With the Royal Wedding around the corner, we got to thinking about how we “regular people” can tie the knot in an unforgettable way. Of course, the common thing to do is get married in England. However, for those who are more adventurous (and perhaps a bit less picky about the little details), destination weddings are definitely the answer. Of course, choosing the right destinations for weddings is half the battle, so we decided to narrow the list for you. We chose the best and most romantic wedding destinations from across the globe and give them to you here, in a neat and tidy package.
Mexico is the most popular wedding destination for many reasons. The stunning beaches are surrounded by turquoise sea and the weather is hot and sunny. What separates Mexico from the rest is the vast choice of accommodation. The coastline is home to hundreds of excellent quality, all inclusive hotels, all vying for a piece of the wedding pie (or cake!). Mexico is also available at a fraction of the cost of some other popular wedding destinations, making it the ideal choice without a huge burden on the wallet.
This lush island is home to all kinds of natural beauty. Stunning beaches turn into lush mountains and mountains to waterfalls. Jamaica is home to more all-inclusive hotels than anywhere else in the Caribbean, which makes it the ideal choice for wedding parties and honeymoons. All that’s left is to walk down the aisle to the beat of reggae.
The south side of the Dominican Republic, known as Punta Cana, is a wonderful destination for a romantic wedding. Unlike its Northern counterpart (Puerto Plata), Punta Cana captures the serenity and beauty of the Caribbean Sea. Turquoise waters and endless stretches of white sand beaches lined with plenty of luxury all-inclusive hotels makes for the perfect wedding destination. Bring your snorkeling gear!
If you’re looking for a gorgeous destination wedding that certainly won’t hurt the wallet, look no further than the Greek Islands. Stunning beaches and beautiful scenery can be enjoyed only a short flight away, with an abundance of All Inclusive options to keep everyone in your party entertained. You may even find enough of your budget left over to take a second honeymoon!
Although the flight is very long no matter where in the world you are, the beauty of Hawaii is very well worth it. Besides being one of the most stunning, serene, and romantic destinations on the planet, it offers all the modern conveniences you could ever imagine. Slightly more strenuous on the wallet than the other places listed, a destination wedding in Hawaii promises to be one of the most memorable experiences of your entire life – certainly not to be confused with an every-day holiday. You will have a great excuse to go back to celebrate those many special anniversaries.
