Weddings: Pakistani

Weddings offer a chance to celebrate details fit for royalty. And there's nothing more regal than a big Pakistani wedding with its drama, sparkle, and bold colors!
The bride is wearing an off-white gown with gold and white details. Notice the contrast with the lush red roses and jewels. Stunning!

The Muslim holy book, the Quran sits in front of the bride. Verses from the Quran are read during the ceremony and the book is always present in Islamic wedding ceremonies. Also, notice the rose petals, lovely wooden box, floating candle, and various detailed fabrics which add to the entire sumptuous look.

Gorgeous wedding cake! Notice the grand cake stand and letter cake toppers, the intials of the bride and groom.

Luscious flowers, luminous stones, and velvety fabric detail the cake table.

The use of draping fabrics are a major part of the Pakistani wedding decor.

Talk about over-the-top! The use of the pineapple punch bowl was a choice for this particular wedding designer.


Drama!

Elegance!

Light!


Lovely pen for the guest book.


Sparkle!
At a different ceremony, guests wear colors from black to red, creating a feast for the eyes on this happy day!
