New Delhi :Bid adieu to the customary posed wedding photos, mandatory video-graphing of the ‘saat-phere’ and the cliched styles of wedding arrangements. For the quirky, social media active generation, Indian wedding means showing off the world the much-in-love-couple!
“This season, quirk is what is in!” says Anand Shahni, co-founder of Gurgaon based WedMeGood.
People no more want the photographers to tell them how to pose for a perfect wedding photograph or stand behind the bride and groom for a conventional picture.
“Candid photography is what people prefer nowadays. There are funky photo booths, props and some placards that even make the posed photographs look more fun-filled,” says Sanna Vohra CEO of online wedding portal, Indear.
In fact, pre-wedding videos have immensely grown in popularity. Grooms lifting their brides and bollywood-styled videos are in trend, says Vohra.
“Some even release trailers of their pre wedding videos, in case they don’t want to share the complete video with everyone,” she says.
Shahni says that our generation is the Instagram generation. There are common hashtags that friends and family use while sharing the wedding pictures on social networking sites.
Many are now switching to e-cards. They prefer to send these pre-wedding videos on WhatsApp as invites, he further says.
Wedding cards have also got a whole new look. It’s no more just an envelope and a card by a ‘shaadi card wala’ but personalization has made each card unique.
