Pakistani weddings are so extra. Mashalima is a new way to get married now. A traditional Pakistani Wedding lasts days and weeks. It may not be our Islamic Heritage, but it definitely is our land’s. Pakistani culture is taking a step away from the traditional and people are now obsessed with a new idea called the Mashalima.
What is a Mashalima:
It is a Mehndi, Shaadi, Walima all-in-one. So if you are getting married this fall, make sure you know what it is, and how it can make your functions better than the rest.
Here’s why you need it:
1. Mashalima is Rebellious
Instead of a big, fat, desi wedding try the amazing new way. It tells people to shut their mouths up, enjoy briefly, and then go home. It tells them that the wedding is for the couple not for the world to see.
2. It saves expenses
Of course, Mashalima isn’t cheap. It costs you something like the traditional one-day, one-event wedding. But, doing it one day may mean you just need to make a booking for the marquee once, hire lights, waiters and hospitality people once among other things.
3. Personal is better
Instead of giving one day to each event, you can make it personal and precise. Eliminate the far-flung relatives or even friends of friends you don’t want and have an intimate ceremony with the best people that you actually care about.
4. Best of every world
The debate is getting old. People who wish to have it lavish and people who want to save their energy, can have it all with this new trend. Breakfast and Mehendi, Lunch and Shaadi or rukhsati and then a dinner Walima and Qawali event.
5. Mashalima save tim
Do it all in one day, have your guests dedicate one entire day to you. No wasting time of your own, or the guests, ain’t nobody got time for that!
