Get Wed Aboard The Maharajas Express- In Luxury

By  | 

What’s the best way to treat your foreign wedding guests to a trip that combines being a part of wedding festivities as well as a tour of India? Well, you could opt for a destination wedding but that would mean seeing only one specific city or a place, and that’s kind of limiting in a way. So, what’s the next best option if you have plenty of money to spare and all you want to do is to treat your guests to a memorable holiday that they won’t forget anytime soon?

Welcome aboard the Maharajas Express which can be yours for 8 whole days at a cost of only Rs 5.5 crore!

So, why should you consider getting married aboard the Maharajas Express when you may just as well have a beach wedding in Goa at a mere fraction of that cost? Well, for starters, there are 24 coaches in total and these have 20 deluxe cabins, 18 junior suites, four premium suites and 1 Presidential suite. Besides that, you’ll enjoy:

Think about it! It’ll make for a fantastic story to tell your kids someday and why go with what’s trending when you have a much more exclusive option at hand? Imagine this- you could also get written about in the papers and earn your many minutes of fame. After all, how many yet to be married couples can afford to think nothing of a wedding that’ll set them back by a few crores?

Only 88 passengers are allowed on board the Maharajas Express, so if your ideal wedding included a small guest list, then now you have a great reason to let guests know why they weren’t invited in the first place. With just 88 passengers allowed (think of your photographer and other people who will be coming with you), privacy gets top priority here.

Your guests and you are in for an awesome sightseeing tour which covers some beautiful destinations in North India. The Heritage of India tour begins from Mumbai and covers Ajanta, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Jaipur, Ranthambore and Agra before reaching Delhi. If you would like to travel by taking a different route on board the Maharajas Express, then the authorities would be more than happy to oblige.

Great Service

Luxury trains such as the Maharajas Express are famed for their great service, food and comfort. You can actually have a non-stop wedding party for 8 days without worrying about the quality of food, cutlery and a 100 other details that wedding planners often have to deal with. Besides, you get to spend so much of quality time with your loved ones uninterrupted.

So, is it worth having a wedding on wheels? We certainly think so. Indian weddings easily run into crores (no wonder they’re called big, fat ceremonies) but the winning combination of a tour merged with wedding festivities seems to be an opportunity that’s too good to pass up.
