In India, weddings are all about extravagance. From picture-perfect venues, elaborate decor, multi-cuisine spreads, and unlimited entertainment, ‘grandeur’ remains key. And Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach seamlessly presents these offerings on a platter, all without skipping out on intuitive service. In fact, the hotel notes that weddings generated around 60% of their banquet revenue pre-COVID, and is now, once again, observing an upward rise!
Weddings at Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach
Nestled amidst the shores of Juhu beach and overlooking the magnificent Arabian Sea, Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach recreates the vibe of a destination wedding right in the heart of the Maximum City. The multiple venue options here cater to different kinds of events, ceremonies, and functions — irrespective of how lavish or intimate the gathering may be. To make the venue easily accessible for guests and assure privacy for other patrons staying at the property, the hotel even has a dedicated pre-function area and a separate entrance for banquet events. During the day, couples can opt for natural lighting enhanced with a splendid sea view. A dedicated team customises packages, and suggests innovative menu options and food presentations for various preferences and expectations.
Weddings of the 21st Century
Food, according to Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach, makes up for one of the most indispensable aspects of any wedding. Guests often expect a lavish spread of delicacies encapsulating most, if not all, cuisines. However, customised selections and personalised dishes are the new rage. Wedding spreads are increasingly becoming personal wherein the culinary selections signify special meaning to the couple’s love story. Think food from the first date, favourite memories, or even a trip the two took together. In doing so, the couple not only reconnects with one another, but also with the guests. Another shift is also visible in terms of entertainment with inclusion of more local performances and artists.
Responsible hosting is just as crucial. In these eco-conscious times, couples are increasingly looking at ways to host responsibly. This means cutting back on superfluous waste, using energy-saving lights, substituting floral garlands for organic or recycled paper flowers, and more.
Couples are increasingly looking to celebrate their big day at exotic places, heritage spots or sea-view locations. One trusted property that can accommodate a diverse range of celebrations and functions—like pre-wedding shoots, haldi, mehndi, engagement, and the wedding itself—is Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach. Without having to leave Mumbai, this seaside hotel in Juhu is the ideal destination for a dream wedding.
