Over the past decade, Kerala has become one of the most-sought after wedding destinations and has been consistently seeing an influx of couple intent on getting married in the backwaters. In fact, some understandably decide to prolong their wedding trip and convert into their honeymoon voyage as well. If beach themed weddings are too mainstream for you, go unconventional and exchange your vows in a houseboat gliding over the calm waters. There are a good deal of luxurious hotels in Kerala that offer both accommodation and wedding banquet halls, so that you have a pleasant stay and a gorgeous wedding.

Whether a 5 star luxury hotels like Taj Kovalam or Zuri Kumarakoam, 4 stars like Backwater Ripplers, or boutique ones like CGH Earth, Kerala has something for everyone. Intimate wedding in a houseboat or lavish Indian weddings on the beach or backwaters, Kerala has plethora of options suited for all types of guests gathering.

Kerala is extremely well-connected with two international airports. It also has a good network of rail and road network for facile and quick transportation. If you come via Cochin, it is advisable to do an overnight stay at Cochin, let your guests rest some or explore the interesting city a little. The next day or day after you could head to backwaters in Kumarakom or Allepey for your wedding. Afterwards you can continue, as Kerala has lot of sightseeing options like bird watching, wildlife national parks, hill stations, tea gardens and the list goes on. And one must not miss on the charm of staying in a houseboat or travelling by local sea transport.

We would be utterly delighted to be your companion through all the events and be your Kerala wedding planner to design an unforgettable wedding set in scenic backdrop and infused with cultural charms. If you are worried about the weather playing spoiler, then relax and be assured as Kerala, in spite of its proximity to the equator, boasts of pleasant climate owing to proximity to the sea and the presence of the Western Ghats.

The normal temperature range is between 28 and 30 degree centigrade, while the favourite tourist hub- the highlands of Kerala are comparatively cooler and exhilarating. Though, it might feel a little humid. So we advise to hold events either early morning (yes south Indian weddings happen early morning) or in evening. Afternoon outdoor events are not really advisable.
