The barat or grooms procession indicates the arrival of the groom's family and friends to the bride's house. The barat is often accompanied by the rhythms of a dhol (drum) as it arrives and is greeted with flowers and rose petals by the bride's family. The bride traditionally wears a red,pink or purple gharara, lehenga or shalwar kameez which is heavily emroidered.However, other bright colors may also be worn. The dress is always accompanied with heavy gold jewelery. The groom may wear a traditional dress such as sherwani with a sehra or turban .
A dinner is served which consists of one rice dish, one salan(viand) and one sweet dish as any more than this amount is banned in Pakistan nowadays.

    1. I hope you will do this , it takes not more then 2 minutes or 5 minutes if you have very slow internet connection. I think it is a nice idea to have alternative social site for the muslim people.
    This is an excellent effort by Muslims. I will request to all of my friends to join this social site, which is purely our own.
