I am curious to know whether waalima and nikkah can be done on same day? I have heard that it can be done as long as the contract has been signed. 
I’ve also heard that waalima is followed by consummation of marriage, however, I’m a nervous fella and would like to get to know my wife before engaging in intimate relations. I imagine this will take me many weeks/months to build up the courage. 
Most of all, I’d like to save money – so 1 day for both events would be optimal. I am hoping the council can provide me some advice!
