As there are many companies and institutions that are doing interesting things in this space, the founders got together to get the industry’s voices, ideas, and businesses out there for further development, sharing of experiences and capacity building.

AmmanTT is held in Amman on the first Tuesday of every month and is a 2-hour event that brings industry experts, local technologists/engineers, entrepreneurs, idea-generators and just about any enthusiast together in a casual setting to meet and learn from each other.

To celebrate its 2nd anniversary, AmmanTT is gathering over 110 tech start-ups from Jordan on May 1st.

Arabia Weddings, which was established in September 2011, will be there to promote its bilingual wedding planning platform that targets Jordan, initially, and the rest of the Arab countries starting later this year. Make sure to visit us if you are in Jordan.

Introduction to Wedding Registries

Creating a wedding gift registry is not easy. In fact, it can be very confusing and time consuming for the bride & groom-to-be who are not familiar with what a new household requires.

In the West, couples tend to live together before marriage, therefore, they have an idea of what a new household may require.

In the Arab world, this is totally different. Arab couples DO NOT live together before marriage. This is a social taboo. In fact, some (in very conservative societies) would not have seen each other before their wedding night.

So, putting together a wedding gift list may not be as easy as it sounds.

If you don’t know anything about gift registries and don’t even know what you want or where to sign for (particularly if you are living in Amman – Jordan), here is everything you need to know.
