Anonymous asked: Hi Thanks for having this tumblr! I am a representative of the groom's family and we are wondering how many bidh bags we need to take with us. The nikkah will be held on the day of the baraat. And they have 300 guests coming. Does that mean we need to bring 300 bidh bags? And then for the valima, would we need to have an additional 200+ favor bags for our own guests?! That seems to be a lot of bags and candy that we need to buy, so wanted to see what's convention. Thanks

Hi! Thank you! 

So the tradition is for the bidh bags to be distributed from the groom’s side right after the Nikkah ceremony to all the guests, including bride’s side and groom’s side. 

As for favors go, that is completely separate and optional. A lot of people nowadays get a nice favor and give it to families instead of each person. Something cute and decorative that they can actually put in their home and remember the wedding by. This will help you save money as well. Another option is a photo booth for guests to be able to take pictures and get print outs and that is a favor in its own!

Tips for your engagement shoot: 
1.      Style of photos. Either natural or posed photos.
If natural, go for a photographer that takes photos that are more laid back and comfortable.
For Posed, go with a photographer that has a more of a romantic cliché approach.
 2.      Location.
Make sure to scout out locations before your engagement shoot. If multiple locations keep them close in distance.
 3.      Outfits.
Outfits that show off your personality work the best. Avoid logos, patterns and bulky clothing.
 4.      Make up, hair and nails.
If you can’t do them yourself it is a good idea to get them professional done before the shoot.
 5.      Timing.
Typically there is a specific window of time during the day that is ideal lighting for the photographer. So do not be late!
 6.      Hobbies
Don’t be afraid to incorporate the things you love as a couple.
 7.      Enjoy Yourself!
Let loose and enjoy yourself. Don’t take yourself too seriously! Show you’re “in love”!

Anonymous asked: Hey, so should I be having my mehndi and then the nikah or the nikah first and then the mehndi because I've been noticing that's the newer trend nowadays and I'm a little confused. Thanks so much for the help! You're a darling!

Well it all depends on how religious you guys are. Traditionally the mehndis used to be separate, where the bride and groom would have two separate mehndi functions and then see each other for the first time at the nikkah. So some families do the nikkah first so they can have a joint mehndi and the bride and groom are able to see each other and sit next to each other and having it all okay according to Islam. 

If your families arent strict about you two not seeing each other until after the Nikkah then theres no need to do the nikkah first!

Anonymous asked: I am in charge of booking the bride's makeup appointment for the valima. Should just book her appointment at MAC in Nordstrom or should I hire a makeup artist to come and do the makeup at the hotel? I've heard good things about MAC, but I am afraid the bride will be unpleased that I booked her bridal appointment at the mall. How early should I get her makeup and hair done. Should she wear her bridal outfit's shirt when she gets her makeup/hair done?

MAC artists are always a hit or a miss so make sure if you do go with them, you still get a trial from a variety of them to make sure you’re truly getting a professional! With a Professional Bridal Makeup Artist, you are guaranteed a professional, but i still suggest to get a trial with them as well. MAC artists usually only do makeup so you will have to find someone else for hair, whereas most professional mua’s do hair, makeup, and dupatta and jewelry setting as well so it saves that hassle. 

She should definitely wear her bridal outfit shirt and a robe over it when she gets her hair and makeup done so she won’t have to ruin her hair and the robe will protect her outfit while she gets her makeup done!

Bridal Beauty Do’s and Don’ts

1.)    Do not drink red wine or eat colored foods (i.e. berries)

2.)    Do not tan right before the wedding. You do not want to burn or if you spray tan come out an orange color.

3.)    Don’t get your first bikini wax before your wedding. Discomfort and Ouch!

4.)    Do not change your birth control, skin-care treatments, detergent, etc. You never know how your skin will react!

5.)    Do not get a facial, eye brows waxed or even dying your hair less than two days from the wedding.

6.)    Flat ironing your hair the day before the wedding can ruin your wedding day curls!

7.)    Stay away from sodium to prevent bloating the week of the wedding.

8.)    During the month of your wedding stay hydrated. This will keep your skin nice and clear.

9.)    Do not cry and rub your eyes. If needed use a tissue under the tear ducts and let the tears fall onto the tissue.

10.) Do wear waterproof makeup, for those wedding tears!

11.) Do not forget a beauty emergency bag: safety pins, hair spray, tampons, deodorant, double-sided tape, blotting papers, gum/mints,tissues, band aids, emery board, aspirin, clear nail polish, bobby pins, etc.

12.)  Don’t forget to touch up! Keep your makeup fresh throughout the night.
