At a unique and lavish marriage ceremony in Mandi Bahauddin district, the friends of the groom showered mobile phones and currency notes from the rooftop of a marriage hall at Phalia Road, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.
The expensive dresses were also showered over the people during the marriage ceremony. The friend of the groom, who is a local trader of Mandi Bahauddin, kept on showering Pakistani and foreign currency notes on people for several hours.
The wedding procession had arrived at Phalia marriage hall from Ward No 5.

A similar type of ceremony was also held in a suburban village of Sialkot city last year when expensive gifts, mobile phones and currency notes were showered over people.
A video had gone viral on social media platforms in January 2022. In the video, the family and relatives were seen showering mobile phones, shawls and currency notes at a wedding ceremony organised in a suburban Jathekey village of Sambrial Tehsil of Sialkot.
The family and relatives of landlords made the wedding ceremony as memorable moments after showering warm shawls and mobile phones.
As soon as the wedding procession reached the village, a large number of people gathered there to collect mobile phones, shawls and currency notes. The groom’s friends and family were given a grand welcome by the relatives of the bride.
In another marriage ceremony in Mandi Bahauddin in March last year, a helicopter was used to shower the guests with currency notes including dollars and pounds. A video clip showed currency notes being showered down on a wedding procession from a helicopter.
The brothers of the groom, who had come from abroad to celebrate their brother’s wedding, had specially arranged for a helicopter to shower currency notes and flowers on the ‘barat’ guests.
