Whether you’re looking for a faraway island or a cosmopolitan city to host your dream wedding ceremony, bear in mind that the perfect destination is just a flight away. WTM says ‘I do’ to three stunning locations where you can plan your big day and honeymoon at the same time.
If you love being one with nature, this is your dream destination! Experience matrimony in a natural paradise of tropical beaches and volcanoes. Hike through dense rainforests with your wedding guests, then spend a relaxed afternoon on a soft, white-sand beach while sipping on cocktails. Costa Rica offers a plethora of exciting land and sea activities to add a touch of thrill to your event. For a more luxurious affair, head to the western part of Osa Peninsula, which provides an unforgettable setting to recite your vows. Get your surf on or check into a yoga or eco retreat right after and start your honeymoon.
Las Vegas is the city for the free-spirited, no-fuss couple. Whether you opt to wed at the swanky south end of the boulevard or the retro reminiscent Fremont Street, it will be an action-packed time. Choose to host a grand ceremony at one of the lavish five-star properties, or have a chilled out union at an epic pool party hosted by superstar DJs. For a bolder move, breeze through your vows at a drive-through chapel and get on with the adventure of married life. Outside the main strip, the canyons near Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam are show-stopping backdrops.
The famous city is known for its colossal shopping malls, opulent shows such as ‘Cirque Du Soleil’ and exhilarating theme parks.
From May to October, Greece comes alive with couples and their families flocking to its islands to get hitched. Providing a dreamy, romantic backdrop with delectable Mediterranean cuisine and fun-filled traditions, Greece is famous for its budget-friendly, indulgent choices. For an intimate ritual, head to Crete. It boasts the remnants of an ancient civilisation with panoramic beachfronts, giving you the best amalgamation of history and culture. Corfu is defined by Venetian and French architecture and stunning bays. Add an element of theatrics to your ceremony by heading to Santorini, where whitewashed villages set a sharp contrast to dark cliff views. Mykonos tops the list for a cosmopolitan vibe and a bubbling beach-party scene.
