As we all know, the pandemic has changed the way weddings take place. With no chances left for a big fat Indian wedding, people are coming up with new ways to make such as occasion as merry and enjoyable as they can. As online weddings have become a new trend, where guests can witness the ceremony via live stream, many raised an important question, “Khane ka kya hoga?”
That’s right. Is a wedding even a wedding without the food? So one Tamil family arranged for the ‘Kalyana Sappadu’ or wedding meal to be delivered to the guests at their doorstep!
What the guests received were 4 such colourful bags and banana leaves.
Each of these bags had 4 tiffin carriers and there were a total of 12 dishes packed inside them. They also provided the guests with instructions regarding where to place each item on the banana leaf.
And there it is! One can enjoy the wedding food while witnessing the wedding online.
A Twitter user shared the new trend online:

People online loved this idea and thought it was the best way to enjoy a wedding amidst a pandemic. Some, however, were sad that they couldn’t gatecrash weddings any longer!

Yes everyone could eat together and at a given time, open the packs and be present via zoom or similar app ,with some festive music playing in the background .’Sagan’ could be transferred to the bank account indicated on the invitation .The times we live in. Flavourless !

3rd pic is superb. What each can contains & how to plate the banana leaf. Outstanding idea for a wedding feast business.

So smart of the caterers and both the families to think of this system.
After all most of us used to attend weddings mainly for the kalyana sappadu😉 https://t.co/whP0rhgUru

Kudos to the ones who came up with this idea. Innumerable catering services have suffered financially because of the pandemic. We hope such new ideas will help them revive their businesses.
