We are now living in a time where the more conscious and careful we are the better it is. Just like everything around us, the wedding scenario has also changed drastically. Post the lockdown, intimate gatherings a.k.a Small Skinny Indian Weddings have become the new big thing. While numerous couples love the spectacular wedding, which is all about rigorous planning about the gigantic guest list to invite people for their special day, these plans have shifted under the table for now.

Considering this, a simple approach to go about your wedding day currently is to plan a private wedding. Styl.Inc Wedding Stylists say "that there is something exceptional and unique about private weddings. Not only do they pose less stress and are super easy to plan but, apart from this, they also allow the couples and families to make their guests feel super special and well-attended. And they also fit well in budget.

"Take this as a sign and shift to a small and sweet wedding. Lesser people mean lesser formalities and hence, much less stress. Giving attention to detail is what is going to be the priority here. It should all be personalised as per the couple’s preferences. From the décor to the bar to the Food and Beverages to the clothes. Make every little detail as per yours and your close guests' likings and wishes."

Here are some outfit ideas by the stylists:

For an Intimate Wedding, you can focus more on what is more comfortable for you than what will shine out more. Again, lesser people means lesser drama with the clothes (not that you can’t go all out if you wish to, it’s your day!) Your designated wedding stylist will help you choose your perfect small wedding outfit. By weddings, we not only specialise in the grand ones but also understand the needs of a small affair. You could also make it more special by wearing the same colour bridal outfit, which you wore on the first day you two met, or have the date you fell in love with embossed. It’s all about the details.
