Wedding unending: How knot to go overboard with Indian shaadis

Sep 01, 2023 04:12 PM IST

The Indian wedding is bigger and fatter than ever. It doesn’t have to be. But who’s gonna tell their folks?

Looks like the Indian wedding has gained back all the calories it shed in the pandemic. It’s big and fat once again. Delayed engagement parties have made up for lost time with extra frills. Matches were fixed after it finally became safe to go out again. In November and December 2022 alone, Indians spent 3.75 lakh crore on weddings. Hosts and guests attended so many rokas, roces, haldis, hennas, sangeets, bachelor parties, nuptials, nikaahs, destination receptions, and chauthis, it was anyone could see on Instagram.
