Our Favorite Destinations for a Dream Wedding
The best destination weddings I’ve ever been to all had one thing in common: A fab location! But ask any couple, and they’ll tell you that choosing one is not only the first important decision you’ll make – it’s also the most stressful.
So, what is the best destination for weddings?
That’s a question I get asked a lot. Everyone’s different, so it’s impossible to single out just one place as the absolute best destination for weddings. But there is a spot out there that is perfect for YOU. And I’ll help you find it. You might be dreaming of a barefoot ceremony on a white-sand beach…
Or just an ocean view without ever having to set foot in the sand…
But maybe you want something completely out of the ordinary like waterfalls, mountains or even an erupting volcano as your backdrop. Do you want all-inclusive luxury or a rustic setting? This guide has a nice mix of everything. Some of these you’ve heard of and some you’ve probably never considered.
