    Services

  • 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.

    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,

    first-generation Indian-American

    You guys were such a pleasure to work with! Thanks for making my wedding

    day extra special. Cessie Spearing, Caucasian/Filipino American marrying

    into an Indian family

  • 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

    them.

    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

    Bengali Association.
