Marriage is not only a union of two hearts, but of two families. Nowadays, weddings are being celebrated as an event, not just as a ritual. Where earlier people used to perform all the rituals of marriage in homes or guest houses according to their convenience and budget, now the trend of destination wedding has increased a lot in India too. Planning 4-5 days of marriage as an event outside your city is called Destination Wedding.
