Every dark cloud has a silver lining! So here’s a glimmer of hope for all the couples who dreamt of getting married in 2020. While this COVID 19 had us locked at home, nature started resurrecting, it has brought families closer, love found new ways of expression, and weddings have found a new meaning altogether! Now that unlock 1.0 is happening all over India, one can have a small wedding following all the safety and social distancing guidelines. That’s good news, right? So why so serious faces, folks? Let’s give you a sneak peek into what safety guidelines to follow in different cities across India to have an intimate wedding ceremony full of fun.

This unwelcomed pandemic has indeed taken a lot from us. We have been stuck in our homes for a long time now, and it feels like forever. It has been heartbreaking for the couple, who has their most significant day planned, in the most gorgeous way possible. Weddings have been dramatically downsized, postponed, or canceled. But, Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho … to puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai.” That stands true for love even in the times of Coronavirus. We all know that weddings are meant to be special, and this uncertain COVID 19 has snatched that joy and excitement from it. However, during times of uncertainty, there are couples, who still are certain about one thing, and that is to embark on the journey of their everlasting love, no matter what.

Though weddings across the globe have been put on hold, this has resulted in the “new normal”, and that is small and intimate weddings in the post-pandemic world.

We are here to help you plan one such small wedding ceremony. We have done hardcore research, and we have managed to compile a few tips and resources to help you pull off a successful event during these times.

1. Going virtual is the key:

From seeking inspiration online to taking your wedding online is the new trend. As you cannot go around the city looking for your wedding couture to every other quintessential element, you can browse and order online with the utmost safety. Another part of going online is to host your wedding virtually for all the guests, you can not include on your guest list.

2. Minimize your Guest List:

The Government of India has laid down some guidelines to follow, one of which is that only a gathering of a maximum of 50 people, is allowed for the wedding. So, you can plan out a small elegant wedding with only your close family members, while others can attend your rituals virtually. You also have to exclude people from containment zones as per the official guidelines.

3. Include Gloves and Masks:

We all know that wearing a face mask at all times is compulsory, so why not take it a notch higher and add it to your wedding theme. As we are coming across a lot of weddings these days with the couples wearing masks and gloves, matching their outfits, so that can surely be incorporated to increase safety as well as style to your big day.

4. Sanitizing Arrangements:

As we set up a selfie corner or a photo booth, we can also set up a sanitization corner. For an impeccable hygiene standard, you need to place sanitizers and hand napkins at every point. You should keep a check on arranging ample of it, right from the entry point to the sitting area to the dining area as well, that will give a sense of security to your guests. It will also reduce the overcrowding of washrooms.

5. Playing with the Food Buffet:

Most of the Indian weddings plans for a lavish buffet to impress their guests, but as COVID 19 has welcomed new trends for having a small wedding, you can skip the buffet style and arrange for a server to serve the wedding feast to your guests, complying with the safety measures and physical distancing.
