Best destination wedding venues around the world
There’s nothing wrong with getting married in your hometown, whether it’s in your parents’ backyard or in the church where you grew up. Many people love the familiar, nostalgic backdrop. Others might find it a bit too rote and, well, expected. This is a great reason to have your wedding on the road, or in the air, or even at sea. By planning a destination wedding, you will make the experience unforgettable for all your guests, and especially for both of you. After all, unless you both come from the same place, “hometown” marriage only applies to half the couple. But little compares to more fringe destination wedding venues
Few things can compare to saying “yes” in front of the blue expanse of the ocean or against the backdrop of a vineyard. It doesn’t matter if you have a prior personal connection to the executive – you will be once the party is over, your guests will relish the excuse of spending their paid free time like an actual vacation, rather than flying to, say, Sioux Falls. I say this as someone from Sioux Falls – a place I love but don’t consider a wedding destination. Honestly, I’d rather meet you in Maine or Greece! Here are five of the coolest destination wedding venues to consider in the US, plus five spectacular destination wedding venues overseas, some of which are literally surrounded by the sea.
1. Cape Cod, MA
From the tip of Provincetown to Nantucket Island, few places are as storybook as Cape Cod. Guests can arrive by ferry from Boston or from a scenic drive to Cape Town itself. Your nuptials can take place in the stretches of sand dunes and guests can stay in inns straight out of a Nancy Meyers movie. You can entertain them with whale watching tours, wildlife hikes, endless bike trails or a game of golf.
