Load Wedding is the story of Raja (Fahad Mustafa) who has loved Meeru (Mehwish Hayat) since they were children. But he could never get himself to confess his love for her because he knew that he couldn’t marry her until his elder sister Baby (Faiza Hasan) is married.
And that isn’t happening because Raja, being the head of the family after his father’s death, can’t get enough dowry to get a decent proposal.
The film also showcases the actual stress, pain and unnecessary hassle behind making a wedding happen in the first place.
