LAHORE, Pakistan (Dec. 17) – Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, the most prominent tennis star in Pakistan, is going to get marry today (Saturday, December 17). Aisam-ul-Haq’s marriage is going to be a real traditional wedding according to customs and traditions of Pakistan.

Last night his family and friends celebrated in his “Rasm-e-Hina” also commonly known as Mehndi.

Mehndi, or the Rasm-e-Hina ceremony, typically takes place one or two days prior to the main wedding day. The event is traditionally held separately for the bride and the groom, and Hina (Mehndi) is symbolically placed on the couple's hands. The groom's friends and family bring along sweets and Hina (Mehndi) for the bride, and the bride's family does the same for the groom. On the bride's ceremony the groom normally does not participate and similarly, on the groom's event the bride stays at home. Female guests are sometimes offered mehndi at the host's discretion.

Today, Saturday/December 17, will be the main wedding day when the Nikah ceremony will be held.
