Following our conversations on Sakeina Syed’s @nytimes article, South Asian College Students Are Fake Marrying for the Vibes. And, @tomezzzzz @buzzfeed article on a similar happening within the Nigerian community: These Twentysomethings Have Started Throwing Fake Weddings, it's safe to say the community has questions.
Versus us making assumptions, we wanted to hear from people who've organized similar events.
