Popular matrimonial and matchmaking site Shaadi.com recently launched ‘Weddings from Home’ amid the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. A lot of couples postponed their weddings when the lockdown was extended.
The first couple Avinash Bagri and Kirti Agrawal who decided to try weddings from home, were extremely thrilled with the idea. Wedding invites were sent with video call links and even a special backdrop for the day was designed to create the right atmosphere and setting for the ceremony.
Kirti Agrawal and Avinash Singh Bagri, both 31, had their ‘roka’ or pre-engagement ceremony in January 2019, but somehow, their wedding was delayed till the next year. Once they locked a date in April 2020, there was no way they were going to put it off further, says Gurgaon-based Bagri.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the couple had their virtual wedding on April 14, with their parents and a few friends in attendance, via video conferencing app Zoom and facilitated by Shaadi.com’s Wedding from Home initiative.
Innovation is definitely the key, when it comes to couples making their wedding dreams come true during the pandemic.
