6 Stunning Venues To Host Your Destination Wedding In Goa

G – Going; O – on; A – an adventure

To go to Goa is like going on an adventure. The place is a coastal paradise. Beautiful white sand beaches and tourists from all over the world, adventure sports, sun bathing, rave parties and exotic cuisines. With so much to offer, it doesn’t come as a surprise that destination wedding in Goa is becoming increasingly popular among couples who want to have a fun, beach-side wedding.

Imagine A Wedding In Goa

A resort overlooking the beach with close family and friends present. The ceremony, a traditional Hindu affair with the mandap in the middle of the garden surrounded by all the rooms except to the west which leads to the beach. There is no baaraat but the friends indulge in some dancing. So do the parents of the couple and the grandparents. The food is a mixture of Indian and Italian cuisine. A delight to the taste buds. The decorations are just perfect. Cream sofas in the garden! A green carpet on the west with more of the same sofas! The mandap has a red carpet with a gold border. The four pillars on the mandap are all decorated with a mixture of cream and gold drapes flowing from one corner to the other. It’s night time, so there are halogen lamps from all corners of the resort focusing on the mandap and the garden.

The groom looks dashing in a blue bandh-gala with a bit of gold on the cuffs, neck and around the buttons. The bride looks stunning in a beautiful pink lehenga with cream borders. The ceremony itself is beautiful. The pandit ji chanting the holy verses, the bride and groom taking their 7 steps around the fire on a breezy night!

Awww.. what a pretty picture.
