If you are looking for a destination for a dream wedding or romantic renewal of vows ceremony, the Maldives is perfect; here’s more on what to expect.
Resort & Location
For hosting a symbolic wedding in Maldives, luxury resort options are ideal since they are each on a private island offering sublime seclusion. Destinations like the Ari Atoll which can be reached by seaplane provide truly enchanting backdrops be it for a ceremony on soft sands or aboard a yacht as you sail into the sunset!
Apart from idyllic locations, some resorts such as Kandolhu Maldives offer special packages ideal for a renewal of vows. This includes getting a wedding coordinator who will plan the ceremony the way you want, arranging for a master of ceremonies, drummers and a photography session as well as decorating the beach venue.
What to Expect
Depending on the package, the bride will be first taken to a preparation room and once ready, escorted by traditional bodu beru drummers to meet the groom; the couple will walk down an aisle of sand and be greeted by the master of ceremonies. After exchanging vows and rings, the cake will be cut followed by a champagne toast.
Resorts will also offer added extras to make a wedding or renewal of vows in Maldives more memorable; this can include spa packages for couples and photography and videography services. After the ceremony, you can opt for a sunset cruise, an intimate candlelit dinner and a champagne breakfast in bed the next day!
