All couples want their wedding to be as beautiful and memorable as possible. For this reason, many couples choose to get married in a variety of locations for a number of reasons. Maybe you're considering getting married in another country or at a resort that is not in your local area, and if so, there are a number of things to consider.
It is of course very romantic to get married on a tropical beach or at a place that has personal significance for you both - perhaps the place where you met while on vacation - or you may wish to choose a specific place because of the beauty of it. Here are a few of the most popular wedding destinations.
Caribbean resorts are extremely popular for weddings. What could be more romantic than saying your vows on a perfect, white sandy beach, with the sound of the ocean accompanying your words under a tropical sun that ensures perfect conditions for your all important photographs. If you decide that the Caribbean is the perfect setting for your special day, shop around to get the best deal.
Having a wedding in an area where wine is produced is becoming ever more popular with couples. Not only will you have a beautiful setting for your wedding - which you may choose to hold outside amongst the stunning vines - but you'll also be able to have local wine and champagne at your reception. Many vineyard owners have purpose built rooms in which to hold your reception and will bedeck them with glorious vines and flowers to make your wedding breakfast as special as it can be.
Married on a mountaintop
Imagine getting married in a place where you will literally be among the clouds! Lots of couples are choosing to get married on a mountaintop simply because of the breathtaking beauty of such a location. Not only is it a truly romantic setting for the ceremony and reception, it's a perfect setting for your wedding photographs. The ceremony can be as formal or informal as you wish; being at the top of a mountain doesn't mean you have to sacrifice elegance!
Choosing your ideal venue
Most couples have a clear idea of where they'd like to be married and what sort of ceremony and reception they want but be sure that you both sit down and talk about it. Cost will of course be a factor and you'll need to take into account how your guests will get to your wedding!
Wherever you decide to hold your wedding, it's sure to be a beautiful occasion that will be a treasured memory. The setting for it can make it that bit more special of course, particularly if it has some significance to you, the bride and groom. There are no rights and wrongs with a wedding; whether it's held in your own backyard or on a cruise ship that's sailing around the world, as long as it's special to you, that's all that matters.
