About

On WeddingWire since 2020

Expanding horizons and breaking through borders – that has always been the mission of Indian Destination Wedding.

Led by seasoned event planner Ateet Ahuja – we’ve always been impassioned by the prospect of helping folks create memorable moments they’ll cherish for a lifetime, and have been planning international, Indian and fusion weddings since 1996.

“We love being a part of one of the most significant days in someone’s life,” Ateet said. “We pride ourselves on handling our weddings with professionalism and creativity, and are committed to making sure our clients’ visions become their reality.”

As we looked to form Indian Destination Wedding, we asked ourselves a simple question:

What could we do to not only stand out among the crowd, but to help our clients have the wedding of their dreams?

The answer was simple: We’d actually spend time getting to know our clients before we start planning their weddings.

People who choose us to plan their wedding or travel arrangements are taken back by how committed we are to getting to know their vision. A singular phone call or hastily written email simply won’t do. We engage in conversations with our clients because we know it’s this type of personalized touch that will help us create customized tours and packages that are as unique and individualized as our clients themselves.

An expertise in recreating the idyllic Indian experience

Ateet and his team of travel and wedding planning experts have helped plan and execute countless culturally diverse and destination weddings since the mid-90s. Being Indian, Ateet is uniquely gifted in designing and developing Indian weddings that feature many aspects of the culture. He speaks Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu and Spanish, and is well-skilled in understanding, respecting, and implementing the many subtle – yet important – cultural differences that an Indian wedding might encompass, including food, clothing, music and traditions. “The magic of a successful destination wedding is in the details,” Ateet said. “From making sure guests’ travel plans are taken care of to ensuring that the linens match the overall décor, we treat every component as if it’s the most important because, simply put, it is.”

Extremely helpful and responsive

Indian Destination Weddings did a phenomenal job throughout our entire wedding process - from helping us to finalize a resort to handling travel logistics the weekend of the wedding. The team was incredibly responsive and regularly got on the phone to walk through some tough decisions/provide advice. They have a strong breadth of relationships in the destinations (we did a Cancun wedding). More, during the wedding, they were incredibly responsive to all of our guest's travel changes and questions - their response time was within minutes. Could not recommend this team and company more -

Experienced team that will go the extra mile

When we first approached Ateet with the daunting task of planning an Indian destination wedding in less than 6 months(!), we had no idea what to expect or if it was even possible. Ateet was confident we could make it work, and he walked us through the entire process: narrowing down resort options; advising us on the room block and venue selections; recommending external vendors; and promptly answering our many, many questions along the way. His strong relationships with the resorts/vendors were a huge advantage - he fought for us whenever we ran into any issues or roadblocks to make sure we got what we needed. Ateet and team (special thanks to Jess and Dzenita!) also made sure our guests' experience was seamless when it came to booking rooms and providing airport transfers. Planning a wedding is always stressful but the IDW team's experience and dedication helped minimize our anxiety during that special time. We're so grateful to them for helping us pull off an amazing wedding in Punta Cana!

IDW Review

We loved working with IDW. Ateet and his team were super helpful throughout the last year and half. Whenever we needed anything (special accommodations, transport, vendor help, etc etc) IDW was only a email or phone call away. The entire team was professional and very reliable. They made sure everything was taken care of and questions were answered which eased our wedding planning process. We are so glad we used IDW and had IDW on our side. We 1000% recommend IDW!!
