I will be a little biased here since I am from Jaipur and have traveled to most of the cities in Rajasthan. Udaipur stands out to be an extremely beautiful city. In the daytime, you come across multiple lakes reflecting the glittering sun rays, which is honestly a mesmerizing view. And at night the thousands of shimmering lights emanating from the breathtaking royal palaces add to the magical wholeness.

Purity is synonymous to Rishikesh. A special bond like marriage, which is built upon pureness, can find no better place to spark off than the city where river Ganga flows. The famous Hotel Ganga Kinare is a very popular location to tie your knot and hold the rituals. More places like Haveli Hari Ganga and Hotel Ganesha Inn can offer a great stay. Being situated in a hilly area, the climate tends to stay pleasantly cool during the summer months and colder in the winter months. Rishikesh is filled with a lot of temples and hence the historic culture, holy blessings, and pure chants float around in the very environment of the location. Enjoy your traditional wedding here. The exclusiveness of this location will certainly make your marriage a special and memorable event while bringing your guests back to their roots.
These are my top three picks for a destination wedding, which definitely not offers a very wide variety but the most handpicked selection. These are the destinations not everyone thinks and therefore are very unique. You have a range from forts, lakes, and, palaces to exceptional and exotic beaches to traditionally rooted cities. They are even suited to most seasons and do not touch extreme temperatures all year round, which opens you to a lot of options. That being said, I am sure your hometown is no less than any other destination. It would offer a completely different sentimental value. However, destination weddings are where more sentimental moments can be made. You can create your own new warmth in a location away from home and make it the wedding you have always desired of!
