If you have many family members and friends to invite to the wedding, then we suggest holding it at the large banquet hall of the Radisson Blu Udaipur Palace Resort and Spa. It is able to host up to 800 guests and can also be combined with the massive outdoor lawn to accommodate up to 1,500 guests. You and your guests will definitely have a whale of a time while enjoying an evening scenic backdrop of the Fateh Sagar Lake and a nearby lush tropical jungle. The resort is also not far from the city center and other attractions like ancient temples and cultural museums.
The five-star Leela Palace Udaipur, which has panoramic views of Lake Pichola, combines traditional and modern architecture to make it the most ideal venue for your wedding celebrations. The banquet spaces, both indoor and outdoor, can accommodate up to 300 guests. There are also private rooms if you wish to have a small yet intimate affair. The hospitality team can also arrange your blissful union at an external venue, such as the Jag Mandir temple that is situated on an island across the hotel. In between schedules, you and your partner can also opt for a romantic cruise along Lake Pichola.
This 17th-century mansion is sure to charm you with its traditional Mewar architecture and simple but clean aesthetics. Furthermore, its location on the eastern banks of Lake Pichola makes it a great choice for an evening wedding celebration. After you and your partners have exchanged vows, treat your guests to an unforgettable alfresco-style dinner at the hotel’s Chandni restaurant which overlooks the lake and the bright city landscape in the distance. Once the wedding is over, pamper your partner with an unforgettable romantic dinner cruise on board the hotel’s luxurious pontoon boat. Better yet, arrange with the hotel staff for a horse riding session into the wilderness!
The Chunda Palace is, in a word, beyond description. Inspired by the ancient palaces of Rajasthan, the architecture took 16 years to achieve its regal splendor. Its beautiful hand-painted walls and crafted artifacts only add to a memorable experience. The hotel’s hospitality team pride themselves in treating you like royalty for your wedding preparations, so rest assured that you are in extremely good hands. All that’s left is for you, your partner and your guests to enjoy the occasion while admiring the view of Lake Pichola and Jag Mandir temple in the distance. If you have some free time, do visit the nearby bazaars and markets located at the Old City.
Located within close proximity to Lake Pichola, the Inder Residency has the capacity to cater to large amounts of guests. With a massive banquet hall and a beautiful lush Prince lawn that can sit over 1000 guests, you can be sure that your wedding can be customized to your specific requirements. We will let the pictures speak for themselves. If there is some time for a romantic exploration of old ruins, we recommend you visit the ruined citadel of Chittorgarh where imposing forts and graceful palaces once stood.
