Shazia and her family are Pakistani and Imran and his family are from Bangladesh. Both are of the Muslim faith. They hosted the seriously stunning South Asian three-day wedding of our dreams. Day one kicked off with appetizers, dinner, and Maghrib prayers in a private room. There were also two performances by Vanderbilt University’s South Asian dance team, The BhangraDores.

Day two had the ceremony itself. After the couples’ grand entrance, the fathers of each made speeches about their childhood and how they’ve developed into wonderful adults. After the exchanging of the rings, cutting of the cake, and photos with the couple, they got to enjoy dinner with their guests. When they exited, all family and guests followed them out to their getaway car.

Day three was a big celebration. It started with Maghrib prayers and appetizers, then dinner. There were two huge buffet stations in the hallways, musical entertainment, another cake cutting, and dancing. Plus The BhangraDores came back for another epic performance. Let's gaze at the whole gorgeous three-day wedding.

  1. The woman escorting the groom — his mother, I'm guessing? — that peacock colored outfit she has on through day 2 is absolutely gorgeous. The whole wedding is beautiful, and looks so fun. Congratulations!

    • I have a dear Muslimah friend, and after I admired her clothes, she gifted me a tunic and scarf that are incredibly beautiful. I want to find a place to wear them. I'm a white Christian, but they were a gift, so I feel like it'd be okay.
