But with the surge in internet and smartphone penetration, the revolution in the wedding industry has already begun. If we look at the figures, Indian wedding industry is over Rs 100,000 crore and it is growing at 25 to 30 per cent annually. And our Indian entrepreneurs are not leaving and stone unturned to capture this huge opportunity.

Entrepreneurs have come up with their innovative startup making wedding digitized with platforms offering one-stop solution for the wedding related preparations and Weddingz.in is one such example.

Founded by Sandeep Lodha in 2015, Weddingz.in is a one-stop technology-enabled platform that simplifies the process of finding and booking services at the best prices.

They aim to make wedding planning a hassle-free experience for wedding families by allowing brides and grooms to get inspired from a large selection of wedding photos available.

"Customers are finding value in our wedding solutions and they have booked their wedding venues and other services through us. We have the largest list of vendors and also allow online booking of most of the services from our portal, making us a trusted partner in the wedding planning process", shared Sandeep Lodha, Founder and CEO, Weddingz.in.
