Rukhsati takes place, when the groom and his family will leave together with the bride. The Qur'an is normally held over the brides head as she walks from the stage to the exit in order to bless her.
In Pakistani culture, the wedding is not the last of the wedding festivities. That would be the valima (pronounced vah-lee-ma), a lavish reception thrown by the groom’s parents. The Valima is a resplendent reception to introduce the newlyweds to the community for the first time. The valima is typically a very festive affair, with a delicious spread of food and joyous music and dancing.
