Whether you’re eloping and just inviting two witnesses or planning a full-on great Indian wedding with a hundred guests, weddings are always stressful. And on top of planning this milestone day to perfection, we’re currently in the middle of a global pandemic, which is not ideal, to say the least.
If your wedding was scheduled anytime after March this year, chances are it was probably postponed. But that doesn’t mean you cannot get married this year! If you’re determined to say ‘I Do’, then nothing should stop you from getting hitched. An intimate wedding sounds extremely exclusive, and who doesn’t want that?
You may have to settle with a smaller venue and get ruthless with the guest list ( a great opportunity to cut off any annoying relatives), but you can still have a magical wedding during these unprecedented times. Just make sure you’re prepared with these quarantine wedding essentials.
Couture Face Masks
Who would have thought that face masks will end up becoming the most sought after accessories of 2020? But here we are. Ditch the boring surgical masks, and get some exclusive masks designed for the wedding. You can even gift masks as a cheeky party favour.
Well-fitted & Comfortable Shapewear
We all are guilty of snacking a lil’ extra during quarantine, what else is there to do? But if you’ve decided to go through with the wedding at the last-minute, well-fitted shapewear will be a lifesaver. And even if you’re in relatively good shape, the right shapewear will give you a much-needed boost of confidence.
A Talented Videography Company
Since a lot of people won’t be able to attend your wedding, you shouldn’t skimp out on hiring a talented videography company for recording and producing the wedding video. Furthermore, you can broadcast the wedding with a live stream! So find a company that can do both.
You must get the best internet connection there is to ensure your wedding live-stream isn’t interrupted.
Buffets have long been a staple at Indian weddings, but not this year. No one wants to touch anything that’s touched by others. So for everyone’s safety, you should opt for pre-packaged meals for your wedding.
Get a Projector
If you’re planning to live-stream your wedding for all your friends and family who aren’t attending, there’s a way you can feel they are actually present in person. How about setting up a projector so you can see the lovely faces of your loved ones while tying the knot?
Understandably, this isn’t remotely close to what anyone would envision for their big day. That being said, at the end of the day, it’s you and your partner starting your forever together. When you think about it, you really don’t need many people to make that happen. And once things finally start looking up, you can certainly throw a huge party for your friends and family!
