    In a strategic move to tap into a new tourism market, India’s Ministry of Tourism is venturing into wedding tourism, seeking to cater to couples from around the world looking to tie the knot in enchanting Indian locales. Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy emphasized that the Ministry is dedicated to overseeing every aspect of a wedding journey, ensuring a seamless experience “from the first hello to the final I do.” While the country has previously promoted medical and wellness tourism, this foray into wedding tourism signifies a new approach.

    The initial focus will be on 25 select destinations, which are being positioned on the global stage as prime wedding locations. India’s rich cultural heritage lends itself well to this endeavor, with plans to spotlight various wedding options, including royal weddings that exude opulence, picturesque beach weddings, and idyllic Himalayan weddings that boast natural beauty.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi has previously endorsed the concept of wedding tourism, aligning it with the nation’s broader goals of promoting religious and cultural tourism. This new direction aligns with India’s ongoing efforts to showcase its multifaceted attractions and create an all-encompassing tourist experience.
