Indian weddings are a grand affair. From food to the rituals, you can taste everything in the extravaganza. However, in a freak incident, a bride from Haldwani in Uttarakhand canceled her wedding after the groom’s family sent her a “cheap” lehenga, according to one Times of India report.
The outlet further said that just days before the wedding, the woman split with her fiancé, who belongs to Almora, because the groom’s father had sent his future daughter-in-law a lehenga costing Rs 10,000. She did not appreciate the clothes because of the low price and poor quality, the report claimed.
The couple got engaged in June this year and their wedding date was set for November 5.
When the case escalated, both families went to the police India today. Police from Kotwali Police Station managed to calm them down and send them home. But the groom’s family raised the matter again, saying that they had already printed the wedding invitation cards.
After this, again with the intervention of the police, a settlement was reached and the wedding was called off.
Speaking of weddings and bizarre incidents, a few months ago a Pakistani groom wore a garland of banknotes. However, the pendulum was gigantic, so much so that the groom had to enlist the help of his friends to keep it together on the wedding stage. At least six people, including the groom, hid behind the giant garland.
This custom is not only practiced in Pakistan, it is also a common ritual in North Indian states. However, the Reserve Bank of India had warned people and issued a statement saying that banknotes should be respected as they are a symbol of the sovereign and people should not misuse them.
