Madurai: The pandemic, (hopefully!, a once-in-a-lifetime event) has revamped the spectre of weddings and one change, among others, is perhaps how couples receive gifts from their loved ones on the special days.

While many couples are accepting physical gifts and cash gifts from their guests, some have switched to digital wallets to avoid any physical contact. In one such case a Madurai couple moved to the digital landscape for accepting gifts.

The family printed QR code of Google Pay and PhonePe on wedding invites, so that loved ones can transfer gift cash without any physical contact or personal touch. The money would be transferred to the bank account without worrying about envelopes.

“About 30 persons had used the facility and gave cash as their wedding present,” T.J.Jeyanthi, mother of the bride, who runs the Janani Beauty Parlour in Madurai, told IANS.

“This is the first time such a thing has been attempted in our family,” she added.

The wedding, which took place on Sunday, has gone viral for its ingenuine and intriguing ways.

“I have been getting many calls on this. Similarly, my brother and others in the family have been getting lots of calls since Monday morning,” Jeyanthi remarked.
