Destination weddings have become very popular in the last decade, and they keep winning our hearts with the idea of a perfect getaway wedding. But if you don’t already have a certain destination in your mind, the question is where to start and how to choose? If you are standing in front of a world map with no clue where to look, here is a small selection of dreamy wedding destinations that might help you decide.

Los Angeles, California

Top 5 Destination Wedding Locations Los Angeles California

Being the third largest state in land area, California has it all. Vineyards, deserts, beaches, mountains, great cities, rustic ranches and all of that followed by mild Mediterranean climate. Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? West Coast sounds like a perfect wedding destination, with Los Angeles being the very popular choice. It offers all sorts of venues. You can get married on a yacht in the middle of the sea, on some of the most popular departures like Marina Del Rey, Long Beach or Newport Beach. There are beautiful venues among the many vineyards California is known for, such as Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu. If you are up to something fancier, you can go for renting one of the British architecture castles up the Santa Monica Mountains.

Capri, Italy

Top 5 Destination Wedding Locations Capri Italy

If you’ve ever been to Italy, then there’s no need to convince you any further. The whole of Italy is one beautiful, rustic place, with historical monuments at every corner and enchanting nature all around. Among many Italian islands, world-famous for their beauty, the one that really stands out as a wedding destination is Capri. The architecture of this place will make your wedding unique. Small houses, ancient squares, and narrow streets full of flowers are adding up to the charm of his place. People here are friendly, with a full heart, and ready to go over the borders of formal service to make your dream wedding beyond perfect. The specific and marvellous Mediterranean cuisine and wine will only be an asset to the perfect atmosphere created on a private beach, with candles and lanterns, fresh breeze and your loved one saying ’’I do’’.


Top 5 Destination Wedding Locations Ireland

If you have always dreamed about a fairytale wedding, then Ireland is the choice for you. With incredible nature, emerald hills, oceanside cliffs, grand castles hiding between lush gardens, this highly romantic country will take your breath away. If you are planning on paying big bucks for your wedding day, renting some of the old Ireland castles will make your day unforgettable. These castles hold a rich history and authentic atmosphere, including the acres of green field surrounding them. If you are more of a big-city fan, then Dublin is a perfect urban destination with, again, historic appeal, but also a great Irish beer to make your guests very happy.


Top 5 Destination Wedding Locations Bali

If you are a true lover of the exotic destinations, look no further. Bali has everything you need for a perfect wedding. Let’s start with the location. Bali has more than one authentic feature, such as black beaches, rice paddies, authentic spiritual and cultural scenes with the incredible views. It is as exotic as it gets, for sure. You can choose between the jungle, top of the volcanic mountain, the middle of a rice paddy or on an intimate beachside. Bali venue options are almost endless, and there are plenty of experienced wedding planners to sort everything for you. Since Bali is an extremely popular wedding destination, it is pretty affordable. The great thing about Bali is that you might as well stay for your honeymoon after the wedding is done. Think about it- the wedding is over, the guests have left, and all you need to do is to rent a cabin in the middle of a jungle or on a private beach and the perfect honeymoon can start.


Top 5 Destination Wedding Locations Croatia

Although being very similar to Italian islands mentioned before, Croatian islands and seaside have a special, unique vibe. A peaceful atmosphere, followed by the scent of pine trees lingering in the air and a crystal clear water around gives these islands an almost magical, calming effect. In cities like Rovinj, you can have a beautiful rocky cliff venue with the perfect sunset. Dubrovnik, on the other hand, will enchant you with its amazing architecture, contrasting the sea in a perfect harmony of colors and giving it all a historic look. Croatia can also be a great combination of a wedding and the honeymoon, offering a lot of charming and private options for a perfect post-wedding time with your new spouse. 

Choosing a perfect destination for your dream wedding can be challenging, alongside the organization of the whole thing and getting all the people there. Luckily, there are plenty of professionals today who will gladly share your stress of planning the wedding. Yours is only to show up and enjoy your special day.

  1. Wow, loved each one of these options! Getting married in Capri would be such a dream, although Croatia looks somewhat similar and a bit more unique. I wouldn’t mind being a guest anywhere from this list, too! 😉
