Are you planning to get hitched in the coming months and looking for that perfect destination that will play host to the wedding of your dreams? If you love the sea, then it doesn’t get better than tying the knot at one of the many charming beaches dotting the country’s coastline. Be it Kovalam in Kerala or Havelock in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, you have ample options to choose from. Picking the right destination can be nerve-wracking, so we’ve made it easier for you by curating a list of beaches across India that are pretty, practical, and peaceful to boot.
If you’re thinking Alibaug is too plain for a destination wedding, think again—it was Varun Dhawan’s venue of choice for his nuptials. This star-favourite destination has a lot going for it—it’s stunning and peaceful, offers a wide range of hotels and resorts, and is conveniently located only a few hours away from Mumbai, making it easier for planning.
Kerala, with its lush greenery, meandering backwaters and scenic beaches is the perfect candidate for a fairytale destination wedding, and Kovalam, a coastal town south of Thiruvananthapuram offers the options of plenty of luxury resorts dotting its shores, in addition to a stunning view, of course! Plan your nuptials right on the beach during the day, then move the party to one of the many sprawling gardens of the resorts in the evening.
Have you got an extremely private ceremony on your mind? Then Lakshadweep is the destination that should be on your radar. Its Bangaram, Kavaratti, Kalpeni, and Agatti islands are ideal for an extravagant affair with a trimmed down guest list. Tie the knot with the crystal-clear azure waters and white sand as the backdrop, or alternatively, book a luxury cruise for a unique wedding experience. Whatever you choose, know that your wedding will be one for the books!
Havelock, Andaman and Nicobar Islands
Another option if you’re looking for a low-key affair is Havelock, which is one of the most picturesque of all Andaman islands, and also a favourite with tourists. It offers everything from picture-perfect beaches, luxury properties, pleasant weather, and plenty of activities for your guests to do—think snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming with elephants, and more. So, if you’re planning to turn your destination wedding into a mini vacation for all your guests, then you know where to go!
Goa's stunning beaches (many of them still secluded) will make for a prime location for an intimate wedding against the backdrop of the Arabian Sea. South Goa especially is known for being more idyllic than its northern counterpart, so head to one of the beaches like Majorda, for your big day. Majorda is everything you’d want from your wedding destination—it boasts of golden sands, turquoise waters, and coconut trees neatly lining the shore. Plus, it’s every bit peaceful and tranquil!
Redefining 'happily ever after'.
It allows you unwind after the wedding and enjoy a better and longer trip later!
