Wedding Celebrations in Maldives

Say β€˜I do’ amidst the beautiful white sandy shores of the Maldives and mark an unforgettable day that you will treasure for a lifetime. With its relaxing topical climate, picturesque scenery and a romantic atmosphere, the Maldives has increasingly become a very popular destination for weddings. Celebrated in elegant grandeur and style, weddings in Maldives are exceptional each with a unique theme and fashion. Although hosting large banquets in ballrooms of hotels and resorts are a trend in the country, the in-vogue style is to exchange your vows by the beautiful beaches and make full use of this pristine island and the beauty it exudes.

In the Maldives, spas offer special Adam and Eve massages in the morning of the wedding to soothe and relax the couples’ body and soul enabling them to fully enjoy their day ahead. The traditional ceremony of a wedding commences just prior to the banquet. The bride and the groom are respectively attired in the typical white gown and the tailored full suits and commence the rituals by planting a coconut tree together as a depiction of their eternal love for each other. The ritual is conducted amidst the traditional dance tune played by hired local drummers which is followed by the final part of the ceremony where the couple proclaim their vows before a priest binding them together in holy matrimony.

Once the couple is legally husband and wife, it is traditional for the newlyweds to be served with fresh coconut water as a welcome drink. The celebrations begin by the cutting of the symbolic wedding cake and the serving of sizzling champagne followed by a gala banquet feast usually organized by the hosting hotel. The wedding parties go on late into the night with dancing, music and plenty of surprises for the newlyweds.

If you are planning to make this lifetime bond at this romantic paradise, the Anantara, Kihavah is just the place. One of the most luxurious Maldives resorts, this oasis provides a spectacular backdrop for this special day in addition to many comforts and privacy. A villa in Maldives such as the ones found at this resort would be perfect for a memorable honeymoon.
