Mywedhelper tackling booming South Asian wedding industry

Weddings are one of the most stressful events to plan in someone’s life; between choosing the perfect flowers and seating guests, it can be tough to find vendors that fit both budget and taste.

But Neeti Passi, one of the startup founders pitching on The Disruptors this week, hopes her Mywedhelper platform will help. Inspired by her own wedding planning struggle, Mywedhelper targets couples that are planning a South Asian wedding and are looking for trusted vendors in their community.

“Our goal is to revolutionize the way events are planned. Users come online, answer a couple of questions that help us categorize what their needs are, and then on the back end we’re connecting them to their own curated list of vendors based on their location, budget, and wedding style,” said Mywedhelper founder Passi. “We want anyone to plan an event and have the ability to find the right vendors to stay on track and on budget so they can manage anything from the touch of their tablet or their phone.”

Co-host Amber Kanwar, who is currently engaged and planning her wedding, was excited about the platform. “We need something like this, especially geared towards the South Asian community!” said Kanwar. “Most brides, we all go to theknot.com, but as a South Asian, there’s nothing for me.”

Kanwar said the platform would benefit from having an Uber-style rating system and continuing to secure more vendors on the platform.
