Wedding in Jaipur

Known as the ‘Pink City’, Jaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan and is just about a couple of hours and about an hour away by flight from major cities like Mumbai and Delhi respectively. Home to stunning architecture and plenty of old world charm, Jaipur offers couple lots of wedding venue options to choose from. Grand hotels, plush palaces, temples and historical sites, this city has it all in terms of what a grand wedding would require. If regal is what you would expect from your wedding, having a destination wedding in Jaipur may be the thing for you.

Considering the beautiful buildings there, your first tough task would be to choose from the many possible wedding venues. If queenly is what you are going for why not head straight to the charming, centuries old palaces. A lot of these refurbished palaces are not only luxurious hotels but play host to big wedding parties with provisions for accommodation, functions like theSangeet and Mehndi, honeymoon and post wedding bookings and also arrange for cultural programs, caterers, decorators etc. Some popular venues are the Rambagh Palace (now a Taj Group heritage hotel), Oberoi Raj Vilas, the Jal Mahal Palace, the grand haveli Raj Palace, Shahpura House, the Samode Palace (a little over 40kms from Jaipur) or the landmark City Palace. You could also consider a luxurious royalty themed hotel like the Oberoi Rajvilas, close to Jaipur. Another beautiful option is the Kanak Vrindavan Gardens at the feet of the Nandgarh Hills. This mythological valley is also considered to be holy and spiritual. Most of the heritage and luxury hotels come with stunning backdrops, widespread provisions and plenty of different spaces for  destination weddings.

Another big consideration would be the accommodation for your guests. While you are probably okay with spending a bomb for the actual ceremonies and venue itself, you can save on the costs for putting up guests. Since with destination weddings comes the responsibility for finding hotels for your guests, you can look for lower priced hotels close to your venue and have the wedding party stay at the venue itself. Make sure you plan the transportation well in advance so everyone can be there in time for the functions, cultural programs and parties.

A wedding in Jaipur can be planned with all the pomp and opulence you want coupled with modern conveniences you need. Touches like planning a desert tour, shopping excursions and elephant rides for your attendees can make it all the more special. Do remember recreating the splendor of eras gone by definitely doesn’t come cheap….start budgeting and you can star in your own fairytale beginning.
