Here Is Why An Afternoon Baraat Is Probably The Funniest Type Of Wedding In Pakistan!

There are 12 months in each calendar year: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and Shaadi. If the government of Pakistan decides to change the month of December to shaadi, most of us would agree to it wholeheartedly.

We have all heard about and have even been to afternoon walimas and most of us are fine with the idea of having them done during this time of the day because the pressure of all shaadi events drains many. However, these are very occasions when the main event of the wedding, being baraat, is conducted during the morning/afternoon time. To many (including myself) the idea sounds extremely weird…

Suhaag raat is obviously very important for married couples (like DUH). But the entire idea of having a “suhaag din” sounds a little off. I mean, your entire family will be wide awake as well…

I am sure I am not the only one who noticed this but the dulha dulhan are extremely energetic and in full swing. This is probably because that the couple doesn’t have to run any errands related to the big day for an entire day and then get ready for the main event of the wedding.

We are so engrossed and used to the idea of having baraat during night time that most of us find the entire idea of seeing a bride wedded to her new home during daylight. There’s some feeling of sadness associated with nighttime and we find weird to see a bride hugging her family members and crying her way out of the hall in full sunshine…

The Attendees Are Less Hungry (Believe Me)

If you are a morning person, you would definitely wake up at a decent hour, have breakfast and start getting ready. By the time you reach the venue, you won’t feel hungry because of your breakfast and would definitely be not in the mood of eating something as heavy as chicken qorma and mutton karahi. And what’s the fun of weddings if you don’t even eat shaadi ka khana?

No amount of flash and stand lights can bring the effect natural light has especially during wedding shoots. Usually, couples have to go through the hassle of getting ready, going to a particular place for a shoot and then going back home and wait for the nighttime baraat. If you go for an afternoon wedding, you do not have to go through this hassle.

With daylight playing its own role, women can apply less, light makeup as this is what the makeup science suggests as well. Aunties can chill with all those MAC and Naked makeup shades.

With the wedding season in full swing, here’s to wishing everyone all the best of luck for the beginning of the new chapter!
