The recent times of COVID-19 have made weddings over virtual meeting the new normal. A lot of couples couldn’t postpone their marriage to a later date. Hence, they decided to opt for a wedding with only family members in attendance. However, how fun are weddings without funny banter from friends, especially when it comes to Indian marriages.
To make sure that their friends do not miss out on details of their wedding without being physically present, a lot of people are ending up having virtual weddings over Zoom calls.
