Indian Wedding Site was created to fulfill the need for a website dedicated to South Asian wedding planning in America. After struggling to find quality vendors and inspiration online for her own bi-coastal wedding, Sonia Kaur Kandhari launched IndianWeddingSite.com in 2004. Since then, Indian Wedding Site has made tremendous improvements to bring you the latest tools and ideas to assist you in planning your dream Indian wedding, and has expanded its global reach to Canada, India and Destination wedding locations.
