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.

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.

For the more adventurous amongst you, participate in a thrilling bout of wind-surfing, parasailing, water-skiing and other adrenaline-pumping activities, which help heighten the anticipation and excitement of the big day.

Your wedding will be recreated out of a fairytale to fulfil your wildest and most romantic expectations. Each Maldives resort offers a diverse array of activities and perks, but among those, you will get to enjoy a sunset, candle-lit dinner after the ceremony, indulge in a lavish spa treatment for two, enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne, and even plant a coconut tree as a symbol of your love growing within the passage of time. Your ceremony will be heralded by traditionally attired drummers and delicately clad maidens sprinkling rose petals down the sandy aisle before you and your partner walk up the path together to declare your ever-lasting love for each other.
