An Indian wedding is truly a grand event, like a cocktail of everything traditional and cultural mixed together. And the best part is, different flavours of this desi cocktail can be enjoyed in different parts of the country. From the mukut-dhari Bengali bride with a hint of paan to the Telugu basket-bride, every color of Incredible India can be seen in these nuptial ceremonies. And guess what, foreigners are more than interested to attend these grand affairs, but sadly, they are rarely in the guest list of these Desi weddings.
But wait, just like foreigners want to witness an Indian wedding, we too, if given chance, would like to have a few exotic guests at our wedding. This will definitely make a wedding more memorable. But as much as you want it, there are high chances that you might not be friends with any American or say Lebanese citizen, and therefore, you definitely have no foreigners to invite to your wedding. But what if we tell you that now a company will provide these exotic guests to you, and you will get paid to host them! Well, this best of both worlds deal sounds perfect to me. And it’s definitely better than tried, tested and failed random ‘Nigerian mail’ invites.

A new start-up called Join My Wedding is offering you the opportunity to sell the tickets of your wedding to foreign tourists. The brand that identifies itself as ‘the ultimate cultural immersion’ program, has a very simple procedure through which Indian couples can ‘invite’ foreign guests to their wedding. All that couples have to do is, register themselves on the site with the details of their wedding date and venue, and interested tourists can buy tickets for their wedding with a simple click. Sounds easy, right?
The hyperactive peeps from the start-up make sure that the foreign guests interact with the marrying couple beforehand, so that they can learn about which customs to respect, what attire to wear, and other tinsy winsy deets.

So what are you waiting for? If you are about to get married anytime soon, go and register yourself on their site, and you might be able to host foreigner guests at your wedding while earning some cash! Seems like a good deal to me. But hey, don’t have second thoughts about your wedding if those guests turn out to be way more beautiful than your own bride. Just kidding!
