Since it’s 2020, all the work now is usually done online through computers and technology and even matchmaking is done using an algorithm where one can set preferences and look for a perfect match.
2. Online connectivity made easy
The online connectivity has helped in overcoming the barrier of distance and any other barrier that might occur during the wedding, related to gifts, vendors, contacting guests, etc. here is a list of few things that are now much easier than before -
(i) Gifts and Accessories
According to a BBC report, the Indian wedding industry is worth over $25 billion and also that it is seeing a 30% annual growth. And more than half of the entire 900 tons of gold is bought or consumed during the famous Indian wedding season.
So, the Internet and eCommerce platforms make it easy to buy and send gifts directly to those who can’t make it or those to whom need to be sent before a certain period of time.
(ii) Vendors and Photographer Finalisation
Now if you want to finalize the photographer that’s going to capture your wedding to the caterer who will be serving, everyone can be finalized through a video call. You don’t necessarily have to go to their shop or office to talk to them.
You can interview a bunch of different people without any problem. You just need to take out a day from your time and you can do all the work that takes at least a week, within one day.
