The splendor and elegance of Pakistani weddings are no more than Indian weddings. Wedlock’s in Pakistan are an extravagant affair with various ceremonies and celebrations that include that of Dholki, Mehendi Night, Mayun and Mayun, the Nikah, Baraat, and the Walima.

After the formal meeting between the bride’s and groom’s family members, the wedding ceremony is the first wedding celebration before the wedding. The appeal of a Pakistani tradition is that the bride’s family owns the entire wedding. To make the union official, the boy’s family members offer sweets and gifts to the girl’s family. This is called Zabaan. The groom’s family members have sworn their vows to the bride’s family at this wedding. The ceremony follows the tradition of engagement, also called Mangni.

THE DHOLKI

The first wedding celebration, Dholki, marks the start of the wedding celebrations. It occurs about two weeks before the wedding. It is among the most enjoyable ceremonies, wherein women members of families who have the bride’s and the groom’s families get together to dance, sing and have fun. Dholki is the name of an instrument known as the dholak (drum). The ladies dress in fashionable clothes and dance to the beat of the most popular Pakistani songs and make the occasion lively and joyful.

THE MEHENDI

Following the Dholki ceremony, Mehendi night follows. In this celebration, the bride’s hands and feet are decorated by intricate Mehendi or designs made of Henna. The bridesmaids, sisters, and family members close to the bride have also decorated their hands by putting henna patterns on their hands. It is believed that this ritual will bring luck and love to the bride’s life in the future. The bride typically wears Pakistani ethnic Winter clothes in green or yellow colors in this ceremony. The changing fashions have made it trendy for the groom to embellish his hands using Henna.

MAYUN

It is believed that the Ubtan ritual is referred to in the Mayun. In the final week before the wedding, the bride is not permitted to leave her wedding venue. The groom and bride are not allowed to see one another. The groom and bride must spend time to pamper themselves and look their best throughout the time. To increase the bride’s wedding glow, a mixture of turmeric (Haldi) herbal oils and sandalwood is applied on her face, hands, and feet. The groom and bride decide to wear yellow attire for the ceremony of ubtan.

THE NIKAAH

The wedding ceremony, also known as Nikaah, is the primary ceremony where the groom and bride make vows and are declared married. When they tie the knot, both the groom and bride sign an agreement for marriage.
