Wedding Party/Sangeet Services
Designs for bridesmaids, other bridal party members and guests will be charged
at an hourly rate of $70. We do custom work for each client using traditional
motifs but in a simpler format than the brides henna.
Our minimum age to apply henna is (6) years.
We recommend booking (1) hour per 8-10 people. You will be charged only for
the time we actually spend applying henna to guests, and any unused time will
be credited back to you. (Likewise, we can charge additional time if needed.)
We also have relationships with other Birmingham-based artists who can be
brought in for very large events where having two or more artists working
simultaneously would be convenient and less time-consuming
Here are some examples of designs that guests have enjoyed at prior events.

Testimonials and Happy Brides
Amy Miller the best henna artist in Birmingham.
Bisakha Pia Sen, Ph.D., native of Kolkata, India
We booked Amy for my wife's henna decorations for
a Hindu wedding, and she did a fantastic job.
Everyone loved the authenticity and level of detail,
even the aunties from the old country who have seen
dozens of similar decorations before. They did a
wonderful job with traditional Indian wedding designs
for a pretty discerning audience. Sri Narayanan,
M.D., first-generation Indian-American
When I showed my friends my mehndi, they were surprised that a non-Indian
did it. Rumita Rowchowdry, native of India
Amy/Blue Lotus Mehndi provided amazing henna
for my henna party prior to my wedding. Amy was
such a pleasure to work with AND she is a talented
henna artist. As an Indian bride, I was very
impressed and happy with her workit was
creative, intricate and beautiful. My guests were
just as happy with the henna designs she did on
them. I recommend her highly! Bera Sekhon,
You guys were such a pleasure to work with! Thanks for making my wedding
day extra special. Cessie Spearing, Caucasian/Filipino American marrying

More About Blue Lotus Mehndi
Blue Lotus Mehndi is based in Alabaster, Alabama, just south of Birmingham.
Amy Miler is the owner and principal artist.
Amy first became interested in mehndi in 1999 and pursued
it first as a hobby and then a side business before going full-
time in 2011.
I feel indebted to the cultures that developed the art of
mehndi, and I do my best to understand the traditions,
history, motifs and other essential elements of henna while
using modern materials and techniques to achieve the best
results possible, she says.
Her clients have come from around the world: Tunisia, Nepal, Bangladesh,
Pakistan and, of course, India. Among her Indian clients, Amy has served
families from Gujarat, Assam, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Punjab and Karnataka.
Amy has found that sometimes being a non-native artist has its benefits,
especially when working with intercultural weddings.
The majority of couples Ive worked with have only one partner whose ethnic
background is from a henna-using culture, she says. Being Caucasian and a
native English speaker, I can easily introduce the Western side of the family to
the beauties of mehndi. At the same time, I have the skill, knowledge and
cultural awareness to turn out traditional designs.
Amys wedding clients also have included couples with no ethnic ties at all to
henna-using cultures. Many of my clients are deeply interested in Middle
Eastern and Southeast Asian culture and art and wish to incorporate mehndi in
unique ways in their weddings, she says. Everything from Bollywood to
Bhangra are becoming more popular in the West, and mehndi along with
Amy is a frequent fixture at cultural events including the Birmingham
International Street Fair, the Alabama Asian Cultures & Food Festival, and the
Da De Los Muertos festival. This year, she has the distinction of being the
mehndi provider at Bangamela 2016, an annual gathering of the Mid-America
