I think this is a great idea â€” I just got married myself and am fascinated by what other people wear to their weddings.
I'm Iman, class of 2003. Although we both live in Toronto, my parents were keen on having the wedding at home in Pakistan so as to grant my nani's perennial wish of seeing a grandchild get married. My gorgeous husband Noorez and I tied the knot on March 7, 2013, in a beautiful 4-day wedding in Karachi. I slept for about a week afterwards.
At the "qawwali" event, where traditional folk singer Fareed Ayaz (featured in the film The Reluctant Fundamentalist) came to our house for a private concert, I wore a turqoise sleeveless kameez by Pakistani designer Shamsha Hashwani.
At the actual 'wedding' function, I wore a hand-worked gold lame sari by Pakistani couture bridal designer Bunto Kazmi. Noorez wore a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. My jewellery is traditional Indian hand-crafted 'kundan', made of refined gold, whch is a style popular with Rajasthani royalty. A couple of pics attached. I attached some of the decor of both nights too just in case. The purple-ish one is of our garden, covered in carpet, on the qawwali night.
Can't wait to see the costume collection.
