Understanding walima

Walima is basically like a reception, where the newlyweds meet all their relatives or friends, which is followed by a lunch or dinner. Just like other wedding occasions, walima demands a special outfit as well. Walima dresses are generally lighter than the wedding dresses. Zari work, bead work, stone work and machine embroidery are commonly used in these dresses just like the main day dresses.
