10 Ways To Make Your Intimate Mehndi Ceremony Safe and Entertaining

10 Ways To Make Your Intimate Mehndi Ceremony Safe and Entertaining

“All is fair in love and war”, even your mehndi function. Haan, thode changes karne padenge considering the current situation, but entertainment mai koi compromise nahi!

It’s true. You can still celebrate your long-awaited mehndi ceremony while keeping all the traditions intact just by following these simple tips and tricks.

1. Work On Your Guestlist

In other words, make sure you invite not more than 50 people to this close celebration. Look at this with an optimistic lens. You can finally invite just your closest bunch of family and friends and escape the guilt trip as well, all thanks to the government mandate. Now, isn’t that something all you millennials have been wanting in a long time?

2. Watch Out For Those Gate Crashers

We all know that an Indian wedding invitation card isn’t limited to the names mentioned on it. It’s like a free ticket to all those freeloaders. And that’s something you can’t afford keeping the various consequences in mind. So make sure you brief your guests, that Mr. & Mrs. means Mr. & Mrs. and no plus ones.

3. Home Sweet Home

As it’s rightly said, ‘there’s no place like home’, then why go elsewhere to celebrate your mehndi ceremony? If you can accommodate your guests in your personal compound or terrace, you should definitely consider doing that as you will have better control of the overall planning and hygiene. But if you’re unable to do so, make sure you shortlist a venue (preferably an outdoor space) that’s closer to your residence.

4. Monitor The Entrance At All Times

Assign a dedicated person to keep a constant eye on those who enter and to make sure all your guests have adhered to the protocol by wearing their masks. Also, make it a point to keep extra sanitizers as well as masks for your guests.

5. Say Goodbye To Those Helping Hands

Put on your creative hats and get going with your DIY decor. Why? Because limiting the number of unknown faces means limiting your risk. So say goodbye to your decor wale uncles and pull out your inhouse team to decorate the venue.

6. Inhouse Mehndi Artists

Make use of the talented lot in your family and put their skills to use. If you have any relative who can ace the mehndi art, you can always opt for that and once again reduce the exposure to an outsider. However, when it comes to the bride only a professional can do the trick. But again, make sure your mehndi artist follows all the protocols as she will be in close contact with the bride. Also, try and keep the mehndi designs simple to reduce your time period with the artist.

7. DJ Wale Babu Mera Ganna Chala Do

You got to bid adieu to yet another party, The Band Baja gang! But that’s no big deal, right? Because we all have that one music enthusiast in the family who knows it all. You just got to name the song of your choice and get grooving. Yet another way to distance yourself and be safe.

8. Go Digital

Any Indian function is incomplete without the exchange of gifts and love. And we’ve got a way to make this process contactless too. Request your guests to use digital wallets instead of envelopes. And pay your vendors using online payment applications. You can also use wedding wishlist sites and pass on your wishlist to your guests and get the gifts delivered to your doorstep. So there’s no contact, whatsoever!

9. F&B Safety Precautions

If you have numerous helping hands at home, then try and prepare the food indoors. Avoid including raw salads and fruits in your menu since they are uncooked. Also, refrain from using finger food, chaat or any such food item. Make use of disposable paper cups instead of glasses for your beverages.

10. Thorough Clean Up

Once everything is done, do not forget to sanitize your entire house and compound (in case you’ve had a home ceremony).
