Venue? Check. Menu? Check. Guest list? Check. Covid-19 safety? Check! From customised face masks to sanitiser bottles, this year, shaadis and parties are incomplete without a Covid Desk. Sagarika Kapoor, a Delhi-based stylist, who recently got married, had one such help desk placed at a wedding function. She says, “In these uncertain times, it comes across as a sweet gesture and shows we care about our guests’ safety.” Many wedding planners are replacing choodhi counters, to make space for Covid Desks. One such Delhi-based planner Sumathy Bachchan, adds, “Some of these masks are also colourthem­ed or designed on the basis of whose side you are from — bride or groom.” There’s also special emphasis on choosing the aromas. Chinmayi Jain, a Mumbaibase­d wedding and party planner says, “A client of mine wanted different fragrances of sanitisers. So, we got them custom-made. The idea was to make it experience oriented!”
