Getting hitched soon?

ItÔÇÖs magical when your whirlwind romance blooms into a beautiful wedding. Most love birds today prefer a barefoot bash type wedding instead of a conventional one. Recent trends show that destination wedding is the in-thing with couples choosing exotic memorable weddings over elaborate societal obligations.

Great news is that destination weddings are getting more enticing with extended honeymoon option, lower cost and ability to spend quality time with closest family and friends. Now couples can plan their wedding anywhere around the world. Right from pristine beaches, game reserves and historic houses, the possibilities are endless.

Below are our personal favourites to seal the deal!

Exchanging vows amidst turquoise waters, white sands, lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls and volcanic mountains, may sound like a wedding in paradise!

Multicultural Hawaii provides you one of the best spots to get married irrespective of the theme or style of wedding. Islands such as Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island offer several wedding options for couples to choose from.

Barcelona, Spain

Fancy getting married in Neo-Gothic castles, iconic museums or at architectural landmarks with a panoramic view of the city? Then plan your wedding at Barcelona, a jewel in the Mediterranean crown!

A significant cultural centre famous for its Romanesque, Gothic and Modernist architecture, Barcelona is filled with stunning landscapes such as the romantic coves at Costa Brava, beautiful beaches at Costa Dorada and the majestic Pyrenees Mountains.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Looking for an eccentric yet hip wedding by the black sand beaches or where the tectonic plates meet? Then Iceland is your spot, with geothermal pools, ice hotels and volcanic mountains.

If you are blissfully unaware of this Nordic beauty, then itÔÇÖs high time you include Iceland to your wedding destination bucket.

Masai Mara, Kenya

Have you ever dreamt of saying ÔÇ£I doÔÇØ in the presence of grazing gazelles, playful cubs, magnificent elephants and happy giraffes?

Then go ahead, tie the knot in the presence of natureÔÇÖs greatest spectacle at Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. The wedding would be conducted in beautiful camps and is totally safe.

Dubai, UAE

Dubai never ceases to impress the world with its luxury wedding scenario at ultramodern hotels and resorts. However the exotic charm of a simple desert wedding is undeniable, when planned at the right time of the year.

Getting married in a Bedouin camp by the oasis, against the breath-taking back drop of fire torches and the canopy of stars is beyond romantic.

To avoid food mishaps, go local with banquet preferences. Play modest on the decorations so that the natural beauty of the locale is not tarnished. And it saves money too. Limit your guests to only the people you want to spend this best moment of your life.

Since you will be traveling to a foreign destination to get married, reach out to a trustworthy forex service provider for good foreign exchange rates. There are also several prepaid multi-currency travel cards that come with great features viz. free insurance plans, ATM withdrawals, POS transactions etc. You could also pre-load these cards and give them to your guests to be used at the destination.

Plan well ahead and donÔÇÖt stress over trivial details. Remember youÔÇÖve come half-way round the world to realise your faire-tale!
