Hot Spots for Destination Weddings

America the beautiful is home to a dazzling array of historic wonders, natural beauties, cultural sights, and more. For a couple looking to plan a wedding that is a little bit non-traditional, there are limitless options for locales. Here are eight amazing spots for destination weddings your guests will never forget.

1. Miami, Florida

With all of the warmth and beauty of a tropical destination with a much lighter pricetag, Florida offers a practical yet beautiful option for beach wedding lovers. Many spots in Florida offer great locations for a wedding, but Miami is also able to serve up the international flavor and exotic appeal that many U.S. spots are missing. Check out Delano Hotel for beautiful features such as a pool with underwater music and all-white decor perfect for wedding accommodations.

2. Walt Disney World

For a couple who are children at heart, there’s no better location for a wedding than the place where dreams come true. Walt Disney World does more than offer a cliche fairy tale wedding, their staff can help you to create the theme you’ve always dreamed of. Old Hollywood glamour abounds at Disney Hollywood Studios, or sophisticated international cuisine can be incorporated in Epcot park. Disney is sure to entertain your guests and create the experience you are looking for.

3. Savannah, Georgia

If a dream wedding includes feeling like the ultimate Southern belle, there’s no place like Savannah for a wedding. The juxtaposition of tradition and modernity creates a unique environment for your special day, and Southern hospitality makes planning your wedding at one of Savannah’s venues a true team effort. Check out one of Savannah’s many beautiful bed and breakfasts, such as Presidents’ Quarters Inn, for a quaint setting that gives all the best of this beautiful Southern city.

4.  Niagara Falls, NY

Well known as a popular honeymoon spot, this majestic waterfall also has many venues equipped to perform a beautiful wedding ceremony for you and your guests. The backdrop of the falls is perfect for gorgeous photo opportunities, and the surrounding tourist town is sure to entertain your guests. You can even tie the knot on the famous Maid of the Mist tour boat as travels through the falls.

5. Redwood Forests, CA

Northern California is home to romantic countrysides spotted with vineyards, culinary delicacies, and more. One of the most romantic sites to tie the knot for nature lovers is the Redwood Forest, where you can say “I do” among the majestic redwood trees. The natural setting is understated and elegant, and makes the perfect backdrop to a romantic wedding where all eyes are on you.

6. The Art Institute of Chicago

Second in size only to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, this art museum provides weddings for the most cultured of couples. Offering spaces ranging in artistic style to suit anyone’s needs, this is a perfect location for a very unique ceremony. Chicago is also the perfect city for entertaining all the guests who make the trek to your destination wedding.

7. Juneau, Alaska

While it may seem questionable to place Juneau on a list of “hot” spots for weddings, it is a beautiful and unique location to tie the knot. Here, you can actually get married on the face of a glacier. Or, trek to a slightly warmer spot where you can hold the ceremony with beautiful mountains in the background while your guests keep an eye out for whale and sea otter sightings.

8. Luray, Virginia

The Shenandoah valley offers picturesque views of the Blue Mountains, but that isn’t what makes this a unique spot for a wedding. Here, you can actually go exploring through limestone caverns and select one to get married in. Caves may not sound romantic, but with beautiful flowstone formations and cave pools, you can find an ideal wedding venue underneath the surface.
