Weddings are celebrated in different ways across different cultures around the world.
At Pakistani weddings, brides wear Mughal-inspired dresses, which are very different from those worn in different parts of the world.
Most commonly, Lehengas and Shararas are worn with traditional jewelry and accessories.
These elegant and intricate dresses are trendy all over the world due to their unique embroidery and design.
Their popularity has increased in recent years, and people from non-Pakistani backgrounds also wear such dresses at weddings.
A large population of South Asians lives in the US, and hence the demand for these dresses is quite high. To meet this demand, several brands have established their businesses in America.
Many stores and boutiques sell Pakistani bridal wear in different parts of the US.
Multiple online retailers deliver these clothes in America and to countries worldwide.
Some well-known brands and stores are listed with their details in this article.
