    Your blog is so cute! I love it, I was looking forward to all the desi ‘to be bride’ stuff except I recently got ‘dis-engaged’ if that word exists lol.
    Back to the point, I think its a great idea that you’re planning stuff beforehand and centralizing your thoughts, if you ever need any desi help or trend tips on the wedding way down here from Pakistan let me know :)
    Good luck

    Hey! Out of curiosity, are you bihari? Biharis are known for the chaapa dupattas, so I was just interested in knowing if you’re from there. FYI, I’m bihari, so I was just asking :)

    Love your blog btw! Its nice to see such awesome posts from someone with the same name as me ;)

      Wsalam Ayesha,
      Thank you – glad you love it! Congrats on your wedding. I use GoDaddy.com as my webhost and have installed a WordPress theme on it. I find it really to use. Hope this helps :)

    Hey shaza, omg I just want to say that your blog is amazing! I’m currently planning my wedding and trying to get my mehndi stuff sorted, I just wanted to ask how you made the mehndi plates in the shape of a petal? I’m using the same concept with small and large petels, the small ones seem okay to make but I’m not to sure what to use to make the large ones? Your help would be very much appreciated.

      Hi Saira,
      Thank you! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding :) I’ll be writing a post on how we made it but in the meantime: how big are the larger ones? We used thick carboard boxes for mine – but since they didn’t have any weight on them on top, they could be light. Try putting cardboard on thick foam sheets if you need something more sturdy. I have seen people use wood too – but that would require special equipment for carving!

    Hi Shaza,

    You’ve got a great blog going here. I love how you’ve posted your wedding stories and other wedding related stuff in detail. It really helps when you’re planning a wedding.

    Would you be able to direct me to stores in the GTA that sell Pakistani sherwanis for grooms? I’d appreciate the help. Keep up the good work on the blog. :)

      Hi Nyla,

      Thank you so much :) Glad it’s helped!
      For Sherwani’s, check out: Kohinoor Haute Couture (Albion), Oriental Costumes and I believe Naz Fashion Bug has them aswell. I searched for Sherwani’s 2 summers ago and I really liked the ones at Kohinoor!

    Hi Shaza,
    Just came across your blog! this is such a relief lol I was wondering, do you know of any cheap party venues in the GTA..for about 70 people for a dholki..ideally im looking for a place that just charges a rental fee of a few hundred for like 4-5 hours

    Thanks!

      Hi Sana,
      Your best bet would be a party room at a condo – some buildings can accommodate 75 – 100 people. Other than that, the new location of Havelly has rooms that you can rent. Smaller party rooms such as Chandni Garden (upto 100 people I believe) and Sahara can also work for you. The last resort would be community centres – those can also accommodate your guestlist.

      Hope this helps!

    Salam sister, first of all just wanted to say i love, love, LOVE your blog! I think I’ve read it all in 2 days lol. I was wondering if you have any advise on organising our thoughts/ ideas for planning, lie where spreadsheet, notebooks? Also how lol. May Allah (swt) put lots and lots of barakah in your marriage, Ameeen!

      Wsalam Tayyibah,
      Thank you so much! :) Ameen. I did have a spreadsheet. I’d recommend organizing it by breaking down each event and putting down the budget and actual cost of each item (i.e. budget for each venue vs what you are actually spending). I used to compare the cost of my top 3 and then determine what I spent. Helped me stay on track :)

    Hi Shaza,
    I absolutely love your photographs!Which camera do you use to click them? My sister’s wedding is coming up and I’m searching for a camera of good quality which is easy to use, nothing too complicated or heavy.
    I’ll already be busy running around, lol

    Thanks!

      Thanks Sabika! Only the pictures that don’t give credit to a photographer are my own – the rest are from different photographers. I personally use a Canon T3i and love it :)

      Congrats on your sister’s wedding – hope everything goes well!

      Hi Nabs,
      I bought these from the same place as my wedding invitations – I don’t remember the cost but it was not alot. I believe 3000 Rupees. The name of the place is Print Masters.
