BY Garvita | 03 Sep, 2021 | 76 views | 3 min read

It has been over a year since we got used to the new normal & embraced the charm of Intimate celebrations! Honestly, when the brides started taking the intimate wedding route, we weren’t really expecting anything offbeat. But it filled our hearts with joy when we witnessed so many unique elements and fresh trends coming together.

Bollywood brides did not shy away from hopping into the ‘low-key’ bandwagon as well and ended up surprising everyone with private, heartwarming wedding pictures. Here are few popular names who tied the knot in a simple way, surrounded by only their closed ones.

Kajal Aggarwal's coronial Mumbai wedding boasted of simplicity and ethereal wedding outfits. "Planning a wedding entails so many moving parts and added to that the pandemic definitely was a challenge. However, we strictly followed covid protocols which meant we had to have a very small wedding, got all our guests tested, and created a bubble for everyone who was a part of our celebration." she wrote in one of her Instagram captions.

While Neha Dhupia entered a wedlock way before the pandemic hit us, she still kept it easy with a small Gurudwara wedding. The couple left everyone surprised when they posted about the wedding on social media. "There were only three functions - the Mehendi, Chooda, and the Wedding. The Mehendi and Chooda ceremonies were held at my home in Delhi. The highlight of the wedding was definitely when I was taking the pheras with him in the Gurudwara. With every phera, I felt like I’m coming closer to this!", Neha shared with us!

With celebrity weddings, generally, being synonymous with opulence these low-key celebrations definitely proved to be a whiff of fresh air. What are your thoughts about it?
