Doctor Shares How His Wife Is Spending ₹4.17 Lakh To Attend Friend’s Destination Wedding

Gone are the days when people were happy to be freeloaders at a wedding taking place within their families’ or friends’ circles, where they would go, eat, drink, make merry and come back home. Nowadays, attending a friend’s wedding is quite the task – one has to prepare a bachelor’s/bachelorette’s party, a bridal shower, buy elaborate gifts, fancy outfits, and what not. If there happens to be a destination wedding, be prepared to burn a hole in your pockets.

For example, a doctor named Sravan Panuganti shared how his wife is the bridesmaid for one of her friend’s destination wedding and is to spend about Rs 4.17 lakh for it. The expenses include attending the bachelorette party, bridal shower, purchasing a dress, and the travel cost of the entire family to go to the wedding.
