Don’t be ashamed if you don’t want to invite someone, it’s the best excuse you’ll ever have, to not include people who always get on your nerves. More importantly have honest conversations with your guests – ‘0’ pressure – so they can tell you honestly if they’ll come and you can make room in your guest list for those who are willing to take on the adventure!

Outdoors is the way to go when Indian Wedding Planning!

If you’re still looking for the perfect wedding venue, then go for something that’s spacious and private. A small resort, a garden, or even a homestay that’s got an outdoors area will be the best. It will give you so much space and helps to maintain social distance for guests.

E-invites are the best!

Safe and fastest way to let everyone know you’re tying the knot. Don’t forget to get the RSPVs done on time, so you can do your Indian wedding planning just fine!

Assign duties to your beauties

Give every member of the house some work that you know they’ll manage best! Include your friends as well to handle the wedding chores & make it easy for the family, so they can enjoy their time with you a little more.

To make it a little fun, make family pods, that’ll sit all the members from same family at the same pod, they’re going to be comfortable and safe too, without worrying about anything!

Sanitizing Stations

Okay, this is a must! You need to have sanitizing stations all over the wedding venue! This will be useful to maintain the hygiene and if done right, they can even look like a total delight!


Masks for the guests | Intimate indian wedding

Don’t mask your love, but ensure guests mask their face. Keep regular disposable masks handy for guests at stations as a reminder that they need to keep their guard on! To make it more instaworthy, you have personalized reusable masks made, that’ll guests can take with them. PS – To see some gorgeous masks inspirations for the bride, head here!

Catering with minimal staff and maximum precautions

No starter service rather only live stations – Barbeque would be best – fresh off the grill, so everyone knows its safe with toothpicks to keep it easy!

Afar at The Bar

Who doesn’t love an open bar? Since winter is coming, instead of serving cold beverages, go for hot cocktails and drinks – these are safe, and keep the chills away.

Band on a bandwagon for baraat

What’s a baraat without band baaja? to keep it safe ask the band wala’s to come in a separate mini truck, let them play dhol in the truck so the family can have maximum fun while maintaining social distance.

PS- just family in the baraat, and ask elders to stay inside their cars to be safe.

Avoid having a traditional stage

We love a good backdrop for a stage, but avoid having one to be safe. Instead make a photo app that’s quirky but designed for distancing.

TIP- you could do cute cutouts of your caricatures for guests to get snapped with 😛
