Salamun alaikum,

Please can someone help me understand if the following will make a marriage invalid or not:

1.If both the bride and groom do not attend the wedding.

2.If the dowry is spent by the brides family and not the bride herself.

From my studies:

Re: 1)
having a wedding is not necessary as per Quran, ergo, attending it is not necessary

Re: 2)
if the bride consents to this then that is fine. The dower is for the bride to do as she pleases.
