Paradigm Shift – Wise Wedding and Gifting Concepts
In the Golden Olden days, marriages were predominantly need-based – arranged (by parents) where the bride and the groom just give their consent (sometimes namesake) to their parents; marriages were formal and strict with rituals while ensuring the groom’s side is well taken care of and no displeasure is created by any chance.

In the Platinum Present days, marriages are predominantly choice-based – where the partners carefully choose each other while the broad-minded parents endorse and conduct the wedding as per their children’s preference. The bride and the Groom make a conscious decision and are sure about what they are getting into and how they would like to live.
Weddings in India, deep-rooted in rich cultural heritage have manifested in different styles to endure through the changing social landscape. They have transcended through sands of time to conform to the changing context and purpose of Marriage. Theme weddings are catching up in India where the bride and the groom make the occasion most memorable and special by choosing distinct themes they desire.
As Indian weddings are evolving with time, wedding gifts for the couple and return gifts turn to be meaningful treasures of love and care. Need for thoughtful, useful and relevant gifts meant for newlyweds cannot be underscored. These trends embrace upon novel gifting concept, ‘Wedding Wishlist‘ ‘which simplifies the gifting process and amplifies the gifting experience‘ making the couple feel sensibly gifted. Through Wedding Wishlist, prospective couples can create their personal wedding gift registry choosing a range of products and exciting experiences that appeal to them and share their registry with family, friends and loved ones, who pick and choose gifts that they wish to present to the couple. For the prospective couple, it’s as simple as ‘Create’, ‘Share’ and ‘Receive’.
Prospective couples prepare their wishlist which transforms into gifts from their near and dear ones through Wedding Wishlist.Unsolicited gifts will become extinct and Wedding Wishlist encourages prospective couples to choose their gifts and shares their personal registry with their near and dear ones; therefore receiving the gifts they wished for. This concept of gifting giving and gift receiving will be simplified through wedding wishlist.
Thanks to the world wide web, the 3Gs and 4Gs( Maybe G stands for God in this wedding context!) which makes it all a “Click-away”.
