Saleha Pirzada and Sajid Khan’s wedding in Northern California (Bay Area).
Sajid and I got married in August 2007. I had a great time planning all of our events. Our families decided to have a joint reception and that worked out great! My advice for brides is to not worry about the little details, just have fun! If you are hooked on stressing, then you will forget to make beautiful memories with your family and friends. For brides, please remember to eat the day of your wedding!
My mom, sisters and I all got ready in our hotel room instead of at home in the chaos and that really gave us piece of mind. Remember that you cannot please everyone so just do what is best for you! For couples, make sure you complete pre-martial counseling before your nikkah. This will help ensure that you are prepared for marriage, rather than focusing just on a wedding.
