We love weddings. We know that’s kind of obvious, but when you think about the sheer range of locations available to today’s conscious and discerning couples, it’s worth saying often. We love weddings. Particularly destination weddings. And especially beach destination weddings.
We have watched the popularity of the destination wedding grow by leaps and bounds over the last several years. We couldn’t be more thrilled about that; who wouldn’t want the fairy-tale, romantic beach wedding at an exotic location? Getting married is a very personal decision that directly reflects the personal style of each couple.
A destination wedding is an event that couples usually want to share with their family and friends. Rather than celebrating with a large number of family members and friends in a local reception hall, many brides and grooms are opting to marry further away from home. Destination weddings usually involve a smaller group of the closest family members and friends and are an enjoyable and intimate experience for all involved.
Exotic and tropical locations are super popular with today’s couples who are planning a destination wedding event. There are many exotic, remote, and breathtaking locales where couples can get hitched. Some of the hottest destination wedding spots in the world include:
