An engineer couple hopes to take the chaos out of Indian weddings by offering an app that lets you focus on nothing else but your love
Navam and Rishika
The pandemic threw wedding arrangements out of gear in the first few months of the nationwide lockdown. The Indian wedding industry estimated at $50 billion came to a halt. But it's now time to leave it all in the past. Navam Gupta and Rishika Agarwal's app, WedHaven, claims to make weddings fun by simplifying the tasks at hand, whether for the hosts, wedding planners or guests. "Rishika and my wedding in 2014 was chaotic. We had annoyed guests and stressed parents. Being engineers at heart, we realised that this unnecessary pattern of confusion must come to an end," Navam shares.
WedHaven expects you to go all digital and save up on paper invitations, but you can also create mini events with different groups. Further, with realtime updates on listed activities, you can keep all guests connected and feel their presence virtually.

The app, the founders say, saves time and reduces stress with the help of realtime announcements and reminders, taking care of security concerns by allowing only approved guests to join the wedding. "It's available on both iOS and Android. The upcoming features include having a personalised social platform exclusively for a wedding to tools that help micro manage various aspects of the big day, including transportation and hotel arrangement," Rishika says.
