My friend said that a rich man should spend so much money over weddings and functions. Otherwise the accumulated money won't come out. How sensible is this? Should I hope for big fat weddings?
The amount you spend on a wedding shouldn't be related to your wealth, at least not directly. If you can afford a big fat Indian wedding, AND YOU ENJOY DOING IT FOR YOURSELVES AND GUESTS then of course do it. But you should never just "flex your muscles" because all the fancy dresses, the fireworks, the entertainment won't matter if the love is not genuinely felt in the evening.
