Looking for some escapism in 2021, as we wait for the world to slowly clamber its way out of a year-long lockdown? Netflix's new show The Big Day might be just the antidote. Season one of this Indian weddings documentary series takes a look behind the scenes at six different couples over three episodes—charting their courses from wedding planning to heartwarming interviews to emotionally-charged moments where tradition and the modern world collide.
From breathtaking venues to elaborate wedding apparel and adornment, The Big Day is a visual feast—and a warm reminder that once upon a time we used to gather in rooms full of family, friends, and loved ones to celebrate life. Take a look at the trailer, here.
The Big Day premiered on Netflix on Valentine's Day. Season one features two couples per episode, and covers a broad spectrum of weddings- and marriage-related issues, including ultra-opulent wedding productions, type-A brides, and same sex marriage.
