The Big Day on Netflix features heartwarming interviews and a dazzling immersion into the world of some of India's most elaborate weddings

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.
