The most sought-after luxury and the biggest draw is the lure of Destination Wedding. And then the question to seek an answer for is – Where?
Why are destination weddings popular?
The recent study and market trends show that most couples wish for a more intimate and memorable wedding, surrounded by their close family and friends, at a place far away from home, to celebrate their special union.
Instead of the old, formal, and traditional weddings in pandals and banquets, they want to spend money on creating experiences and moments. Destination weddings are the perfect canvas to do that. It takes you away from the stress of your city and calls for an intimate celebration in the presence of dear and loved ones with memories that last for a lifetime.
But then, which is the perfect destination location?
Fortunately for we Indians, our country is a beautiful painting made with myriad colors. From the snow-covered Kashmir to the backwaters of Kerala, India offers unique locations for destination weddings. But the Top Two Locations which take the prize for offering a unique setting, the royal wedding feel, famed cuisine, logistical convenience, and are a top draw for your guests, are Jaipur and Udaipur.
Jaipur, the Pink City of India, a place steeped in history, palaces, and forts, is the topmost preferred location for destination weddings in India. And, it is preferred not only by Indians but by people from all over the globe. Jaipur is known as the wedding destination due to the easy accessibility and convenience that the city has to offer. It is connected to all nearby cities, and despite having such networks, it has managed to maintain its heritage and traditions even today. Jaipur has something for everyone.
The advantage of being close to the capital city with spending power, good connectivity by road, train, and flights, luxury hotels, and world-class venues, and the easily available wedding planning ecosystem makes it the top choice.
Though the destination wedding is not a cheap affair, if planned well, an Intimate destination wedding in Jaipur can be planned within 20-30 lakh rupees for 100 guests.

If you crave a wedding that reflects royalty in the most beautiful way, Udaipur is the perfect destination. Udaipur is known to be the city of lakes, and nothing beats the reflection of the fort on clear lake while you take your wedding vows.
