Wedding is very special event in our life and we all want it to stand out from the many we attend every year as guests. But there only so much you can do, if you book the same kind of venue like your friends do.
Venue is the biggest differentiator in your wedding plans. A carefully selected venue can add a special persona to your event and also save a lot of money you will have to spend on decor to make a substandard city venue live up to your expectations.
So, here it is, a list of 5 offbeat wedding locations and venues to make your wedding stand apart without making your budget go haywire!
1. Wedding in the Wild - The Corbett National Park.
Located just 6 drive hours away in the foothills of Kumaon, Corbett National Park provides a refreshing canvas to your wedding. Nicely connected by train & good roads, Corbett has many good resorts to host your special event close to nature
Being a national park and close to the hill station of Nainital, Corbett is known to most of the people and still has a come again appeal to make your guests look forward to attending your wedding.
Out of the many resorts in Corbett, I would recommend The RiverView Retreat, Corbett , due to many indoor and outdoor venues suitable for destination weddings and the top notch food quality. That it is besides the fabled Kosi River, is an added bonus.
2. Wedding in the Aravali's - Outskirts of Jaipur
The Aravali hills on way to Jaipur from Delhi hide a lot of promising locations and venues which can come in easy in your budget and yet be so much better than your regular city hotels.
The Aravali's give your wedding a destination wedding feel and your event a royal backdrop. Just 2-3 hours away from Delhi, and yet so away from the hustle bustle of the city, your guest get a weekend break and you get lifetime of memories.
Though there are many resorts in the Aravali's, but The Achrol Niwas in outskirts of Jaipur is the one, nicely connected to Jaipur Airport and just a drive away from Delhi, making it easily accessible. The Resort is beautifully laid out and offers a good option for destination wedding in a reasonable budget.
3. Wed with the Birds - Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary

Just 4 hours away by road, Bharatpur offers green surroundings and quaint corners for a very intimate wedding. The pre-post wedding shoot with migratory birds make it one kind of place to host your event in.
