Dear Sister in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

It is permissible for women to decorate their hands, palms and feet with Mehendi. (Alamgiri Babuz-Zeenah Vol: 5 Page: 359. As far as the matter of bride is concerned, she can also use Mehnedi before her wedding day when she does not use it as a tradition nor she considers it necessary. Otherwise it will be forbidden.

And Allah knows the best,
