While destination weddings look different now, they’re still a great way to ensure you have a wedding that is completely you.
Check out these 7 places which will make your wedding a grand affair:
The travel time might be a turnoff, but going to the Philippines is worth the trek. And, its affordability means you and your wedding guests can easily manage to stay much longer. The country’s tourism campaign right now is, “it’s more fun in the Philippines.” With over 7,000 islands to choose from, Philippines is a Hot Destination to get married.
- BODRUM, TURKEY
As soon as your wedding party enters the city of Bodrum, they’ll fall for the intoxicating scent of the spice market. But you’ll love this city for its luxe pampering. After all, it is your wedding day! Kick off your visit with a stay at the exclusive Maçakizi Hotel, with its award-winning Nuxe Spa. Head out via boat—naturally!—on your wedding day.
- DUBROVNIK, CROATIA
Could anyone possibly forget that gorgeous shade of blue that surrounds Dubrovnik? Whether your wedding party is large or small, it will be a sight to behold. Dubrovnik, which is nestled on the coast between Slovenia and Bosnia, is influenced by both Italian and Latin cultures while upholding its strong Croatian heritage.
- RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO
Mexico is relatively easy to get to and you also won’t have any major issues bringing in vendors from the U.S. Los Cabos and Cozumel, the two beautiful beaches of Mexico are popular choices for weddings. But, the most desired location in Mexico is Riviera Maya. Host your reception right on the beach, by the pool, or in one of many restaurants.
5. HALEKULANI, HAWAII
Believe me. Hawaii is simply worth it. Oahu, Maui, and Kauai are the most popular islands for destination weddings.The Four Seasons have three wedding-worthy properties, one of which is on Maui. If you want beachfront views for your ceremony without getting sand in your toes, stay at the Halekulani, which has a ceremony spot on a lush lawn overlooking the water.
- MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA
The most popular Caribbean wedding destination is Jamaica which has been a major hot spot among couples for decades. The couples exchange vows at sunset at the Jamaica Inn on a staircase overlooking the water. The Half Moon, Rose Hall Resort in Montego Bay offers five outdoor ceremony locations and the same number of wedding packages for easy planning.
If done right, a destination wedding can cost no more — and maybe even less — than hosting the same party at home (depending on where you live, of course).
We love Destination weddings. Don’t we?
