“…Manar Abdrabbo, 22, of Dublin, will try to mix three cultures in her wedding. She and her husband, who is Pakistani, have been legally married since December but will not live together until after their Muslim ceremony in September.
Yesterday, Abdrabbo tried on a light-pink dress adorned with sequins as her mother and her future mother-in-law looked on.
She bought the dress for a traditional Pakistani pre-wedding event at which women gather to read from the Quran.
Her wedding gown will be white because that’s the typical color in Egypt, where she was born. Indian and Pakistani dresses are brightly colored, often red.
Abdrabbo couldn’t find dresses at typical bridal shows like the ones she saw yesterday, she said.
“As much as we are all American, everyone has roots they like to stay close to,” she said.”
