Guys shaadi season hai so here's my wedding story in a thread so you guys know that having apni marzi ki shaadi is possible.— Rizwan. (@RizwanPehelwan) December 22, 2018
My guest list had 25 names: friends and parents. The venue was my terrace. The menu was chicken tikka, seekh kabab, pathooray chanay halwa strawberries.
In no time, the post spread like a wildfire. It went on winning thousands of hearts even across the borders. The thread is indeed so cute and a wake up call for all those Indians who don’t mind indebting themselves for the sake of big fat Indian wedding.
I set my max budget at Rs. 20,000. A friend lent his cooks, I bought the chicken and masalay from that money and helped prepare it all. Wife cooked khattay alu as a starter. Dad bought fairy lights n put them up on the terrace.— Rizwan. (@RizwanPehelwan) December 22, 2018
I borrowed 25 chairs from the neighborhood election committee lmao. I forgot dessert so @RizWanKenobi_ brought strawberries n ice cream. He also brought tables for the food. @HaseenaAtomBum and @hiranajam FLEW IN FOR THIS.— Rizwan. (@RizwanPehelwan) December 22, 2018
My wife and I wore plain blue shalwar kameez (mom n sis paid for this as a gift). We all ate and talked till midnight when wapda cut us off. The whole shaadi then moved to Manji Munch DHA and then bas. Khush! Done!— Rizwan. (@RizwanPehelwan) December 22, 2018

Rizwan explains how every member of his family made his wedding a success. “My guest list had 25 names: friends and parents. The venue was my terrace. The menu was chicken tikka, seekh kabab, pathooray chanay halwa strawberries,” his tweet reads.
Talking about extravagant weddings, the nuptials of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal was the costliest wedding we’ve seen so far. Mukesh Ambani, the honcho of Reliance industries, spent as much as Rs 700 crores for his daughter’s wedding. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas and Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh weddings were no less. Both the leading ladies of Bollywood had a destination wedding at dreamy locations.

Amid the big fat Indian weddings that have been happening around us, a wedding like this is a breath of fresh air. We hope like this obnoxious trend of extravagant weddings settle down soon.
