If you want a beautiful wedding on a beach but think that Goa is not only too mainstream but also slightly out of your budget, then a Daman beach wedding is what you should be looking at!
There was a time when weddings were all about being big events where both the families of the bride and groom would call everyone they knew, right from their neighbours to their distant relatives. For this reason, weddings were usually held at a venue which was deemed suitable for everyone. But the brides and grooms of today do not want huge community events in the name of their wedding. All they want to do is celebrate their love and the beginning of their new journey with the people who are really close to them, namely their close friends and family. This new mindset gave rise to the concept of intimate destination weddings. If you are a millennial who is all set to get married soon and someone who wants a beautiful but quiet wedding ceremony without too much drama from an unimaginably long list of guests, then we know a perfect destination for you.
You should opt for a Daman beach wedding. For all the people who think that beach weddings are gorgeous but who also think that Goa is too mainstream for their taste, a Daman beach wedding can be their answer. Here is almost everything you need to know about planning a Daman beach wedding, from scratch. Check it out.
Why Opt For A Daman Beach Wedding?
Well, we actually already gave you the answer. For all those couple who want an intimate and gorgeous wedding without having to worry about being too cliche (ahem, Goa, ahem) should definitely opt for a Daman beach wedding. It has many beautiful beaches like Jampore Beach and Devka Beach which are not overly crowded, and provide a stunning backdrop for a beautiful occasion such as a wedding. And not to mention, but because the destination is not very famous, it is also a good option for a budget beach wedding.
Everything That Is Involved:
Moving on, now that we know why a Daman beach wedding could be a great option, let us give you a few tips on how you can go about planning it. First of all, we have to tell you that when planning a destination wedding, it is always best to hire a local wedding planner. The reason is simple and practical - the locals always know where and how to get the best deals in their city which makes it very easy for you to host a perfect wedding.
you want an expert to plan your wedding in Daman, then Rizwan Ajmeri from AJ71 Events is your guy. He is a one-stop solution for your Daman beach wedding planning needs. But here, let us also give you a lowdown on all the aspects of planning that you need to keep in mind before you pick Daman as your wedding destination.
Since Daman is not a very famous tourist or wedding destination, there are only a few wedding venue options available. But the ones that are there, like The Deltin, Cidade De Daman Beach Resort and Sea Rock Inn provide a beautiful backdrop and setup for your special day. The prices of all these venues differ and are apt for all budgets.
The wedding venues in Daman are pretty self-sufficient and usually offer in-house catering. They range anywhere between Rs 600 to Rs 2000 per plate and can even go higher.
Since a Daman beach wedding isn't going to burn a very huge hole in your pocket, make sure that you spend good money on hiring the perfect photographer. A good photographer has the ability to turn a basic wedding into a magical one on film and that is never a bad deal. Almost all good wedding photographers are open to travel to any destination, if you still want to consider someone from or nearby Daman, then you can check out Neha Digital Photo Studio and Photo Phactory.
Your decor can either be handled by the wedding venue itself or you can hire a wedding planner to take care of all the details for you. Apart from AJ71 Events, Balaji Entertainment is another trusted wedding planner near Daman that you can consider.
While the idea of a Daman beach wedding is very alluring, travelling to Daman is the only thing that might discourage you from picking it as your wedding destination. The fastest and easiest way to reach Daman from anywhere in India is to take a flight to Surat and then take a taxi from Surat to Daman. Or, you can also take a direct train from Mumbai to Vapi, which is only 12 km from Daman and then take a taxi from the Vapi railway station. Now that you know all of this, you are in a better position to decide if a Daman beach wedding is something you would want or not. TBH, we really hope you do!
