South Asian Wedding Venues: How to Choose the Perfect One
Hotels are one of the most convenient options for a South Asian wedding as they accommodate a long list of guests and can meet a lot of needs. They are also all-in-one event spaces with indoor seating, ballrooms, suites, outdoor gardens, and pool areas. Which gives you the convenience of choosing the setting that best fits your needs and wedding day vision.
More often than not, your South Asian wedding planner will suggest a banquet hall. It’s the most adjustable option, often located inside the city or in the immediate outskirts. With a hall well-equipped, a team ready to serve, and a menu all dished out–what more could you ask for?
Palaces and Forts
If you’re looking for an ultimate Indian wedding experience, rich in royalty and equipped with the ornaments of history, architecture, and culture, a palace or fort is your go-to wedding venue! Most Indian brides dream of such a place for their wedding celebration–a venue fit for royalty!
Not all South Asian weddings need to be huge. So if you are looking for something more intimate where you can celebrate with your closest friends and family on a personal level, we recommend looking into a private wedding venue. Think about places like you or a friend or family member’s backyard, or even a plant nursery! Don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
Beaches and Islands
Many South Asian brides are now opting for Beaches and Islands weddings. And if you too want a modern-day wedding experience with your South Asian traditions, go for this venue.
Places of Worship
A holy space can be a perfect venue for your traditional South Asian wedding. In fact, in many South Asian religions, the main rituals take place in those places of worship. For instance, The Anand Karaj Ceremony of Sikhs takes place at a Gurudwara. Also, instead of arranging a separate mandap in your banquet hall, you can have your ‘Saat Pheras’ in an actual mandir and then arrange your reception elsewhere.
Open gardens offer a very modest and subtle South Asian wedding venue. They’re large enough to accommodate your multiple-day ceremonies with a dream backdrop of flowers and a picturesque view under the perfect lighting. They’re mostly located on the outskirts of your residential area and are a perfect alternative to a destination wedding!
Farmhouses are a perfect go-to venue for couples looking for big celebrations and huge accommodations. They’re different from hotels with regards to their more homely and intimate vibe. Farmhouses are perfect for your pre-wedding ceremonies like Haldi, mehndi, sangeet, and others, and to make it even better… the starry view that only a country home can provide will set your South Asian wedding venue apart!
