Last year the big fat Indian wedding underwent a major change and ushered in a new era of small intimate weddings. Even with a lot of restrictions imposed, love conquered and we saw a lot of cute weddings in 2020. The face of Indian weddings changed from grand 500 people weddings to 50 people weddings,from extravagant wedding decor to home backyard decor, from luxurious wedding favors to DIY wedding favors and from grand wedding feast to home cooked wedding food. This year we welcomed masks and sanitizers to our wedding world and from a necessity they also turned into a fashion statement. All of the lockdown weddings were special in their own way.
