Are you planning your big fat Indian wedding? If you’re looking for a wedding option that allows you to satisfy your wanderlust, get away without inviting a zillion people and make your memorable day even more special than it already is, well, a destination wedding is the perfect way forward! If you’re looking for an interesting location within India for your wedding, there are five places we vouch for –
Rajasthan has always been one of the top destination wedding locations in India, and for very good reasons. There are so many stunning locations within the entire state, you’ll be spoiled for choice! Jaipur’s regal vibe can be tapped into at venues like Rambagh Palace and Jal Mahal Palace. Udaipur’s stunning beauty can be the backdrop of your wedding at the Oberoi Udaivilas, City Palace and Taj Lake Palace. Or, you can even opt for an offbeat wedding on top of a hill a Neemrana Fort Palace in Alwar. The possibilities are simply endless in Rajasthan.
If you love being surrounded by the beauty of nature, Kerala is going to feel like paradise throughout your wedding festivities. Enjoy a traditional wedding vibe in the backwaters of Alleppey. Or, plan an intimate ceremony in the peaceful tea gardens of Munnar.
Andaman & Nicobar Islands
If you’ve always dreamed of a beach wedding (c’mon, all of us go through that phase!), then forget Goa, which is done to death, and instead head over to Andaman & Nicobar Islands. It’s cloistered, pretty and other-worldly. We recommend Havelock Island – check out Munjoh Ocean Resort! Oh, and totally include fun activities for the bridesmaids and groomsmen like a compulsory snorkelling session. Let your wedding be offbeat in every way!
Uttarakhand is rather underrated as a destination wedding location. It offers two fabulous options for you to host your big day – the charming hills of Mussoorie and the spiritual wonderland of Rishikesh. Depending on the vibe you’re going for, both of these places are excellent for a fairy tale wedding.
If you’re truly looking for a location that is as offbeat as it can get within India and also has symbolic meaning, Khajuraho Temples in Madhya Pradesh should be your go-to spot for your wedding. It can’t get more spiritual, artistic and hat-ke than this!
We hope these locations get you started with your wedding planning. Congratulations and best wishes for your exciting journey ahead!
