Arranged marriages in Pakistan often take long periods of time to finalize. The time from preparation until wedding day may be more than a year. When the wedding date approaches, all close relatives are invited for a typical Pakistani wedding that requires a considerable budget in order to accommodate them. In some cases, wedding dates are even postponed until the important relatives are able to arrive to the location of the reception from abroad. The wedding custums and celebrations also differ significantly depending on the geographical location as well as the families involved. However, a typical Pakistani wedding has at least three main customs involving the Henna ceremony (Mehndi), the vows or the Nikah which is a part of the actual wedding or Wedding ceremony, and a subsequent Waliima offered by the groom’s family.
A proposal party is a reception held at the bride’s house, where the groom’s parents and family elders formally ask the bride’s parents for her hand in marriage. In religious families, once the wedding proposal is accepted, the families read Holy Quran, and then tea and refreshments are served. Depending on individual family traditions, the bride-to-be may also be presented with an item of jewelry and a variety of gifts.
