Dream and drool over a Bollywood style royal wedding? Want to sweep your clan off their feet while you get hitched? Drop everything and head to the hinterlands of Rajasthan! Dotted with resplendent regal palaces, majestic forts and romantic gardens, Rajasthan is the ultimate destination for a fairy tale wedding. Wedding venues in the state are diverse and include age-old havelis, royal palaces, and forts that are converted to 5-star hotels. Here are some handpicked places for your dream big fat Indian wedding:

Sprawled in 47 acres of tranquil, landscaped gardens and scenic backdrop, this palace is a perfect place for having your nuptial functions. Jaipur’s foremost royal residence exudes elegance and regal feel in its rooms, courtyards and lawns. The palace has alluring interiors which have hand-carved latticework and cenotaphs. The palace hotel also boasts of as many as ten major pre-wedding in its premises.

Known among the largest private residences in the world, the Umaid Bhavan Palace is one of the most iconic buildings of the country. Spread across 26 acres of lush land, the 347-room palace is now managed by the Taj Group. With colonial architecture and flamboyant lavish interiors, extravagance and splendour are written all over the place! The palace offers 4 indoor venues and 6 outdoor venues to cater to grand weddings. And that's not all! The palace also serves lip smacking Rajasthani delicacies in its restaurants.

Originally built as the guardian fort of the capital city, the Jaigarh Fort is perched at the hilltop in Amber near Jaipur. The fort houses the biggest cannon of the world, a foundry, an armoury and a museum. This sprawling fort is an example of great craftsmanship and has seen a number of weddings under the starry skies. The hotel also has an imposing view of the Aravalli’s and the city of Jaipur from its various vantage points.

If getting hitched in isolation amidst sand dunes excites you, we’ve found the right match for you! Every nook and corner of the Suryagarh Palace has a story to tell. Though the palace is located in the middle of nowhere, the hospitality staff ensures all your needs for modern amenities are met. Featuring rustic architecture, the hotel boasts of numerous terraces, pavilions, and banquets, ensuring that there's a different venue for every event. The hotel staff also organises high tea in the middle of the desert – a surreal spot just a few minutes’ drive from the hotel.

A wedding at Udaipur's Jagmandir Palace is the epitome of luxury. The experience starts with a royal procession to the palace in decorated boats across the lake. Once inside, the place transports you to another era, recapturing the essence of royalty. Apart from exquisite stay options, the 17th-century palace also features  an all-day café, multi-cuisine restaurant, bar and a spa. To top that, the island that houses the palace offers an encompassing view of the City Palace, Lake Palace and the Aravalli ranges. This palace is tailor-made to host multiple wedding ceremonies and can accommodate up to 150 guests.
