Destination Wedding Goals

You have to admit it, Bollywood movies have given us some serious destination wedding goals. Did you just think of ‘Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani’? Thought so. It sure was a wedding of dreams. Bang on dancing, cascade of alcohol, group of close friends and fam jam, awesome background for unlimited selfies and ofcourse, great chilled out time with everyone. This is what is the definition of Wedding Shenanigans. Indian films have really upped its magnitude of making it grander when it comes to weddings giving us major destination wedding goals.

Here are some movies that showcased well repleted destination weddings in India:

Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani

They have set a benchmark for destination weddings. It was not just the destination that made it infamous but the people, friends, family, shared activities and enormous fun that made it look so beautiful. The destination is The Oberoi Udaivilas Hotel, Udaipur. The city itself is known as the Venice Of East. It is one of the cities of India which successfully preserves its heritage and offers the world it’s majestic hospitality. As you might have seen in the movie, the hotel has quaint walkways, serene pools and rippling fountains. It gives a mesmerizing experience.


Considered the ‘First Destination Wedding Movie’ of Bollywood, Shaandaar is shot in Leeds, county of Yorkshire in UK. Although the movie shows one castle as the location but the entire movie has been shot across 6 different castles in Yorkshire. With magnificent backdrops and breathtaking locations, it was one quirky wedding movie. The giant castles and lush gardens are a perfect combination for executing a Big Fat Indian Wedding. #Destination Wedding Goals.

Student Of The Year

Millennial debutants Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra starring in the movie hit it on point with Student Of The Year. The movie took many phases, one of which was the destination wedding scene. The famous song ‘Radha’ was shot during it at Banyan Tree Samui Hotel, Thailand. Starry backdrops and an amazing beach, Lamai beach was the location. Thailand is a hot place with long and serene water bodies which makes the overall ambience pleasant. It can be Your favorable destination for a wedding.

Band Baaja Baaraat

Another young generation of great actors, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma gave us a big hit with this movie. The very last wedding they plan together was shot at The Lallgarh Palace in Bikaner, Rajasthan. It is a classy venue, a heritage site perfect for Indian Weddings. Bikaner is city of authentic culture and food. They are the epitome of Indian hospitality, which is a major part of Indian Weddings. It is without doubt a great choice of destination.


Not much to your surprise, this location is Lakshmi Niwas Palace, Bikaner, Rajasthan. We know by now, Rajasthan should top your list when shortlisting destinations for a wedding. Great architecture, acres of green lands, cooling waterbodies, long halls and pathways, its the ultimate recipe for Big Show Wedding Business.

3 Idiots

Finally, some deviation from the summer palaces in Rajasthan. Vintage and wooden palace in hills like the one in the movie 3 Idiots. Woodville Palace Hotel, Shimla is the location where Kareena Kapoor decided to flee away from her own wedding to be with her love. It may not be very huge and extravagant but will not disappoint a wedding nuptial for sure. That is the very reason why some people choose to get married in a ‘not very titanic’ way. Its a perfect little place to enjoy a ‘cool’ wedding with your loved ones.
