An engagement ceremony is the first step in any wedding. Engagement holds great importance as this is the day when the bride and groom exchange rings and are tied in a relationship where the journey of the wedding begins. The engagement dresses are supposed to be subtle with minimal detailing that looks trendy and gives a natural glow to your entire look. If we talk about engagement dresses at Pakistani weddings, they are comparatively light embroidered with intricate detailing and embellishments. Engagement brides usually prefer light color tones such as peach, sky blue, and baby pink that will instantly make you look bright and refreshing.

Let’s talk about the most fun and exciting event from the wedding series. Undoubtedly it has to be the mehndi night where the families of the bride and groom prepare dance performances and enjoy themselves to the fullest making the event more memorable. This is the most loved event of the entire family. Mehndi night is all about traditions and customs that reflect your rituals. Moreover, mehndi night is all about bright colors with flower detailing and extravagant decorations. There is a lot that goes in while organizing a mehndi night.
Coming towards the mehndi dresses for brides, they mostly opt for bright tones of yellow, green, orange, pink, and much more. Lehenga choli is a staple for mehndi brides. You look super gorgeous when you twirl around in your lehenga choli.
A solid-colored lehenga choli can never go wrong and would always make you shine brighter. Mehndi brides pair their lehenga choli with flower jewelry along with light makeup that is easy to carry during dance performances. Everyone enjoy this event to the fullest.
Nikkah is one of the most important events of every Muslim wedding. Nikkah is the day when the bride and groom are officially tied in a knot of husband and wife for the entire upcoming life. Previously, nikkah used to take place along with baraat day but recently we have seen people arrange a separate event for nikkah day. The nikkah day is usually very simple and minimal. From clothes to decorations to arrangements everything on nikkah day is very delicate and intricate.
The outfit for nikkah is usually around soft and pastel colors of tea-pink, white, gold, lilac, and light green. We can’t deny the fact that there is something about minimal outfits that make you look so dreamy on your nikkah day. The nikkah brides mostly opt for a gharara with a short-length shirt that gives in such traditional and regal vibes to your entire bridal look. Style it with a choker set along with some classical jhoomar with natural makeup to reflect the perfect sophisticated look.
A lot of brides love to keep this nikkah look very traditional and old school. The nikkah outfits feature antique work with a touch of rust and gold for a perfect day look.
After the nikkah day, comes the baraat ceremony. It is the main event of the grand wedding celebration. This event is arranged by the bride’s family and they host the groom’s family. It is one of the most emotional days in a girl’s life when she has to leave her entire family and move towards a new home, a new place. Throughout our life, we have seen a barat bride in a deep red outfit, and trust me to the day it has no comparison.
Nothing can ever come close to a red bridal dress. The bridal dress is heavily embroidered making you look like a vision. Ever since the date of the wedding is confirmed, the girl starts to look for their dreamy bridal outfit. The bridal outfit is mainly about gold zari and dabka work with some modern touches to it to make it look regal and classy.
How gorgeous does Hania Amir look in this red outfit? Barat day is all about traditional outfits and rituals that reflect your customs. A bride can carry a red lehenga choli with a sleek bun and bold makeup look to give the perfect desi yet modern touch to your bridal look.
After enjoying all the events there comes the last event of the wedding series which is the Walima night. This walima reception is organized by the groom’s family welcoming the bride’s family. Walima is mainly an extravagant dinner for all the friends and family members. Walima day is a bit relaxed as there is no specific tradition that needs to be followed instead it is where the bride meets the guest and they take nice pictures while enjoying dinner. Recently, we have seen walima ceremonies being held in daylight which enhances the beauty of the event and the entire decorations. Day events always look super elegant and chic. Walima brides usually choose for a long flared maxi with a tail that makes them look classy yet trendy. Shades of lavender, beige, pink, and blue are best friends for a walima outfit. The entire outfit of walima brides is embellishments with subtle flower embroideries featuring a blend of sequins. pearls and zari. Tie up your hair in a messy bun or curl them for a perfect statement look.
