Answer

(Fatwa: 433/D=76/File-D=1433)

Get the book “Islami Shadi” from the market and follow the instructions of the book in setting your programme. It is mentioned in hadith that the most blessed nikah is one which carries less expenses.
It is better if more people attend the ceremony of nikah, that is why it is sunnah to hold nikah in the mosque.
اعلنوا هذا النكاح واجعلوه في المساجد
Whereas gathering more people in the name of barat or invitations from girl side to many people creates causes many evils and problems. You should avoid it. Just two or three people should go with the boy and do nikah in mosque and get the bride home. And the next day (after rukhsati up to three days) the boy should arrange walimah whichshould have no pomp and show. It is enough if you avoid rituals and unfair things.
