If you want to say I do away from home, a destination wedding has probably been on your mind. Lucky for you, your list of potential places can include more than you may think. Destination weddings don’t just have to mean beaches and 12-hour flights. In fact, hopping two states over is often considered a destination wedding. If a beach wedding or a mountain I-do sounds like your thing, take a look at a few of the best places to have a destination wedding, below!
Mexico is one place that’s always brought up when people think about a destination wedding. There are so many incredible areas to choose from—Tulum, Cozumel, and Los Cabos are just a few. People come for the clear waters and party atmosphere, not to mention the various accommodation options. You, your partner, and your guests are sure to have a fun time if you decide to have your wedding in Mexico.
This is one of our absolute favorite non-beach destination wedding spots—the beautiful options are endless. There are mountain towns galore for you and your wedding party to get in some beautiful shots. We love weddings in Telluride for a few reasons—the enchanting atmosphere and high-class accommodations are just two of them. If you want that scenic mountain backdrop in your wedding photos, you should definitely head to Colorado.
Another popular destination wedding spot is the Bahamas. It may seem overdone and overcrowded, but there are many untouched beaches waiting for you to host your wedding. A big plus is that it’s just a quick 35-minute plane trip from Florida, so it’s an easy trip for your guests to make. White sand beaches and blissful blue waters could be in your future!
Hawaii is a wonderful place to travel to no matter the occasion, but it’s perfect for destination weddings. Say your I-do’s with volcanoes or the ocean in the background, and have the wedding you’ll never forget. When you partner up with the various all-inclusive resorts for your wedding, you end up with even more bang for your buck—your guests will love it, too!
Last on our list of wonderful places to have a destination wedding is Jamaica. Weddings here are gorgeous and provide a myriad of breathtaking photo opportunities. Have your reception on the beach to watch the sun go down over the horizon with your closest friends and family as you celebrate your love. This location can also be one of the most affordable of the Caribbean islands to get married, but it also has numerous options for those looking for ultimate luxury.
