20 Best Places to Have Your Very Own Destination Wedding

Before you read further, I want you to quickly grab a chair and sit down because your heart might just skip a beat after reading the next line. Destination weddings are cheaper than traditional weddings. Shocked? Well, destination weddings do not require you to shell out large sums of money for a wedding ceremony, reception and a honeymoon, separately. And that is the most fundamental reason for destination weddings being cheaper than traditional or local weddings.

Besides, the resorts that you book are usually independent and self-sufficient so, any extra charges are seldom incurred. Furthermore, because destination weddings are farther and the guests have to pay for their own travel, the number of people that actually attend the wedding reduces. This means that you can send out as many as a 1000 invitations and be sure that only around 200 of them would be attending the ceremony. Destination weddings also mean fewer tagalongs, which happens in Indian weddings far too often. Actually, ALWAYS!

So, now that you know how destination weddings can be an economical choice, let us look at some of the best venues from across the world for having your own Indian destination wedding.

Now, while Uganda is a massive country, you have to pick a specific city to visit. If you prefer to visit a more urbanised area, you can always choose to go to the capital city of Uganda, Kampala. However, if you wish to stay away from the city, you can choose to stay in the more remote areas of the country.

Why Should You Go There? –

Why Should You Go There? –

If you live in the metro cities of India, you will find Kashmir to be really cheap because it has not developed entirely yet.

10. Vietnam

The last place on our list of best vacation spots for couples is Vietnam, another tourist destination located in the southeastern part of Asia.

This place also has something else that Indians just naturally have a passion for, which is history. Vietnam is a country with an extremely heart-wrenching history of war. Thus, if you are a couple who loves to explore the history of a particular place, you would absolutely love this place for its museums and architecture.

You get to visit the various forests of flowers and spot a delightful variety of birds and other creatures throughout the tour.

The second thing that separates Barbados from the other places on the list is… yup. You are right. The title gave it away. The flying fish, Bajan and Cou Cou, are a part of the traditional Barbadian cuisine. In fact, you can find these fish flying almost 200 feet above the surface of the water. Absolutely magical!

The Romance of Barbados –

Barbados is blessed in terms of its geography. So, you get to experience both the Atlantic sunrise and the Caribbean sunset in one day at the Barbados Boardwalk located on the southern coast. And if your love for alcohol cannot stop your cravings, you can always stop at the Mount Gay Rum Distillery for a relaxing cocktail tour. So, when are you setting off the sails?

6. Scotland – Wake Up to the Sound of the Bagpipe

That sounded a little stereotypical, didn’t it? But as Indians, that is probably the only popular fact that we have learnt about Scotland. And that is exactly the reason why you should consider going to Scotland for your next couple’s trip. This place is all about being happy. Therefore, you will find that Scotland is a home to various kinds of arts and artistic festivals. They love their music and dance. How do we know that? Well, their national animal is a unicorn. Yup, you can go back and read that again because it is a funny truth. Almost unbelievable.

The Romance of Scotland –

The Scottish romance is slightly more royal than that of us peasants’ (Just Kidding!), owing to its renowned royal history. So, don’t be surprised if you find as many castles in Scotland as you do in India. In fact, that picture above is from the Isle of Skye. It is a place with a very interestingly rocky landscape and a number of castles. Moreover, just to give you an idea about the couple-friendliness of this place, here is another piece of information that you would like. Scotland offers couple-jobs to its residents, so you can actually share not only a personal life but also a professional life with your partner.

7. Turkey – Where the Only Thing Sweeter than Your Love Would Be the Baklavas

Okay, that was cheesy. But Turkey is all about sweetness. Everything from their food to people is sweet. They are one of the more modern Islamic states who are rightly fond of all things excellent. When Zindagi began to air Turkish shows in India, the audience went gaga over the country. Indians loved the shows and the lifestyle shown in them. In fact, Turkey was added on the bucket list of many Indian women. And why not? It offers everything that every other place on the list does and yet manages to remain more magnetic than the others.

The Romance of Turkey –

Turkey is a country that flaunts a brilliant blend of Asian and European culture. It is traditional yet modern in many ways. While they may not believe in grand romantic gestures like Parisians or Italians, they prefer to keep it between the two by engaging in an intimate moment. Right from starting your day with a beaming sunrise at Mount Nemrut to enjoying a romantic hot air balloon ride at the sunset, you can do it all.

8. Croatia – For Your Love of Culinary Arts

You may not know the capital of Croatia (it is Zagreb, just so you know!) but you should know that it is the place for you if you are an ultimate foodie. Croatia is famous for its culinary arts. Kickstart your day with something that we refer to as fuel for humans – coffee, which is what Croatia is famous for. Then slowly indulge in a delicious breakfast, an assortment of bacon, eggs, beans, sausages and bread. A typical English breakfast. And as the sun sets in and it is time for lunch, you have a wide variety of grilled pork, beef, lamb and meat to choose from.

The Romance of Croatia –

A dedicated part of Croatia is that of the ancient ruins. The Roman architecture gives it a Game of Thrones kind of vibe, which, all the GOT fans would agree, is pretty awesome. And it is the same reason that the scenes of King’s Landing were shot there. So, if you and your partner are GOT enthusiasts, you would love to visit this place. Besides, you can either take a yacht and enjoy the sea or go for a bittersweet wine tasting. Alternatively, if you don’t feel the need to splurge, you can pack a picnic and spend your day on the Lokrum island.

9. Norway – Underneath the Northern Lights

Norway is a home to the Vikings, hiking and fishing. Oh and skiing, too. However, this place is more popular for the Northern Lights. In fact, most of its tourism occurs for this stunning, almost incredible natural phenomenon. But this is the only place where you can experience the Northern Lights in their full glory because the geography is just perfect here. A romantic camping under the lights is just the right way of spending your holiday.

The Romance of Norway –

While the Northern Lights sell themselves, there are some other reasons why Norway is an ideal destination for your next couple’s trip. Take a snowmobile for an unforgettable experience in the snow. And if you wish to do something even more unique, you can actually spend a romantic night in an igloo. What could be more intimate than this?

10. Sweden – The Most Perfect Country in the World. Literally!

Apart from having a capital that sounds like a syndrome (which is pretty interesting), Sweden offers great options for a couple’s trip. There is a reason that it is called the happiest place on earth. Also, Sweden is another place where you can experience the Northern Lights. Besides that, there are many other things to explore, including a handful of royal palaces.

The Romance of Sweden –

It does not matter if you are 20 or 81, straight or gay, male or female. You would enjoy Sweden equally no matter who you are. From having a Swedish brunch on a cruise to kayaking on the lake, there is nothing that you would not find here. And that is exactly why Sweden is such an ideal place for your next couple’s trip.
