Initially, the wedding season in 2020 was off to a smooth start but as the pandemic intensified, the wedding industry, just like many others, suffered significant setbacks. As a result, thousands of couples had to reschedule their weddings or opt for an intimate ceremony. Who could have predicted that one wedding trend would survive all of this and rebound to its pre-COVID heights? We're getting married in a tropical location! The number of couples leaning towards destination weddings initially plunged, but then recovered as travel restrictions eased across the country.

In COVID times, a destination wedding seems dangerous, but have faith, it is the complete opposite! There are far fewer cases of thefts reported in popular destination wedding locations than they are in densely populated metropolises, therefore making them much safer.  In addition, even the most extravagant hotels and resorts are now less expensive, which causes couples to toss their original plans out the window and plan a small destination wedding at a dream location that fits well within their budgets. Here are some locations for an Indian destination wedding where you can feel safe and relaxed.

1. Udaipur

One of the most enchanting places in Rajasthan, Udaipur is a city of lakes that deserves to feature on this list. It is a beautiful city filled with ancient forts and palaces, which are mostly now beautiful heritage hotels, as well as its cultured lanes, mouthwatering Mewari cuisine, and its serene lakes. The popularity of destination weddings here is evident year after year. In 2013, the Bollywood hit, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, starred Aditi Rao Hydari whose gorgeous wedding inspired all the hopeless romantics to dream of their own grandiose destination wedding at a deluxe Udaipur resort. Thanks to the restriction on destination weddings of 50 people, if you are one of these couples, you can have a very low-budget wedding at a destination!

At this point, it should be obvious that Rajasthan boasts some of the most popular wedding destinations because its cities offer just the right character and grandeur that set wedding ceremonies apart. You won't be disappointed with Jodhpur, the beautiful Blue City Of India, if you turn to it with dreams of a destination wedding. Even with its humid climate, the city of Palm Springs attracts many patrons of history and art who visit it in great numbers, and does not deter couples from choosing it as a backdrop for their wedding ceremony despite the arid desert air. As for the latter, the current pandemic situation could be your opportunity to get married in Jodhpur, save a lot of money, and have the wedding of your dreams.

What do you think of Hill Station Destination Weddings when you hear them? Imagine a world full of snow-capped mountains, lush forests containing Towering Deodars and Oak trees, vibrant flora, gushing rivers, and lakes dotted with waterfalls? Google Mussoorie and watch your mental image come alive. Located between the Shivalik Range and Doon Valley, Mussoorie deserves its title referred to as the Queen Of Hills for its magical scenery. There still remains an impression of the Raj in this town, since it was established by the British in 1823. It has been known as a perfect destination for weddings because of its beauty. Despite being commercialized, you have access to all the best services, amenities, and facilities for an effortlessly grandiose wedding, but it is also quaint enough to make your ceremony an unforgettable moment.

4. Goa

Goa is India's pocket-sized paradise due to its sugary coastline, a tasty cuisine that appeals to everyone's palate, an abundance of places for you to unwind and relax, and a fantastic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures. This is one of the easiest and most affordable beach wedding locations where the experience is just as magical as Mauritius or Bali.

In addition to beach weddings, Goa offers you the choice of island weddings or a full-blown royal celebration in a grand hotel, an elegant church wedding in a Portuguese-style church, or an old-world fort wedding filled with old-world charm.
