A Pakistani wedding in Dubai went viral as gold bars were given to the groom’s family as dowry.

Even more extravagance was showcased as the father of the bride, a businessman based in the United Arab Emirates, gave his daughter’s weight in gold bars.

Footage of the expensive dowry exchange went viral.

Videos showed the bride and groom making their way to the stage. Meanwhile, guests watched in anticipation of what is about to happen.

One guest is seen pushing a chair towards the stage.

It is then revealed that a massive set of weighing scales is on stage.

The bride then sits on one side of the scales. As the groom stands and watches, family members begin placing gold bars on the other side until the scales are balanced.

Guests cheered and clapped at the extravagant display of wealth.

After the gold was weighed, the newlyweds and their family members posed for pictures.

They later danced before making their way out of the venue whilst being showered with rose petals.

According to reports, the bride weighed around 70 kilograms, meaning the equivalent weight in gold was given as dowry.

Videos went viral, however, many social media users were annoyed by the ostentatious display of wealth.

Lots of people were angry, especially because Pakistan is experiencing an economic crisis.

One said: “In these times, with inflation, wars and whatnot, this is just disgusting to look at.

“If these people have this much money, why don’t they give it to charity and help out the ones who are struggling.”

Another said: “That’s exactly what’s wrong with society. Show off.”

A third wrote:

“Sick! How about weighing the poverty of your country and donating that gold of yours.”

Some urged the businessman to donate the gold to the earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.

One person wrote: “If that gold is donated to earthquake survivors in Syria and Turkey, maybe the blessings of the newlyweds will be 1,000 times more.”

Others said it was a reminder of the divide between the super-rich and common people.

However, some believed the showcase was fake while others said it was objectifying the bride.

Amid Pakistan’s economic crisis, the government has announced several measures to cut expenses.

This includes asking cabinet members to forgo their salaries and perks, no five-star stays during trips abroad, serving only one dish at government functions and more.
