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.

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.

Weirdest American Holiday Traditions

The holiday season is here and businesses across the United States are going all-out to make sure that their decorations are better than the year before. The majority of Americans get so excited about holidays that it’s easy to forget how many traditions are strangely unique to the American culture. Actually, there are a large number of uniquely American holiday traditions that seem strange to those who didn’t grow up here. Let’s explore some of the weirdest American holiday traditions that are out there today.

The World in Liquor

When you go out for a night, how many options for liquor does your home base bar have on offer? Sure, they’ve probably got some standard gins, vodkas, rums, whiskies, and tequilas—but probably not much of anything else. If you’re traveling, one of the best ways to start to get to know the local culture is to indulge in a popular local drink.

The World in Soda

Our taste buds can tell us a lot about ourselves. While giants like Pepsi and Coca-Cola still rule the worldwide soda market, smaller brands that represent local tastes have maintained their loyal followers for years in places like Switzerland and Barbados.
