A good way to understand India as a country is by taking a peek into its lavish weddings. Indian weddings are all about celebrating the bond of matrimony and love the groom & bride share. Every year, thousands of marriages take place in India and crores of rupees are spent as a result. With an increase in people’s earnings, the want for a destination wedding abroad is soaring and people are constantly on the lookout for the next best place. The elaborate rituals, delicious food and magnificent destinations in India have now attracted several foreigners and NRIs to its doors. The irony is that while people abroad are embracing the deep rooted traditions and aesthetics of Indian weddings, we are somehow trying to outgrow them. 

It’s time we embrace what it means to be rooted to our culture and discover the hidden gem for weddings that is India. It can be the gorgeous palaces of Rajasthan or the warm comfort of South India, which has a variety of luxurious wedding destinations. Udaipur, for example, is one of the best wedding destinations anywhere in the world. From the Leela Palace to Fatehgarh, Udaipur has plenty of elegant places waiting to be the dream destination for your wedding. We ensure that the breathtaking wedding photos will be worth it all. Aside from the mainland, if a tropical wedding is what you dream of, Andaman and Nicobar islands, Kochi, or Goa are never a disappointment. Imagine azure skies, sandy beaches, crystal clear waters - perfect for a beach wedding. While most of the areas in these islands provide the desirable setting for a wedding, we encourage you to consider the Havelock Islands.

India is also home to several thousands of local artisans who have honed their craft close to perfection. Various dresses have been made using the finest techniques passed down from one generation to the next. From the classic silhouettes with contemporary modern twists made in Gujarat, to the hand woven fabrics with intricate embroidery made with the intricate techniques of Kutch, the list of regional crafts is endless. These artisans supply foreign brands as well as  several of the Indian celebrities with their wedding dresses, which is truly an upliftment of the Indian styles of clothing. Some of these magnificent creations are valued at more than 10 crore rupees purely for the quality and design they offer. Nowadays one can see that most wedding apparel is coherent to the Western style, we are seeing Indian sherwanis and lehengas being worn only not only by the most elite of the Indian population who are now setting a benchmark for us all by embracing our rich culture and supporting the local craftsmanship.
