 Walima function is now from groom’s family, so the bride’s family & friend visit on new couple’s invitation & enjoy their party!
There is another thing which is much involved in weddings! Lots of dowry items..which is filled with luxurious & lavish things, bride’s parents gift her so many things according to their social status or income..some extraordinary rich people gift their daughter full furnished house, latest cars, so many jewelry items or a heavy amount in cash..well these things are not admirable according to Islamic teachings! Islam teaches us to live a simple but graceful life..

    This is a great post my sweet friend. I simply love desi weddings–the grand ceremony, stunning costumes and jewelry, mehendi nite, fun…and what not! I too have a wedding in the family right after Eid and I’m soooo looking forward to it. These days I’m just thinking of what dress I’ll be wearing for the 3-day function… especially what colors to chose, oh my! :))

    Thanks for so much information and explanation about Pakistani Muslim weddings. I am familiar with movies from India in most of the languages, not just Hindi and the weddings are similar. I have a question though. Why the big nose ring? I don’t mean to offend, please forgive my ignorance.

    Thanks All for enjoying my post about Pakistani wedding & trends..Its always a fun to attend a wedding party!
    Thanks for writing your words,a nose-pin is not a must have item but brides like to wear this,although its not compulsory to have a big nose pin,its an old tradition of wearing lots of jewelry items at wedding,its only in fashion for brides,not for why not a bride wear a fashionable stuff..
    no problem dear,you can ask more :)
