In celebration of their engagement, an Indian couple will have a virtual wedding with a Hogwarts theme on February 6, according to the Hindustan Times. A new NFT collection has been launched on the NFT collection portal Guardianlink.io, which includes the couple’s virtual avatars as well as wedding invitations, among other mementos from their wedding. The couple’s virtual avatars and wedding invitations are among the items in their NFT collection, which is in keeping with the current metaverse trend.
Despite the fact that Covid-19 is forcing families throughout India to reduce or cancel their normally large-scale weddings, the couple has discovered a location that is untouched by these restrictions: the metaverse.
In the cryptocurrency world, unicorns exist. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from this metaverse wedding will be donated to the NFT collection, which will be a work of art that will include visuals and clothes from the Harry Potter and cyberpunk eras, as well as traditional wedding apparel displaying the bride, groom, and the bride’s late father, among other things.
The groom, a 24-year-old blockchain and cryptocurrency fan, worked with TardiVerse, a start-up platform, to make a castle-like digital space that looked like Hogwarts.
The formal wedding will still go place in Ramaswamy’s hamlet in Tamil Nadu’s Krishnagiri district, roughly 170 miles from Chennai. A reception that costs 21,000 Indian rupees ($2,016) to plan, create, and host. Guests may tour the castle and personalise their avatars’ looks and outfits throughout the one-hour event.
Virbela, a virtual platform, has been used for other metaverse weddings, like when a couple from the US had a physical wedding and a digital one on the platform at the same time. However, Padmavathi thinks that his wedding in the metaverse will be the first of its kind to happen in India.
