We’re just around the 1 month mark to the wedding InshAllah and wedding festivities are in full swing.
Along time ago, Nouman and I decided that we will stop seeing each other 1 month before the wedding. I’m sure you are all thinking one of the following: Are you crazy?! Have you completely lost it?! Or, Omg, you are so backward and traditional.
It’s okay, you can admit it.
Let me assure you, I am not crazy (not completely anyway) nor are we not seeing each other because we believe it brings bad luck or anything superstitious like that (seriously, do people still believe that?).
The reason we’ve decided to stop seeing each other 1 month before the wedding is simply because we think it’ll add excitement and anticipation to our wedding. I know that both of us will be happy to see each other because it’s our special
day days, but not having seen each other for one month will be even more exciting.
So yes, starting this week, we won’t be seeing each other! The hardest part? We are attending one of our close friends wedding next weekend! Thankfully, it’s a segregated event so pardah (not seeing each other) shouldn’t be too hard.
I should probably keep a Niqab just incase everyone decides to mingle together at the end of the night….
… Just kidding 🙂
