What do host families often ask us?
Why should I invite a foreigner to my wedding?
By inviting someone from a different country to your wedding, you can enjoy sharing cultural nuances and making new friends. The next time you go travelling to their country, you’ll have someone to meet!
How do I know that the guests will respect my wedding?
Guests pay a significant fee in order to be a part of your special day. They want to learn about your culture and experience the beauty of Indian weddings. So, they are bound to conduct themselves in a respectful manner throughout each function they attend.
How do you verify the guest’s identity?
We ask all our users to sign up through their social media accounts, which helps us verify who they are!
Do we have to arrange for accommodation for the guest?

What if the guest can’t speak English?
At Zipomp, we want to offer the amazing experience of Indian weddings to guests from all cultural backgrounds. If the guest cannot speak the same languages as you, we offer assistance to make the hosting responsibilities far easier for everyone!
When will I receive my gift money?
We ensure that all the guests perform 25% of secure online payment before attending your wedding. However, in order to ensure fairness to both sides, we ask guests to pay the remaining 75% of the amount directly to the couple on the wedding day as a wedding gift.
Will my wedding details be made public on Zipomp?

What does my invitation include?
By buying an invite to the Indian wedding, you are privy to unlimited food and entry to every function of the wedding as stated in the package. The invitation price also includes taxes. If host families are offering additional services such as accommodation, transportation, or a 2-day invite, the details will be highlighted in the wedding package. This way, you can make an informed decision while choosing the wedding.

Why should I pay to be a guest?
The fee that you pay in order to be a part of the wedding goes to the Indian couple as a gift to start their new life together. Zipomp only takes a small commission from this fee for facilitating your amazing experience!
