Faiza Saleem shares why brides should have fun on their wedding day

This wedding season, comedian Faiza Saleem is one of the many brides and with all the anxiety and chaos that comes while prepping for a wedding, Faiza tells us that it is okay for the bride to have fun at her wedding day.

As per the norms, the bride is expected to act and behave a certain way; but Faiza says otherwise. As the comedian’s wedding is underway she took to her Instagram and shared why brides should have fun and express their emotions freely at their own weddings.

“I had decided to have the most fun at my wedding. I asked my mom for her approval and after that, I didn’t really care ke log kya kahenge. I added conditions to my nikkahnama (based on a mutually respectful conversation with my husband to be)… I hosted and performed at my shaadi’s comedy night and had my comedian friends roast me (maybe that wasn’t the best idea). I entered dancing with Abuzer and friends at our mehndi and danced throughout with my sneakers on. As women, we are expected not to be happy at our wedding. But why not?” she wrote.

I’m marrying the love of my life..everyone who matters is happy for me or should be happy for me. Then why should I let nobodies dictate when, where and how I should express my emotions? If someone doesn’t like it, then too bad too sad. Tomorrow I will marry Abuzer iA and I pray that we continue to be happy together because you know what? Happy brides make everyone else happy too. Allhamdullilah. Please send us prayers and good vibes. #faizerforever #af2018 #abuzer #faizasaleem #weddingseason #karachi
