This was the covered dining area that was set up 20 feet from the house. It's small, as you can see, but they managed to get all the guests through in well-organized batches. Being a traditional Malayalee wedding, the food was vegetarian and well simple and tasty. A picture of the fare on offer in the next post.
This is what it's like in most weddings that take place at home. The blue plastic sheet for cover. The colored plastic chairs. The banana leaf plates. It's got a nice, homely feel to it, in my opinion.
