Touted to be a business worth 40 billion dollars (around Rs 2.5 lakh crores) growing at an explosive rate of 25-30 percent every year, weddings in India have undergone a huge change in terms of planning, rituals as well as fashion and budgets. While they have moved away from being just intimate family affairs adopting a more modern look, the bright shades of reds, music, heavy jewellery and bling attached to it continue to rule.
With the craze of destination weddings on the rise, Indians have now begun splurging on trips to exotic locales along with friends and families to make it a two in one – wedding plus holidays affair. No wonder, the industries related to the weddings such as fashion, beauty and fitness and photography too are benefiting from this rising trend.
