Destination weddings give us an opportunity to create unique and unforgettable memories of our perfect day. Choosing the ideal spot for your destination wedding is not an easy task, and in most cases, it depends on logistics and what you have envisioned for that day. Some couples dream of getting married at a romantic European capital, like Paris or Prague, while others opt for a dreamy Caribbean beach wedding while the sun disappears into the ocean in the background.
In this article, you will have the opportunity to discover some of the most beautiful and breathtaking wedding destinations our planet has to offer.
Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives
Landaa Giraavaru is an island in the Baa Atoll in the Maldives. This is one of the many resort islands in this area. What makes it perfect for a wedding destination is its floating wedding pavilion in the middle of the ocean. This stunning pavilion is only accessible by boat and is not equipped to accommodate many more than the betrothed, so this makes it the perfect choice for an intimate ceremony. A special feature here is definitely the glass floor, so apart from the memorable views, you will also have the opportunity to have the colorful and bustling marine life included on your wedding day.
Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman
Located on the western shore of Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands), the Seven Mile Beach is one of the most well-known beaches in the Caribbean. Its clear waters and coral sands are attracting visitors from all over the world. It is also the perfect spot for an underwater wedding. So if you are feeling adventurous, you can get a certified scuba-diving minister and have the ceremony surrounded by beautiful corals, fish, and other colorful sea creatures. This destination is also a great option for a romantic, white sand beach wedding, with amazing turquoise water and stunning views.
Sydney Harbour, Australia
Sydney is one of the most popular wedding destinations in the world. There are numerous romantic venues all around this lively city. So, for your perfect Sydney wedding, you’ll need to opt for a trusted wedding car service to help you navigate with style through the bustling streets of this beautiful city. What makes the harbor such a memorable spot are, among other things, the recognizable landmarks, like the Harbour Bridge and the opera House. If you want the perfect location for a small ceremony under the stars, you should check out Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This lookout location provides the most classical views of the harbor and Sydney itself. Saying I DO overlooking Port Jackson with the sun setting in the background, what could be more perfect?
Kyoto Botanical Garden, Japan
A romantic cherry blossom wedding is a dream come true for many couples. Cherry blossoms serve as wonderful backdrops for wedding photos, as they bring out the beauty of the bridal dress. The Kyoto Botanical Garden is one of the most popular cherry blossom spots in Kyoto. It houses more than 500 cherry blossom trees and is also known to be one of the oldest gardens in Japan. Just be careful to book your destination wedding for just the right season. New trees start to sprout from April to June, making spring the ideal season of fresh flowers.
Finding the perfect spot for a destination wedding is not an easy task, but it’s definitely worth the hassle. By choosing the right destination your wedding becomes your honeymoon and you get to create the most amazing memories with you partner and the people who love you the most in this world.
