This year has witnessed one wedding after another, and with each one the benchmark for expensive celebrations has become higher. Flouting the trend, on December 23, a man from Karachi, Pakistan had a 'big fat wedding', but on a pocket-friendly budget.

Capping the limit at 20,000 Pakistani rupees (or 10,000 INR), he still managed to pull off a celebration filled with pomp and razzmatazz.

The Twitter-verse was privy to the festivities through the groom's frequent updates on the micro-blogging site. From setting the budget to getting all the details right, in the age of the expensive wedding pictures flooding social media, this sure is a breath of fresh, and this sentiment echoed across Twitter.

Rizwan also aptly called it a ‘apni marzi ki shaadi’.

Common knowledge: a party without fairy lights is incomplete.. So he gave credit where it was due.

But where did the guests sit?

He also mentioned long chats with friends and family, with the warmth reflected in his tweets. In this one, he also revealed his bride's outfit.

Before people assume it to be a farce, he posted a picture of himself, to make sure there were no doubts about the whole thing.

It wasn't the guests alone who enjoyed the terrace-top wedding, there were many more on Twitter who joined in. ‘Happiness is all that matters’ said a user on reading the photographer's wedding trail, while ‘this is inspiring’ commented one online 'guest'.

Weddings must be filled with excitement and loads of happiness; and this one was an affirmation of that.
