Weddings are lavish affairs and people often go over the top doing things that are borderline bizarre. Remember the time when an Indian family served ‘gold rice’ to the guests? Not to forget the forwarded photos of brides covered in gold ornaments. However, recently, it’s not a bride but a groom in Pakistan who garnered way too much attention for wearing gold worth around Rs 25 lakhs! It didn’t take too much time for his photos to go viral.
According to reports, the groom from Lahore wore an exquisite golden suit to his Walima – the reception party – worth Pakistani Rs 63,000. The suit was embellished with crystals adding another Rs 16000 to the cost. And to complement his lavish attire, he decided to add oomph with a gold tie. A tie made of solid gold weighing 10 tolas which approximately cost him Rs 5 lakhs in Pakistani currency.

And if all that bling was not enough to steal the thunder, he decided to jazz it up further. Well, guess what, instead of wearing normal tan brown shoes, he wore golden shoes to match his outfit. No, not just a golden coloured product but a shoe made of real gold with floral patterns on it! Weighing 32 tolas, it costed him ‘just’ Rs 17 lakhs in Pakistani currency.
