Now let’s discuss my personal favourite one, the wedding outfits of Ayeza Khan. Ayeza is a prominent television actress of Pakistan who got married to a fellow actor Danish Taimoor in August 2014. It is said that instead of going for designer dresses, this skilled girl designed all her outfits on her own.
For the Nikah function, she chose a simple yet elegant look by wearing almost natural-looking makeup and a white dress. Her head was covered in a red net dupatta, which made her face visible, and the border of the dupatta was laced with Kiran, which is a traditional custom she brought back in fashion.
For the mehndi function, she went for a colorful and vibrant dress which she was able to carry pretty gracefully.
For Barat, she wore a traditional red dress, a lehenga with a long shirt. We also loved her jewelry and makeup as nothing seemed to be overdone, which often becomes the case in royal weddings.
For Walima function, she wore an ivory and pink gown, which we think is a beautiful yet unique combination.

The next royal wedding, which again has the potential to give great ideas for wedding dresses, is the Pakistani politician Sharmila’s wedding. Her wedding functions were almost two weeks long and all the dresses were designed by famous Pakistani designers.
We have chosen two of our favourite dresses from her wedding here. Firstly, the bold green mehndi dress, designed by Bunto Kazmi. Its what most people call an Anarkali style dress and suited the occasion pretty well.
But the best one was her classic red bridal dress, again by designer Bunto Kazmi. The dress was a deep blood red colored lehenga with a tail and a shirt, which was knee length. This year seems to be a year of relatively shorter lengths for bridal shirts. The shirt filled with goldwork looks spectacular but what wins here is the gold eye makeup.

And now the latest Disney wedding of the real estate tycoon Malik Riaz’s granddaughter, whose wedding exit on a helicopter created quite the hype. This bride also went for a traditional look, though instead of wearing a completely red outfit, she chose to combine gold and red and was designed by Indian designer Manish Malhotra. You could also see shades of peach and green in the dress, and overall, it created a nice traditional and yet innovative look. Though we like the colour combinations, I felt that the dress and jewelry were overdone, as it makes it hard actually to figure out what she is wearing.
