 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..

    Great post on Pakistan weddings. Happy Pakistan day to you. It is amazing how very similar the traditions of a Pakistani wedding is to an Indian muslim wedding. Maybe not that surprising since their origins are the same.

    Looking forward to your craft posts.

    I think the brides are just stunning! I love the use of the colours in the dresses. They are so lavish and intricate and interesting and so beautifull. What amazing traditions you have!

    You need rest Khadija! Time to put your feet up and have some tea! :)

    hi khadija, 4 straight days of being a star must be very tiring but are the most enjoyable and beautiful moments in life for the bride and groom.
    in malaysia, the muslims celebrate for a few days too and the mehndi is only on the nails and palm of the hand and the feet.
    the celebration at the bride’s will be done the following week.
    really a great post to share…

    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.


    February 21, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    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 :)
