Pandemic Weddings: Some weddings held during the COVID-19 pandemic made headlines for the wrong reasons.

A couple from Tamil Nadu have now gone viral, for choosing to get married on an airplane. Now they and their families might face action for flouting COVID-19 norms.

In a video that has gone viral, the plane can be seen packed with people who are wearing no masks, and following no social distancing. Infact, a spokesperson from the SpiceJet airline was reported saying that the couple and all their guests were briefed about following all the COVID-19 protocols on flight.

Here are some facepalm moments from Pandemic weddings:

COVID-19 Positive Bride In PPE Kit

A couple in Rajasthan wore PPE kits during their wedding. The day before the wedding, the wife tested positive for COVID-19, so the couple and their families had to make some changes in their wedding. The couple then decided to adorn PPE kits, and follow all the social distancing norms. However, their wedding got mixed reactions from netizens, as people wondered, why couldn’t anyone wait for the woman to get well.

BMC Had To Crash

In April this year, the authorities from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) raided a posh wedding in Mumbai. Over 150 people were present in the ceremony, and the wedding organiser was fined Rs 50,000 for breaching COVID-19 norms. This happened at a time when the Maharashtra government had just extended the lockdown in Maharashtra till May 15.

Celebrity Moment 

Sugandha Mishra and Sanket Bhosale were booked for not following the COVID-19 protocols during their wedding. A case against them was registered under the Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Disaster Management Act.

One With Goa CM’s Dance Performance

Chandrakant Kalvekar, the deputy CM of Goa was seen dancing during a wedding reception. Very few people were seen wearing masks, and didn’t follow any social distancing. However, he later issued a statement saying that the ceremony was confined only to his relatives, and that only 70 people were invited.
