A scenic view, clear blue skies, bright and beautiful spring colours, garden-style outdoors surrounded by lounge cabanas or canopies, florals, outdoor cocktail bars, rustic photo booths and a hell lot of romantic summer breeze. Just imagine saying ‘I do’ during the beautiful Indian summers at a venue like this! So, how do you go about hosting this dreamy summer wedding?
It all begins with shortlisting the right venue! Indian summers can be super harsh in some parts of the country, however, there’s no need to fret. India has a lot to offer with its diverse landscapes.
While shortlisting the venue, the location’s weather conditions play an extremely important role for summer weddings, especially if couples would like to host outdoor events. Opting for lush green open lawns, preferably on the outskirts of cities is the way to go. Ensuring cool outdoor spaces with cabanas or canopies not only provides guests with respite from the heat but also elevates the look and feel of the wedding. Couples can also organise sundowner weddings to tackle the harsh summer weather! This also gives a romantic and breezy touch to the ceremony. Plus, imagine some bohemian decor and fairy lights creating the most majestic ambience during sunset.
While most couples opt for a destination wedding at hill stations during the summers, for couples who would like to organise weddings in and around the city, we spoke to Weddingz.in to know the top 5 venues they’d recommend to organise the perfect Summer wedding well within city limits and here’s what they suggested.
1. Beachy Affair At Goa
If a fairy tale wedding is what you want, then what’s better than sharing this beautiful moment at the beach with the love of your life, and your closest family and friends? Goa offers a ton of clean beaches, resorts hotels and the perfect weather conditions for a breezy sundowner wedding. The best part? There’s always a lot of love in the air in Goa!
Overlooking the pristine Morjim Beach and surrounded by a breath-taking lawn, The Regalia Alphonso Beach Resort and Spa is perfect for your dream romantic beach wedding. This charmingly quaint resort offers guests luxurious yet affordable rooms, delicious multi-cuisine meals, enticing drinks and spa services for rejuvenating, relaxing, and thoroughly enjoyable experience for you and your guests.
2. Farm Feast At Delhi
Up north, nothing beats the idea of a beautiful and rustic farmhouse wedding! Farm weddings make for the most sultry venues with their picture-perfect atmosphere, almost out of a Bollywood movie. Couples can play with beautiful hanging lightings, drapes and a charming backdrop full of greenery.
Situated in New Delhi, Essex Farms is a vibrant open-air venue with multiple party spaces and lush lawns—perfect for an evening wedding reception. It also offers multiple locations within the same premises, allowing the couple to host functions with a wide range of set-ups.
3. Insta-Worthy Resorts At Lucknow
Be it an intimate gathering or a lavish function, resorts offer a charming backdrop that can range from the uber-luxurious to an intimate boutique setting. These properties are usually located at a convenient distance for the majority of your local guests. Typically spread over a large property, parking space is the last thing people have to worry about. Creating an eye-catching ambience is the primary motive of resorts, so if you are interested in something aesthetically pleasing you know, a resort wedding is the one. Chinmay Resort in Lucknow is a good option for grand as well as intimate functions.
4. Vouch For Country Clubs Of Ahmedabad
Exclusivity is what pops in one’s head by the mere mention of a club. However, most clubs are now open for wedding bookings, providing couples with an increased set of options to choose from. For instance, The Belvedere Golf and Country Club in Ahmedabad is a picturesque location for a grandiose summer wedding under the open skies.
This luxurious country club is home to multiple lawns and a large number of banquet halls, making it a picture-perfect setting for weddings, receptions, sangeet, mehendi, haldi and engagement ceremonies! Its beautiful exteriors, surrounded by a pool area will have guests awestruck. What’s more? If you have multiple events planned on a single day, most of the clubs offer complimentary changing rooms for guests, thereby saving commute time.
5. Flower Power At Chandigarh
Nothing embodies the spirit of an open-air wedding other than a garden with tall trees and a canopy of beautiful flowers. This venue is the answer to all your event-related worries—it offers professional support in terms of caterer, decorators, vendors, planners, among other wedding-related vendors. All one needs to do post-booking, is to invite one’s guests to the grand soirée.
Without a question, the Iris Garden in Chandigarh is perfect for those who love sunsets and wish to host an intimate celebration with close family and friends. We recommended a botanical or floral themed decor to bring alive the natural summer aesthetic of this beautiful wedding venue.
