Wedding Invitation

A wedding invitation is a letter asking the recipient to attend a wedding. It is typically written in formal, third-person language and mailed five to eight weeks before the wedding date.

Like any other invitation, it is the privilege and duty of the host—historically, for younger brides in Western culture, the mother of the bride, on behalf of the bride's family—to issue invitations, either by sending them herself or causing them to be sent, either by enlisting the help of relatives, friends, or her social secretary to select the guest list and address envelopes, or by hiring a service.

The Dictionary of Indian Matrimonial

Marriage is highly regarded in the Indian community and this has led to the rise in the number of matrimonial sites, which are mainly favored by Indians both abroad and at home as they are charged with uploading those who have registered Profiles onto databases.
There are many people who are making billions of dollars through the internet by indulging themselves into web based Indian matrimonial activities. They are the ones who have entirely exploited the prospective of finding suitors for potential Indians across the globe, but at a price of course. Indians are quite popular with such services, given the fact that their backgrounds are unique in their own way with issues such as caste being a factor to be considered whenever individuals decide to find their chosen suitors. 
It is therefore these deep seated religious tangles that have seen Indians indulge in matrimony based on certain features. Indians value their traditional backgrounds; there are websites that have been devoted to provide for certain languages and communities.
Online matrimony is slowly taking over and many Indians across the world have found themselves resort to the service for matters marriage and as a result the traditional old fashioned arranged marriage is being edged out, mainly due to the fact that technology has brought with it new ways in which the media has used to bring out to the world some of the much intended cultural practices. Young girls have been known to be forced out of school and into early marriages to people nearly thrice their ages. This has seen globally condemnation directed to the practice and as a result the more learned Indians have now shunned it.
High enrollment rates into Indian matrimonial sites among Indian girls are normally when they are between the ages of eighteen years to twenty three.
