Dallas, TX Pakistani Wedding by Blink Films & Images

Hello there, darlings! Get ready to enjoy Afsha & Fahim's wedding in today's Platinum Guide Blog.

photo #308121

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Fahim at my cousin's (his best friend) birthday party. We became really good friends since were both sarcastic and fun and before we knew it, we started dating.

I knew he was "the one" because of how thoughtful he was towards not just me but my family. My father passed away in 2017, and he was and continues to be a rock that holds my family together. He is extremely fun and can literally talk to anyone!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Fahim and I dated for 4 and a half years before he proposed on December 23, 2020.

Fahim told me that he was taking me to take Christmas pictures in our Looney Tunes sweaters to send out to our friends and family. He took me to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, which we both loved visiting because of how calm the environment is. He took me to the gazebo and proposed! My friends and family were hidden behind. They came out and surprised me! It was the best Christmas present!

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Fahim and I planned our wedding with the help of our amazing friends, family, and bridal party. We started by shopping for venues and played around with a few dates. After about a month, we decided to get married in January 2020 and finalized the date shortly after.

Next, we started looking for photo, video, and decor. We heard about Blink Films and Images from Houston and went to visit their office. We realized that we could get all our needs taken care of with them. The photo and video process was seamless. The Blink Team was there early and prepared for all of our events and very professional. When it came to decor, we didn't have a theme in mind to be honest. My lengha was maroon and fahim's outfit was pink (the accent color to my lengha), so I had no clue what I wanted! I trusted AV at Blink with the colors and design of my reception and was not disappointed with the product! I still remember walking into the venue when it was fully decorated in awe because of how beautiful everything looked! They are wonderful and exceptional at what they do!

In terms of hair and makeup, my sisters always raved about Jenny Torry and how amazing her brides look! I did a bridal trial with her, and decided shortly after that she was the one I was going with! She did an incredible job!

When it came to cake, we had tasted a delicious cake at my coworker's wedding that we absolutely LOVED. We found out that we could customize the cake and the flavors were so yummy! Cake Daddy exceeded our expectations and gave us a phenomenal product!

I went to India with my mom and sisters to shop for my wedding weekend outfits in the summer of 2019. We ended up picking all of our outfits within 2 weeks!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my nikkah, I did not want to go with the traditional light sari that everyone wears. I am just not a sari gal! I decided to go with a champagne colored long gown instead with a dupatta on my head.

When it came to my reception lengha, this one took me by complete surprise. Since I was traveling to India, I had a very open mind about my outfit, but I definitely knew i wanted a navy/dark blue outfit. When I started trying on lenghas that were blue, my family and I soon realized the "pop" wasn't there. The salesman told me to try on a red lengha to "humor him" and we all turned out loving the color! I soon realized why wedding lenghas are red! We went with a velvet maroon lengha, which I absolutely loved!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Overall as most brides know, the planning process is incredibly STRESSFUL. I think for me, it was very very important to take breaks and learn to enjoy the process! Once the big things were decided, putting together the little details was definitely my favorite part of the process. Even though sometimes details don't seem that important, it makes an astronomical difference on the day of when you see everything come together!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I feel like most of our guests absolutely LOVED our decor and how everything fit together so well! We also tried to keep things on schedule and had fun activities planned for our guests for each event we threw.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes. My sisters put together a slideshow to honor my father during the reception, which put me to tears, but it was incredible. It made me feel like he was there with me and was smiling from above.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Our family and friends came together to create a skit for our reception, which was exceptional! We also incorporated events such as a bouquet toss and a non-traditional first dance. The reception also encompassed plenty of time for dancing, food, and fun and ended with sparklers outside!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
1. BREATHE. Indian wedding planning can be daunting and trust me, you will be okay! Just take things one step at a time and try your best to breathe through it!
2. Do all the big things first and then fill in the details later. I know this seems obvious, but when you're working on planning, you can get carried away with the details!
3. Silverware is not always included in the package. Make sure to ask the venue to make sure it is!
4. Give yourself at LEAST 8-10 months to plan out the wedding weekend.
5. A week before the wedding, let everything go and relax! You've done all you can by this point, so now it's time for you to take a load off and ENJOY yourself!
6. If you can, move in all your clothes and furniture to your new home BEFORE your wedding weekend. Trust me, you'll thank us later.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I was very open throughout my process since I wasn't like other brides who had their dream wedding planned. Slowly, but surely things came together and ended up being extremely fun and memorable!
