The 5 Best Outdoor Wedding Destinations in India That You Must Consider!

There is something about having a destination wedding that is totally incomparable to one in your city. It’s somehow more romantic, more away from everyday realities and filled with only the people you love. Also, you can choose idyllic destinations across the country and literally make your dream Pinterest board come true. So if you too are planning to have a destination wedding, here are the 5 best wedding destinations in India you MUST consider.

We’ve made sure they’re not your usual suspects, but truly off-beat and special options for an outdoor wedding. 

Andaman & Nicobar 

These secluded Islands can be the perfect backdrop for a couple looking for an outdoor wedding that looks like it’s come out of the centrefold of a travel magazing. Untouched beaches, gorgeous blue waters, calm and peace and enough rest and relaxation to go around—what else could you want?

Pros: It’s going to be as private as you want, and if you’re getting married in peak season, you definitely won’t see another dozen weddings around you. 

Cons: Andamans aren’t the easiest place to get to and your guests may have some trouble finding flight connections and it may be costly. 

Bhubaneshwar & Puri

Yes, you read right. And no, we’re actually serious. These temple towns are actually a gorgeous place to tie the knot. They’re relatively unexplored and have some beautiful resorts to choose from. There’s also a lot of delicious food, sightseeing and stunning temple architecture that can add oodles of charm to your outdoor wedding. 

Pros: The Puri beach has some amazing options to choose from and you’re in one of the holiest places in the country, which could only mean more blessings. 

Cons: It’s not the first choice for couples looking at a 7-star experience or extreme comforts. 


For all you hill babies, Gulmarg is definitely one of the top wedding destinations in India. This absolutely stunning hill station is called paradise for a reason—it literally is! The unbelievable Himalayas as a backdrop, snowy slopes and around and aromatic Kashmiri spices will ensure your guests never forget this celebration. 

Pros: If you’re a couple that enjoys the cold, and are looking to have an outdoor wedding, there is nothing more stunning you could opt for

Cons: The area tends to have a volatile political environment so you have to be sure things are safe before you plan. 


People always talk about weddings in Kerala, but we’re pretty sure we’re the first ones to say Chennai, and we mean it. Home to an untapped and gorgeous coastline, armed will all the possible amenities you need and sprinkled with luxury hotels, Chennai has everything you need to make your wedding unforgettable. Add Kanjeevaram saris, gold jewellery and beautiful silver to the mix, and even your trousseau shopping will be sorted. 

Pros: It is very well connected and very easy for your guests to reach. You’ll also have access to all services you want. 

Cons: The best resorts for weddings are on the ECR and that could be a bit of a drive from the airport. 


This one just had to make it to the list. It may not be unconventional, but it’s still the most aspirational destination for any couple looking to have a royal wedding. And it’s always going to be a top wedding destination in India. From head-turning palace hotels to a ridiculous definition of luxury, Udaipir has it all. 

Pros: There’s no cite better trained to give you the wedding of your dreams

Cons: It’s going to burn a serious hole in your pocket!
