With pandemic approaching towards an endemic state (at least that’s what we are feeling now), things are on the up. With a much lower risk of the transmission, life is slowly getting back on track, shops are open for a longer duration, meeting up with people is not really that scary anymore, and talking about celebrations and weddings, well, let’s just say, now you can at least have one.
Weddings are a huge affair, and why not? It is a once-in-a-lifetime thing (for many of us). Thus, it is supposed to be perfect, lavish, and memorable. We have been confined in our homes for the past year, forget about weddings, and meeting up with four friends was a life-threatening task. Those who couldn’t wait for all this to get over converted it into a small, mostly at-home wedding. But those who waited, good days are coming.
