It is important to my fiance to have our wedding in Pakistan with his family and since my parents have both passed away I don't see harm in this but there are a lot of things that are scary for me including being over seas for the first time, meeting my future family for the first time, language barriers, difference in religion and culture, not having any of my family there with me, no champaign toast or alcohol, no music at the wedding, not being able to wear a traditional white wedding dress, and having NO idea of what to expect. I imagined my wedding a certain way but now it will be totally different and I am not sure how much choice I have in the elements of the wedding. Furthermore I doubt any of my family will attend so far away. The family I have here are not the closest but I always wanted them to be there. I do not want to insult my future husbands family and want to align with their traditions but I also want some say in my own wedding. Can someone who has been to or had a traditional conservative (fiances family, not him) muslim wedding in Pakistan let me know what I could expect and how much input does a bride have? All answers welcome! Thanks!
