The more the weddings, the less the cost of a currency note,” said Patwa.Another shopkeeper in Madhupura market near Kalupur said often the customers are from Rajasthan, UP and Punjab. “Gujaratis don’t get such garlands much. They pay us the value of the garland plus making charge,” he said.”Rs 100 is the most commonly demanded but if the garland provides scope for accommodating other currencies, they will demand that too,” he added. “We need new notes for such garlands otherwise they will not hold together. We usually staple them.””We even make garlands of Rs 10. If someone is poor, and makes a garland worth Rs 1000, the smaller denomination notes will give the impression that there was too much money on display,” said another shopkeeper.A wedding planner said the currency garlands were not the norm for Gujarati weddings.”I have seen that the new generation stays away from such displays of wealth but it is the old generation that wants to continue it mostly in the name of tradition. It is not a common phenomenon in Gujarati weddings at least,” said Mitesh Mehta of Wedding Yatra.
