As we move into this new Covid19 era, if you are one of the many couples planning a smaller Desi wedding, here are some ideas to keep it fun and intimate!
Match Your Masks to Your Outfit: Masks are no fun, but in order for you and your guests to stay safe, we highly recommend them. If you are crafty, use one of your sleeves or extra cloth, or work with a local tailor to create masks that match your outfits! B anu designs and Etsy have pre-made wedding masks you can purchase. You'll find other face mask companies with beautiful masks to match your wedding lehenga or saree or for your guests on The Desi Bride.
Enter with a Beautiful Saree or Flower Sheet (aka Phoolon ki chadaar): If you choose to do a home wedding or a small venue, have your close family / friends hold the sheet as you enter. You can play around with the colors, embroidery, and borders of the sheet to match or contrast your look.
Personalized Wedding Favors: Now that you may have a little more time and maybe a smaller guest list, take the time to personalize your wedding favors. Ideas include giving your bridesmaids their favorite flowers, DIY photo coasters, and personalized keepsake table nameplates like from Little Things Favors below. Shaadiwish includes hand-painted candles, packs of flower seeds with a personalized note, and mehndi cones with candy or other Desi snacks like namkeen.
Find a Gorgeous Outdoor Venue: Outdoor venues work well to both social distance and give you and your guests a picturesque view. Check out our guide for top wedding venues for micro weddings and intimate weddings in Texas. Below, we've featured The Magnolia Terrace, which is an intimate and romantic garden in Frisco, TX.
