After helping find soul mates, now helps find wedding vendors

If finding a soul mate is a mammoth task for a lot of people, and then organising the wedding is an even bigger task. This is where steps in to rescue hapless couples and their families. The wedding portal not only serves as a platform for people to meet like-minded ones, but is now also venturing into helping people organise their big day.

With the new online directory service that it has just launched, offers information on 16,500 marriage service vendors in 40 different categories of products and services.

Said Anurag Gour, Group Manager, ShaadiTimes, “Organising a wedding can be tedious, difficult and time-consuming, with maximum time spent in identifying the right service providers for key services, like catering, mehendi, music, venue management, discreet enquiry service, etc.’s Shaadi Directory is aimed at reducing the hassles.”

Taking this a step further, also helps NRIs plan their weddings in India. The Shaadi Directory automatically senses the country from which the user is accessing the site and presents him with listings from that specific country as well.

Gour added, “The Shaadi Directory presents Indian marriage service providers a readymade gateway to tap the growing international market. With this free one-stop window, vendors can instantaneously take their business global. Currently, we have over 15,000 registered on the directory, and we have targeted to list 40,000-45,000 additional vendors by the year end.”

Through an inaugural offer, will provide free basic listing to vendors. Vendors would be charged for deluxe and premium listings at a later stage, though the rates would be lower in comparison to classified advertisements in newspapers, said a company release.
