So I'll share what I can..
The first thing to understand is that like almost all weddings, they are big productions.. but an Pakistani/Indian wedding is that times a hundred. There are a minimum of five to six events as small as a hundred people and as big as a thousand.. two thousand people. During each event there are several little rituals and traditions..
This particular wedding had eight events.. eight!
Thousands of invitations were sent, the most important fifty or sixty were hand delivered by us with a little gift.
This gift can be just about anything.. we decided to gift everyone a bottle of honey with a sachet of kalonji aka fennel flower, black cumin as well as several other names. Kalonji is an Asian spice said to have many healing properties. The Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) once said it was the remedy to all disease except death. Combining the seeds in moderation enhance the benefits.
