Destination weddings have become an ‘It’ thing now. It all started when Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli got married in Italy, in 2017. Followed by another International destination wedding of the power couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in Lake Como, Italy in 2018. And, since then this saga of hosting an International destination wedding has become like a fever. However, finding an International destination for your big fat Indian wedding can be more daunting than you think. From picturesque mountains to white sandy beaches to vineyards, international wedding destinations have a lot to offer.
The enticing locations are not only exciting for the couple but for their wedding guests too. Because isi bahane hum bhi wo jagah ghum lenge!
Check out these fabulous International places for your destination wedding. Let’s get started:
1. Muscat, Oman
It is the capital and largest city of Oman, which is surrounded by mountains and deserts. But, who thought you could host a wedding in Muscat? Believe us a wedding beside the beach in Muscat is not a bad idea. The scenic view of mountains as a backdrop while you take the pheras on a beach is absolutely surreal. Muscat has some excellent resorts and hotels, to make your dream come true.

2. Thoi Town, Phu Quoc, Vietnam
A beautiful country in the South China Sea, Vietnam is popular for its beaches and rivers. The ancient charm of the country will pull you to explore it. And, hosting a wedding in an environment like this is a dream come true. Also, when you can have a theme wedding just like Kaabia Grewal the founder of Outhouse Jewellery had in Vietnam, the experience would be everlasting. We loved the backdrop of the beach in her wedding photos. Make sure to have a day wedding in Vietnam and you will create a fairy tale to remember.

Thailand is one international wedding place that needs no introduction. Known for its tropical beaches, royal palaces, ornate temples, Thailand has become a favorite International destination for weddings. Planning a destination wedding alongside the beach when the sun sets in the backdrop is absolutely magical. Many Indian couples have had a blast hosting a destination wedding in Thailand due to its location, hospitality and easy access.

4. Istanbul and Antalya, Turkey
Turkey has become the most popular international destination wedding place for Indians. Also, with Istanbul, Turkey being the preferred destination for the much-awaited wedding of Prenia Qureshi, it is slated to be big in the upcoming wedding season. A gossamer of culture and diversity, Turkey promises to be simply enchanting and grand. And, we believe a day wedding in Turkey with all the glam and dhol dhamaka is one extravagant affair nobody will forget.
