MARWAR speaks to different members of the community to learn how they balance tradition and modernity, especially when it comes to their business.

From exchanging wedding vows on serene beaches or in the middle of turquoise seas to illuminating monumental mansions that glimmer like a bejewelled adornment of the bride, Marwari weddings have undergone a sea change. MARWAR brings you luxurious wedding destinations that help you transform your wedding into a truly fairy tale affair.

The sheer scale of a wedding and the lavish hospitality and glamour that surrounds it demands that no stone is left unturned when it comes to festivity, entertainment, decor, location and food.
