There are innumerable 5-star amenities, restaurants and wedding packages you can pick from. From populated isles to private spots, there are several spots that offer great views of the city. 

Climate/Best time for getting married

The Maldives islands have a tropical climate all around the year. However, there are only two main seasons. The high season starts from December and ends in March while the low season runs from April to November.

Rainfall is very heavy during the low season and you might not wish to get married if you’re looking for particularly sunny and clear skies. The best months to get married are February and March owing to the lovely weather conditions. Do note that many people also prefer December and January for weddings, this is a great choice as well.

It will be important to note that the weather here is quite unpredictable. You might not be able to tell when there will be a spell of shower and so, it is better to check the monthly weather guide for more information on average temperature, rainfall and sunshine. The heat might be uncomfortable for some of the guests, therefore you might want to consider marrying just before sunset.
