If you’ve caught a case of wanderlust, you aren’t alone. With much of the world opening back up, many are dreaming of romantic getaways, exotic adventures and relaxing retreats.
Saying “I do” at a scenic locale is a great way to see the world while celebrating your love. Choose a destination that speaks to you and celebrate your way — whether that’s with an intimate getaway for just you two or a full-fledged vacation with family and friends. From picturesque mountaintops to pristine beaches, there’s a dreamy destination for every couple.
IF YOU’RE ALL ABOUT R&R …
Nothing says romance, rest and relaxation like some fun in the sun! For a beautiful backdrop to your big day, opt for a tropical locale. Road trip to the coast for a beach getaway — the Florida Keys or scenic San Diego are popular wedding spots — or travel somewhere more exotic, like Virgin Islands National Park, Tulum or Costa Rica.
If you like to experience multiple destinations without having to unpack and repack your bag, consider a cruise. You’ll enjoy access to multiple destinations and have plenty of time to take it easy by the pool, or at the spa, between ports.
IF YOU’RE ADVENTURE SEEKERS …
Satisfy your sense of adventure by immersing yourself in a different culture or embarking on an excursion you’ll never forget. Museum hop through Europe (stopping to say “I do” along the way), taste your way through Southeast Asia or indulge your inner thrill-seeker with a nature excursion that’s off the beaten path.
Whether you prefer the sights and sounds of a new city or the rush of reaching a mountain peak, you’ll never forget the new experiences you’ll share together, during this special time. Italy’s scenic coastline, Ireland’s rolling green hills and Thailand’s rich cultural landscape are all popular backdrops for far-flung destination weddings.
IF YOU’RE HOPELESS ROMANTICS …
Let romance lead the way with a secluded and picturesque location that’s straight off a postcard. Ski the day away and then retreat to a romantic mountaintop chalet in Aspen, Colorado, take in the rugged beauty of Tucson, Arizona or enjoy the beauty (and wine, of course!) of Sonoma, California.
There are countless stateside options for a romantic and intimate destination wedding, but of course, there are picture-perfect locations all over the globe. If it’s another stamp in your passport that you’re after, consider a seaside escape to Greece or a jaunt to idyllic Iceland, an up-and-coming wedding destination.
IF YOU’RE THE LIFE OF THE PARTY …
Nothing says fun quite like Las Vegas! Whether you’d like to elope and be married by The King or surrounded by loved ones in a more traditional ceremony, there’s a venue that’s just your style. Toast to your commitment and then celebrate with dinner and a show. There really is a little something for everyone!
If Vegas isn’t quite your speed, try an all-inclusive resort on for size. From Mexico to the Caribbean, there are resorts for every budget. Most offer wedding packages and group discounts, making it a low-stress way to plan a destination wedding and include family and friends.
