Technology has taken over the world, and its power to simplify life is not something that can be disputed anymore. And now it is taking over the Big Fat Indian Wedding by storm, with services such as wedding websites, wedding invitations, gift registry, checklist, budget planner, guests apps and more becoming increasingly popular among millennial couples. Wedding Wishlist brings you some of the coolest online tools and services to use for your wedding that will help save both money and time!
- Wedding Website
This has become the fastest growing trend for Indian couples, and with good reason. A customised wedding website is a great way for couples to share their story and function details with guests. This is particularly important for Indian weddings, as the huge guest lists mean that more than half the guests don’t know the couples personally. With a wedding website, the couple can share the story of how they met and add photographs, which helps guests feel more connected to the occasion. It also acts as an in-depth invite with function details and RSVP functionality, saving the family endless calls to check on who’s coming. Further, it allows guests to leave fun messages for the couple in their guestbook, which the couple can cherish for years after. And the icing on this big, huge cake is that this entire service is free and customizable.
- Wedding Invitations
While the trend of e-invitations is not new, it has now come off age. From the super traditional to super fancy, all kinds of weddings have one thing in common—an e-invitation. They’re practical, they’re creative, they’re good for the environment and there is an endless variety to choose from. Video invitations capture the love story in a way that catches the interest of the guest and gives them the necessary information about the dates, venues, and functions. Alternatively, one can go for a classic e-invite that goes with the theme and colours of the wedding celebration. They can be in the form of a Save the Date card, or a multi-page invitation.
- Wedding Gift Registry
This online trend really took of in the latter half of 2018 when Bollywood stars like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra created one for their wedding. It is a way to make wedding gifting more meaningful and manageable for both the couple and their guests. A wedding gift registry allows the couple to create a list of the gifts they want for their wedding and share with guests. Guests can buy or contribute to any gift in this list. The idea is that it saves the guests the guesswork and running around, and it ensures the couple loves and uses every item they receive. Since all the gifts are delivered directly to the couple, it’s practical and waste-free for them and stress-free and hands-free for the guests.
- Indian Wedding Checklist
Wedding planning can be exhausting and complex. There is always a never-ending list of tasks and it can be impossible to keep track of them all. Wedding Wishlist’s checklist for Indian couples is the perfect tool to help you go through this journey without missing out on any task. It is the first checklist designed keeping Indian weddings in mind and keeps you on top of every relevant detail, from your mehendi artists and dhol walahs to the pooja ingredients!

You can sort it by time to the wedding, functions or priorities, making it your perfect companion till the big day!
- Budget Planner
Another signature aspect of Indian weddings is the alarmingly huge amounts of money spent and the complex matrix of who spends what. With the budget planner tools, managing and tracking finances as well as keeping a close watch on the budget becomes a reality. This intuitive tool tells the couple what ideas spends should be across different areas, helps them keep track of outstanding payments and becomes a place for the couple to save all their invoices.
