Us Pakistani’s are mainly fond of two things… getting male & female individuals hitched and attending their never-ending Shaadi events. We’re not complaining, we enjoy it too! It’s a good way to socialize and reconnect with family and friends you haven’t seen in a while.
Plus, it gives you a chance to glam up and take those awesome Facebook profile picture worthy shots. Oh, and let’s not forget the main reason we attend these Shaadi events… the food! (Yes, forget the couple that is getting married, it’s all about the BBQ)
