We don’t know if “marriages are made in heaven” but one thing we know for sure is that heavenly weddings are possible! 🙂
Manipuri weddings is an initiative by a group of wedding enthusiast who can’t stop talking about weddings (even on off-seasons)! We enjoy the painstaking process of planning or setting up a grand wedding! Nevertheless, the people at ManipuriWedding understand the many difficulties and the dramas that one has to go through while planning a wedding. It is tedious, time-consuming and comes with a lot of stress. And we intend to make that process a little less tedious, a tad more organise and a lot more fun!
What do we do?
With the ever expanding wedding market, we are bombarded with a lot of choices. Hundreds of Photographers, Decorators, Wedding Planners, Tent-house, Bakers, Caterers, Jewelers, Designers, etc are thrown at us by well-wishers, friends and every aunt in the locality. However, not every information about the things that we see on Instagram and Facebook are accessible to us.
At Manipuri weddings, we maintain a huge database where we have information on all the wedding vendors, the latest trends: fashion, food, culture, where can you find what, who is good at what and why – which will help you ease through your wedding planning process.
We also provide ideas, inspirations, wedding planning tools and checklist which are essential to your wedding planning process. We bring to you news of the latest brands, designs, visuals and services which are trending in the wedding market.
What more, in our featured weddings section, we feature stories of couples who recently got married. We all know it’s the best to hear from the horse’s mouth! And that’s exactly what this section is about: Wedding stories, their plans, the tedious process and wedding planning tips from those who have been there, done that! All these and more with inspiring images.
No, we are not wedding planners but we can help you get you the best deals and the best wedding within your budget.

Jessica H Vaiphei
A Post-graduate in Disaster Management was not enough for this restless soul. A seasonal entrepreneur by choice and an ardent eco-warrior, the occasional content creator spends her free time helping the less fortunate organic farmers and educating them about the importance of organic farming.
Currently on a journey of co-creating her first documentary collection of stories of hope and resilience in conflict torn states of North India, Jessica is helping ManipuriWeddings document Wedding Traditions and Changing Trends among the various tribes of Manipur.
Looking at her confident and lively personality, it comes as no surprise that she belongs to the media world. From interviewing some really famous personalities to interacting with the who’s who of the tinsel town, Nikita is a self-proclaimed queen of gossip (in a journalistic way 😉 ), lover of food and works with one of the largest media house in the North-east India.
She loves an occasional break and loves to indulge in all things pretty (read “weddings”) and thus she agreed to give us some of her spare time to interview some of the most influential personalities in the Wedding and Fashion Industry!
Eliza is our in-house researcher and expert on Meitei Tradition and Rituals. Mom to a beautiful daughter, an entrepreneur in her own right and a content writer who loves to share the little (according to her!) that she has learned from elders around her.
She loves to play with beauty products, indulges in her love for inaphi and accessories and is a non-conformist when it comes to trying new make-up tricks!
We are always looking for writers and contributors. If you love weddings and would like to contribute to our website, you can email us your resume with a link to your blog or a short write up at firstname.lastname@example.org!
