Who We Are

Two Love Birds

Hi there!

We’re two completely opposite Chicago natives and MBA students who crossed paths in June 2018. We met at a restaurant and ever since then we've been inseparable. Opposites do attract after all!

While it's been great to be happily engaged, we eventually became frustrated with our wedding planning process. Manali was busy with work and school while Raj was busy growing his businesses and prepping for school. With our busy schedules, it was difficult finding South Asian wedding vendors, their prices, and reviews...and we didn't want to fork up $15k for a wedding planner. A fun process turned out to be a nightmare and info that should be easily accessible turned out to be hard to get.

Thus, we started Pyaari Weddings so couples can actually have fun, while easily finding wedding costs, venues, caterers, photographers, videographers, DJ's, henna artists, makeup artists, and officiants in New York, LA, SF, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and DC. We hope this site saves you time in the research process so you can focus more on creating the wedding that you envision. Happy wedding planning and congrats!

P.S. - Drop us a note to let us know how your experience :)
