In a remarkable development within the Indian wedding sector, the WedTech startup VivaHit has emerged as a game-changer. Established in 2022 by Hemant Meharchandani and Aman Kumar, VivaHit is on a mission to revolutionize the entire wedding preparation and implementation process.
Drawing inspiration from his personal experience of organizing his wedding in 2019, VivaHit’s CEO and Co-founder, Meharchandani, identified an unmet need within the market—a dedicated tech solution for effective guest management. This often overlooked aspect in the WedTech space became the driving force behind the creation of the company.
While Indian weddings have traditionally been associated with extravagance in expenditures on jewelry and clothing, there is now a noticeable shift towards prioritizing the enhancement of the guest experience.
Meharchandani emphasizes that VivaHit is not in competition with matchmaking websites or service marketplaces. Instead, its primary objective is to address the prevalent guest management challenges in Indian weddings. The platform streamlines various tasks, including invitation distribution, RSVP tracking, and reminder notifications. All these tasks are made possible through a unified application accessible on both Google Play and the Apple App stores.
VivaHit offers a convenient way to organize events within the wedding, allowing users to create and send customized invitation cards for different functions. The app also enables users to upload guest lists and manage logistics such as vehicle and hotel room numbers. An AI-enabled photo scan feature ensures guests receive all their event photos seamlessly.
The vision for the startup goes beyond simple guest management. The platform aims to engage wedding guests from the moment invitations are sent out, facilitating pre-wedding activities and fostering interaction among attendees.
