A day when every girl wishes to look no less than a royalty, a wedding day is indeed a life changing event that comes only once in everyone’s lives. From extravagant mehndi functions to exquisite valima reception, a Pakistani wedding is a combination of beautiful events where each day is celebrated wonderfully following themes to enhance its beauty and charm. Where yellow color is associated with mayon and mehndi celebrations, red has always been the color of the big day when two people sign down on the matrimonial contract of love and respect, promising each other to stand by strong in times of joy and sadness.
Choosing the festive color for the big day
Red has always been the color of the “barat” day since decades. But over the recent years, brides can be seen opting for varying combinations either one that compliments the color red perfectly or entirely different colored dresses for their barat. No matter if you choose to wear beige or pink or maybe green on your nikah day, no color can compliment your bridal look better than the color red itself.
From rosy reds to blood red, there is a variety of tones that you can choose to wear on your wedding promising to shine out like a royalty. Be it pure red bridal lehnga or a contrasting red gharara with short shirt, having a tint of red in your dress makes it traditional yet modern at the same time.
