Happy New Year Everyone! For all you 2014 brides, your year is here!!! Exciting times ahead, inshallah (god willing)! 🙂
Last week I was at a wedding, and the fun thing about attending weddings after yours is that you get to wear all your clothes from your jahez (clothes given to you from your family for your wedding) and your wari (clothes from the boys family).
I had always, always loved this sari by Karma from the moment I first came across it years ago:
When I was at their studio ordering my wedding dress, I saw it there, I think it was about $800, if I recall correctly, (but dont quote me).
So, I decided to give the picture (I had printed pics of all the outfits I liked and took them with me to Pakistan) to a shop called Emaans in Liberty to have them make it. The uncle their was very nice and was boasting at how they were experts at making designer copies lol, I do recall they had a spot on HSY outfit on display. So, I gave them the picture and picked out the green and red colours that I wanted which were a bit more muted than in the picture. When I got the sari, I was quite happy with their work, the only thing that wasn’t right was that the sari blouse was way too big so I had to get it adjusted here. Anyway here’s what the sari ended up like, that I just wore to the wedding!:
I got the set made from Afzal Jewelers in Liberty as well, which was a fun afternoon of looking through hundreds of sets while being fed lots of snacks and chai:
Wishing you all a new year filled with health and happiness, inshallah, and to all the 2014 brides, happy planning!
