What? You didn't get your invitation to the wedding of Asma Hasan, author of Why I Am a Muslim, and Tahir Ali? It's an extravaganza you won't want to miss -- if Malik and Seeme Hasan, through their Hasan Family Foundation, could pay $300,00 for losing gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis's "Musings on Water," just imagine what they would do for their daughter's wedding! And fortunately, you don't have to miss it -- because the wedding on Sunday, as well as the traditional Mehwndi ceremony tomorrow night, will be available by webcast.
Here are the details:
But if you watch, be sure to send an appropriate gift through Seabel's, a Pueblo store where the happy couple, who met online, is registered. Although they've already received the requested twelve Missoni "Margherita" settings "Dinner plate, salad plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer (Rose Pink)" at $395 per, they're still short of toasting flutes, fruit saucers and espresso cups.
Best wishes, Asma and Tahir!
