About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

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.”

    Great Experience!

    I highly recommend Ateet and the Indian Destination Wedding team! Ateet was great with helping us pick a resort and a planner for our wedding when we initially didn't know where to start. The team then did a great job with making sure our guests' travel plans were sorted out, and were responsive whenever minor issues came up. Overall it was great working with them!

    Best of the best for destination weddings

    Ateet was with us from beginning to end on our journey for a wedding. He was super informative, helped us make an educated decision based on our needs. In hindsight, his input and consultive based approached helped us pick the right venue for us. He was always there to jump on a phone call or via email. So I give an A+ for communication and professionalism. Out of the other companies out there he was able to give us the hands on help we needed. I would certainly pick him and wouldn’t look back.

    Amazing! Highly recommend to anyone doing an international wedding!

    Ateet and Indian Destination Wedding made our Wedding experience in Mexico incredibly smooth. They were a huge help through the entire process from start to finish. My wife and I had no idea where to begin and Ateet clearly guided us every step of the way.

    Below are a few items that they were a HUGE help with
    - attentively listening to our requests and finding the perfect resort
    - handling all communications with the resort
    - coordinating all flights/transportation for all of our 180 guests
    - coordinating pick up shuttles to/from the airport

    Highly recommend going with Ateet and Indian Destination Weddings for any couple looking to create an absolutely unforgettable experience overseas.
