Pakistani Bridal's getting better !!

Firstly I am an Indian.
But lately all the Indian Bridal weeks that have been showing the latest bridal trends in India has got me worried. Everything is OTT. The fabrics being used are terrible. The is no fine work anymore, its all big and bling bling !! The color are too "jhatak " . Nothing is making me go "wow" anymore.
Speaking strictly from bridal point of view : While Pakistani cuts and drapes are not what we Indians would wear, its a bit tooo conservative too many yards of fabric here and to me bridal means either sari or ghagara choli. I don't like these long tops over skirts !!! But speaking of the craftsmanship , fabric and color schemes are amazing.
Yea sure we are more open to changes and have more garments to work with, In India we do all kinds of clothing, I Pakistan there is only salwar kameez and bridal wear and Indian designers cater to the Int'l market as well and by tht I dont mean Indian living abroad but actual foreigners. Case in point Falguni and Shane Peacock, Naseem Khan !!!
I am not trying to say one is better than the other, so please refrain from negative commentating. India used to do this before so its not all this work is nothing new. So where have all the embroiderers gone. But I just feel Indian designer are not giving importance to "karigiri" any more.
But Pakistani designer can no way compare to Indians in salwar kameez, their idea of those loose pants and capris to wear under the kameez just make me faint !!! And western , umm the less said the better !!
Anyway so here are a few pics that I found
