So, you’re getting married and weeding through the nearly endless possibilities of locations to tie the knot? We’re familiar with that. When it comes to your big day, the location and atmosphere of the resorts you stay in can really make your wedding all the more special. Take a look at our top five picks for destination weddings!
If white sand beaches and turquoise water are your style…
Mexico has long been a classic destination wedding spot, particularly Cancun, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. The shear proximity of Mexico to the United States may have something to do with this as well as the increasingly convenient flight schedules that’ll have you in vacation mode as soon as possible. But, let’s be clear, this is not a top destination wedding location simply because of how close it is. The soft white beaches and deep, turquoise Caribbean waters is enough to make you swoon. And this is just your backdrop. Add into this your delicate wedding flowers, picturesque wedding altar and ceremony and you’ll be certain to fall in love with this location. Cancun features an entire zone of hotels, literally called ‘Zona Hotelera.’ Essentially, enough hotels and resorts to make your head spin. When you’re looking for the perfect location to get married and the perfect resort to fit your guest list, we have you covered.
If you want to exchange wedding vows in a dreamy tropical destination and still remain in the States...
Hawaii is for you! Mind the fact that little to none of your guests will need passports and there will be no foreign marriage laws to consider. Perhaps the only tricky aspect to navigate is that there are no all-inclusive resorts on the island, but luckily that’s something that we are well-adept at navigating. Unlike other popular tropical destination wedding locations, Hawaii has the beautiful beaches, and the rugged and unique topography that can only be formed by volcanoes. Few other places in the world can you see such a color palette of beaches — from white sand to volcanic black. Hawaii offers such diverse landscapes that if you’re looking for a relaxing wedding with the opportunity for plenty of adventures, consider Hawaii for your special day!
How about the genuine friendliness and gorgeous beaches of Jamaica?
While Jamaica makes our top pick often — wedding season or not — it’s a fantastic location to exchange vows. Whether the 7 miles of white sand beach in Negril or the port town of Ocho Rios appeals to you, each of these locations offers something different. A destination wedding in Jamaica will place you right in the thick of Island Life. Here, you will slow down, relax, and meet some of the most genuinely kind people. Now, while there are many, many places to stay and have your destination wedding in Jamaica, our travel experts have been to the majority of them. With a seemingly overwhelming amount of choices, that’s where our travel agents come in handy. Each resort has a unique feel. When it comes to your special day, trust an expert to book the resort with the perfect venue and atmosphere. If you’re dreaming of white sand beaches, turquoise water, and a friendly, relaxed island vibe, Jamaica may be just the place for you to tie the knot.
If you’re looking for a great mix of nature and the pristine beaches of the Caribbean Sea?
The Dominican Republic is unique for several reasons. First, the island has one side that faces the Atlantic Ocean and another that is the Caribbean Sea. Looking for activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling or relaxing in front of a calm sea? Then the south side of the island is the ticket. The Northern end of the Dominican Republic is full of fishing towns, good surfing and home to lush rain forests. Naturally, there are different atmospheres on these ends of the island. This is certainly something to factor in as you decide where to have your destination wedding. Typically, the most popular location for weddings in Punta Cana on the easternmost tip of the island. This spot on the island is settled right in the middle of these two converging oceans. Punta Cana is home to seemingly endless picturesque wedding locations and dreamy resorts. Punta Cana is consistently ranked in the most beautiful beaches in the world! Your wedding photos essentially take themselves with the stunning white sand beaches as a backdrop. All-inclusive resorts are king on the island, and of course there are the good, the great, and those to avoid. And trust us, that Pina Colada tastes a heck of lot better at a swim-up infinity pool bar.
If you’re in search of a real show-stopper, a full blown European Wedding is for you!
Let’s talk Greece. For those who don’t mind going farther from home, there is no place like Greece. To start, there is unbelievable, never-ending stretches of Mediterranean coastline. Do we need to go on? For arguments sake, the sheer history of Greece is enough to thrill those that aren’t particularly history lovers. Not to mention all you foodies out there will be sustained by life giving, fresh and authentic Greek food. There are several stunning picturesque wedding locations and Santorini is perhaps the most iconic. The white washed villages with beautiful blue domes all set into dramatic cliffs are beyond dreamy. A wedding in Greece will provide an unbelievable location to tie the knot. And, you and your closest family and friends will be able to experience this beautiful European destination together!
