Off-beat Wedding Destinations Near Delhi

When someone says destination weddings, the first few names that pop-up in our minds in India are Goa, Jaipur, and Udaipur. But, off late, many couples are going beyond the popular spots and opting for places that are less known and tucked far away from the hustle and bustle of routine city life.

Whatever destination you choose for your wedding, you can make your wedding planning easier with online wedding planning sites like Wedmegood.com. Here, you can find wedding venues in Delhi and destinations near Delhi. Not just Venues, you can also find best wedding photographers, makeup artists, and other wedding vendors online.

Here, I round up four such destinations for you to consider if you’re planning a wedding.

Yes, the place is known exclusively for Jim Corbett National Park ! If you’re thinking of having a quaint woodland, sundowner wedding, then there’s no better place than Corbett. Imagine a mandap overlooking the mountains with the River Kosi running alongside the venue. Could there be anything more romantic? Or maybe a Christian wedding in a forest with an arched altar made of twigs, branches, and ferns in this beautiful lap of nature. The place is so enchanting that decoration isn’t really necessary, it can be kept low-key to let the natural beauty shine through.

The surest way to have a Pinterest-worthy wedding where all your guests wouldn’t get tired of re-pinning all the wedding photographs? Get married in the picturesque Naukuchiatal. It is six hours away from New Delhi and is flanked by hills, the woods, and a serene lake. A unique, under-the-radar venue with lush greens in every direction you set your eyes–it has all the right components for an intimate, magical Indian wedding. Like Robert Frost said, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”

Located just a stone’s throw (40 minutes to be exact) from Gurgaon, The Westin is such a breathtaking location that your wedding photographer won’t have to put in much of an effort to capture an album full of wonderful pictures. The pool is an excellent backdrop to an outdoor Mehendi function, the suites are luxurious, and guests can also get themselves pampered at the spa. One look at the property and you’d want to pack your bags, gather your nearest and dearest loved ones and have the wedding of your dream here.
