Unique ideas To Coordinate Your Men At Your Reception

 

 

Sup Men, your best friend is getting married isn’t he? he’s leaving the gang, it’s a sad day but it’s also a happy one. We’re sure you’re all really excited for him. And if you’re a man from the bride’s side well, I’m sure you’re all excited for her too. Regardless, the girls always get more attention than the guys. Let’s face it, guys usually go with the wind, but that doesn’t mean a little creativity hurts, right, after all, you want them to know whose side you’re from. And future bride and groom take note, here’s how you can bedazzle your bridesmaids and groomsmen for your wedding.

 

Bow Ties 

 

Yup it’s that simple, matching bow ties. Now you can get super funky with this, you don’t have to opt for a solid colour option, play around, polka dots, patterns, so many options, you can even get custom ones made. Regardless of what you decide matching bowties are a good way to go.

 

Suspenders

 

Same as the bowties, suspenders are another way you can coordinate your men. Now most of the times you might not see the suspenders if they’re wearing a suit, but maybe you don’t have to have them come in suits, again you can get funky, why do all Mehndis have Shalwaar kameezes, why can’t they wear a shirt, pants and some funky suspenders. And even if it’s a formal event they will eventually take off their jackets when eating food right?

 

Identical themed Cuff-links

 

Yes, yes a lot of identical themed stuff going on here, but men have limited options when compared to women. Themed Cufflinks, that’s as straight as we can get with you, we remember a co worker was a huge Batman fan, you know what his boys did? Batman cufflinks. Yup, its nerdy, geeky, but boy did they pull it off, and it actually look really good.so give it a thought

 

Same sock 

 

So we all know how crazy socks are these days, right? Well same bow ties, same suspenders, same cufflinks, why not same socks. I mean hey, might as well right. If you’re matching everything, might as well go with the socks too right.

Honeymoon Tips to make Your Trip Memorable

 

While you’re still basking in post-wedding bliss, here’s how you can make your honeymoon trip extra romantic and totally unforgettable. 

The most important trip of a couple’s marriage is their honeymoon, because this is when they get to know each other, share secrets, and make incredible memories. 

 

PRIVACY!!!!!!!!! 

 

The first and the most important thing about making a memorable honeymoon are to make sure both of you are the only people in this trip.  Avoid interruptions from the outside world whether its work, the family is missing you guys or the friends need to gossip. Friends and family can wait.

 

When to Start Planning

 

Next step, as soon as you know your wedding date, start planning the honeymoon! Just keep in mind that one or both of you may want to change your surname, so you will have to make a decision about surnames for bookings requiring both of your names. Whether you decide to go on your honeymoon right after your ceremony or a few months later, you need to talk about a destination, make travel arrangements and figure out what activities you both enjoy.

 

Choose the Destination Together 

 

Discuss what kind of holiday you would like to go for; Romantic or adventurous, peaceful or exciting, road-trip or luxury cruise, culture or nature. These really help narrow down the destinations you can plan. Once decided on the theme you would like to go with, list down 5 destinations which you like and ask your spouse to do the same that’ll give you some direction. One the list is narrowed down, read up about the destinations and narrow it down further to the two most fitting ones and then decide. 

 

Leave Room for Surprises

 

Another tip to plan a honeymoon is to schedule surprises for your new spouse throughout the trip. Whether it’s SkyDiving, a special dinner near the sea or even a couple’s massage, consider packing little personal touches like chocolates and candles, then setting up a playlist filled with soft music for a night in as a surprise. Take some time to see what your hotel, resort or the surrounding area offers to add a little excitement to your honeymoon.

 

Do something adventurous

 

Besides, doing something out of your comfort zone also gives you a special memory to look back upon. Or if that’s too much for either of you, plan an activity that’s more toned down but still new to the both of you.

 

Lastly, take as many pictures together as you can, take a Polaroid camera if need be. And make memories.

Planning a Teeny, Tiny Wedding.

 

How to Get Married When You’re Young and Broke? Well, you can always have a small wedding.

 

Who doesn’t want a wedding that’s meaningful, impactful, and full of memories — memories that make you absolutely giddy for joy when you think about them, right? You want the same, don’t you? We thought so! 

 

Apart from the obvious benefit of saving a ton of cash on a one-night affair, here are some other reasons to consider tying the knot the tiny way. Not that we are against big weddings or big weddings cannot connect a bride and groom with their guests, it just gets exceedingly harder the bigger your guest list is, the louder the music is, and the later the evening is. There are so many perks to having a small wedding.

 

Not everyone might be thrilled you’re having an intimate wedding. Feelings might be hurt when you limit the guest list. The easiest way to create an atmosphere where you (as the bride and groom) feel connected to your guests is to limit the number of people you want to celebrate with, it also allows you and your guests to have more intimate social interactions. One of the best ways to create a beautiful and curated experience where you’re able to reflect and take time to spend with your partner is to simply cut out the extra “stuff” including those extra guests. Less People, Less Formalities.

 

Hold the ceremony at home, or outdoors. Renting a building or function hall for your ceremony and reception can be very expensive. Not having to fit hundreds of guests under one roof means that you are free to get creative with your venue. Instead, consider using your own home (or the home of a parent) or maybe your partners roof, or the garden you grew up running in for your ceremony. This will make your day even more sentimental and meaningful.

 

Every wedding, no matter the size, will need food, staff, rentals, some décor, and entertainment, so keep those basics in mind as you’re making plans. So much thought goes into the details of a wedding, whether large or small. Instead of spending boatloads of money on flowers that will die shortly after the reception, keep it simple but elegant. As you’re determining the details, decide what is important to you and your partner and skip the things that don’t matter. Know your crowd and replace it with an activity everyone will enjoy. You can easily mix some of the add-ons that couples try to squeeze into their budgets. You might even skip the formal invitations. Call each of your guests personally to invite them to your wedding, or send handwritten letters.

 

If you’re hiring people to provide services for your reception (musicians, florists, caterers, photographers, etc.), offer to advertise for them in exchange for helping you out. Put a small card by each person’s place setting that lists the businesses responsible for each service at the wedding, along with their contact information. People ask so many questions, where’s the food from, I love the decoration who helped you? Who’s taking the pictures? You won’t have to answer any of that. 

 

Now comes the food, why spend SO much money on 10 different dishes? Do the catering yourself, or ask your family, (Khallas, mamis or whoever you’re close to) to help. They will almost always go the extra mile to make your wedding special and are generally more understanding of your particular budget needs. 

 

The dress… Well, most people I know have spent so much money on their wedding dresses that they can hold 10 small separate events with money they spent on the dress they just wore ONCE. No hate, but I wouldn’t do that. If you need help picking a shaadi jora, let us help you. … Psst, you should totally invade your mother’s closet, why not customise your mom’s wedding dress a little bit and wear it? If not, you can always use your imagination and design sense when it comes to wearing clothes. You know what you like, you know what you want. So why not design it yourself? Trust me that’ll save you tons of money. 

 

Planning a smaller, more intimate wedding allows you to say no to the excess. Less paper waste, less food waste from a large buffet where everyone piles their plates high, less unnecessary drama. After all, marriage is about celebrating the love between you and your significant other with the people you truly care about. A small wedding can still be filled to the brim with joy thanks to less fluff, less fuss.

Signs Your Relationship Is Strong Enough to Get Engaged

 

So you’re in love and you believe you found “the one.” If only you could read your partner’s mind!

 

Along your journey of love, you have finally come across your soul mate, and the universe has conspired to bring the two of you together. The length of the relationship doesn’t matter because it’s about the bond between the couple. Now the universe is giving you signs that maybe it’s time to seal the deal, to be the peanut butter to her jelly, the cheese to her pizza, to be the key for her lock. 

 

It doesn’t feel scary 

 

For many people, the idea of marriage is scary, the very idea of being bound to a single person for the rest of your life is a thought not many can stomach. For some it’s taking the responsibility of another person, and for others it’s whether you think someone else can accept you for who you are. However as with many fears it is just that, a state of the mind. However, once you find your person, that fear goes away. So when that happens and trust us that will, well that’s the universe telling you to go for it. So if you like it, then you should put a ring on it……uh uh oh oh uh uh oh.

 

You’re at Your Most Comfortable with Them

 

This is a sure fire sign, if you and your partner are comfortable around each other, and i mean comfortable to a point where you can say or do anything around them and not feel weird or awkward then it’s time to get engaged. After all you’re going to be spending your life with this person, do you really want to be with someone who will make you self conscious if they are around you? 

 

Your Communication Is In Great Shape

 

As they say communication is key. It’s one of the most integral parts to a relationship. A lot of married couples have trouble communicating with each other, but if you and your partner are able to talk about anything and everything and are able to communicate with each other freely about your problems then trust us, you should cherish that person because that is a sign that tells you that not only will there be lesser misunderstandings between the two of you, it will also most likely play a huge role in keeping the two of you together and happy.

 

You’ve Hit Rough Spots—And Gotten Through Them

 

All couples hit rough spots, however not everyone gets out of them. Not everyone has the stamina and patience to endure the hardship. Many simply call it quits. It’s just human nature, humans tend to avoid things and situations that are unpleasant for them. However, it is exactly those difficult situations that will dictate how your partner will react if you hit a rough spot. This could be anything from jealousy, misunderstandings, financial issues, long distance. However, if you get through it and your bond becomes stronger through the process, then you know that in the future should you hit a rough spot again you know you’ll make it through. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies, its compromise, it helps move us along. Yes, we quoted maroon 5.you got a problem?

 

People Are Asking

 

People are very perceptive, yes sometimes they are wrong in coupling two people when they might just be really good friends, however if people know two people are together and they keep asking when you two will tie the knot, they do that because they see the chemistry. Some are just really nosy, and some might even say it as a taunt…. BUT!!! If people are asking it’s because they really think that you should end up together.

The Mistakes Brides Always Make

 

Stay clear of these mistakes brides make on the big day!

 

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about wedding planning but were too afraid to ask. We’re here to help you every step of the way as you get organised to plan the best day ever.

 

The path to getting married is littered with missteps. There are a few wedding mistakes brides always make. Don’t let them happen to you. 

We spoke with several brides and asked them if they had to do it over, what would they have done differently? Here’s what most of the had to say 

 

– “I would have budgeted better.”

– “I would have focused more on how to record the day.”

– “I would have spent more time enjoying the reception.”

– “I wouldn’t have stressed so much.”

 

But this isn’t just it, where should you begin so your wedding planning starts on solid footing? “Once your budget is established, you can make smart decisions on hiring the right team of vendors who work best with your personalities and will execute your vision for the day. If everything is going as planned, you obviously won’t be stressed and have more time enjoying the reception. 

 

Still, even the most vigilant bride can be steered off course, and you don’t want to make the same mistakes other brides have. 

 

THE VERY FIRST MISTAKE BRIDES MAKE APART FROM ALL THAT THAT’S MENTIONED ABOVE IS THAT; 

 

You Don’t Put Yourself First

 

Your wedding day is about committing your life to that one person for the rest of your life. This is pretty serious. As much as you or anyone else LOVE details, flowers, and a gorgeous designer dress, your wedding day needs to be about you two and not about getting it published. All the details come in second place.

 

You Don’t Say Hello to Everyone

 

These days, most couples forgo the formal post-ceremony receiving line. If you have a big family obviously not saying hello will upset your phopos, chachis, mamis and others. Make an effort to find something sincere and personal to say to each guest (only then they’ll have something nice to say about your manners). 

 

Arrange Someone To Take Care Of The Food

 

Now when we talk about taking care of the food at a desi wedding, we mean… well, someone who makes sure the waiters serve the food on time, they don’t waste the food and once everyone’s done eating they pack the food properly. This takes hours to sort out. 

 

You Over Decorate

 

No wedding feels truly complete without wedding decorations. However simple they may be.

First things first, what should you decorate? You don’t really have to decorate every single nook and cranny to make a huge impact, as long as you focus on these basic wedding decoration elements.

 

Provide Extra Seats at the Ceremony

 

Whoever belongs to a desi family knows, you’re always invited everywhere. So just know, you will always need roughly 20 more chairs than there are people when you’re having a desi wedding. 

 

Over-Scheduling Your Photographer

 

Timing is significant on your wedding day and making sure that you have allocated enough time for your wedding photographer can make a huge difference to the quality and beauty of your wedding pictures; impressive candid shots need time and cannot be rushed. Of course, the logistics of each wedding can vary a lot. You should take into account that hair and makeup preparations can sometimes run over schedule. Make sure that your wedding photographer and hairstylist/make-up artist are aware of your wedding day timeline; your wedding preparations only happen once and you should ensure that there will be enough time for everything, especially photography.

 

Leave Enough Time for Wedding Dress Alterations

 

When you find your wedding dress, you may think the hard part is over…but when the dress arrives, you are likely to have something altered. Even if the dress fits you perfectly at that time, leave enough time before the wedding day to check if the dress still fits you perfectly or not. 

 

You Can’t Let Go of the Little Things

 

Many brides can count on at least one hand the details that did not go according to plan. Just know everything cannot go according to what you’ve planned, that doesn’t mean your day is ruined. The key is to let them happen and enjoy the day. 

 

You Forget to Eat

 

Last but not least among the things brides forget is to eat. Your wedding day is a very busy, overwhelming day. Get a good breakfast and plenty of water. And then enjoy everything that’s served at the event, you’ve earned it. After months of not eating, focusing on your body, you’ve finally achieved what you’ve wanted. Now EAT and enjoy your day.

Post event anxiety or stress is normal because we always have a vision in our minds of how something will go and of course, it never quite matches up. While many newlyweds are blissed out, others are hit with the post-wedding blues, and it can be debilitating. Big life changes — even positive ones like an engagement, or marriage, can trigger stress, anxiety and other negative emotions. 

The important part is to examine your feelings and make sure the anxiety is about the Event and not your new spouse. As a bride or groom, you are facing a difficult adjustment period in the first year, and the “post-wedding stress” just doesn’t make it any easier. Good news. This effect is temporary. Life will soon return to normal, and with it, your perspective and humor. 

The key to avoiding the post-wedding blues is organization; the more prepared you are, the less you’ll suffer afterwards. 

 

– It is not unusual to feel down after the intense planning and preparations – and being the focus of attention. Suddenly, it’s all over. There’s no use stressing about it. Remind yourself how well you’ve done, even if everything doesn’t quite go to plan. Holding on to some perspective helps to lessen the post-wedding blues. Go do couple things… You’re married now, so go out as a married couple. Discover new things together, be proactive, not depressed.

 

– The psychological transition you’re making from single woman to married woman can sometimes be overwhelming. In order to grow into the new lifestyle and identity as a married person, you must shed the old identity as single. Your hormones and psychology may flail slightly given the emotional height of the day and the big commitment you’ve made, but it’s usually nothing to worry about. Share it with other newly weds. Search for other recently married women who may have the same feelings of the “after-wedding blues.”

 

– You’re not as occupied anymore, the wedding sucked up a lot of time. And now you suddenly have your evenings free. All the stress of planning—or putting up with your fiancée’s planning, now you don’t have all that to do so you’re bored. And boredom leads to depression. Get involved with something new. Discover a new passion, and dive in headfirst.

 

– Recognise that your wedding isn’t the same as your marriage. You should accept that you’re going to get back to a different ‘normal’ & marriage is life-changing. But when you think about the lovely and loving reasons that brought you here, you should feel better almost immediately. You just have to remember that you had a beautiful wedding day and focus on the next positive thing in your life! Your married life. Sticking to the positive will help you more than you expect. you expect.

How to Save Money On A Wedding!

by admin

First comes love, then comes marriage and then paying for the wedding. I’m sure you’ve already guessed it by now why no one writes fairy tales about the latter! 

While Pakistan has been witnessing economic challenges in recent days, and how Imran Khan has made everything costlier. The room/house rent, the food, the electricity, the Shaadi halls and almost every other thing has become expensive. Most people are now scared that they might end up paying taxes on getting married. Well, thankfully that’s not happened yet, but you never know. With everything being so expensive most maybe wondering how to pull off the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank. 

I know I have don’t have to say this being a pure Pakistani but don’t hesitate to negotiate on everything. AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.

 

 Don’t Get Married In The Wedding Season

Try not to get married at off-peak wedding times, especially November, early December. You can also avoid weekends. Just think “off season” for your wedding date. Plus food and beverage minimums are lower. You’ll save money! 

 

Avoid Weekends

Since Saturday is the most popular day of the week for weddings, it’s also the most expensive. And no one said “Saturday in June” wedding couples have a lot more fun than the others!

 

The Food

Keep it simple. Don’t compromise quality over quantity. It is better to serve limited dishes rather than confuse your guests to choose what to eat. 

 

Right Venue

Try to book venues with in-house catering options as this will significantly bring down your cost of renting the venue. Most venues offer great deals for mid-week weddings, as well as off-season dates and not to brag but we can totally help you with it.

 

Ditch Multiple Venues for Events

Host your wedding and reception at the same venue, hosting both your events at the same venue will cost less but why have multiple events? Just one is fine, Think about it.

 

The Invitations

Go paperless! You can send invitations online for free with Joy! A wedding website that also lets you manage your guest list and track RSVPs! 

 

Save on Photography

Opt for a digital album rather than choosing a physical one. Avoiding prints can help you save a lot of money. Book the photographer for only eight to ten hours instead of a full day. Just go for one photographer rather than two and don’t be shy, let them know what your budget is from the get go.

 

We Have The Perfect Idea

Why not create a wedding website? Have your formal invitation, but save on costs, by including all the important details such as maps, directions, transport and accommodation on your wedding website. The beauty of it is that it doesn’t have to cost a thing! That’s exactly where we can help, the all-in-one package show.

Its that time alright. You’ve fought long and hard, you’ve kept secrets from your khandaan, escaped the eyes of Pakistani TV media personalities and now you’re here. It was a long and arduous journey till the baat pakki and now your wedding day is upon you. Surely by now you must have learned it’s never going to be easy. Woh toh bus shuruwaat thi.

However, that’s not to say everyone has it rough, not every family is opposed to a love marriage or more specifically the guy/girl of your choice, and even smoother is an arranged marriage. Yes, you might cry yourself to sleep because you couldn’t marry the guy/girl you wanted but it’s ok, kyun k family bohat achi hai aur paisa bohath hai. That’s sure to soothe the pain, because when you have problems throw money at it. 

Coming back to the topic at hand, your wedding is coming up! Get ready to deal with lots of problems because arranging a wedding is no easy task. Here’s something you might face

 

Food/Catering

We’re going to start off by listing the most important problem in this article. Food.

Why? Because more than the bride and the groom, this is what’s going to be talked about on your wedding and after. We all know people who only go to weddings for the food. I mean it’s the only time where you get to go on an all you can eat buffet. Nobody wants to hear the khana acha nahi tha. So the majority of your time is going to be spent finding the right caterer, because not every dish on the menu is going to win awards. Someone’s kebabs might be really good but biryani a disappointment, where as someone might do the karahi really well, but totally mess up the paye.

And more than other people, it’s your own family you fear the most, because their approval is what you’re yearning for. I mean will you settle to hear the words ”oh god, the food was very average, so much tael, not like our shaguftah wedding haan. Chalo not everyone can afford good caterers.”

 

The Missing Invite

God forbid if you don’t deliver a wedding card personally all hell will break loose. 2019 folks, you can’t just send a digital invite on “the what’s up”, that’s so rude. No no no, you have to personally go to deliver printed invitation to everyone. You have to DHL or TCS the invite if a rishtedar is living abroad, I mean if you can’t go on a flight and personally deliver it to them, then this is the least you can do. However, If you forget to send it to anyone, consider bonds being broken, family members gossiping about you, tarnishing your reputation.

“Did you know shagufta ki shaadi hai, usnay card bhi nahi bheja, i had to hear it from my daughter that there’s a Facebook group asking her to save the date. I mean what nonsense.”

“Ithni to tameez hothi, k card dede, matlab shaadi hain, khud ki phupo ko bhool jatha hai koi? Anyway i hope the food is good.”

These are the people that don’t understand that with so much planning sometimes a person genuinely forgets. So if you find anything less than a 1000 rupee note in one of the envelopes you can be rest assured it’s from someone whom you forgot to give the card to. 

 

Larka Kaun Hai?

See it doesn’t matter how much you love him, it doesn’t matter, arranged or love, doesn’t matter if your family approves or disapproves, but the rest of the world only cares about the larka. Your phupos, the auntie’s your mom’s friends with, even your friends mother, they want to know. Here’s a little idea as to how” the larka kaun hai?” conversation goes down.

 

Aunty: So Farida what news, how’s everything?

Mom: bus our Aneela is getting married, abhi uski baath paki hoi hai

Aunty (eyebrows raised, eyes popping out of her sockets) : ohhh achaa, wow congratulations , bohath boahth mubarak  – translation (tumhari beti ko larka mil gaya? Meri beti ko kyun nahi mila abhi koi?)

Mom: haan last week hi hui thi.

Aunty: ohh acha, how lovely, waisay larka kaun hai? – translation (is he moneyed? Ghar kithna bara hai? Passport hai? Influential family? Job kiya kartha hai? Settled hai?

Mom:  oh very nice boy, Aneela ki class mai tha

Aunty (doesn’t know how to maintain smile): oh achaa. Chalo Allah khush rakhay.

Now this conversation will be repeated many times, and the majority of the times it will be repeated with a third person most probably between two aunties. And believe you me a lot will be said and discussed.

 

The Jewellery 

You need the right jewellery for your wedding dress, after all the heavy jora you’ve spent thousands on isn’t going to cut it, you need to accessorise it with jewellery. Your mom in law might want you to wear the necklace she wore on her wedding day, maybe your mom wants to do the same. Who do you make happy? However, you see that doesn’t matter because regardless of what you wear and how much you wear, all people are interested in is whether its real or not, and how much it costs.

 

Unnecessary Advice

People love giving advice, maybe it’s because they genuinely want to help but for a new bride and groom it may well be completely unnecessary. After all, it’s not like what happened to you might happen to them. And mostly this advice always comes from relatives, they want to share their expertise on the matter, because obviously once you’re married you know everything about marriages. What they don’t realise is this can be extremely daunting for a new couple, especially if it’s arranged. Like no Beenish aunty I don’t want to know if it’s advisable to eat spicy food the day before your wedding. After all who can eat with all that mehndi on your hands anyway.

Asking for your partner’s hand in marriage is one of the biggest moments in your life. With such a big moment headed your way, you want to make sure you’re best prepared, after all you want your partner to know you’ve put a considerable amount of thought into this. 

Now we don’t mean, bending down and going on one knee, after all that’s so cliché, its 2019 ya’ll, get on with the times. See everyone does that, but wouldn’t you rather give your partner a proposal he or she will remember? One that they will look back on fondly every time they take a trip down memory lane? Of course you would! 

I mean you only get married once right? Hopefully. 

Well then let’s get started.

 

The Photo-booth Proposal:

Now you know and we know that the best time to surprise anyone is when they’re least expecting it. After all who in their right mind will expect a marriage proposal in the middle of a photo booth / shoot session. 

You press the start button and as the booth takes click and snaps your impromptu photo-shoot where your making funny faces imagine the look on her face when you bust out that box and pop it open and BAM, the machine has done its job, capturing the moments before during and after that ring has been busted out. Now that sir is candid.

 

Destination proposal:

Now we all know about a destination wedding, but how about a destination proposal, planning a trip with your soul mate. The two of you alone? Check! Beautiful place? Check! Romantic mood! Check. Ring? Check. Yes? You know it brother. 

 

Facebook live:

Are you the type that would ask for your partner’s hand in marriage in public? In Front of a large crowd? Well in that case facebook live is perfect for you. Make sure you know where the love of your life is, go live, walk right up to her and ask her to marry you. If she says yes, then mission accomplished. If she says no well, let’s just hope not too many people were watching your live stream. 

 

Instagram Anniversary Proposal:

Since we’re talking about Facebook live and what not, here’s another social media proposal idea.

Remember the day you guys made it official? Well, wait for that date to come on a few minutes before the clock strikes 12 upload 9 Instagram posts of one picture that says “Will you marry me?” super imposed on a picture of the both of you. And then wait for her call or for her to comment. 

 

The Old Fashioned Way:

Forget everything, have your mom call her mom. Don’t tell you Phupos because we know the humans in snake skin. At this point you want to stay away from “Nazar”.

Now imagine her reaction when her mom goes up to her and says ”Call ayi thi ’….’ ammi kii. ” That’s sure to get her heart racing. Maybe that’s how it should be done instead of the mentioned Yahoodi tricks to charm your woman.

 

Bonus- idea:  Place the damn ring in a box of chicken nuggets from McDonalds sprinkle it with fries. And you, sir, are now engaged, congratulations! If she loves to eat that’s a definite YES!

Basin and Haldi

Whether it was to cure suntan, acne, dry skin or oily skin, Basin and Haldi used to be the face mask our dadis, nanis and moms used. Basin acts as a cleansing agent for the skin and haldi has a moisturising effect. All you need to do is to mix the two and apply it all over your body and keep it for five minutes. Multani mitti can also be used for body glow.
