By  | 

Outdoor Indian weddings are quite popular these days and there is nothing new about them really. Many couples choose to tie the knot in the bride or groom’s parents’ backyard, garden or even in banquet halls offering the facilities for an outdoor party or reception.

A common misconception regarding outdoor Indian weddings is that they are primarily the domain of the daring couples or the financially limited families. However, this thought is changing: modern wedding guests know that outdoor Indian weddings can be every bit as luxurious and elegant as weddings held in palaces, forts or five-star hotels. Today, outdoor Indian weddings are selected not just for their uniqueness but also for the couples’ love and reverence for nature and its beauty.

Who chooses outdoor Indian weddings?


It is not just couples who love hiking, trekking etc that are choosing to get married outdoors. In fact: research has shown that couples in the western countries who choose to tie the knot outdoors are a diverse lot. They do have one thing in common, though: they all want a unique wedding which they are confident of carrying out with great style and panache.

Naturally, couples must not choose to go this route just because they want to do something different than their friends and family members. They should also be passionate about the place they choose to get married in and be willing to shoulder the difficulties that are likely to arise when planning outdoor weddings. Still, with the help of experienced wedding planners that are experts in outdoor Indian wedding planning, there is no reason why one cannot have a flawlessly beautiful ceremony!

Outdoor Indian weddings are also perfect for couples looking to have nontraditional or informal ceremonies.
