Planning a wedding is a tough task. It can take months – perhaps years in some cases – of hard work to ensure your big day goes off with a bang. And that’s just for when you decide to hold your ceremony and reception in your local area. If you are planning on going abroad to tie the knot, it’s another world of headaches and planning problems – however, there are a few incredible destinations that just might be worth it. In today’s guide, we’re going to take a look at some of the best wedding destinations in the world right now – read on to find out more.
OK, so Fiji is a long way from home – halfway around the world, in fact. But the hundreds of islands that make up this beautiful country will give you an experience you will never forget. There are 332 islands of Fiji, and each of them offers something a little different, but all will deliver you the picture-postcard perfection that all brides and grooms desire for their big day. It’s something of a paradise, pure and simple, and it’s also worth knowing that the Tokoriki Island Resort in the north of the Mamanuca islands regularly features as one of the world’s most romantic hotels.
Of course, we have some beautiful islands close to home, so there isn’t quite the need to travel halfway around the world if you can’t. A Hawaii wedding is one of those things that we all think about at some point, and it’s a popular choice for many engaged couples. The beaches, palm trees, and weather are a huge pull, of course, but there is also the incredible, star-filled skies in the evenings to enjoy. Romance is never too far away in Hawaii, and it’s one of the perfect spots on the planet to say ‘I do.’
You’re probably noticing there is something of a beach theme, here. But hey, who doesn’t want to get married surrounded by golden sands, crystal clear water, and palm trees, right? The Bahamas is another ideal place for a wedding, and as long as you stay clear of the main tourist traps – in Nassau, for example – you will find a romantic location for your ceremony almost at every turn. Take a look at the pink sands of Harbour Island for something truly sensational or head across to the amazing island of Abacos in a boat for your big day.
The Greek Islands
Greece is a wonderful country to visit at any time. But it’s a perfect, romantic destination for your wedding ceremony, too. Again, you can choose from a huge range of islands, from the quiet and contemplative Crete through to the cosmopolitan vibes of Mykonos. Whatever Greek island you choose, however, you are sure to have an incredible day – and vacation. The only issue you have is persuading your guests to join you!
