Event mangers play an important role in any celebration. There’s a lot to think about when planning your big day, no matter where your wedding date falls in the calendar. But what if it happens to be falling amid coronavirus pandemic? Flummoxed would-be brides and grooms are turning to event managers who are coming up with different concepts to make the day special despite the crisis.

Gone are the days of calling everyone we know to marriages, birthdays and family functions. A 200-plus guest list has been shortened to a 50-plus one, and event managers are thinking up new ideas that take in all the considerations of the families and still make it a grand affair. Actor Nikhil’s wedding was the talk of the town during the pandemic.

The wedding took place at his farmhouse abiding by the safety measures. The event was organised by Ekaa custom décor. “We were particular about everything. We all shared our choices as did Nikhil with the event mangers. We are very happy with the whole setup. Everything was done in a proper way,” says Amar Yadav, Nikhil’s brother-in-law.

For those who earn revenue organising events, it’s going to be a challenging year. Posala Sumanth from Always Events says, “I have been in this event management for five years. Due to the pandemic, we had to come out with different concepts pretty quickly.

We have also introduced a new concept called ‘marriage in one and- a-half lakh’, where we provide N95 mask and sanitisers for the wedding guest apart from the décor, e-invitation cards, photo booth, thermal screening and cuddle curtains for greetings, etc.” Narsimha Swamy Vuppala from Parinaya Events has become very particular about the kind of events they are doing now.

“We ask the clients their requirements and work according to that. We first sanitise the place and then work accordingly. Most clients now want to do functions and gatherings on their terrace,” says Narsimha Swamy Vuppala. One could say that there is a return to old style of weddings which were simple and full of heart.
