KOLKATA: Weddings that were postponed due to the pandemic are being planned now keeping the number of guests limited as per state guidelines. But, there’s a significant change that has come in.
Most of the couples and their immediate families have got themselves vaccinated and while sending out invites, they are requesting guests to get vaccinated.
Many have designed digital cards to include this request while some are even printing cards with the “statutory line” on vaccination saying that they are doing their bit to fight Covid. The earlier system of pre-nuptial get-togethers for mehendi and engagements have now been replaced by pre-wedding vaccination camps that wedding planners are organising for the invitees of the two families.
Jeweller Ranabir Paul and his fiancée Ankita Chanda will finally tie the knot on July 1, though the scale is much reduced now compared to their original plans. While sending out the invites they have requested invitees to get vaccinated. “It will be a low-key affair. We have already requested the invitees to get themselves vaccinated,” Ranabir said.
Rohit Gupta and Richa Bagrodia were supposed to get married in May but since Covid had peaked at that time, they postponed it. The wedding has finally been scheduled on July 2. “The family is requesting everyone to be vaccinated before attending the event. All drivers and even team of photographers will be vaccinated,” said Ritu Agarwal, the wedding planner.
The Wedding Company, one of the biggest wedding planners in the city, also said that many families have asked them to design invites keeping the vaccination clause intact, said Raj Jaria, a partner in the company.
