The Best Locations for a Destination Wedding

Chances are if you’re over the age of 20, you’ve gone to a lot of weddings this year, or you’ve seen someone’s wedding photos on Facebook. Attending a wedding, and all of the emotions that go along with that, often makes people question what they would do for their own wedding. Maybe you would have a better band, different food, or even move the entire thing to a remote destination.

If you’re secretly daydreaming about a destination wedding, here are some ideas to fuel your fantasy. These are some of the best locations in the world for a destination wedding.

Baja California, Mexico

If you’re looking for a beach location for your destination wedding, look no further than Baja California, a Mexican state which shares a border with California. The beaches along this sandy strip are beautiful, and the landscape is full of scenic mountains overlooking the ocean, which makes it a more interesting option than some other places in Mexico, like Cancun or Playa Del Carmen, which fill up rapidly with tourists.

One great option in Baja California is The Resort at Pedregal, a beautiful venue which will help organize your wedding for you and can accommodate up to 150 guests. While rooms can get pricey, amenities, such as infinity pools and wedding concierges, can’t be beat.

Kent, England

The green fields of Kent, England have long been known as one of England’s most fertile spaces. Kent is the county just south of London, which makes it an ideal destination wedding choice. There are three major airports in London, making it easy for both you and your guests to fly into.

Plus, there are plenty of castles around that are available for rent. Stay at a local inn for a more reasonably priced affair, or go all out and book a suite at a castle for the night. Leeds Castle is a stunning example of Renaissance architecture that’s located just an hour outside of London.

New York City is the ultimate destination wedding location because it’s just so versatile. There’s something for everyone. Whether your perfect wedding takes place in a grand hotel, like The Plaza, or whether you want to rent out a cool bar in Brooklyn and invite all your friends for a party, New York City has it all.

NYC is serviced by three major airports, and their world-renowned public transit system makes it super easy to get around. Prices will vary from venue to venue, but anything in Manhattan will be pricey. If you’re looking for a way to save money, organize your wedding in a borough, like Brooklyn or Queens.
