Destination weddings which were completely unknown a decade ago, are now being opted by almost all the couples – be it celebrities or common man. Recently, a very famous television couple entered into matrimonial alliance in the beautiful hill town of Shimla. The picturesque hill station of Shimla proved to be the perfect backdrop for their Wedding. It is indeed a very good idea to celebrate your very special day in a place which is abundant in natural beauty and with selected people who you can truly call your well-wishers. The idea behind destination weddings is – less people, more fun. Although, less people does not always mean less expenses, it definitely means a life time of unforgettable memories with the people who hold a place of importance in your life. After all, what is point of inviting people to your wedding who you haven’t met in a lifetime, but only heard names of!
Today, couples want to get hitched in places that are less explored, natural and rejuvenating. Although Goa, Udaipur, Jaipur, Kerala, Shimla, Punjab, Bangalore, Bali & Andaman and Nicobar Islands remain popular wedding destinations; some adventurous souls don’t mind exploring places like Rishikesh, Darjeeling, Assam, Jaiselmer, Neemrana, Mussorie, Ooty and so on. All that is required in a place is that it should be situated in the lap of nature, be able to cater to the requirements of the Wedding and should not be very remotely accessible by the Wedding party. Many couples also opt for weddings on a cruise and taking the vows underwater while many get hitched in a private plane in the presence of 30 to 40 people. In any case, the couples make sure they & their guests enjoy every second of their ceremonies and don’t have to worry about arranging minute details for every function. That’s where the Wedding Planners play a key role in reducing the headaches of the couple and their families.
Opting for a Destination Wedding does not mean compromising in terms of food, décor & entertainment. With the advent and continuous evolution of modern technology and digital world it is now possible to get any service or product to the place you desire. So, if you want an experienced biryani chef from Hyderabad to come and prepare scrumptious biryani at your wedding in Shimla or Rishikesh, than he can be flown to your venue with his team and then you can treat your guests with food from his/her kitchen. Also any décor can be arranged in any Venue as long as the weather does not play fickle. And as regards entertainment, any performer or artist can be booked after paying their performance charges.
The best part about a destination wedding is that you can include the local specialities to your food, décor and entertainment which will only add to the uniqueness and magnificence of the place you choose to get married. Once you are sure of the place you want to get married in, you just need a perfect Venue and Wedding planner who will take care of everything, right from scratch.
So, go ahead and select a beautiful Venue for your D-day.
