Madurai Couple Had The Brilliant Idea Of Adding QR Codes To Wedding Invitation So Guests Could Transfer Gift Money!
Saying that 2020 has changed a lot of things for us is an understatement. Our lives were completely overturned and we are only now trying to piece it back together. However, some aspects have been affected more than others. Weddings, for instance. From having 1000 attendees, people were forced to make cardboard cutouts of their guests and put them up in their mandaps due to pandemic restrictions. Oh yeah, this really happened. Of course, virtual weddings and drive-through weddings became a trend. Although, this couple from Madurai took it to a whole new level when they printed QR codes on their wedding invitations so that the guests who couldn’t attend could transfer the cash gifts into their accounts. We love this idea. Relatives, are y’all listening? There’s no skimping now.
This Madurai family broke the concept of quarantine weddings wide open. They printed QR codes for Google Pay and PhonePe on their invitations. This was done for all those people who weren’t able to attend the ceremony but wanted to give money to the bride. Move aside flimsy envelopes of cash, it’s the digital era now.

T.J.Jeyanthi, mother of the bride told IANS, “About 30 persons had used the facility and gave cash as their wedding present. This is the first time such a thing has been attempted in our family.”
Needless to say, the invitations went viral. Whoever is the brains behind this ingenious idea is brilliant. It’s extremely creative to add QR codes to the invite and I wouldn’t be surprised if it became a common occurrence now. I know I am definitely doing this at my wedding even if happens after the pandemic is over.
I am really enjoying how this pandemic is forcing people to get creative when it comes to weddings!
