The Two Weddings Mashup

I’m probably the only person in the world who can say she had TWO weddings to the SAME guy in the same year (actually, just 6 weeks apart!).  I have soo many stories and soo many tips about my beautiful Pakistani wedding (June!) and my fantastically fun Macedonian wedding (July!).

I have learned SO much about weddings now it’s crazy.  I have soo many tips on vendors (had some bad experiences and some excellent ones) and incredible tips on bridal beauty, wedding styling (the little details…I used Style Me Pretty, Hostess with the Mostess & Green Wedding Shoes for inspiration) just overall planning!  Here are some sneak peaks of photos of me from each weddings:

My Pakistani bridal dress was inspired by a Bunto Kazmi dress I saw.  Do I wish I had more embroidery? Yes.  Even still, the thing weighed like 30 pounds and I loved the different colors.  Nick was SHOCKED when he had to carry it for me the next day! I hesitate posting pictures on here because I fear someone is going to post it on a Pakistani bridal thread and then replicate my gharara.   Here is a photo for my 2nd wedding in July wearing my white dress and cute bolero (to be modest):

I did a purple, white & gold theme for wedding #1 and wedding #2 was totally different with a springy & modern yellow & white theme.

I’ll show all the little DIY elements for each, and I have a TON of Pakistani bridal tips for brides who opt to wear white dresses but wish to have that touch of modesty, and just for Pakistani brides in their own Pakistani lenghas and ghararas.  Keep posted, I have lots to share!!
