June 18, 2020 (IANSlife) This year has been taxing for our lovebirds - right from home sheltering and isolating from each other to the obvious delay in getting hitched. The ‘big fat weddings’ where family, relatives, and friends joyfully gather, enjoy the food, the celebrations have been put on hold, at least for now.
It is impossible to say for sure when we shall again see the wedding festivities that we are accustomed to. Interestingly, the couples are not defeated by a virus just yet and are making way for a new wave of holy matrimony! Yes, we are talking, of course, about virtual weddings! There has been an upsurge in the number of virtual weddings in the past three months and various wedding planners are now embracing the change by planning such intimate ceremonies. With most people still wary of travel and crowded places even though the lockdown has been eased in many parts of the country, couples are now planning to have virtual weddings right in their home.
Families are revamping their living rooms into ‘mandaps’, open dining spaces into intimate meals in the dining room and cocktail parties now require an in-house bar setup. This has resulted in an increasing demand for sofas including wing chairs, love seats, swings, and ottoman chairs apart from beds and mattresses.
This demand is expected to continue as more and more people will opt for more intimate events at home in the next few months. So, why not make our homes look at their very best for this very special occasion!
Flipkart's furniture experts suggest some products that are apt for the occasion, which will give your home an effortless yet grand-looking makeover.
