Offbeat Wedding Venues for You to Consider

Editors posted on 30 September

Hot Air Balloons

Think your wedding should be an uber-private affair? Why not have it far away from prying eyes and ears, 150 feet off the ground? Companies like Wanderlust Travels allow you to do just that. You could lift off into the sky after you’ve taken rounds around the pyre, for a few hours of privacy being husband and wife. We can’t imagine anything more romantic. {Pssst…May we suggest an ‘Up’-themed wedding?}

Garden of Five Senses

Have the wedding attire fit for a princess, but missing out on the venue to match it? You can make use of this secluded, sprawling space {which can accommodate about 800 people} for a very Mughal-inspired sangeet or wedding reception. Picture your guests walking on stone walkways between channels of cascading water, surrounded by sculptures and flowers, and the sound of hundreds of overhead ceramic chimes. We can hear you sighing from here. {We also think this could be a superb location for a pre-wedding shoot.}

Your Terrace

The upside to this is that you can call only as many people as your terrace allows. {Hey, we see that as a plus!} So, if huge traditional weddings aren’t your thing, a small, beautifully-decorated terrace is always a good idea. Go ahead and surround yourself with your closest family and friends and make your big day really special.

Dilli Haat, Pitampura

Who would have thought you could have a wedding at Delhiwala’s favourite shopping spot for winters? If you’re looking for an ethnic setting that’s more on the casual side, we can’t imagine a better place. We recommend going all out on the colours—we can picture it setting off brilliantly with the earthy tones of the place. {They have the capacity to cater to about 1,000 people, so you can have a nice, big gathering.}

Go Old School

We’re being fairly literal here; especially if you and your SO are high school/college sweethearts. What could be better than coming full circle? Celebrate your new phase of life right where you first caught each other’s eye. You’ll have to ask, but with a fair dose of nostalgia and a little arm-twisting, we’re sure you can transform your campus gardens or foyer into a space where you celebrate the first day of the rest of your life.
