Day weddings are not a new concept. People have been having the day or afternoon ceremonies for decades. Day weddings are always a different experience than the usual night weddings, which are conducted in the wedding halls and enclosed venues. Day weddings are usually conducted outdoors and provide natural sunlight for beautiful pictures and coverage of the couple and the event. Over the years, a lot of celebrities have also opted for day events and weddings. It has encouraged the trend further and has given people a different perspective of enjoying the weddings. Events like Mehndi and Walima can always be conducted in the evening by gathering well-wishers and relatives to celebrate but having Nikkah or Rukhsati in the day not only saves a lot of time, but breaks the monotony of the events, along with making it less tiring for everyone involved. One of the best aspects of a day wedding has to be gorgeous photoshoots and photographs of the couple.
