Firstphera.com – Indian Online Wedding Site Creator Review!!!!

This morning when i got an invitation to review firstphera.com i was pretty surprised keeping in mind nor am i married(or plan to get married any soon) nor such a good blogger who people would send their site for review.

But would thanks Vikas for sending me out invitation code as Rajesh @ Alootechie.net always tend to get one sent like 1 week prior to other bloggers.Anyway by the time i got down to writing it Rajesh had already made his post. Still here it goes.

Firstphera.com is beginning of creation of digital services built around proven business model of online matrimonial classified listing. The site to attract visitor in its free service stage provide facility for couples to create online wedding site where they give handy tools which can be used to save the memories and share tasks. Example i live the RSVP thing or you may say guest list creator where both would be groom and bride can share guest lists etc. But the main service or functionality which site focuses lot is on Uploading pictures to share in website design format with people/friends.

Though the site technology wise is good with nice use of AJAX and all what i really couldnt figure out when i can host my picture on Yahoo Albums or flickr why take the extra effort to create another wedding site. Secondly The site is concentrating too much on collection of information/images as memory and not helping todays fast lane first in love then getting married couple arrange activities etc.

Couple of years ago i burnt my hands building a site called rishteyonline.com where the model was to do something similar but if firstphera.com could add my listed below wish list. I am certain their business model will flourish and will get invited for a treat of coffee at their office.

Wish List

  • Create facility to add tasks to be done and help in dividing work for marriage into steps.
  • Help Delegate tasks to friends and families keep track and let couples remain organize.
  • Monetize by offering help on each objective from finding Wedding venue to brides jewelery

So its very basic get an Project management software customize it to act as a wedding planner and boom you are out there way ahead of matrimonydiary.com etc. See the idea is that you supplement the classified sites but you have potential for addressing a bigger segment bigger market than what shaadi.com or other matrimonial sites are offering. Concentrate on pre-wedding things more instead of post wedding. Post wedding is a market in itself where the business model avenues are totally seperate and you need more services instead of just facility to host pictures and add contents on their life as a couple.

Cute concept but need a good business model to grow and stay. Wont mind consulting!!!

    Hi Sid – We do have a task list tool where in couples could create and track tasks through reminders. Its not super-fancy, but helps manage tasks nevertheless.

    Thanks for your wish list. We’ll be sure to consider it🙂

    Dear Mr Siddharth Puri,

    I read your review of http://www.firstphera.com, an upcoming wedding website. I was tracking this site for sometime. I had also met Mr Vikas Sabnani, its young CEO who was left his high paying job at Expedia.com to start this site. He has been to IITBomaby campus on the day Barcamp was organised. He spent a day with us. I work IIT Bombay in Bambu Studio in IDC to incubate a start up of a few Professor. I has a long meeting with Mr Sabnani and quizzed him on a lot subject relating to the business and content model of the portal.

    Mr Sabnani’s biggest strength is he understands what he is going to do. He is a rare kind of listener. From very beginning, I told me why are you not announcing thta you have started a start up called Firstphera.com ! He was shy about. At the end of it, he told it was good to announce our product in such a gathering for promotion purpose. You will find rare honesty of this kind! I really learnt this aspect of business management ! He gave me a small presentation on his business model. Everything is well planned. He is even planning to shift to Pune, the other start up hub of India after Bangalore. My friend Sachin Datta, a Phd scholar in IDC, IIT Bombay asked him: is the portal is your plan to come home? He lives in San Francisco. He threw a clear “no”. He told it is the business potential.

    His business model is wedding affairs. His success will also add a lot to fashion designer and trader, marriage videographer and other business man related to the domain.

    His approach is globalist ! Indian city Ahemadabad has given IIM (Indian Institute of Management) to us. Again this city will fetch IIM (Indian Institute of Marriage). I wish this portal Firstphera.com for success! It may help the vendors and other stake holders to rediscover the business aspect attached to a wedding!!!

    Wedding is a great and unforgettable day in everyone’s life. Planning, Sharing and executing it is a Herculean task. Here we are going to review about a new website which makes this planning and sharing very easy.
    The review about this website is envious for the newly married couples. But it will be very useful for eagerly waiting “to be” married couples.
    Now I guess you are curious to know what is special about this website.
    It’s a website which helps you to create your own wedding website as that you can invite your relatives, friends, near and dear ones.
    Having your own wedding website is a good idea. In the beginning owing a wedding website was something new. But now it is a necessary feature to be considered in ones wedding. As the proverb goes “Necessity is the mother of all invention” this website is created to fulfill your necessity.
    Now a day’s couples usually invite their friends and their so called hi-tech relatives by sending their scanned wedding invitation through e-mails. The number of people to whom you want to send the wedding invitation will go up in future as everyone is becoming internet savvy.
    Instead of sending your scanned invitation it would be great if you create your own wedding website and invite your friends and relatives. It will be more useful if the website not only helps you to invite but it also helps you to share information about the couple, in depth details about the various wedding ceremony and so on.
    All the above said features sound good. But if you think you don’t know the technicality of creating a website, there is nothing to worry about it. This Invity.com site is designed in such a way that it helps to create your own wedding website easily and have a unique web address (URL). In here creating the personal wedding website is similar to how we physically choose our wedding Invitation card. Once you enter a wedding Invitation card shop, you have variety of option to choose your wedding card designs. In a similar manner once you login into invity.com you have variety of themes that you can choose. After choosing a theme you can add all your information. The bride and groom details with their photos can be added and you can share your interesting story of how you met each other, your family details, memorable photos and so on. An important and interesting feature is that the invitees can bless the couple on the wedding website. There are so many features offered by the site that enriches your wedding website. Also you can announce everyone about your wedding website through e-mail, sent from invity.com.
    Invity.com helps you not only to create your website before your wedding but you can retain it after your wedding to add your wedding photos and to thank your invitees.
    Invity.com has termed your personal wedding website as wedsite. In this fast moving world Invity.com has made your pre wedding life smooth and tension free by inviting everyone for your wedding through e-mail and shares your wedding plan in a website.
    All these enriched features are provided for free in Invity.com. But if you still want additional features to make your wedding website more colorful and unique you have to become a paid member. We Indians spend a lot for our wedding and I think it’s not a great matter to spend a little for our wedding website.

      I just stumbled upon this URL to write a review on the website http://www.invity.com which I had used for creating my wedding website. So thought to drop a few words on it. I was referred by my friend to create an wedding invitation online for my wedding. I created my website in just 10 minutes and was able to announce my wedding site to all my friends easily. The themes they have on their website is soooo good that I was changing my website’s theme often. I started as a free member and now upgraded to premium member to use more robust features. I strongly recommend all “to be” married couples to check this website before committing on other wedding website.
