dancers painted from head to toe. Possibly to match the theme of your reception, or as creatures from the jungle!
Maybe you’d like guests to be greeted at the reception by some weird and wacky artists, painted in bright colors and wearing flamboyant costumes. Performers who could then walkabout the event and become your own living pieces of art. That’ll certainly get guests talking while they sip their cocktails!
If you’d rather the focus of creating art was more on your guests, than entertainers, then there are many ways you can do it. Kids in particular will love having their face painted, and you can go one step further than the standard fairground face paint style. And find someone to create glitter designs, or apply ecologically friendly make-up looks. Something different from the average.
Having these kinds of performers, and henna artists at your wedding is a great way to bring people together, and create a little buzz of excitement. Plus, everyone will look spectacular in your wedding photos, and very different from their usual selves!
Nail paint artists at weddings are a massive trend right now, with many vendors creating a niche for themselves by focusing on unique styles or methods. For instance, there are pop-up nail bars that can digitally print designs right onto your fingers. Meaning guests could be walking around showing off their favorite bands, celebrities, or something made especially for your wedding! Maybe a unique logo, or hashtag used to celebrate the day?
Beyond digital nail art, more traditional nail painting also offers guests a fun experience and the chance to get a professional look applied. Which could also be created using the color palette of your wedding theme?
If you want your guests to return home with something more statement-worthy than just painted nails, then why not consider a body artist. Temporary tattooing for example offers a fun way for your loved ones to get the look of a tattoo, without worrying about living with it for the rest of their lives. Artists could roam around your reception, and create designs on request. Or set them up with a tattoo station, and let your guests come to them.
Dramatic, or intricate henna tattoos make for a fantastic event souvenir, and will help elevate guests’ experience on the day. But maybe you’d rather the tattooing was kept just for you, the couple. Why not get coordinated tattoos on the day of your wedding? Something that links to your theme perhaps, or to something mentioned in your vows?
Your wedding party could get in on the action too, and have tattoos applied that’ll help unite the group, and make some sweet photos. Team bride? The initials of the couple? Whatever you dream up, it’ll add a fun twist to the typical wedding day morning rituals.
