What makes Maldives the best wedding destination?

What makes a great wedding day? Is it great food, drinks, music and the right guests? Yes, yes and yes. But there is something much more important to make your wedding day more memorable. It’s the location that counts most when it comes to planning the big day.

Of course, everyone wants their big day to be extra special. But how do you stand out? “There’s no better way to stand out than with a destination wedding,” says Chelsea Bengier from Jetsetter – the ideal travel site for those looking to score high-quality luxury accommodations at a discounted rate.

Jetsetter recently listed the seven best wedding destinations in the world, and guess which made it to the top of the list of the best places to say I Do? Yes, the Maldives. “There’s nothing more romantic than the Maldives,” writes Chelsea.

You may find that a large percentage of hotels and resorts in the Maldives offer special packages for wedding and renewal of vows. But what makes the Maldives so special? “The overwater bungalows, sunset dinners in the sand, steamy swims in private plunge pools… the list goes on,” exclaims Chelsea.

When planning for the big day, there are dozens of ultra-luxe resorts to choose from. Chelsea picked to feature Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru as one of the ‘best to tie the knot’.

“This dreamy getaway has an on-site wedding planner, florist, and pastry chef, plus the world’s first overwater wedding chapel, a breezy bungalow with a glass aisle to watch the tropical fish while you say your vows,” writes Chelsea.

“Oh, and let’s not forget the couple’s massage, rose petal bath, and breakfast in bed, all included in the package.”

According to traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, some of the most attractive wedding and renewal of vows packages here in the Maldives are available at Baros Maldives, Mirihi Island Resort, Constance Halaveli, Soneva Fushi, Taj Exotica Resort and Spa, Komandoo Maldives Island Resort, Six Senses Laamu, Niyama Private Islands, Veligandu Island Resort and Spa, and Kurumba Maldives, to name a few.

According to the reviews, weddings in the Maldives are exquisitely ranked for their dream-worthy, wonderful, flawless, stunning, golden, perfect, amazing, and most of all, memorable nature.

But what are some of the things that hotels in the Maldives can do to further enhance the wedding experience here on the beautiful islands? For starters, they can offer more comprehensive wedding planning options, and make their wedding packages more exclusive by incorporating their very own special trademarks.

What else? Introducing a little bit of extra vacation time for the couple and their guests, for snorkelling, diving or just lounging around is bound to help too. But of course, most of these incentives are already on offer here in the Maldives.

Italy and Mexico came in second and third, respectively, in the Jetsetter list. Other destinations which made the seven Best Wedding Destinations around the World list include Côte d’Azur in France, Hawaii, Ireland and Jamaica.
