Weddings Two Opposite Styles: Destination Wedding Vs. Elopement

Destination Wedding:

  • It is a wedding event generally held far away from residences of the would be couple.
  • Here, the wedding is hosted in a location where guests have to travel long to reach the said wedding place... the DESTINATION.
  • Guests are expected to stay long for the event.
  • Places are usually grand like: Palace, Resort, Beach. In India, Goa, Udaipur and some resorts near Mumbai are typically considered. It is one's imagination and choice.


  • This is a way of getting married... often unexpectedly... without inviting guests to wedding.
  • Usually such weddings are without consent and/or knowledge of the parents.
  • Such weddings when informed to relatives are often a surprise.

(Special thanks to my niece Mrunmayi Desai, for increasing my word power by one phrase... "Destination Wedding!")
