A destination wedding is all that our hearts desire for our weddings, whether it is our own or we are just attending one. Destination weddings are so elaborate, exotic, and exhilarating; so much to keep people hunting for the perfect destination till the last moment. For many of us, travel is not just about visiting new places and finding a breather from the mundane life, it is about getting to learn about the corners of this earth. Some of us just want to bathe in the colours of a place once we visit it. So if you are one of such people and want to plan a wedding in a culturally-rich city for maximum learning, we have enlisted our top five cities with generous cultural quotient.
Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. The “core” of the historic centre is the Plaka neighbourhood (at the eastern side of the Acropolis), which has been inhabited without interruption since antiquity. When you walk through the narrow labyrinthine streets lined with houses and mansions from the time of the Turkish occupation and the neoclassical period (19th c.), you will have the impression of travelling with a “time machine”.
In Greece, it’s not only about the islands but also the internal elegance that the historical city of Athens has to offer! Also, the beautiful Athenian Riviera offers a close to the sea option where you can have a more carefree yet sophisticated wedding concept.
São Paulo is Brazil’s largest city and the world’s seventh-largest. Because of its heritage and history, São Paulo is home to a number of statues, parks, museums and galleries. These create the perfect ambience in which to wander while taking in the sights and sounds of this destination. Because of the focus on the Brazilian culture that is such a distinctive characteristic of São Paulo, visitors can look forward to a very full and exciting South American experience. With over 12 000 different restaurants, as well as pubs, clubs and discos, there is no shortage of activities and attractions for all visitors, regardless of age or profile.
Picture sharing your wedding vows with the man or woman you have pledged your heart to against a backdrop of cascading waterfalls. Why not add some colour and vibrancy to this image by spending your first few days as husband and wife at the most popular carnival in the world?
Miami is one of the state’s – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots. Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area does indeed offer multiple enticements for everyone – the trendy nightlife of South Beach, bejeweled by the eye candy of the Art Deco district, the bustle of Calle Ocho and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana, the plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables, seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region, the lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis.
Enjoy your wedding in Miami’s grandest, most beautiful and unique wedding venues.

Istanbul is one of the most visited and important places in the world, a central hub connecting Asia and Europe, blending the past and the future, bringing together cultures and people from all over the world.
