Indian Weddings in Offbeat Locations

If you are one of those couples who prefer getting married away from the hectic pace and maddening crowd of today, here is a look at some offbeat destinations which will serve your purpose of a quite serene and beautiful wedding location.

The Himalayas always seems to be associated with cold weather, snow and uncomfortable accommodation. However this illusion is shattered once you visit this beautiful and exotic location. The luscious green forests and the snow capped misty mountains overlooking the lawns provide an ideal setting for professing your love to one another. Between the functions, you can also engage your adventurous guests in activities like trekking, mountain picnics and river rafting or yoga and meditation for the less adventurous.

Surrounded by mystic blue hills, snow capped peaks and numerous lush gardens, the tea plantations of Assam, Darjeeling and Munnar are well known tourists spots in India. There are some tea estates here, which offer quaint cottages surrounded by hills and tea plantations for weddings and honeymooners. Trekking, boating, fishing, cycling are some activities that can be planned for the guests. Apart from this, you can also set up a site visit for your guests or indulge your guests in a tea tasting party where your guest sit back and sample the various aromatic flavors of fresh home grown tea.

The magical expanse of sand framed by a clear blue sky during the day and the soft orange red glow of the fading sun paints a mesmerizing picture for anyone visiting the dunes for the first time. These dunes are perfect for an intimate celebration. Since many of the magnificent palces in Rajasthan have been converted into hotels, these are perfect for a royal destination wedding. Some of these places have private sand dunes, which are maintained, by the hotels. To give your guests a taste of Rajasthan, instead of doing all your functions at the hotel, you can opt between having a pre wedding party or even the wedding ceremony itself at the dunes.

If getting married in the middle of a sea is your idea of a perfect wedding, then the Lakshadweep islands are one of the most exotic destinations in India you can come across. 

These islands are not much frequented by tourists and hence give you a chance of experiencing untouched beauty of nature. With a choice of 36 islands to choose from, you can give your guests the chance to visit beautiful coral reefs, hire a cruise ship or let them choose from snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, para sailing, fishing and other activities.
