Wedding, functions, and festivities are part of every culture but there are rules attached to each event and occasion that must be followed.

Plan things accordingly so that your big day doesn’t become a headache for others.
Now as for prohibiting firearms and explosive, it is a good initiative. In past, people have got injured and even died because of these stray bullets. Again why not get married or conduct any event in a decent manner?
