Planning your wedding in Mauritius
It’s easier than you think to get married in Mauritius. Most hotels have their own experienced wedding coordinator, who will organise every last detail of your wedding for you, from the flowers to the post-ceremony celebration.
Local suppliers are very experienced when it comes to weddings in Mauritius and we are not short of award-winning talent on the island, including wedding photographers who have captured intimate ceremonies to extravagant Hindi weddings.
Many of the hotels and resorts in Mauritius offer extensive wedding and honeymoon packages, so you can choose the perfect one to suit your party size and style. Villas are also increasingly popular with multi-generational wedding parties and honeymooners.
As Mauritius has a subtropical climate, the island is warm all year round. For outdoor weddings, the chance of rain increases during the summer months of January to March.
As the Indian Ocean is already a divine honeymoon destination, weddings in Mauritius often mean you don’t have to travel far after getting married to enjoy the start of wedded bliss together.
