While Hamza and Naimal’s wedding is old news at this point, netizens still can’t get over it. In fact, the couple’s wedding is winning praise for one very ‘simple’ reason.
At a time where the #Aineeb and #Ambani weddings have broken records for being glitzy and super expensive to the hilt, it’s refreshing to see this intimate yet relatively inexpensive one held by Hamza and Naimal.
Fans are on board for this rustic, simple and intimate wedding trend too. Amidst the recent trend of couples trying to out-do each other with a grandiose wedding, many of us feel put off by the superficial materialism behind it all.
Some people may argue in favor of this culture of upstaging each other’s weddings, going so far as to mention that a wedding has to reflect your social standing. However, celebrities like Hamza Ali Abbasi and Naimal Khawar have proven that there’s no shame in keeping it simple.
Fans Love This Simple Wedding By Hamza Abbasi and Naimal Khawar
People should realize that when it comes to weddings, it’s your day and it should be about you, not your bank statement (say hello to FBR).
It goes without saying but repeats mentioning all the same. All that competition of having the grandest celebration ever can go as far as making families go bankrupt for life.
So we got to ask – is making a statement with weddings worth it if it reflects on your bank statement?
In this economy, as expenses get higher and higher, we have to thank these two for steering the conversation towards more equal and inexpensive celebrations. Both Hamza and Naimal invited a few friends at their wedding at The Monal. In fact, it is also widely known that Hamza opted for a simple BBQ with friends instead of a full-fledged dholki.
So how strongly are people trucking this bandwagon?

Hamza's wedding is exactly kind of my ideal wedding. Simple. Real. Closed friends. Serene place. No extravagant stuff. No pre wedding functions! May Allah bless them with all the happiness this world has! Ameen. #HamzaWedsNaimal pic.twitter.com/gHepTseoCO

Kudos to #HamzaAliAbbasi & #NaimalKhawar on a simple and elegant wedding.
Marriage is a personal matter.But, people do emulate celebrities.
Their #Simplicity can help shatter pointless rituals of ‘social pressures’.
Mubarak to both💍

Their wedding was a close, cozy and traditional event.
Speaking of tradition, Naimal Khawar didn’t even buy a dress. She wore her mother’s wedding dress.
Wearing her mother's wedding outfit no branded langha 25,30 lakh wala no jewelry with cost of dollars..In industry if i say they deserve respect n duas then nothing will be wrong i guess.More love n duas to new couple…Allah bless you both..#HamzaWedsNaimal@Naimalkhawarr pic.twitter.com/Y46J22NskN

Hamza Ali Abbasi and Naimal Khawar 1st Couple to Have a Low-key Wedding?
Contrary to what this netizen (below) had to say, prior to these two, many other celebs have also opted for a closed, low-key wedding.

Remember Fiza Ali’s wedding to Ayyaz Malik? The actress announced that she tied the knot in a low-key simple affair via Facebook.
Then there was Yasra Rizvi and Abdul Hadi’s alt-simple wedding, with her ‘Haq Mehr‘ (monetary security paid to the bride, like pre-wedding alimony) as Namaz-e-Fajr.
Let’s not forget Mahjabeen Habib the white bride, with a home wedding.
#Haimal's wedding was the simplest yet elegant wedding I've seen, as they both are celebrity but there was no showsha kinda stuff. Simply well organized venue, beautifully decorated with white florals and fairy lights and that's the best details I've noticed ✨

MashaAllah what a beautiful couple❤
Keep it simple & make it significant is the lesson we learn here. It's only the love & understanding that matters more than a lavish wedding. May Allah bless you both in this new venture. @iamhamzaabbasi @Naimalkhawarr#HamzaWedsNaimal pic.twitter.com/OoQq3esnkJ

We hope this wedding trend is here to stay, with the onset of ‘shadi season’ as the weather clears up.

Even people that aren’t Hamza Ali Abbasi’s biggest fans are onboard for this simple wedding trend he’s setting.
I have had disagreements on some points with Hamza ali Abbasi as it's with everybody, but yes he has won hearts by such a simple wedding.
good luck & best wishes for both of you. #HamzaWedsNaimal

There were no ‘simpering old folks’ calling out the PDA between the bride and groom.

There were some ‘traditionalists’ amid the crowd.
No fazool rasoomat like dholki, mehndi, barat on 🚁, bridal shower 😂 etc etc and yet they managed to arrange a PERFECT wedding mashaAllah so happy to see this… literally wedding goals #HamzaWedsNaimal ❤️ @iamhamzaabbasi @Naimalkhawarr pic.twitter.com/kLuk3gDIiO

In the end let’s not forget that those who can afford it, can have a grandiose wedding. But we do hope that families don’t feel that it is absolutely necessary to go all out (and bankrupt in the process) to have a ‘dhoom-dhaam wali’ shadi.
Good for them if they wanted to keep their shaadi affair simple. However, anyone who ‘wants’ to not ‘needs’ to spend more on their shaadi does not make one less of a person. Har kisi ki apni apni choice hai. Live and let live. #HamzaWedsNaimal
