Keeping love alive in the midst of a pandemic is a huge feat and the people helping celebrate this love in the form of a wedding are even more obliged to ensure that enough precautions are being undertaken.
The latter half of the year in India is always abuzz with the sounds of the wedding shehnai as the wedding season kicks in. However, the COVID 19 pandemic has inhibited the chance to throw a much loved big, fat Indian wedding. While the bride and the groom may not be able to invite a large crowd, they can still make the most of it by keeping it simple with close family and friends. If you are partaking in the celebrations as an attendee then you too need to be mindful of the new normal.
Here are 5 things you must keep in mind if you are attending a wedding soon.
1. Be a good guest
As people are drastically reducing the number of guests being invited to wedding functions, if you are one of the lucky ones then you have been carefully picked to join in this private affair. Therefore, be a good guest- wear a mask, wear gloves, sanitize and wash your hands as often as you can to avoid the contamination and spread of the disease. If your temperature is being checked before you enter, be patient as this is crucial.
2. Give a thoughtful present
Nothing screams that you are happy for the lovely couple as much as a well thought out personalised gift. While gifting options are aplenty, you can always go the extra mile by adding a touch of personalisation. These gift boxes are apt as they have been specially curated for couples. For the couple who is adventurous and loves to travel, you can choose a Couple Travel Wallet Gift Box that will keep all their travel essentials safe and help them enjoy their numerous trips freely.
Alternatively, if the couple has varying tastes and preferences, you can still customise products for them and make your own gift box with a riot of different stylish accessories to add to their wardrobe and work desks from our collection. What’s more, these are vegan leather accessories and you can spend on them guilt free!
3. Maintain wedding etiquette
Try to be on time and be respectful of the present situation. While we may all be busy reminiscing about the good old days or the coulda, woulda, shoulda scenarios of previous weddings, this year has been different and prompted the bride and groom to make difficult decisions. Just try to enjoy the moment as much as you can!
4. Stay stylish
We are well aware that everyone has gotten too comfortable this year, working from home or lounging about in their comfiest sweatpants or pyjamas. But a wedding calls for some dressing up. So get rid of your loungewear and dress up! Lucky for you, we have done our best to ensure that you need to put in minimal effort with these curated accessories.
Our well crafted Cufflinks serve as the best accessories to liven up your whole ensemble. They bring together the outfit and men should definitely embrace this fashion statement. We also have pocket squares that will smarten up your blazer or suit and complete the look, if you don’t want to go for the conventional tie.
5. Maintain a safe distance
Lastly, while you may be over excited to see your friends and family after a long time, do not rush to hug or kiss them. Maintain a safe distance from all guests and try to minimise contact so as to avoid spreading the disease. We could all use a warm hug or two, but a gathering can serve as a petri dish for contamination so it is best to avoid touching too many people to be cautious.
As the wedding party size decreases and weddings get leaner, it is of utmost priority to make the nuptials as safe as possible- for the other guests as well as yourself. But don’t forget to put on your best attire, accessorize right and enjoy yourself!
