Types of venues for destination weddings

There are various things to consider when planning your dream day abroad and even more when you are planning an Asian wedding. One of things to consider is the type of wedding venue you would like to opt for. Your venue itself sets the tone and creates the settings for your wedding.

Venues options will vary by country from beautiful resorts and boutique hotels to castles and private villas. You need to think about your guest numbers. Also, if the venue can accommodate your numbers and what the venue provides.

To inspire you, here are some of the types of venues you can book for your big day:

Private villas

They are a perfect choice for more intimate destination weddings. A villa gives you and your nearest and dearest the privacy that may not be possible in larger venues. You also have the benefit of selecting your own suppliers and not have to opt for a venue’s preferred supplier. Finally, you and your guests have the option of staying in the villa too which is perfect!


If you’re having a big fat Asian wedding abroad, a resort may be a perfect choice for you and your other half. Resorts can accommodate for the larger weddings of 150 plus guests. They often have several options of locations on site for your events including your pre-wedding event, civil, religious ceremony, drinks reception and leaving breakfast.


If you’re a true romantic and love the historical element of countries, this is a perfect choice! Imagine a beautiful castle in the romantic Tuscany or Florence.. beautiful flowers, candles and chiffon fabrics styling the wedding to create the perfect setting in a castle.

Boutique hotels

Smaller numbers? Then a boutique hotel is a great choice for your wedding. Boutique hotels can accommodate for weddings typically of up to 120 guests. You will be more likely to get accommodation for the majority of your guests there too. Also, they tend to have an in-house catering team which takes away the stress of finding a caterer, unless you require a specific food cuisine.


Looking for a wow-factor wedding? 150+ guests? A luxurious palace may well be a perfect location for your wedding! Palaces can be found in many of the historical quarters of countries, with beautiful surroundings, grand staircases, ornate furniture and filled intricate details – these are just a few of the dreamy elements of palaces.
