The duration of a Pakistani wedding ceremony is about four days and involves several functions namely; Walima, Mehndi, Ubtan, Baraat, Mayun, and Dolki. Specifically, Mehndi functions in Pakistan take place two days to the major wedding ceremony. Traditionally, the groom and bride functions were held separately with guests from both sides presenting henna and Mehndi to their hosts. Since there were different ceremonies in the past, the groom’s function was referred as “Tael” (oil) to signify the oil that was applied to his hair. This tag has since been removed because today’s function is composed of one ceremony.
All the same, the Mehndi functions in Pakistan have still maintained their allure with a lot of activities being featured. Both sides wear great Pakistan clothes, with the bride usually being adorned in a green or yellow dress. The celebrations are also marked with song and dance competitions between the bride and groom sides. Until recently, such activities were considered feminine but a lot has changed and men are more involved in the Mehndi functions.
