Searching for your next binge-worthy show to watch during what feels like a never-ending pandemic? Look no further: The Big Day is just the escapism we all need right now.

Multi-billion Dollar Industry

Over-The-Top Settings

Focusing on six extravagant Indian weddings that take place across the globe in a pre-COVID world, the trailer, which was released on Monday, is a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors, florals, over-the-top settings, and one-of-a-kind bridal looks, all dream Pinterest board-worthy. The show, which is divided into two 'collections' of three episodes, the first set premiering on Valentine’s Day, shines a spotlight on the creatives and vendors who make putting together a next-level extravaganza possible, and gives the opportunity for the couples to share what's most important to them along the way — whether it’s planning a truly sustainable wedding, or a desire to buck tradition. Count on love, courtship, personal struggles, and a dash of family drama taking center stage as these couples create their version of happily ever after.
