The Sultanate of Oman is an option that rarely ever used to pop up off the top of one's head when looking for an interesting place for a destination wedding. But that is quickly changing and for good reason. This Middle Eastern State is a great blend of modern conveniences and facilities, history, natural beauty and delicious flavours. Oman can be the perfect wedding destination for those looking for a beautiful touch of eastern exorcism and charm!
If you would like a more bustling and convenient setting, the well connected capital of Muscat is a great option. Not only will you find urban conveniences but also beautiful flourishes that are deeply rooted in history and tradition. Eye catching mosques, forts, markets and more are yours to explore either in or close to the city, as are mountains, coasts and other natural jewels. Areas like the stunning desert area of Wahiba Sands, the Bandar Khayran marine reserve and the mountain range of the Jebel Shams are also a delight to experience.
World class hotels, spas and resorts can serve as wedding venues and the plethora of activities available like river cruising, desert stays, shopping, water sports and more make it a fun getaway for your guests as well. From white sand beaches and turtle reserves to colourful bazaars and gorgeous mosques, a destination wedding here will definitely be a uniquely charming cultural experience.
With flights from both Delhi and Mumbai to Muscat being under 3 hours, it is definitely one of the easier trips to make. Keep in mind that much like in India, summers in Oman can be scorching hot during the day time; therefore it might be better suited to winter weddings in November and December.
