Many of us focus on the big items of a wedding – decor, venue, makeup, etc. I find that sometimes it’s the small details that add so much character to the event. Ghoongats, or veils, hold a special place for me at weddings. Ghoongats add elegance and a little bit of tradition that I love so much.
Traditionally, Pakistani brides wore multiple necklaces on their wedding day. One from the bride’s parents, another from her in-laws and a few thrown in for fun. Fashion trends have led bride’s to wear chokers as well as simple necklaces.
One trend that I am loving is the re-introduction of long necklaces. I am an avid lover of saath lara haar’s so the movement towards long necklaces is pure loveliness for me.
Day 2 and 3 of PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week saw an even diverse set of designers than Day 1. My favourites of the 2 days are below – Fahad Hussayn, Nickie Nina, Saira Shakira and Nida Azwer. The top collection in my books has to be Nida Azwer’s. Her collection was beautiful – from the colours to the cuts to the style.

I have been wanting to share these images with you guys since the beginning of time – so dramatic, aren’t I? I know there are lots of pictures from this wedding floating around the internet but the images are too lovely not to share.
The bride and groom, Ayeza and Danish, are well-known Pakistani actors (thanks to my mom and mother-in-law, I can recognize alot of Pakistani TV personnel). What I absolutely loved about their wedding was the bride. Her hair, makeup, jewellery and clothing was on point on all the events. Beautiful, classy and so gorgeous; you are going to fall in love!
Wait until you get to her valima look – it is my favourite look of all the events.

Tell me what you think below!
It’s the time of year when fashion shows are at an all time high around the world and specifically, it is fashion season in Pakistan. This year’s PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week kicked off with designers such as HSY, Sania Maskatiya, Asifa & Nabeel and Karma Red.
This year, I am loving the peaches and the mint greens. I also (still!) can’t get enough of the flowy gowns – I am totally drooling over the dresses by Asifa & Nabeel. Alot of designers are also incorporating flowers into their outfits and while I do love them, I find that too many designers are using them all at once.
The one thing I can’t seem to wrap my head around is all the cleavage that popped up in this week. I think this may have been the first time I have come across so much of it on a Pakistani runway show.
Overall, day 1 was a feast for the eyes. I’m in fashion heaven!

All of you ladies that are getting married in the summer, I know you are frantically trying to finalize your wedding dress(es). Now is the time to search and narrow down your choices. This post has some gorgeous dresses for you to draw inspiration from.
For those of you who aren’t planning a wedding, a little eye candy to get us through the week doesn’t hurt. Right?
The beautiful dresses below are from the Reflections collections of Umsha by Uzma Baber. I love the modern touch to the traditional dresses.

Long before I knew any other designers, I was a fan of Maria B.When I recently came across the below images of a photoshoot in Lahore, I was reminded of my interest in Maria B’s collections. The pieces from Maria B’s 2014 collection are colourful and dramatic – a perfect blend for the modern bride and groom.
