Things to consider while shortlisting priests/pandits in Chennai

These are the things to consider while hiring a priest or pandit:

Set your budget

Start your search by first fixing a budget for the pandits or priests. Try to speak with people who have recently had a wedding. They will have an idea of good and reliable pandits or priests.

Family or outside

Some families will have priests or pandits known to them or are part of the family. Decide on whether you want to book them or want to search elsewhere.

Community specific

If you need a specific community priest, make a note of it. Search and enquire on where you can find them and discuss with them to get all possible information.


Any specific requirements that you have, make a note of it. Explain your needs to all the priests or pandits that you meet and get their response.

Pandits and priests

Pandits or priests are the pillars of any wedding ceremony. We know that you, being the hosts are supposed to be the pillars, but only a pandit or a priest knows the rituals of the wedding. Only they can make a wedding divine with their presence. Their blessings are much needed for any couple to start their married life.

However, we have also seen many pandits or priests who are frauds and it is highly difficult to differentiate the innocent ones with frauds. They have just the subtle difference and that leads us to not believe even the truthful ones.

Fret not, now, we have handpicked those pandits and priests who have the knowledge and devotion towards the almighty. They only have one thing in mind - sharing goodness among people.

We do believe in their thought and would want to share this goodness in every possible way.
