Asian weddings consist of traditional ceremonies and a number of big days that take place before the wedding. They include dinner parties, henna nights, religious events and many more. The wedding day will then follow plus a huge reception party to wrap things up. The typical guest list at an Asian wedding is eye-popping. At many Asian weddings, there can be upwards of 500 guests. It is for this reason that couples choose destinations that have proximity. The Asia-Pacific region is diverse and has a lot of options to choose from; be it a beach wedding, mountain wedding, island wedding or a castle wedding. Modern Asian couples are exploring this space and finding new locations to conduct their divine nuptials. Have a look at these go-to choices from Asian couples.
