A wedding in the Maldives is exactly what many couples go to the paradise islands for. Just incredible emotions and vivid pictures against the backdrop of snow-white beaches and the azure ocean! The Maldives is the perfect place to say words of love and pledge of allegiance.

What is a wedding in the Maldives

The first thing to understand is that a Maldivian wedding has a purely symbolic meaning. This is a solemn event for a couple, but not for the "letter of the law": a wedding in the Maldives has no legal force. A marriage contracted in a Maldivian resort is not recognized as legal in your country. Therefore, newlyweds who arrange marriage ceremonies in the Maldives, first hold an official painting at home. And then they go to paradise for a romantic setting.

An entire wedding industry has developed in the Maldives , offering the most unusual celebration options. A wedding can be concluded even under water, in scuba gear or in an exquisite underwater restaurant. Almost all resorts in the Maldives offer wedding packages that include different offers.


How is a Maldivian wedding going?

The wedding ceremony includes the Maldivian boduberu show - traditional songs and drums. Dancers dressed in Maldivian attire lead the couple to the wedding altar, which is usually located on the beach or sandbar. A festively decorated arch, a beautiful bridal bouquet with tropical flowers, rose petals and traditional Maldivian clothes that are given to the newlyweds are an integral part of most Maldivian weddings.

Hotels offer weddings for different tastes and budgets, so you can arrange a more youthful wedding in a Western style. As a rule, hotels offer basic and advanced packages. The advanced includes a romantic dinner, breakfast in the villa, spa, cruise and other amenities.

In the Maldives, weddings are not only played on the beach: they can be held on a traditional dhoni boat or on a luxury yacht, on a desert island and in an underwater residence. The cost of a Maldivian wedding depends on what exactly is included in the package.

One of the most inexpensive offers about $550 dollars. This includes a celebration without dinner. A luxury option with dinner, cruise and spa can cost around $4,000.

Wedding packages include flowers, cake, photography, venue decoration, master of ceremonies, champagne, musicians.


How to plan a wedding in the Maldives

  • The first stage is booking the ceremony. Any couple can order a wedding in the Maldives , regardless of whether they are married. Therefore, in the Maldives , you can both celebrate the wedding itself and conduct its rehearsal.
  • You need to arrive at the hotel a couple of days before the appointed date so that there is time to prepare. On the eve of the wedding, meet with the wedding coordinator, discussing all the nuances of the ceremony. Most hotels only have one wedding ceremony per day, so it's worth booking it with the hotel in advance.
