I'm pretty sure you've heard of the term 'social distancing' going around a lot. What is social distancing? It's basically a strategy to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. Even if you are symptom-free, there are chances that you may contract the virus by stepping out and being in contact with someone who does. The need of the hour is that people need to limit travel as much as possible, stay indoors and keep themselves far away from others.
In the midst of this if you had planned your wedding, whether a destination one or within the country, it would be a good idea to scale it down. The cases in India have risen to 125 as of now, and three people have even lost their life.
In a situation like this many people are opting for a small wedding function at home itself to limit the number of people collecting in a small area.
From flowers to DIY projects that your family can take up together, we've got some adorable ideas for your wedding decoration.
As desis we love our trusty genda phools and why shouldn't we- they look gorgeous. You can decorate the house with flowers and the beauty will automatically get enhanced and not to mention, the smell of the flowers is divine! Add some green foliage to it and you'll end up with something beautiful. You can even put it in different styles and not just in straight lines. Fill a vase with genda and there you have a stunning table centrepiece!
If you have a jhoola at home, decorating it with flowers and paper decorations is a great idea. It works well for the mehendi and haldi function and for the wedding it can replace the sofa and stage for the couple to sit at. Imagine the adorable pictures you'll get under this stunning decor piece.
Remember when we'd make tents with bedsheets and chairs and hide under there as kids? Well, why not bring some of that bachpan ka fun to the wedding. This tent with a canopy of leaves can be set up in the garden or the terrace and will act as the perfect photo-op corner. Don't forget to add the fairy lights though!
We all have cute trunks and vases in the house which are just lying around, get those out and paint them to your liking and in accordance with the colour theme. This is an activity you and your family can take up together cause it'll be a good bonding sesh before the shaadi too. If you have other decoration items like bird cages, they too can be used around the house. This is also a budget-friendly and environment-friendly way to go.
An old cycle can be used as a statement decoration item to bring in that desi swag to the shaadi. Spruce it up with flowers and see if it needs repainting cause it'll look stunning at the entrance of your house. It can also be used to hold up the wedding hashtag sign so that people can get pictures clicked with it.

Another decoration piece that you can count on to look gorgeous in all situations are lanterns. White and colourful ones together can be kept around the house or hung up on trees, put tea lights in them and your job is done. You can decorate the rest of the place with fairy lights, after all, shaadi ka ghar hai!
Another easy thing to do for a ghar ki shaadi is printing out placards for your guests. Keep them in a corner so people can use them to get pictures clicked. If you're a Bolly buff, then the movie title ones are a great option.
Apart from the decor, don't forget to keep hand sanitizers on every table and minimize the guest list as much as possible. You can always have a big fat function after the situation is in control!
