“I did not print cards as it would have been a waste of money, designed one and sent by [sic] Whatsapp to relatives and friends,” the father of the groom told TOI. As a total relaxation on lockdown was announced on Saturday for the weekend, phone calls were hurriedly made to all relatives and friends, urging all those who could make it to the wedding, added the groom's father.

However, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has directed SpiceJet to lodge a complaint against those who did not abide by COVID-19 protocols. All the guests were standing close to each other, throwing aside all the COVID-19 norms, as clearly visible in the pictures circulated on social media.
