Some people say it is not permissible to eat at the girls reception food while you can eat at the walima. Please comment.
Walima is arranged by bridegroom, it is sunnah. There is no proof of walima from bride. However, if the family of bride invites, along with the bridegroom family, their relatives and neighbours to a feast, without following any custom and without intention of walima, then there is no wrong in it and it is allowable.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
