Maintaining opulence with fewer guests
The big-ticket Indian wedding, which used to have an average of 1,000 guests at the reception, is now down to 300 guests. It is now mostly an inner-circle affair, with only close friends and family present. As a result, because there are fewer people attending, weddings may now be more immersive and opulent. The available budget can be used for high-end accommodation, enhanced food and beverage (F&B), or an ultra-luxurious vacation experience.
