1. More Minimonies Or Intimate Weddings

While we’ve all dearly enjoyed the big fat Indian weddings with loud music and huge gatherings, intimate weddings are here to stay. Many couples including celebrities have adapted to the intimate and small wedding traditions. The pandemic gave us all a reality check and how important it is to share love and time with your dear ones instead of focusing on the noise. And the pandemic is far from over, minimonies are the way to make big moves.

3. E-Invites & Save-The-Dates!

Remember the days when you’d have to post an invitation to your guests that would cause unnecessary stress and delay? Neither do we! Ever since e-invites and virtual save-the-dates made their way into our lives, things have changed. Apart from saving money on stationery, printing and mailing by post, it has also become an easier and quicker way to send out invitations. Couples can simply create a personalized website for their guests to RSVP easily. No longer waiting for days/weeks to get your invitations or RSVPs anymore!

4. Themed Weddings

The welcome lunch/dinners and reception parties are the most fun since there aren’t any traditions to follow. And couples are loving a themed wedding party for their pre-wedding and post-wedding functions. Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao’s wedding function had an all-white ensemble party and a pyjama party. Some couples have had functions such as neon parties or disco nights as their pre-wedding themes. We’re loving this trend and can’t wait to see more of it in the near future.

6. More Destination Weddings

With the limited guest list and mandatory vaccinations, destination weddings will become more affordable and popular. Earlier people would stick to their home towns or cities to avoid the travelling expense in their wedding budget. But with more intimate weddings and vaccination reports, people are actually opting for destination weddings to have a safe and enjoyable wedding celebration. 

While international travel might be a long shot, there are a number of breathtaking hill stations in India that are perfect for destination weddings. Hill stations are perfect to get a break from the bustle of city life as well as for scenic views.

9. Safety First!

Health safety is of the utmost importance in today’s day and age. Especially with wedding celebrations, no one wants to put anyone at risk. So, a mandatory negative RT-PCR test and double vaccination report have become a thumb rule for the guests to attend the wedding. Installing sanitization stalls and using face masks have become quite the norm at weddings. People have become more aware of hygiene and health safety issues. 

10. Pastels All The Way

One thing is for sure and that’s the love of pastel wedding outfits. Couples are still loving the trend of muted pastel tones when it comes to their wedding outfits. Many couples are even choosing to wear matching and coordinated ensembles for their wedding.
