"Each wedding has a personality of its own."
Valentine’s Day is approaching, and to mark the occasion, Condé Nast India is releasing a new Netflix show, The Big Day.
The Big Day is a two-part collection docu-series consisting of three episodes, exploring the big fat Indian wedding, a multibillion-pound industry.
It will start streaming on Netflix from February 14, 2021.
The producers have chosen six different couples, and their weddings could not be more diverse.
A wedding planner in the trailer says:
“One of the trademarks of the modern Indian wedding is that they’re becoming very personal.
“Each wedding has a personality of its own.”
The series will also show progressive partnerships as well as people who met through traditional matchmaking that ultimately found love.
With independence being a priority, the docu-series will delve deeper into how love and weddings in India are being redefined.
The Big Day is going to showcase luxurious settings, beautiful clothes and wonderful wedding themes, with couples talking about creating their happily ever after.
In addition to the luxury weddings, there will be plenty of family drama, personal struggles, triumphs and much more.
The trailer of the first season of The Big Day was released on Monday, February 8, 2021, and it is a must-watch!
It features several moments of all the weddings, showing several people mentioning Indian weddings for the crazy, extravagant experience that they are.
Netflix also shared the trailer on their social media account with the caption “Any of you got a baraat we can dance in?”
Mumbai-based celebrity makeup artist Daniel Bauer, who got married in 2019 to partner Tyrone Braganza, will also be featured in this special wedding series.
However, this is not the first series to offer us an insight into the Indian wedding industry.
Indian Matchmaking is another wedding-themed Netflix series that inspired conversations and memes on social media, dividing the audience.
It was an eight-part docu-series featuring elite Indian matchmaker Sima Taparia trying to find suitable matches for her wealthy clients across India and the US.
Claiming to be Mumbai’s top matchmaker, Taparia said:
“Matches are made in heaven, and God has given me the job to make it successful on Earth.
“I speak to the girl or the boy and assess their nature.
“I visit their homes to see their lifestyle, I ask them for their criteria and preferences.”
Indian Matchmaking caused much outrage, due to casteist remarks, misogyny and colourism.
