Welcome lovebirds! If you’ve ever dreamt of saying “I do” against the backdrop of secluded shores and swaying palms, the Maldives is the perfect place for a wedding that’s straight out of a fairytale. Before you embark on this magical journey, here are some things to keep in mind that will make your big day an affair to remember.
Before jetting off to the Maldives, bear in mind that the ceremony isn’t legally binding for non-residents. Many couples thus opt for a legal union back home, turning their ceremony at this enchanting destination into a dreamy vow renewal on the shores of paradise. What’s more, once done, you can immediately kick-start an unforgettable honeymoon on a private island!
In the Maldives, destination weddings go hand in hand with a ceremony on an idyllic beach. However, some private resorts like OBLU SELECT Lobigili take it a step further. Imagine exchanging vows on a heart-shaped sandbank for that extra bit of romance and seclusion. Such properties even provide something more unique, like the chance to say ‘I do’ in an underwater venue for an extraordinary celebration!
Choose the right resort, and a dedicated wedding coordinator becomes your fairy godparent ensuring everything is in readiness! It can include a beachside altar with floral décor, the beat of traditional Boduberu drummers, and a master of ceremony guiding you through your special day. Cap it off with cutting a three-tier wedding cake, popping a bottle of Champagne, and toasting to a lifetime together.
You can enhance your celebration with bespoke wedding packages in Maldives that go beyond the ceremony. Imagine a candlelit dinner on the beach, a four-course feast paired with fine wines, while the bed at your villa will be adorned with romantic touches. The morning after, revel in the intimacy of an in-villa floating breakfast in the pool and a private massage for couples to set the mood for your journey into marital bliss!
