No matter how much fun and exciting Indian weddings are, they can also be exhausting. After completing all the wedding rituals and seeing-off the wedding guests, all you want to do is just relax and spend some quality time with your better half. You want to escape to a place far away from the maddening city life that also gives you some Instagram-worthy pictures and lots and lots of memories. So it has to be something grand, romantic and visually stunning.
