Maharani Shereen, on her wedding style:
"I wanted the Shaadi to be elegant but subdued...candlelight, blush tones, lots of flowers."
On what she loved most about planning her dream Pakistani wedding:
"What I loved and sometimes hated most was working on the little details. From menu cards to favors and other little touches, I enjoyed putting effort into the creative details that were later so appreciated by our guests."
On choosing her dream wedding lengha:
"I traveled to Pakistan to get my Lengha made. I spent time meeting different designers but found the perfect one pretty easily."
On her most magical wedding moment:
"Being surrounded by family and friends throughout the whole night was incredible. I never imagined I'd be able to share that moment with so many people I cared about. Hearing our siblings, best friends, and parents give speeches on our Wedding Day was touching, emotional, and a memory I'll keep forever."
On whether or not she and Raja Saad had a formal first dance:
"Nope! We just danced to every song that came on!"
Additional thoughts from the bride:
"For so many of my friends it was their first time attending a South Asian wedding and they loved it! They wore the clothes, danced to our music, and had an incredible time."
That's where we leave you today, my dears. Join us again tomorrow, and all week long, for more wedding wonders that will leave you breathless!
