A Fun + Bright Texas Haldhi Ceremony

A Fun + Bright Texas Haldhi Ceremony

We are thrilled to share the haldhi (pithi) ceremony of Shazin and Asif. Shazin opted for the Sonam Luthria x KYNAH Azmi Outfit. This gorgeous yellow set has dhoti pants, bustier, pre-stitched dupatta, and coin belt and was the perfect pick against the "50 Shades of Pink" theme. Congrats to the beautiful couple! 

What was the inspiration behind your pithi theme/aesthetic?

Asif and I knew we wanted one of our events outdoors, being in Texas during the summer was a risk but it worked out perfectly. I went for the Fifty Shades of Pink theme for this event, Asif was a great sport about it! Every piece of our decor had a touch of pink and it looked beautiful with our outfit colors. We had lawn games set out around the area so guests had the choice of staying indoors and start eating an early dinner or joining us outside. 

What made you choose the Azmi Outfit for the pithi?

Within our culture, the woman's pithi outfit is traditionally yellow so I knew I wanted something in that color. I was on the search for my pithi outfit for months, when KYNAH's new collection came out as soon as I saw it, I knew the Azmi Outfit was it. It was exactly what I was looking for, something different, something yellow and something that fit the vibe.

If you had to choose one moment from your pithi, what would it be?

One of my favorite memories was sneaking away with the photo/video team, Mir Anwar Studios, and taking pictures! The pictures/videos were amazing but we had so much fun being with one another before the actual event started.

If you could describe how the outfit you chose made you feel, what would it be and why?

Beautiful AND comfortable! I'm not one to get dolled up, you'll always find me in athletic clothing and a messy bun. Being comfortable was super important to me and the second I tried the Azmi Outfit on, I knew that wouldn't be a problem. It fit like a glove, which was also a perk. Our photo/videographer, Mir Anwar, wanted us to run through the fields for wedding footage. I was able to run in the outfit and it didn't even move out of place. I did my entrance for the pithi right after!

How did you come across KYNAH and how was your experience?

I remember the first time I saw a KYNAH outfit, my sister wore it to someone's Nikkah and I was in love (and this was a couple of years back)!! I'm always looking for that "something different" look when it comes to Pakistani/Indian clothes and I found that in KYNAH. All I can say about my experience is that I was thankful. Our wedding happened in July during the ongoing global pandemic, which meant that getting clothes from overseas was almost impossible. I had a one-on-one conversation with Aisha and she made it happen, she told me she would have outfit ready for me just in time, and she delivered on that promise.
