But why is the Maldives the trend destination 2022 for weddings for Pretty Weddings?

Of the Advantage of a wedding in the Maldives is obvious. The journey is easy to handle, despite the long distance. Whether direct flight or with a stopover, a daily arrival is possible. With temperatures around 30 degrees, they are Maldives a year-round destination. The most popular months are between November and April. The Maldives belonged to private villas and well thought-out hygiene concepts already in 2021 to the “safe” travel destinations (Note: The status may change daily due to the current pandemic situation).

Many couples dream of a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon after the wedding. After the wedding, the budget is often no longer sufficient. There are also some couples who organize the wedding party just out of a sense of duty and not because they would like to celebrate a big wedding. However, a sense of duty should not be the priority when it comes to a couple who want to get married. Sometimes it’s just better to have one Bride and groom breaks with conventions and decides on one elopement. In the case of an elopement, which in German means “burn out”, the focus is clearly on the couple. The desire to feel sand between your toes and to feel the freedom of the sea when saying yes is fulfilled by a combination of honeymoon and wedding ceremony on site.

It is particularly important for the wedding planner that she has already visited most of the islands herself in order to develop a feeling for the “island vibe”.

Maureen Krühne says: “I want to be able to tell couples in advance how the food will taste, whether the beds are comfortable and why I think this island is a good fit for them. I act as a kind of test customer. I can only recommend the island if I really like it. Transparency is always important here!”

Class instead of mass

The wedding planner advises against classic all-inclusive hotel islands due to the number of guests for an elopement. One Wedding for two is an intimate affair and should not be disturbed by unwanted viewers.

What matters to them is that the islands have unique selling points and aren’t just interesting for the wedding day itself. Location and island offerings are important for a Maldives wedding. In particular, the Islands, which have a high standard. The value is high in the end. Quality instead of mass is the concept. Better to spend a little more, but enjoy the time for two to the fullest and ideally experience the wedding without spectators.
