Urwa Hocane and Farhan Saeed redefined celebrity weddings in Pakistan. Earlier, celebrity weddings have mostly been exclusive affairs, with only only a handful of images or videos made public on social media.
Farhan proposed to Urwa, in front of the Eiffel Tower and shared the picture on his official Facebook as well as Instagram page. Leaving all the public wondering why he couldn’t have just chosen a local spot.
It seemed as ato fulfil there desire of getting validation via social media. That is what prompted them to have their wedding ‘trend’ on social media. Alarmingly, a trending wedding is the latest unfathomable concept to enamor a considerable segment of our society.
While some people criticised the wedding, others felt we should ‘live and let live’ and not pass judgement on the couple’s private business.
Here are some of the comments people made on Facebook on their wedding
However, with the media specially invited to their wedding, with fashion designers listed like ‘sponsors’ on their wedding invitations, with a ‘red carpet’ set up at their wedding it was by no means a private event. Since this was a public event, people have every write to pass remarks on their wedding whether the couple and their family likes it or not. This can however not be said about a private event which it certainly wasn’t.
Before the social media and wedding hashtags, weddings had been intimate affairs where relatives and friends got together, danced, had fun. Now, they’ve metamorphosed into superficial productions where everything from the décor to the designer wedding-wear to the professionally choreographed dances gets publicised for all to see. In a society rife with economic discrepancies this could be considered insensitive.
Fawad Khan and his wife were also guests at the couple’s wedding.
On private Facebook accounts and in their drawing rooms, the city’s supposed upper tier turned up their noses and derided the wedding but no one chose to speak of it on a public forum. No one openly expressed how appalling the concept of a sponsored wedding truly was.
