4 Alternative Destinations For Intimate Weddings & Honeymoons

Besides the conventional resort or garden weddings, these cool and utterly unique destinations will make for an unforgettable celebration.

Taj Safaris
For nature lovers who want to tie the knot amidst the lush jungles of India that are home to towering ancient trees, forest birds and resident wildlife, check out the Taj Safaris, which offer luxurious glamping options in Bandhavgarh, Pench, Kahna and Panna National Parks. Weddings have to be kept intimate though, as each of the lodges can only hold around 9 to 12 suites and cottages each. Couples and guests can also partake in guided nature walks, have picnics in wooded areas, traverse with big cats and elephants or enjoy enchanting moments beneath starry Indian skies.
