There has been a lack of pakistani wedding planners in the states. I have decided to fill that void. I am a wedding planner based out of New Jersey, and do weddings nationwide. Stay up to date with my advice, ideas, and thoughts for inspiration for your own wedding!

khanbaby92 asked: What wedding halls do you suggest for an nikkah for 100 guests or less? I live in Queens.

Elite Palace or Astoria World Manor are both really pretty banquets! 

road-to-the-stars asked: you know for the diy mehndi thalis how could you make the containers in which to put the mehndi in. In the image you show the containers are gold and slightly spouted. thanks!!

Use clay molding and sculpt it and then spray gold metallic paint on it! 

Super easy DIY idea: Mehndi Thalis 
Get the thinnest plywood at your local home depot and cut it into paisley shapes and have fun decorating them in any color/sequins/rhinestones you want!

khanbaby92 asked: Where can I find items for mehendi and rasams? i.e. Like mehendi trays and doodh pilai

Where do you live? if you live near an indian desi market, any of the stores that sell desi things usually have mehndi trays and stuff also. Like the subzi mandi on Oaktree Road in New Jersey even had them! 

If you don’t have a desi store nearby, a great idea that I do is make my own mehndi trays out of tempered hardwood from home depot [the thinnest board you can find] and decorate it with wrapping paper and sequins and ribbons. Cut them in Paisley shapes or other fun shapes that are mehndi related. 

As for the dhood pilai, you can get a regular small jug with a plate and use mod podge and glitter and make it gold and then same thing, add sequins/beads/rhinestones and make it look pretty! 

Both are super easy to do!

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!
