Evibe is an end-to-end party-planning platform for a range of events such as birthday parties, weddings, housewarming, surprises and youth parties.

When Swathi Bavanaka and B Anjaneyulu Reddy decided to get married back in December 2012, they had to plan their wedding in Hyderabad while being based in Bengaluru. To understand the wedding market and the costs, they began looking for online platforms but found no convenient platform that could help them with all the information they needed.

There was JustDial with phone numbers but that was about it.

“We wanted to know the complete details for each service, pricing and latest trends but nothing of that sort was available. That’s when we got the idea of solving this problem using technology. We wanted to build something like Zomato for weddings. But this is the 2015 Zomato I’m talking about, which at that point only had end-to-end information about a restaurant from prices, menus, offers to location, ratings and reviews,” Anjaneyulu says.

With their wedding around the corner, the couple quit their jobs and started working on the idea. They began speaking to all kinds of service providers involved in weddings such as hotels, venues, photographers, caterers, decorators and others.

An important insight they gleaned was that service providers interested in advertising on such platforms or paying for listings were willing to come on board – if the platform ensured business for them. That’s when they decided to build a transactional platform where users could log in and plan their entire wedding and book all the services they needed on a single platform.
