We always include groom's name or small illustrations for no additional fee, but 'custom' additions that require us to copy off of an existing image, such as skylines, animal or people figurines, calligraphy text, logos, or etc. are charged +$20 per request.
Bridal henna must be scheduled 2-3 days BEFORE your wedding day.
