Wedding Destinations

THE WORLD’S MOST STUNNING DESTINATION WEDDING LOCATIONS

When it comes to treating guests to new adventures and an unforgettable wedding celebration, nothing compares to a destination wedding. Choosing from dozens of the world’s most stunning wedding destinations may seem overwhelming, so it’s important to envision exactly what type of setting and style you require. An intimate group of 20 guests may be perfectly suited for a castle wedding in England’s countryside – or perhaps renting out an entire Caribbean resort for a guest list of 400 is more fitting. From cities to tropical getaways, there’s a destination wedding location perfect for every couple.
 
While couples often choose their city, state, or country based on logistics, a destination wedding is an opportunity to experience unfulfilled travel wishes. Luxurious properties, sweeping views, first-class amenities, and delectable cuisine are just some aspects that turn destination wedding weekends into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 
 
Who hasn’t dreamt of a rustic escape to Tuscany, spending time at a sprawling villa like Il Palagio, surrounded by the Italian countryside? Maybe a wedding at the Aman Venice is more apropos, or an outdoor affair in the pristine region of Lake Como. For an exotic wedding destination, places like Thailand and Bali are favored amongst brides and grooms.
 
Stateside, you’ll find some of the most idyllic destination wedding resorts if you just visit another city. Villa Vizcaya in Miami and the Breakers Palm Beach are perfect for a Florida wedding, while New York City offers some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, including the Plaza, the Four Seasons, and the Mandarin Oriental. California is another prime wedding destination, with luxe resorts like Bacara and Pelican Hill – not to mention, Nobu in Malibu, which is a fantastic choice for smaller weddings. Craving something a bit more low-key, but without sacrificing glamour and sophistication? Head over to Newport, Rhode Island for a classic New England wedding at the gorgeous Castle Hill Inn.
 
Take your time in exploring our curated list of wedding destinations, villas, museums, and luxury five-star resorts from around the world. This collection was carefully selected so you could find the perfect corner of the earth in which to celebrate love.
Enjoy every minute – bon voyage!
