"When electrical engineers get married."
A Pakistani groom made sure his wife stood out for her mehendi by designing a lehenga that was embellished with LED lights.
The bride, Rehab Danial, shared glimpses from her wedding celebrations on Instagram.
While the main wedding celebrations were a visual spectacle, much of the attention was on her mehendi outfit.
She explained that her husband Danial Azam added LED lights to her yellow lehenga, which shone brightly when the lights were turned off.
The video showed the couple matching in yellow as they entered the venue.
But when the lights were turned off, green and purple hues shone.
Rehab even did a twirl, showing off her unique outfit.
Meanwhile, Danial danced and was showered with money by some of the guests.
Rehab was appreciative of her husband’s gesture and wrote:
“Throwback to my Mehndi 2023.
“My dress was designed by my sooper dooper husband who always wanted his bride to shine bright with lights on his big day.
“I was told that people will make fun of you but I wore it proudly, as I know no man did such kind of effort for their bride.”
Rehab also shared pictures from her mehendi, revealing that the venue had turned off the lights. One image showed the bride sitting in the dark while her lehenga remained lit.
She said: “Since you guys showed so much love on my last mehendi post.
“The last one will give you a laugh when Pakistani wedding halls turn their lights off at exactly 10 pm, but hey I had my LED dress, thanks to my husband.”
Social media users congratulated the couple while others praised Danial for his efforts.
One user said: “Cute.”
Another wrote: “Have a blessed life ahead.”

However, some users had less favourable comments to say about the LED lehenga.
One person told Rehab: “He hates you secretly.”
Another wrote: “I would love for my husband to keep his efforts to himself.”
One person said Danial should have matched with lights on his waistcoat, writing:
“He could have attached a few bulbs on his clothes as well.”
Revealing what they would do, a user said:
“I would have divorced him then and there.”
Some users took the opportunity to troll the couple, with one netizen commenting:
“Her husband must be an electrician!”
Another added: “Her husband is into Christmas trees.”
One comment read: “When electrical engineers get married.”
One person said it was a good idea but suggested a possible improvement, saying:
“The idea was good but not done properly tbh! It would have been better if they used glowing fabric or anything well-designed.”
