Weddings anywhere are a big deal but in India they assume biblical proportions. The complex customs, traditions and the rituals make Indian weddings unique in the world. And the fact that the traditions vary from community to community make the weddings even more fascinating to an outsider. As most of you are probably aware, traditional Indian weddings can extend to three or four days. The sangeet ceremony, mehandi and other rituals are special and somewhat curious for an outsider. Weddings are the perfect opportunity to experience the culture of a place. Now, with JoinMyWedding.com, tourists interested in the Big Fat Indian Wedding will be able to attend the function for a small fee.

JoinMyWedding.com is an Australian startup co-founded by entrepreneur Orsi Parkanyi along with Mumbai-based brand and marketing consultant Pallavi Savant and Hungary-based strategy consultant Márti Matécsa. Parkanyi got the idea to start such a website after she attended a South Indian wedding. She was fascinated by the hospitality, accessories, sarees, spicy food and the ceremony. However, her friend couldnt attend the wedding as she had no invite. Parkanyi wanted to open up Indian wedding to the world.
The website, which was launched a month ago, let you purchase a ticket to attend an Indian wedding. The cost of a ticket is upward of $300 or approximately Rs 20,000 and it includes meals, accommodation and access to three days of wedding events. Couples can enlist their weddings on the website and sell tickets for the same. Presently, a dozen weddings have been listed. For each ticket sale, 15 per cent commission is kept by Joinmywedding.com as fee. The site also offers wedding bookings in Turkey, Hungary and Russia. A family member will be nominated by each couple who will guide the tourist and explain all the rituals and events.
