College fests and annual functions are some of the rare occasions when the college sees full attendance by the students. These are some of the events where we had the most fun and made memories that last a lifetime.
Students at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in Pakistan also organized a fun annual fest. But, it was nothing like the ones we have been witnessing.
These kids decided to organize a fake wedding complete with a fake couple, a baraat, and the wedding ceremony. However, the celebrations were grand and OTT.
The kids organized the mock wedding ‘Batch Shadi’ wherein two kids, Taimoor and Mahnoor, were wedded with customs, just for fun. They even had a wedding hashtag for the couple #Tainoor.
Visuals of the wedding from LUMS have been all over social media.

Explaining what exactly happened at this shaadi, a student from LUMS said that the couple who would be fake married at the event were chosen via an election. After the dulha and dulhan were finalized, the wedding was planned which started right from the ceremony where the fake families of the couple formally met and gave a nod to the wedding.
The infamous LUMS Shadi, explained?

The three-day event saw every ritual unfold right from Haldi to Mehendi, Sangeet, Baraat, Shaadi, and Vidaai.

The event was nothing short of fun. It was like friends having a gala time at their friends’ wedding without the problem causing rishtedaars.

People online had mixed opinions about the fake wedding. While some thought it was wholesome, others slammed students for mocking something as sacred as a wedding.
guys the fake shadi at lums was absolutely wholesome pls stop shitting at every single thing just because you weren’t a part of it.

Coincidentally, I was at LUMS the day the mock wedding was happening. The atmosphere on campus was so joyous. Took me right back to my PU days where antakshari on trips to Kallar Kahar & Rohtas Fort was the highlight of our lives. These kids seemed no different to me. https://t.co/krgS2kAVWh

Mann, I love it, they look so cute. We used to do these kinda things when we were kids like gudda guddi ki Shaadi, so why not now? I know they're not gudda guddi though but still.. waise bhi life mai thoda halla gulla hona chahiye.
I am obsessed with it.#lums pic.twitter.com/lBpAoIphxy

The lums wedding just proves that the vibes are immaculate without the relatives. Just friends who love you for who you are, dancing, laughing. Celebrating.
