Planning A Big, Fat Royal Wedding? Bookmark These Gorgeous Forts For Your Big Day

    Your big day deserves to be celebrated with all the pomp and show you desire, so if you’re looking to go all out, why not start with your venue? We’ve listed some of the most stunning forts in the country for you to host your wedding day for a truly regal affair.

    Neemrana Fort, Alwar

    Stunning architechture, gorgeous hanging gardens, two pools, and an Ayurvedic spa, this fort is all things royal. They take special pride in their 14-tiered rich heritage. Plus, the fort offers a gorgeous, 360-degree view of the bright mustard firleds surrounding the property. The location of the fort works out pretty well, being equidistant from Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. With 72 rooms and suites that can accommodate around 150-300 people at once, your wedding party will be more than comfortable here.

    Alila Fort, Bishnagarh

    Beauty is an understatement when it comes to the majestic Alila Fort. Rich architecture with extensive designs influenced by both British and Mughal styles, their interiors are stunning. Their magnificent jharokha-style-windows, stone jaali work, old-style doors, thikri mirror work will export you back to the Mughal era. Their excellent food & beverage menus and hospitality will make it hard for you to leave, even after the wedding.

    Fort Rajwada, Jaisalmer

    Imagine waking up in the lap of relaxation, nestled in the tranquillity of the desert. Fort Rajwada allows you to experience Rajputana royalty with modern elements, like a pool-side barbeque and their gorgeous, rooftop sunset bar. Every room is adorned with handmade paintings and murals made by local artisans, several decades old. Carrying forward the hospitality of Jaisalmer with 90 rooms, four mini suites and five suites, they know their business when it comes to weddings.

    Amer Fort, Jaipur

    Amer Fort is another architectural wonder, with its mirrored tiles, coloured glasses, white marble pavilion structures in  Jas Mandir {the hall of private audience} and Jai Mandir {the hall of mirrors}. Located on a forested hilltop with a beautiful scenic view of Maota lake, we can’t imagine a more perfect place to tie the knot. They also provide lucrative packages for weddings, beginning at a guest list of 50 people and carrying on from there.

    Tijara Fort, Alwar

    Spread across eight acres, the fort has been divided into seperate palace wings with 21 rooms and suites. Their architecture is inspired by Yin-Yang energies like Rani-Mahal for the royal women and the Mardana portion for royal men, showing how much they focused on a reunion of two souls. While they have a rich variety of national and international cuisines, the property still needs to work on their bar, because they currently don’t have one.

    Khumbalgarh Fort, Rajasthan

    Embrace nature with a touch of royalty; Kumbhalgarh fort focuses on the famous, Mewari hospitality. Their captivating interiors, especially those of the Cloud Palace, are a riot of colour with their green and turquoise rooms overlooking the city of Udaipur below. Having a wedding here would be stunning; definitely a location all couples should look into.

    Fort Grand, Hyderabad

    Fort Grand is easily one of the prettiest forts around. Set in a picturesque landscape, it’s near the city, but still far away from the hustle and bustle of Hyderabad. The fort serves as a grand luxury destination for a wedding to happen on a massive scale as they have the capacity to accommodate a whopping 10,000 guests at one go.
