Beach Weddings are probably what most of dream of. Forging your bond of love accompanied by the crashing waves and gentle breeze is an awesome experience. Add to that the soft natural lighting of a spectacular sunset and the warmth of your near and dear ones, a beach wedding is truly memorable. It’s perfect for weddings between October and March in India especially in Goa, Mangalore, Kerala, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, etc. Of course, you want it to be pleasant and breezy out there.

A palace is the perfect setting for a royal wedding. The elegance and history associated with the location is just breath-taking. There are several heritage resorts and palaces scattered across the country like Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner in Rajasthan and other locations in Mysore, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat. Great kings and queens who lived in these palaces are just part of the folklore associated with these heritage resorts. You can check out the history behind each palace and the approximate cost at Weddingz.in, which has the largest collection of such palaces and resorts across India and choose the best one for you.
Hills make a very cosy and romantic setting for weddings. Getting married in the backdrop of lofty mountains, lush greenery and cool weather is indeed very special. Hill resorts are aplenty in the Himalayan hillstations like Shimla, Darjeeling, Nainital, etc and in the Western Ghats in Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar and Kerala. While hillstations are perfect for weddings in the spring and summer, make sure you arrange for a campfire sangeet!
Imagine taking a luxury cruise on the high seas for your wedding. Ever since we saw Dil Dhadakne Do, India’s imagination has grown to include a big fat wedding on the cruise. A cruise wedding is an extremely luxurious event only for the truly elite. Several cruise liners offer 2–3 day wedding packages that can be customized to suit your needs.
Rustic destinations typically include forests and village settings which give a countryside feel to the wedding. They are not as popular in India as they are in the West. Popular destinations for a forest wedding are resorts in national parks like Jim Corbett, Gir, Kanha, etc. Village themed resorts are also popular for such a setting.
