Shivanand Lalwani and Vignesh Rammanoj, co-founders of WedStreamers, a new tech-based platform that facilitates multiple-format live streaming for weddings, offer insights. Pre-lockdown weddings were designed keeping in mind the on-ground guest experience, the décor, the food, the gifting, etc. However, post COVID-19, the digital wedding look and feel has been the major focus. The way a wedding is planned to suit its digital outlook is completely different. The couple and their family now have to plan what part of the wedding they want to have on video and streamed to their online guests. People are focusing less on décor and more on makeup, clothes, video bytes by close friends and family, digital toasts, wedding speeches.

1 I am 36 years old and have two children. I have lost my figure after pregnancies. Can I achieve the body I had before marriage? -Carey Dsouza, Mumbai Ans. Women lose their body shape after pregnancies and they need a combination of procedures coined “Mummy Makeover” by me to get the bod back into shape. Body Contouring or sculpting can certainly help you lose inches and have an appealing look.

HOW MUCH OF A HIT DID THE COUTURE BUSINESS EXPERIENCE DURING THE LOCKDOWN? Everything came to a halt for four months—factories, stores, studios. There were no weddings during the lockdown. So naturally, production and retail were both hugely impacted. It was a lean and mean period for the business. HAVE DIGITAL CONSULTATIONS ALTERED THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE WHEN IT COMES TO COUTURE? It depends on the sector and price point. When it comes to bridal couture, the in-person experience and consultation are essential and cannot be replaced. Whilst initial appointments are conducted via virtual tours and appointments, a bridal ensemble and couture call for fittings, customisation and touch and feel. So, the final selection can never be made without a store visit. Contactless delivery, digital sales, e-commerce work for prêt, or standard luxury products.…

We’re all tired of staying locked indoors, hoping to resume our regular routines as soon as we’re allowed to. But perhaps, we could look at things as glass half full? One thing we should be thankful about during this quarantine is that we have been gifted with all that extra time to indulge and do things for ourselves we wouldn’t have a hand a chance to, otherwise. Moreover, the upcoming months of festivities and weddings demand some self-care indulgence too. The celebrations, of course, will be different this year, but that shouldn’t dampen the spirits! However, the stress on the skin due to increased screen time and lesser interaction with nature makes it look dull, tired and lacklustre. Enter, a calming, hydrating and skin-loving face mask. Self-care is important, and face masks…
