From missing paneer to bone marrow feud, bizarre stories from India's wedding season

If you're Indian, you know that along with celebrations, the wedding season often brings drama and some rather peculiar incidents that make headlines. Let's dive into some of the craziest events that unfolded at Indian weddings this year.

Beginning with the most recent incident, a wedding in Telangana was called off due to a dispute over the absence of mutton bone marrow in the non-vegetarian menu chosen by the bride's family, resulting in escalated arguments and police intervention.


1. Mutton bone marrow mishap

A wedding in Telangana was called off due to a series of disagreements stemming from the groom's side of the family. The conflict arose when the groom's family realized that mutton bone marrow was not included in the non-vegetarian menu selected by the bride's side.

  • The couple had their engagement at the bride's residence in November. However, following the engagement party, the groom's family made the decision to cancel the wedding, as reported by NDTV.
  • The situation escalated significantly, prompting the immediate involvement of the police, who attempted to mediate and resolve the issue.
  • Despite efforts to reconcile, the groom's family deemed it an "insult" and stood firm on their decision to call off the wedding.

2. The case of missing paneer 

The incident, known as the case of missing paneer, involved a rather extreme reaction to a food issue at a wedding. Despite our expectations of enjoying a variety of food at weddings, it's unimaginable to resort to violence, especially not throwing chairs at each other over a food item, right?

However, a shocking incident unfolded at a wedding where the absence of paneer in the 'Matar Paneer dish' led to a significant altercation.

A widely circulated viral video on social media depicted guests hurling chairs at each other, resulting from a dispute between attendees from the bride and groom's sides.


This heated confrontation erupted due to the absence of paneer pieces in the 'matar paneer' served during the feast.

3. Bride calls off wedding over groom disapproval by friends

We often hear about weddings being called off due to family objections to the groom, but this incident presents a different scenario. In December, a 20-year-old bride was set to marry her 30-year-old cousin, an arranged marriage by her family.

However, the bride opted to cancel her wedding after consulting with her friends. Tragically, a few days later, the bride was found deceased at her residence in Tamil Nadu.

4. Bride calls off the wedding as the groom cannot count money 

  • Complete transparency is crucial for a successful wedding. However, events took an unexpected turn in Farrukhabad's district in UP.

  • A 21-year-old bride decided to cancel her wedding because the groom, who had a pre-existing mental illness concealed by his family, couldn't count currency notes.

  • This revelation came to light during the marriage rituals when the priest raised concerns about the groom's behaviour, causing distress among the bride's family.

  • Identified as Reeta Singh from Durgapur village in Mohammadabad Kotwall area, the bride promptly withdrew from the proceedings. This led to a heated argument between the families, requiring police intervention.

  • Remarkably, the bride's family had no prior knowledge of the 23-year-old groom's mental condition until the wedding day.


Which of these incidents is the most bizarre?
