Picture Perfect Places to Say “I Do”

Jamaica

Couples have been flocking to Jamaica for years in search of their perfect wedding, and for good reason. Jamaica is home to golden beaches, stunning mountains, and the best food. You could choose to have your wedding in a colorful garden, on the beach, or in a huge mansion.

One thing you need to know is that there’s a waiting period of 24 hours after arriving in Jamaica before you can get married. With that in mind, the best months to get married in Jamaica are November and December. This way, you avoid both hurricane season and peak tourism.

The cheapest wedding package you’ll find in Jamaica is around $1,700. For more luxuries, you will spend more, of course.

France

What better place than France (more specifically Paris) to tie the knot? It’s an extremely romantic locale with plenty of venues to choose from. The Vaux-le-Vicomte may be the most infamous, and couples who want the most showstopping venue will love this castle.

The best time of year to get married in Paris is in the spring or fall, when there are fewer tourists. The weather is mild consistently, so you don’t need to worry about avoiding bad weather.

To get married in Paris, you’ll need between $10,000 and $20,000. The Vaux-le-Vicomte is a bit more pricey and will cost upwards of $60,000.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam probably isn’t the first place to come to mind when you think of a destination wedding, but don’t discount it! Aside from stunning churches and hotels, Amsterdam is home to some large estates and outdoor venues. “Step into the marriage boat,” is also a saying in Amsterdam, as there are plenty of boats available for you to say your vows on.

If you decide to get married in Amsterdam, consider going between April and May, or between October and November. This is before and after tourist season, respectively.

As for cost, it varies based on the venue you choose. With a typical church venue, you’ll pay around $14,000 USD. But if you opt for a boat wedding, you’ll pay much less.
