8 Reasons, Why Devraj Niwas, Jaipur is an Awesome Wedding Accommodation!

8 12 2016

15085659_1224351177622945_1995701006628664382_nA wedding in Jaipur, one of the most romantic cities of the world and the top 5 tourist destinations of India is invariably a ‘destination wedding’. Whether the groom, bride or both are from outside the city, creating a memorable experience for your guests, especially when so many come from across the country and the world is not something which can be taken lightly. Managing guests, luggage, pickups-drops, lunches, shopping, ceremonies, make-up, sightseeing and mostly giving that quality time to all the guests all at home can fast turn into a nightmare. In hotels, with rooms scattered all over the property and guests & family meeting only for ceremonies or over meals intermingled with hotel guests, it stops feeling personal. Also apart from the wedding ceremonies which mostly take place in the night at the venue, the days remain wide open for the guests to enjoy their stay in the lovely Pink city. It is an awesome time to catch up with both the family and the friends while staying put together and spending the day doing something fun and adventurous and in the process creating wonderful memories.

It is here that Devraj Niwas steps in and creates that feel of ‘destination’ to your wedding. With accommodation for guests, their to & fro, food, shopping, sightseeing, and ceremonies ; basically, the complete package all taken care of tastefully, you are free to enjoy the very special time that a wedding is.

1.Location, location, location: Stationed bang in the middle of Jaipur city, both the new as well as old Jaipur are easily accessible from here. Be it to see the magnificent sound and light show at Amer Fort, admire Jantar-Mantar, pick up Jewellery from MI road / Johari bazar or Block prints from Jaipur, you couldn’t be more conveniently located. With airport & railway station pick-up and drop as well as a travel assistance to help you figure out the city and its favorite haunts, you are at the right place in the right hands.

As the crowd kept getting bigger and better, the music kept getting louder and the crowd was seen drowning into this night of magic. Now was the moment when the Mumbai duo Madboy/Mink stepped in and took over the stage, their eclectic music where Madboy i.e. Imaad Shah played Guitar and Mink i.e. Saba Azad rocked the night by singing away to glory !

Then began the night that gave an ode to fashion. Models began to walk the ramp dressed in the classy collection created by ace designers and no one was seen blinking since then. While all were wrapped in ecstasy of music, drinks, dance and fashion, the ravishing Gauhar Khan strutted down the ramp drawing all the eyes on her.  Donning a contemporary eccentric outfit, Gauhar Khan matched up to her ‘fashion diva’ avatar and looked smashing in like ever.
