We are in the second biggest city of Pakistan also known as the city of gardens, Lahore. The day we came into this world we saw the wedding in a completely different way. There were seasons to get married like people avoid arranging marriages in summer because it used to be very hot. Men can’t wear suits, ladies can’t wear cosmetics and numerous different issues.
People use to occupy streets, roads, gardens and sometimes banquet halls for there wedding ceremonies as per there budgets. Resources were constrained too around then. There was no restriction on fireworks, food and especially on timings. People specially visit Lahore for their relative weddings. People from Lahore were lively and energetic. Dholak and dance practices, Mayoon, Mehndi then Barat and Walima. Wedding use to be full of fun here and usually last until the morning.
And then gradually streets became crowdy, there was traffic on the roads, the city of gardens became a city only. Due to minimal space, people started arranging their wedding events in banquet halls. It was all fine in the beginning, people compromised with everything. And then what happened that in somewhere around 2015 government decided to shut down the wedding halls at 10 PM.
As indicated by a report, when everybody knew that the wedding season begins from October and proceeds till mid of March. These five months were busy to the point that you can’t discover a venue or lawn. Wedding cards are taking longer than usual because they are all book, the “video wala” is full of dates. Markets are full of ladies buying dowry and sharara, gharara and other stuff.
Gradually people get accustomed of it and weddings turned into an entire year occasion. Innovation had it’s influencing here. You began getting everything on the web. Marriage halls became banquet halls, air-conditions and heaters become compulsory. Marriages are now completely equipped from the wedding invitation, wedding coverage services, caterers, wedding planners, and everything else. With all these facilities, there is no season to marry now. You can get married in any season. So what are you waiting for?
