Romance is always in the air in the Maldives; the island offers the perfect setting for a honeymoon and even a wedding. If you are thinking of saying ‘I do’ why not do it in style under a starlit canopy. The weather conditions in Maldives are perfect for a wedding ceremony, the view of the beach is spectacular and your guests will simply love digging their toes into the sand while they watch you walk down the aisle. You do not have to worry about the logistics of organizing your wedding ceremony because most of the hotels have package deals for such occasions.

Package deals include hair and makeup artists, a wedding photo shoot done by a professional photographer, floral decorations, champagne and wedding cake. Sometimes they throw in a couple of extras like a candlelit dinner after the ceremony and breakfast for the couple in a beach villa. All you have to do is send out the invitations and ask your guests to come over to Maldives.

Couples have the option of getting a wedding planner which is a burden off their shoulders. The planner will get in touch with all the service providers and ensure that everything goes according to schedule. The difference in having a wedding in Maldives is that you can include some of the local rituals for your ceremony. The ‘Bodu Katheeb’ or island chief can act as your efficient and perform traditional Maldivian rituals. A Maldivian drum performance is also a great addition if you want that traditional local feeling.

The best time for a wedding is in the evening because the air is much cooler. The most romantic ceremonies are the ones that begin just before the sun sets. Most often a Maldives resort will arrange for a few local practices to be included in your event. For instance, some hotels offer a coconut tree planting ceremony to celebrate the love between the couple. Maldives luxury resorts have their own private beach area making it an ideal location for a beach ceremony. Cocoa Island Maldives can be recommended as an ideal place to tie the knot and begin your new adventures together in this tropical island paradise.

Looking to combine your honeymoon with a trip to an island paradise where exotic adventures await? Then definitely put Bali on your list when planning your honeymoon! Couples in search of a luxury resort Bali in which to celebrate this exciting new chapter in their lives can consider The Laguna Resort & Spa Nusa Dua Bali.

Nature lovers looking for some outdoor fun on their honeymoon can trek or cycle along the countryside amidst lush green paddy fields, stunning mountains and rustic villages. You can also look to visit some of the island’s ancient temples and witness age old rituals and customs that let one get a true sense of the local culture.

That once in a lifetime moment when you say ‘I Do’, it has to be only at the most extraordinary and unique venue. The memories last a lifetime and the photographs and videos live on for generations to relate a tale of true love; thus the setting has to be perfect and the proceedings have to be flawless. The Balinese beach of Nusa Dua where one finds exotic romancing and intimacy is a fitting location for the purpose.

The Nusa Dua Beach is a graceful stretch of powdery sand that looks heavenly and inviting; the ocean is tranquil, gorgeously azure and provides rhythmic lulls to the atmosphere. The platform on which you exchange vows can either be placed on this golden and pure sand or on a patch of jade green grass at the border of the beach, either way the sea will be the backdrop of all the photographs and each time you turn to look at your better half, the sea waves will gush from behind you.

The Indonesians have their own style of marriage ceremonies so expect a bit of a local twist which provides a refreshing deviation from the traditional ceremonies that people are accustomed to. The wedding registrar will appear on site along with a bandwagon of other professionals who will make sure your fairytale ending is achieved. The musicians will play tunes that are familiar to you and your merry making guests are likely to echo them soon, but everyone will have an opportunity to discover the Indonesian vibes when they play something that is really from Bali. Local children will attend in their own traditional costumes to add colour to your celebrations and if you so wish to, one may even choose to have a few of them as your flower girls or page boys.

Let your dream wedding come alive at a Nusa Dua resort where the locals are waiting to be a part of your special day and give you a luxury resort Bali experience like no other. Honeymoon getaways, such as Laguna Resort & Spa Nusa Dua Bali is an idyllic venue for your ceremonial proceedings as well.
