There is no denying that desi weddings are all about the grandeur and all things fancy. But given the current pandemic situation, thinking of having a big fat Indian wedding isn’t even an option. However, couples are making sure that they make their special day memorable. And they are doing all this by keeping it safe and stylish.
Meet Akshita Maheshwari and Raunak Singh Mohnot, who recently got married in an intimate wedding ceremony in Udaipur. They got rokafied in February and were planning to get married later this year, but thanks to coronavirus, they had to completely change their wedding plans.
With only two weeks to plan the shaadi, the couple along with their wedding planners, DreamzKrraft, did an amazing job and made sure that they followed all the hygiene standards. If you’re a bride-to-be and planning wedding in the middle of the pandemic, there's a lot that you can definitely bookmark for your intimate wedding ceremony. So, here’s all the inspo you need.
To start with, Akshita and Raunak kept the guest list to a minimum. While only close family members attended the wedding, over 300 guests were a part of the celebrations virtually.
Body temperature and the oxygen levels of the guests were checked on a daily basis while they were also provided with customised immunity kits.
The wedding venue had 12 hands-free sanitisation stations in place. And instead of hiring professional artists, the guests were provided with DIY mehendi kits which included customised face masks, a mehendi cone and a catalogue with easy mehendi designs. Isn’t that cool?
Yes, safety was their priority, but it didn’t stop them from having fun at their wedding. The guests were greeted at the gateway with some traditional Rajasthani folk dance and a few DIY activities were arranged to entertain them.
Take a look at the gorgeous pictures from the wedding:
Here’s a video of their roka ceremony that happened before the pandemic came into our lives. Take a look! It will definitely bring a smile to your face.
Kudos to the couple for pulling off such a beautiful ceremony, especially in these times! We wish them tons of love and happiness!
