Top 5 most exclusive wedding venues in Mumbai

Mumbai is a city of dreams, they say. Likewise, a wedding here should mean nothing less than a dream wedding either. When brides and grooms start looking at wedding venues, they leave no stone unturned to find that just-perfect beautiful venue. Every woman wants her wedding to be a unique, memorable affair and hence, an appropriate venue selection plays a vital role in ensuring that. However, there is a dearth of open spaces in this city. Finding a perfect venue in the city can be a daunting task. So I decided to do a complete round-up of the city and the host of dream venues, be it open spaces or off-beat locations, that it offers to a couple tying the knot. We all must have attended weddings in banquet spaces at some point of time; so this time around, I thought of scouting for exclusive venues, which are clearly different from the typical 5-star banquet spaces. Something note-worthy is how all the venues listed underneath are in South Mumbai. Here is an ascending list of findings from my treasure hunt, so-to-speak.

5. Hindu Gymkhana Ground
