Overtime, desi culture has distorted the image of a Pakistani bride. There is always this expectation that the Bride has the be the ‘disco ball’ at a desi wedding – adorned with heavy jewelry, a long glittery ensemble and a huge mop of hair-sprayed hair to go with it. Let’s be honest, the idea of the overburdened desi bride, fretting over planning the perfect desi wedding, is not most comforting.
But News Flash. You don’t have to be what society wants you to be. Don’t fret over what others are going to think about what you wear on your Wedding day. It’s YOUR big day, and it’s all about you.

Don’t wanna wear you hair in a pulled back up-do? You don’t have to do that either!
