Destination Weddings: Underwater Weddings in Maldives


The end of an era; the start of a new one. You’re planning the biggest day of your life! Have you always dreamed of having a magical wedding at a beautiful location with a picturesque view? Somewhere unique that will get people talking for months about how beautiful the ceremony was?

How about an underwater wedding at a beautiful island in the Maldives?

If you like a bit of adventure, then this is the perfect idea for you!


An underwater wedding in Maldives is also just like a normal destination wedding. Except, well, it’s done underwater. This will be a unique experience, not only for the couple, but also for the attendees.

Both the bride and the groom will have to wear scuba suits and masks. However, you can be creative with that as well! There are scuba suits made specially for underwater weddings that are designed to look like tuxedos and wedding gowns. If you’ve never done scuba diving before, it is better to get a few lessons beforehand as well.

When it comes to saying vows, some couples like to use sign language or write on a board. There are some sites that provide you with helmets with com units. That way you will actually be able to hear your beloved say the vows to you.
After the actual ceremony is done underwater, you can change into dry clothes and have a party at the beach! Or if you would prefer to have your reception indoors, you can even have sea themed decorations.

If you are intrigued by the idea of getting married underwater, there are companies that would arrange all the necessities for you. You can either have your whole family underwater as well, or you can have a screen put up on land for attendees to enjoy the ceremony from afar.

An underwater wedding just may give you the most breathtaking natural backdrop that you could ever find. Filled with marine life and the beautiful hue of the sea, it will give a unique feel to your special day.

Amaya Kuda Rah in Maldives is one such location where underwater weddings are performed.
