As far as destination weddings go, the stunning island nation of the Maldives snags the top spot consistently, and it’s easy to see why. If you are planning to say ‘I do’ surrounded by swaying palm trees and the mesmerising Indian Ocean as a backdrop, here is a complete guide.
It’s important to note that foreign nationals cannot be wed legally in the Maldives. A wedding or ceremony is merely symbolic. Quite often many couples tend to have a small legal ceremony at home and then visit the Maldives for their dream celebration under sunny blue skies.
Resort wedding packages
Every spa resort in Maldives usually offers several wedding packages for couples to choose from. Options vary in terms of budgets with prices starting anywhere from $560 to $4,000 and sometimes well beyond. Most packages by resorts such as Kandolhu Maldives take care of all the finer details so you can simply enjoy your special day without any worries.
If you are not keen on opting for a resort wedding package that is not your style, then why not opt to hire your wedding planner, who will know all the in and outs of planning the perfect Maldives wedding.
A quintessential way to exchange your vows is to say ‘I do’ on a beautiful beach with soft powdery sands underfoot, a refreshing sea breeze blowing through and endless blue skies to complement. One can opt to have their ceremony on a secluded sandbank or a resort’s beach.
It’s important to have your special day captured in perfect pictures. Many resorts have their own photographers or you can even choose to fly in someone of your choice if you so wish.
