India is a country of extremes, dazzling diversity and consistent surprise. It holds the most famous architectural tribute to love - the Taj Mahal - a Palace built by Emporer Shahjahan for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. If you are planning a destination wedding in India, you can expect a remarkable mix of ancient traditions and exotic beauty. But most of all, expect the unexpected.
While in India, couples can visit one of the 25 national preserves that protect the Bengal tiger, India's national animal. India is a country of many festivals, sacred days, celebrations and ceremonies; it is possible to plan most any trip there to correspond with an unforgettable event or spectacle. Explore the Himalayan mountains, or relax on palm-fringed beaches, rejuvenate at an Ayurvedic spa, or dazzle your senses at an open marketplace.
Climate is a critical factor in deciding when to plan your destination wedding; November through mid-April, India's cooler period may be the most pleasant period for most areas. India's own wedding season is during this period, and visitors are likely to see lively wedding processions whirl through the streets.
India Travel Info
India's climate can be considered as three general periods: the hot, the wet (monsoon), and the cool period. The cool period - November through mid-April - may be the best time to plan a destination wedding. While the monsoon period generally ends in October, temperatures don't really cool down to comfortable levels until November. Keep in mind, as well, that India's climate varies dramatically from north to south.
