Spring Destination Wedding? Suggestions for Perfect Venues

Weddings are the quintessence of romance. Doesn’t every bride dream of the perfect day, perfect place, happiness—and romance? Be transported by these exotic and awesome locations.

Different Places to See

Santorini, Greece is a small island in Aegean Sea. With its pristine villas and even more pristine blue waters lapping at alabaster beaches, it is a hot spot for Europeans. Even the name sounds romantic. To keep with Greek tradition, choose a blue-and-white motif. Whether you want to say your vows on the beach, in a charming village, or atop a majestic cliff, Santorini is a charismatic locale.

Angsana Velavaru, Maldives. Would a coconut leaf thatched-roofed wedding chapel that floats on the water satisfy your desire for adventure and romance? This venue provides for a more solemn ceremony, but there are other glamorous places to hold your ceremony like under water at a house reef or a beautiful, secluded island. Nestled in the South Nilandhe Atoll in the island of Maldives, Angsana is committed to offering guests a luxurious, pampered stay as well as a delicious wedding feast.

Fiji. Envision an exquisite day flavored by the delightful fragrance of exotic flowers and colored softly by afternoon sun sparkling on the sea. Once in Fiji, you are operating on island time, slowing down and taking a deep breath. Situated approximately 1,300 miles northeast of the North Island of New Zealand, and about the same distance east of Australia’s Gold Coast, Fiji offers many 5-star resorts, and less expensive locations with complete wedding packages. Fiji is becoming a favorite for destination weddings.

Suwarrow was a favorite of Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson. She called it the most romantic island in the world, but it was not the model for her husband’s famous novel, Treasure Island. This enchanting destination is a low coral atoll in the Pacific Islands. East Island features pink sand and a natural hot pool.

Stylish settings, fine cuisine and wines, gracious hosting and luxurious accommodation, make a lodge wedding in New Zealand a unique experience. A memorable destination, New Zealand offers a grand selection of venues. Photographs in the gardens or with the backdrop of the ocean, a forested hillside, or a mountain range give your wedding a truly unforgettable flair.

Imagine your wedding on a terrace overlooking the beautiful hillside buildings, rustic towns, and a spectacular view of the Mediterranean. Ravello is a romantic town on the Amalfi Coast and is Italy’s most dazzling seaside-wedding getaway. It’s famous for a centuries-old church, relaxing scenery, authentic restaurants, and great music, all of which set the mood for merry drinking and laughter.

Close to Home but Just as Beautiful

Aspen, Colorado is for those who relish lavish amenities and natural beauty. There are lots of things for guests and the bride and groom to do in Aspen. Hold your ceremony in a field overlooking the majestic mountains of Colorado. Want a real winter wedding complete with snow? Aspen is your destination.

With miles of oceanfront, many accommodations from which to select, historic settings, and friendly folks, the Outer Banks of North Carolina can make your dreams come true with a traditional or trendy wedding…a serene or sophisticated beach wedding. Marriage is a journey. The Outer Banks is a wonderful place to begin that loving trip. You can also see the wild horses of the Outer Banks, supposedly descendants of wrecked Spanish ships.
