Today’s question is about Destination Weddings, so if you’re planning on having one, you probably want to read on.
I want to have a destination wedding in India, but I think Goa and Udaipur are overdone. Are there any off-beat locations in India where I can consider having my wedding?
What The Wedding Planner Said
There are a number of destinations one can choose in India, other than Goa and Udaipur. Here are a few suggestions –
#1 Jodhpur for a royalty-style wedding
If you want the whole royal experience and don’t want to be in bustling Udaipur, Jodhpur is a viable option. Easily accessible from both Bombay and Delhi – the Umaid Bhawan is a beautiful place to be married in. The Mehrangarh fort is perfect for a night of revelry. You can even head out to the desert for the first night. If you want an offbeat place to stay in, The Raas is another beautiful property.
#2 Srinagar for a Yashraj-style filmy wedding
If you want a filmy wedding, Srinagar is another option. The Lalit is a beautiful hotel to stay in with its palatial gardens. Go for a romantic shikara ride, organise a cricket match for the Mehendi or just drive off to Pahalgoan or Gulmarg for the afternoon.
#3 Ranthambore for the tight-knit small wedding affair
For a small intimate wedding, I would recommend Ranthambore .The Aman-I-Khas is a quaint resort with beautiful tents – it’s the perfect offbeat destination.
