Weddings — something many of us dream about and yet still when it comes to the actual planning of one, we’re overwhelmed with the number of decisions we have to make. Where do we go? Who do we invite? What means the most to us?
Destination weddings have become a popular way to blend what’s important to couples: being surrounded by their closest friends, seeing something new and having as much relaxation as possible. By picking a place far from home, you get to make the most of the vacation time you’d be using for your ceremony anyway.
Another benefit is that guests see the weddings as travel opportunities too. Many couples are sending guests on local excursions while the couple relaxes and enjoys their new union in private. With resorts hosting events like nature walks, scuba diving and paddleboarding, it’s getting easier to do.
* Riviera Maya, Mexico
Before your big day, have a meditative spa treatment at Naum Wellness Spa. Plan your ceremony on the beach or by the Riviera Maya, and keep your guests entertained with nature walks to spiritual cenote caves, an eco-cruise tour around a lagoon home to more than 100 species of birds or kayaking at the resort’s beachfront.
* Kent, England
Did you ever dream of getting married in a castle? Well, a destination wedding is the perfect time to make it come true. Surrounded by a lake, Leeds Castle in England was originally built in 1086 and was once owned by King Edward I. It has been stunningly preserved (and remodeled) in the century since and has rooms for rent, a restaurant with a view of the moat and gorgeous landscaping for a wedding. There’s a reason it’s been called the “loveliest castle in the world.”
* Camps Bay, Cape Town, South Africa
South Africa is a country of incredible beauty, and there are few better places to take it in and host the biggest party of your life than at Twelve Apostles Hotel. Nestled among the Twelve Apostles mountain range, the location is scenic and gorgeous.
* Estes Park, Colorado
If your idea of a perfect wedding is one that celebrates the outdoors and provides a relaxing getaway for guests, then The Estes Park Resort is the place for you. Set your wedding against the stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountain National Park and dine on customized catering menus. Once you’ve said I do, take a romantic stroll around Lake Estes at sunset.
* Krabi, Thailand
If you’ve never had a chance to visit Thailand before, your wedding day might be the perfect time to do it. Beautiful beaches, peaceful atmosphere and diverse natural habitats make it a must-do wedding destination. The Rayavadee resort, located in Krabi in Southern Thailand, is a top-notch choice. Their wedding package includes a spa treatment and half-day island excursion as well as a traditional Thai ceremony or monk’s blessing.
