However, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. During these days of social distancing, some couples have found a novel way of getting their wish fulfilled. They have chosen to go digital or online to take their wedding vows and get married. According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Preet Singh, a 29-year-old Merchant Navy Officer, and his fiance Neet Kaur were unstoppable. The duo, who had been planning their wedding for six months, didn’t let the lockdown dampen their spirit. The big fat Indian wedding was scheduled for April 4. Preet and Neet did get married but with a slight change of plan. There was no band, baaja and baraat or a big wedding buffet. They got married online and their family members and friends logged in from different corners of the world to bless the newly-weds!
