5 Reasons Why the Maldives is the Perfect Wedding Location

As the preferred honeymoon hotspot in Asia, it should come as no surprise that the Maldives is also the ideal wedding destination. Here are 5 reasons why paradise isles are perfect for nuptials.


The Weather

There's no such thing as a bad day for a wedding in the Maldives and that's an advantage the island nation has over most other destination wedding locations around the world. While the dry season from the months of November to April is the best time of the year to say "I Do" in the country, even the rainy season is not as gloomy and overcast as other wedding hubs in the region. Temperatures remain a warm 30 degrees Celsius all through the year so couples can be assured that sunny skies and a pristine atmosphere will prevail on their big day come rain or shine.


The Beaches and Breathtaking Resorts

As one of the most breathtaking island nations in the world, the Maldives is home to idyllic tropical islands numbering well over the thousands. This means that couples will be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding a white, sandy beach for their seaside nuptials. Fringed by turquoise waters, Maldivian beaches are the envy of the world and make picture perfect venues for celebrations and weddings of every scale. The Maldivian resorts are equally luxurious so couples have a wider range of Maldives luxury resorts to choose for their ballroom wedding or intimate beach wedding. Whether it's the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo or any other hotel base, Maldivian resorts pull out all the stops when it comes to wedding packages as well.


The Cost

For couples hailing from Europe and the United States, the cost of a destination wedding can be quite exorbitant as hosting a ceremony abroad incurs other costs a traditional celebration does not. The currency exchange rate of the Maldivian Rufiyaa, however, is an advantage for most couples who are calculating their wedding budget in US dollars and Euros. What's more, the visa application and granting process is also relatively easy in the Maldives and allows couples and guests to travel to the country without hassle. In fact, those with the US and European passports are also entitled to visa upon arrival for a period of no more than 30 days, which is more than sufficient for hosting a wedding ceremony.


Honeymoon Hub and Wedding Destination in One

Another advantage of selecting the Maldives for a destination wedding is that couples need not look elsewhere for their honeymoon plans. As one of the globe's best loved honeymoon hotspots, the paradise archipelago offers newly married couples a pristine beach laden environment in which to spend their first few days as husband and wife. The sheer range of romantic excursions and cruises available in the Maldives as well as the privacy and tranquillity of the resort only add to its appeal as a honeymoon location.


Guest Engagement

Those who are inviting loved ones and friends to the Maldives for their special day can also rest assured that the invitees can stay pleasantly occupied during, leading up to and well after the actual wedding day. With water sports activities and breathtaking beaches and islands located within easy reach of one another, guests who have travelled to the country specifically for the wedding can enjoy a mini-holiday in paradise as well.
