Fancy a big fat wedding in true Indian fashion? The lights, the lehengas, the band, the baraat, the clangour, the colour… there is a world of wedding details to pore over, especially when you’re hoping for a fairy tale destination wedding. From Goa to Kerala, from Rajasthan to Mussorie, India offers you places that are waiting to help create memories for you and your significant other.
Here are our top picks for the top destinations in India for a big fat wedding:
Udaipur: The city of lakes and palaces and luxury and dreams – and that of your holy matrimony. Udaipur is a romantic oasis. So it should come as no surprise, really, that couples from every corner of India are booking their flights to this Rajasthani destination. From pre-wedding shoots in the lawns of Leela Palace to post-wedding bliss in the middle of Lake Pichhola, Udaipur is the place to be for young couples who wish to celebrate their union in a grand manner. Add to the mix the colour and vibrant sounds of Rajasthan, and you’ve got yourself quite the royal treatment!
Goa: Beach wedding! A little bit of sun, a little bit of sand, and a whole lot of love. That’s a Goa wedding for you. The place is a patchwork of breathtaking sunsets, wonderful architecture, lush green open spaces and a fresh sense of freedom. A beach resort sounds like the perfect idea for a fun wedding in Goa, doesn’t it? A fabulous tropical theme for the morning ceremonies, followed by a softly-lit fairy light experience on the sands to host our friends and family for a reception – now that’s an Indian wedding that’s out of the box!
Andaman and Nicobar Islands: An unusual yet ideal destination for a beautiful wedding ae the islands of Andaman and Nicobar. Picture this: just you and your beloved, in a secluded beach at sunset, basking in the light of your recent nuptials. There’s nothing quite like celebrating on sandy beaches from dawn till dusk, with all your near and dear ones with you, in the shade of palm trees on Havelock Islands. (We suggest bright pink and orange colours for our wedding to go with the tropical colours!)
Neemrana Fort: Beaches not your thing? We get it. The last thing some of us want to deal with is sand in our gowns or frizz in our glossy hair. So how about a touch of grandeur and heritage? Head on over to the Neemrana Fort near Gurgaon! It is a magnificent structure that is a photographer’s delight. Perfect for a day-long wedding party, this fort will make your wedding even more special. After all, marriage is a fortress that vows to survive the test of time.
Mussoorie: Make couples wish they were you, standing atop the Queen of Hills, saying ‘I Do’. Imagine getting married against the backdrop of the majestic Himalayas, the Milky Way stretching across the heavens above. Magical, isn’t it? The very air up there carries the sweet aroma of romance, made to bring love closer than ever in a knot that promises forever. There’s nothing better than a wedding picture in Mussoorie, with the mountains in the background and flowers blossoming in the valley much like the love between you and your significant other.
Why stay content with an everyday destination like a mantapor hotel room, however grandiose? It’s time to embrace what nature can offer you when it comes to creating the perfect atmosphere for your wedding day. Whether it’s a budget wedding or a carefully planned big fat Indian wedding, there’s a destination for all of you.
