Walima (Arabic: وليمة walīmah), or the marriage banquet, is the second of the two traditional parts of an Islamic wedding. The walima is performed after the nikah (Arabic: نكاح) or marriage ceremony. The word walima is derived from awlam, meaning to gather or assemble. It designates a feast in Arabic. Walima is used as a symbol to show domestic happiness in the household post-marriage.
Deewan Banquet was the perfect spot for this couple’s celebrations. A private bridal suite allowed our bride, Sana, to dress change during her celebration.
The food, traditional Pakistan cuisine, was absolutely delicious and served hot buffet-style.
Deewan Banquet was also large enough to accommodate their 200+ guests. They celebration was held in the Grand Ballroom that can fit up to 378. The couple split the Grand Ballroom into two rooms— one for men, and one for women.
