The right location makes all the difference when it comes to hosting a truly memorable destination wedding. For something delightfully refreshing, Azerbaijan is one of the new exciting locations to plan your nuptials.
Destination weddings have been trending over the globe for a few years now. Families love the convenience of hosting the celebrations under one roof, ideally in a beautiful holiday resort or luxury hotel, at a location that guests find interesting, scenic or unique. Thailand, Oman, and Italy are some of the top choices for Indian destination weddings, but places like Azerbaijan are also gaining traction with well-heeled, globe-trotting couples. This country which spans Asia and Europe and is bounded by the Caspian Sea and Caucasus Mountains offers some historic and modern marvels.
Azerbaijan serves up a dynamic blend of natural beauty, rich history, pristine beaches, world-class services, and contemporary luxury. Located in the Caucasus region, Azerbaijan’s distinct offerings have attracted adventurous travellers, sophisticated foodies, and party lovers over the years. However, it is a country still undiscovered and untested by many, especially when it comes to hosting traditional Indian weddings, which makes it a unique location that’s bound to serve up some pretty distinctive experiences.
Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is a bustling city that boasts of grand hotels that offer exquisite decor and opulence in their indoor and outdoor venues. Some of the most prominent palatial hotels include the Boulevard Hotel Baku Autograph Collection, the Four Seasons Hotel Baku, Fairmont Baku Flame Towers, Hilton Baku, JW Marriott Absheron Baku Hotel. Select any of these world-class venues to host your wedding ceremonies and give your guests a taste of authentic Azerbaijani elegance and hospitality.
If you are planning a beach wedding, then the glistening coast of the Absheron Peninsula is a clear winner when it comes to a sea-facing location. It attracts many visitors because of its warm climate, affordable prices and excellent services. The beach resorts provide heavenly views and elite services. Bilgah Beach Hotel, Sea Breeze Resort and the Dalga Beach Aquapark Resort are some of the crème de la crème beachfront venues in Azerbaijan. The official opening of the beach season is around the beginning of June though they can be visited all year round.
Azerbaijan’s natural reserve is partly wild and partly covered with the remains of ancient forests. The terrain of Azerbaijan is carved by rivers and mountain streams which then split into majestic waterfalls. Post the wedding festivities you and your guests can unwind and explore some of the natural wonders of Azerbaijan like the Hirkan National Park, Lake Goygol, Zagatala Reserve and much more.
