The novel coronavirus has torn the idea of large scale events, and the 'big fat Indian wedding' to shreds. While the grand and extravagant wedding celebrations seem like a distant dream, intimate wedding with your near and dear ones is the new trend. Weddings may have been scaled down in size to prioritize safety requirements but that doesn't mean you can't have your fairytale fantasy of dressing up for the D-Day. The celebrations are probably not going to be as flamboyant as they were, but you can opt for a grand wedding ensemble or keep it understated.
