Ireland

This European beauty is the ideal location for those with the theme of a ‘Fairy-tale Wedding’. This land has masses of lush greenery, a mountainous landscape along with seaside villages and glorious castles and country manors. The place is full of awesome spots to walk down the aisle. The best time for your wedding in Ireland would be from May to September when the weather is just fine. Also, keep in mind that accommodation prices usually rise from October to March.

The Bahamas

A collection of 700 paradise islands for you to choose from is a pretty wide choice of locations. Nassau and Paradise Island are two of the most popular destinations. However, Exumas and Harbour Island are more mellow and quiet. The best part is that you could either choose to rent a whole island for your wedding or even treat your guests at big resorts and spas. It is advisable that you avoid having your wedding here from June through November because of storms and rainy weather.

Las Vegas

Despite being nicknamed ‘Sin City’, LA offers a whole lot when it comes to tying the knot here. It is one of the most unique wedding venues with its drive-through chapels and Elvis impersonators. Also, there are hotels and resorts in plenty that offer wedding packages for any budget. Guests are sure to be entertained even if they don’t bet! It is best to opt for spring or September and October when the summer heat is beginning to ease off. The first week in December may sometimes have good prices and availability.

Kuala Lumpur

Another famous location for weddings is Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. The city setting is quite intriguing if you are looking for an urban-themed wedding. Wedding in opulence with many luxury hotels like Berjaya Hotels and Resorts that offer various wedding packages makes things easy. The best months to avoid monsoons would be May to July when the weather just nice.

Before arriving in the Maldives

Before falling for the idea of having a Maldives island wedding, a great deal of research needs to be done on what it entails. There can be no legal ceremony here only a blessing.

The Ceremony

Exchanging vows and rings under an arch of flowers on a romantic location around the resort island before family and friends is preferred way to conduct the ceremony. Although how the couple is to arrive at the ceremony can be decided on later, it is in a decorated buggy, in a traditional boat, escorted by drummers or walking down a petal-strewn path.

Choosing your beach

A beach is not merely a beach! Yes there is sand and yes it is bordered by a vast expanse of ocean, but beaches do defer in character and this is true in Sri Lanka.

Bay Breeze

For anyone who loves a taste of pineapple and cranberry with vodka, the best choice of a cocktail is the Bay Breeze. Not surprisingly, there are some variations of this drink such as the Sea Breeze where grape juice is added instead of pineapple juice. You can try to change the taste with different flavoured vodkas.

Pina Colada

Pina Colada is one of the best tropical cocktails, bringing together the flavour of pineapple and coconut with a hunch of white rum or dark rum. The best mix of ingredients is 2 oz. of white rum, 3 oz. of pineapple juice, 1 ½ oz. of cream of coconut or coconut milk, and 1 cup of ice. An optional ¼ oz. of fresh lime juice can be added to enhance the flavour.

Island Exploration

Many of the islands that form the Maldives are uninhabited, so you and your special someone can embark on an iconic island-hopping adventure, becoming the sole-occupants of island after island.

Dive Beneath the Surface

Some of the best attractions the Maldives has to offer are found underneath her waters’ surface. From magnificent Manta Rays to colossal Whale Sharks to kaleidoscopic coral reefs, there’s so much to witness.

Experience a Couple’s Massage

This is definitely one of the most romantic experiences offered by more or less any luxury hotel in Maldives, with examples such as Velassaru Maldives. There’s nothing quite like you and your partner being gently escorted to a realm of bliss and tranquillity by a resort’s wellness experts.

Romantic Dinner Underwater

There are a number of underwater restaurants and/or night-clubs located throughout the Maldives, and these present one of the most unique opportunities to enjoy a romantic dinner with your partner, made even more special by the presence of countless marine animals floating above and around you. This is definitely an experience both of you won’t forget.

In an age where the cosmetics industry is ruling the markets, going all natural might have its benefits for the sensitive skinned souls.

 

Lavender
First of all, the smell itself will do wonders in soothing your nerves and calming you down. Furthermore, the properties of lavender oil reduce scarring; stretch marks, and wrinkles too. Lavender oil also has healing properties and can be used on insect bites and rashes. Most therapists in Sri Lanka use essential oils as a part of their treatments, and a typical spa hotel in Galle would have lavender in their treatments, for example.

 

Cranberry
The smell of this berry is sickly sweet and relaxes a person instantly. Cranberry essence is said to relieve joint pains and is, therefore, great oil for therapeutic massages.

 

Geranium
For the people with oily skin, geranium is your lifesaver! Spas and skin therapists swear by its wonders and most spas in tourist beach towns also use it now, like Tamarind Hill for instance. Geranium has antiseptic properties and helps prevent the build-up of sebum, the oils that help bacteria eat up your skin. Dermatitis, eczema, acne, and psoriasis are treated with this magical cure. As for therapy, geranium lightens up your mood, improves blood circulation and is a great cure for depression.
