WHY TWOW

Marriages are made in heaven but a lavish and unforgettable wedding celebration is surely brought to life on Earth. The ideation, planning, curation and several other stages require relevant expertise.

The big fat Indian Wedding has been jolted to a halt with looming uncertainty and a realm of challenges. With restrictions on on-ground events, exhibitions and inaccessibility to potential wedding partners creating the perfect wedding seems like a distant dream.

Today, virtual is no longer the new normal, instead it is an everyday affair. With conferences, town halls and R&R shows being flawlessly executed digitally, immersive virtual platforms seem to effectively bridge the communication gap between stakeholders. This paradigm shift led us to question-, “Why should the wedding space be any different?”, leading to the inception of The World of Weddings (TWOW). TWOW is our expressive solution to bridge the gap between partners and customers, it is all about Experience, Engage, Evolve to unlock opportunities.

Join us

Let’s celebrate together.
