The Secret Diary of a Bengali Bridezilla
And I thought finding a husband was hard...
One couple. Three months. 600 guests (most of whom I’ve never met) and LOTS of opinions.
Welcome to my big fat Bangladeshi wedding.
- [ ] Find top makeup artist
- [ ] Create meaningful favours
- [ ] Outdo my cousins impending nuptials
- [ ] Have nervous breakdown?
I’ve found my dream man but will my wedding day be a nightmare? If Fleabag and Bridget Jones got together over tea and a samosa, this is what you’d get. Former journalist Halima Khatun’s hilarious follow-up to The Secret Diary of an Arranged Marriage is a must read for anyone looking for British wit with a multicultural twist.

Style, and has been featured in the Express, Metro and other national publications. Halima also blogs on lifestyle, food and travel and parenthood on halimabobs.com.
