According to the report, Australian travel bloggers Carly Stevens and Tim Gower paid around $200 for a two-day invitation to attend an Indian wedding through a startup called Join My Wedding.  Both the Australians attended the wedding of Surabhi Chauhan, a Delhi-based fund manager as part of the deal, the report said.
"The concept was pretty new… We were also getting to know people from other countries. We were very much excited and open about it, given the fact that it was new,” Chauhan was quoted saying in the report.  She also stated in the report that she and her husband were introduced to Stevens and Gower by one of the start-up's co-founders, Orsi Parkanyi.
As per the report, couples interested in inviting a tourist to their wedding can list details about their weddings on the startup’s website. Tourists interested in participating in the event can select the interested wedding from the list and pay for the invite, from which a small cut will be deducted by the startup, the report said.
