How much did Fatima Bhutto pay for her beautiful wedding dress?

The wedding of Fatima Bhutto, the granddaughter of former Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and an author, has become the talk of the town because it was small and simple.

The Pakistani author got married in a small wedding at her family’s home in Karachi’s 70 Clifton, her brother Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Junior said last week when he posted a photo of the bride and groom on Instagram.

But he said that the family didn’t think it was right to throw a big party for the wedding because “our countrymen and women are going through hard times.”

Later, Fatima Bhutto also said that she would not be having any more ceremonies. She said, “I’m not one for lavish weddings, but especially now, when so many people are struggling, it feels so wrong.”

On her wedding day, the bride wore a white, sleeveless peshwaz, which is similar to a gown but has an open front and is tied around the waist. It had silver “chappa (block printing) motifs and bail (vine) work” on it. She wore simple red rings and yellow and white gajras (wrist garlands) with the dress. To finish off the look, she wore a silver teeka, which is a traditional piece of head jewelry.
