MALTA

It’s so much better to pick a destination that is not mainstream Europe, right? Malta is known for its tranquility and quaintness, so will be the right destination to take your troop and say your vows. Adventurous couples can pick this destination for their honeymoon, as it’s also one of the best diving spots in the world. Furthermore, if what you’re looking for is historic appeal, this is the perfect place as according to UNESCO, Valletta — capital of Malta — is ‘one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world‘. Imagine a fairytale wedding at a place like this.

RAJASTHAN

If Priyanka Chopra can bring down an entire groom squad from America to get married in Udaipur, what’s stopping you? Rajasthan, undoubtedly, has some of the best cities for a destination wedding in India, given our unabashed love for everything regal. From lake palaces in Udaipur to Bikaner and even Jodhpur, Rajasthan, especially in the light winters, will be an easy yet memorable place to get married.

MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA

The celeb-studded destination has witnessed the weddings of Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger, and even of Gwyneth Paltrow. This tucked-away seaside paradise, located in Santa Barbara, is known for its many hikes and trails. From wellness treats for bachelor trips to beautiful properties for your big day, Montecito will make your “I Do” even more memorable.

MARRAKECH

Jessica Alba celebrated her 38th birthday in Marrakech this year and is all praises for this city of Morocco, also one of the most sought-after wedding destinations in the world. Marrakech also doubles up as the perfect bachelor trip spot for the boys who want to go beyond partying by going for desert tours for a day or a hot air balloon ride.

COORG

Imagine a wedding at an emerald coffee estate. If the desert is not your choice, Coorg is an Indian marvel worth considering. Coorg, known for its coffee plantations and various luxury resorts with provisions for weddings, has made it possible to enjoy a budgeted, domestic yet peaceful wedding with woodland-inspired mood boards, virgin natural surroundings and the smell of coffee.

PRAGUE

For the ones who want to pick mainstream Europe and play safe, Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, is one of the most budget-friendly yet absolutely delightful destinations to pick. Romance, literature, and art — all in one place. Book a grand resort for your wedding day or if you’d rather honeymoon here, take romantic strolls in the castle of Vysehrad or a ride in one of those open-top red vintage cars with a chauffeur-cum-guide or visit the Vincini Altan open-air vineyard for some classic, old school love feels.

AMALFI

Anywhere in Italy is beautiful, but the Amalfi coast stands out for its coastline and luxurious resorts overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Amalfi has classy hotels for a grand destination wedding, but if you’d rather be just you two, a customised itinerary and tour that will take you through the small seaside towns or a sunset cruise on the coast with a picnic will be spot on for your honeymoon.

MADAGASCAR

An island wedding? Yes please. Madagascar can be an offbeat wedding destination thanks to its blue and green crystal clear waters and mountains. But also, Madagascar has actually become one of the hottest destinations for honeymooners. There are exclusively child-free hotels that will give you all the benefits of being just by yourself. Madagascar offers a plethora of options from luxurious lodges for the stay-in duo to the couple that wants to take boat trips (you can go to the Radama and Mitsio island), or the adventurous honeymooners that want to learning to surf or explore jungle treks.

AMSTERDAM

The first city to come to anyone’s mind when thinking of a destination for a bachelor trip is Amsterdam, and boy, will the groom thank you or what? A party city known for its “no rules is the rule” culture, Amsterdam’s nightclubs, pubs and restaurants, beer crawls and even the opera would be a trip full of entertainment for your crew.

RIO DE JANEIRO

Remember Copacabana? Rio De Janeiro’s nightlife scenes are super attractive. Clubs, bars, live music… you name it. If your party dates match with that of the Carnival, nothing like it. You’ll always be “the guy who went to the Carnival for his bachelor party and lost his shit”, which only makes your party more memorable.
