A Tamil Nadu couple has opted to celebrate their wedding reception virtually, making it India’s first Metaverse wedding.
India’s First Wedding Reception In The Metaverse
Dinesh S P and Janaganandhini Ramaswamy will marry on the first Sunday of February in Krishnagiri district. However, the couple will transport their guests to a virtual location via a login connection on their laptops for their reception.
According to the Times of India, the celebration would be hosted in the dining room of Hogwarts castle, where the couple’s avatar will meet the avatars of their loved ones who will log in from all around the world.
The bride’s late father’s avatar will preside over the wedding reception.
For those who are unfamiliar, Metaverse is a virtual reality environment that mixes augmented reality, virtual reality; and blockchain technology to create a platform for live user interaction via digital avatars.
Dinesh S P, the groom, looks to be quite pleased about his virtual celebration and has published brief invitation footage of his upcoming wedding on Twitter. You may see it here:

The groom, Dinesh S P told TOI, “I came up with the idea of having a Metaverse wedding reception and my fiancée also liked the idea”.
Since a year ago, the man, who works as a project associate at IIT Madras; has been keen in crypto, blockchain technology and crypto mining.
Dinesh S P opted to have a reception in Metaverse since it uses blockchain technology.
Bride Jaganandhini Ramaswamy is equally excited for her virtual event, saying that because the couple met on Instagram, having a wedding reception in Metaverse seemed fitting.
To put his reception ideas into reality, the groom contacted Vignesh Selvaraj of Quatics Tech; specializing in online and mobile app development.
Because both the bride and groom are Harry Potter fans, it was decided to hold the reception in a Harry Potter environment. While the couple has opted to dress their avatars in traditional attire; their guests can change their avatars at login time.
Meanwhile, the pair will take coupons, cryptos, and wedding guests can send money using Google Pay during their reception.
