Tripoto

It's the wedding season and my feed is so full of gorgeous people in fabulous clothes at oh-so-stunning wedding venues. It's especially the destination weddings that are giving me all the FOMO. Do you agree? People are flying out of India to beachside destinations and some are travelling to Rajasthan for a royal wedding but we have seen it all. Haven't we? Looking for an offbeat destination wedding idea?

How about a destination wedding in the hills?

Yes, the mountains are calling and this time to celebrate your special day at your favourite locations. Here are some magnificent venues in the hills that are perfect for your dream destination wedding.

Wildflower Hall redefines luxury amidst the wilderness and it is hands-down the most stunningly located hotel in the Himalayas. At this luxurious setting you and your guests can spend your special day with a magnificent view of the snowcapped peaks. The interiors here will leave you charmed too. With a luxury dining restaurant, an outdoor terrace, the glass conservatory and crystal chandeliers lit alleys, it makes for quite an enviable destination wedding venue.

Need the best destination for your wedding day? It can't get better than the Kashmir Valley. The Lalit Grand Palace, Srinagar offers 113 palace rooms, over 4,000 square feet of banqueting space and a visually overwhelming location. The plush interiors and palatial rooms definitely create a flattering experience. This erstwhile home to the Maharajas is definitely one of the best picks for your special day.

Their tagline says get enchanted by heaven in heaven. Rightly put! In this hunt for best wedding destinations in India, Khyber Resort and Spa definitely deserves to be on the list. The hotel, mostly known as a popular spa resort, is also a great offbeat wedding venue. If you have imagined your wedding day in the lap of the hills, this property spread across 7 acres of a sylvan coniferous forest view of the Afrawat Peaks with 85 luxury suites can be your pick.

How you plan your wedding is definitely a reflection of your personality. If you love the peace and quiet of the forest and wish to start your new life in a private setting with loved ones, Paatlidun Safari Lodge is a great choice. The luxury and bush cottages accommodates more than 50 people. In the vicinity of the Corbett National Park, this venue is for those who love to go offbeat.  This is definitely for the ones who love the silent and dreamy affair and would love to party by the riverside at the end of your wedding.

Queen of the hills, Shimla is home to multiple heritage properties that secret hideaways for a perfect destination wedding. This 130 year old heritage hotel was once known for the spectacular ballroom dances it hosted. The Oberoi Cecil still holds on to that colonial charm with a touch of local Himachali hospitality. Away from the chaos of the cities, if you plan to spend your special day in an charming old-world ballroom, swaying to piano recitals, check it out! 

Wedding in Manali? Why not! Formerly known as Ambassador Resort, this luxury resort in Manali is at quite an enviable location near the mall road. The wide range of royal suites, rooms with a view and charming cottages give you a chance to accommodate as many of your loved ones as you wish. It can be your chance to bring your favorite people to your favorite location to celebrate your wedding day. ManuAllaya truly embodies the spirit of the hills and your wedding will not be left untouched of this special local experience.

Span Resort and Spa is my second pick for a dream destination wedding venue in Manali. This more than 4 decade old property is still one of the largest luxury resort in the town located by the banks of Beas River. The venue is surrounded by more than 12 acres of lush green walnut orchard and would definitely give an authentic close-to-nature look and feel to the whole wedding affair. Moreover the hotel's specialised wedding team can also help you plan it all.
