Rambagh Palace belongs to the Taj Group of Hotels and is the ideal place for you if you’ve always dreamed of having an opulent wedding that you want to customize, right down to the table centerpieces at your reception. The venue is complete with an amphitheater for the sangeet and lush gardens for the cocktail reception. The hotel even offers a traditional Indian baraat complete with elephants to sanctify your celebration.
2.Jai Mahal Palace – Jaipur
Jai Mahal Palace is more whimsical and romantic. However, the hotel provides a more modern wedding setup against its ancient backdrop and also makes the honeymoon experience for the couple extraordinary. One place to keep your sight set on if you’re looking for an outdoor reception is the luxuriant Mughal Gardens.
3.Neemrana Fort – Jaipur
The imposing Neemrana-Fort Palace falls on the Delhi-Jaipur highway. This architectural treasure is the very essence of Rajasthan, where culture and tradition meet modern-day luxury. Along with the old-world charm the place exudes, it also boasts a swimming pool and sundeck terraces that would be ideal for a cocktail-cum-pool party and rooftop gardens for the reception.
4.Taj Lake Palace – Udaipur
Taj Lake Palace is a floating vision in white, situated on the edge of Lake Pichola. A wedding at this destination is bound to be an affair to remember. The hotel ensures this by giving the couple an opportunity to choose from an array of traditional and modern-day themes styled to perfection.
5.The Leela Palace – Udaipur
Another spectacular location overlooking Lake Pichola. True to Rajput grandeur, this hotel has been designed to reflect intricate craftsmanship and luxury at its best. It truly typifies the perfect venue for a big fat Indian wedding.
6.Hotel Fateh Garh – Udaipur
Hotel Fateh Garh is a Heritage Renaissance structure that echoes the cultural and spiritual heritage of Rajasthan’s past. It is ideal for those couples who wish to tie the knot in a picturesque old-world location with a touch of class.
7. Umaid Bhavan – Jodhpur
While Umaid Bhawan is the largest known home in India, part of it is owned by the Taj Group and is absolutely breathtaking (my personal favourite) with intricate design and rich, antique furnishing. You’ll be surprised to know that it is considered a budget hotel, so you can have a truly classy, royal-like wedding here at a not-so-exorbitant cost.
8.Taj Hari Mahal – Jodhpur
Taj Hari Mahal echoes a Moghul style with a fantastic mix of swanky and classic. It is romantic, elegant, traditional and refined, and fit for a fairy tale wedding.
Apart from the wedding buzz, the architectural marvels, such as temples, forts and palaces (of course), in Rajasthan are truly something to look forward to on your visit there. Whether you’re out shopping, on a desert safari, visiting a zoo, taking an elephant ride, or enjoying an elaborate thali meal, your experience of this beautiful destination will be far from ordinary.
So as an end note in the spirit of true Rajasthani hospitality:
“In the past, people were born royal. Nowadays, royalty comes from what you do.” – Gianni Versace
