Forget about the typical fly-away-to-remote-beach Destination Wedding. If you want to experience the richness of another culture and incorporate it into your special day, why don’t you- along with the entire party- fly to India for a perfect Destination Wedding?
With the enticing blend of colors, exquisite food and glorious music, an Indian wedding will certainly enhance the romantic atmosphere, while providing your guests with a completely unique experience.
Indeed, Destination events are growing increasingly popular in the wedding industry because they provide you with a peaceful, stress free vacation, hence allowing you to make the most out of your special day.
Best of all, India has a wide array of venues to choose from, which will certainly enable you to plan your Destination Wedding according to your personal preference and budget.
The most romantic wedding locations in India
Kerala: With its picturesque and serene landscapes, Kerala is one of the most reputed venues for Destination Weddings. You will be able to choose between the long stretches of white, sandy beaches or the large, ethical temples which will bring calm and sanctity to your big day.
Jaipur: Also known as the Pink City, Jaipur is oozing of exotic venues such as the Rambagh Palace, Jai Maal Palace, Jaipur’s Raj Mahal, theMandawa Haveli, among several others. Indeed, these majestic places allow brides from all over the world to feel like a glamorous Princess for one day. Jaipur weddings are quite folkloric because this city is brimming with Indian culture and traditions.
Goa: If you want to tie the knot on one of the most famous beaches in the world, Goa is the perfect place for you. In fact, some travel agencies in Goa do take care of all the wedding-related arrangements in order to provide you with the best possible care. You will need a special permission to get married on the beach, so, it’s always a good idea to contact an agency first.
Food, Clothes and Music
Of course, there is no reason why you can’t wear your white wedding gown on your Indian Destination Wedding. However, brides who really want to add flair and panache to their special day can even put on a classic Indian wedding outfit.
This usually consists of a vividly colored sari, with Red, Gold and Green being the most popular choices. Some Indian brides often wear a long, slinky sequined skirt with a matching crop top that bares their waist.
Of course, you wouldn’t be an Indian bride if you weren’t all decked up in heavy jewellery and makeup. Don’t be afraid to go overboard: after all, you certainly have the right to shine and sparkle on the most special day of your life!
If you want to go all the way, you can even choose an all-Indian buffet for the reception. These are traditionally served on large, green banana leaves (either natural or synthetic) and consist of various curries and flatbreads. Feel free to contact your hotel for catering services.
To end the evening with a bang and usually tape into the Indian culture, why not incorporate some Bollywood music into the reception? Indeed, your guests will love dancing to the rhythmic beats of Carnatic, Santoor, Trance or Jaltarang music.
In some Indo-Bengali cultures, the elderly women of the bride’s family usually sing at the reception, so, don’t hesitate to hand Granny a microphone and delight in her vocal power!
