Luxury fashion influencer and bride Sonam Babani set out to do something exceptional and eco-conscious for her haldi ceremony. The main ingredient? Lemons!
As it turned out, her decision was also a nod to tradition. She shares, “In Indian culture, lemons are known to ward off evil. And this was felt throughout the event.” Plus, lemons are sustainable. “After the event, we sent them to our friends and family, who made jams from it and used it to make other treats. We also sent some to an NGO,” notes Babani, as she explains how the décor was recycled.
“We wanted to be thoughtful [while designing] our décor,” she avers, encouraging everyone to consider more sustainable choices for their wedding ceremonies.
