Online petition calls for ‘normalizing’ simple dress for bride and groom in Pakistan

An online petition has emerged on the social media calling for normalizing simple dress for bride and groom in Pakistan.

The petition with picture of a bride and groom is making rounds, and its caption read: “A petition to start a trend where bride & groom only wears plain kurta shalwar on wedding.”

It’s become a common trend in Pakistan weddings that bride and groom wear an expensive embroided-suite on their big day and that ultimately pressurizes low-income families to meet the societal trend, especially in cases of bride’s families who face dejection in case they do not conform to the trend.

Here’s the tweet:

The tweet has drawn over 1200 retweets and more than eleven thousand likes.
