dowry” means any property or valuable security given or agreed to be given either directly or indirectly—
(a) by one party to a marriage to the other party to the marriage; or
(b) by the parent of either party to a marriage or by any other person, to either party to the marriage or to any other person,
at or before 1 [or any time after the marriage] 2 [in connection with the marriage of the said parties, 

it means any property given directly or indirectly as a consideration for the marriage of the parties . it is in fact a quid pro quo for the marriage itself.banquet expenses would not fall in definition of dowry
