To be fully transparent…I adore a beach wedding; whether it’s the ceremony, reception, or both, beach weddings are some of my all-time favorites! The beach is a perfect backdrop and can really act as a blank canvas that’s ready to be transformed to fit your vision. It’s hard to pick a favorite beach spot, but I’ve compiled my top six beachfront locales that would be dreamy for a destination wedding. From Costa Rica to Fiji to Mexico, the options are seemingly endless!
Hawaii always comes to mind when thinking of beach destinations. Nothing short of tropical paradise, Hawaii is full of pristine beaches, exhilarating cliffs, and lush mountains. This beach location is perfect for the couple seeking a tropical destination, without the added planning that goes into leaving the U.S. At the moment, we’re obsessing over The Grand Hyatt Kauai Beach & Spa on Kauai, the Garden Island. Sounds like tropical bliss, right?!
Costa Rica is such a natural, raw environment that feels much more untouched by man. Full of unspoiled tropical backdrops—including mountaintops, volcanoes, white sand beaches, and lush rainforests—Costa Rica is stunning, yet full of modern comforts. We’d recommend a Costa Rica wedding during the dry season, lasting from late December through April.
St. John and St. Thomas are small, secluded destinations in the Virgin Islands, and we can definitely guarantee you’ll enjoy the privacy and beauty of a secluded island with all the luxurious amenities of an upscale resort. If your vision for your wedding weekend includes crystal clear waters and white sand beaches, these islands are the best of the best!
Sometimes, it’s fun to be adventurous! Travel to Phuket, Thailand for a once in a lifetime experience that’s sure to wow your guests and leave you and your spouse with memories that’ll last a lifetime. Surround yourself with majestic rock formations, golden beaches, and emerald coves in beautiful Thailand. It doesn’t get much more spectacular…
Turks and Caicos epitomizes island bliss. This location is less developed and definitely a bit more upscale than much of the greater Caribbean area. Turks and Caicos is the perfect place for a walk on the beach and a slightly more intimate, romantic vibe. But, be sure to avoid hurricane season from June through November!
There are many great locations in Mexico, including Los Cabos, Cancun, and Riviera Maya. The Grand Velas Riviera Maya is an all-inclusive resort, which offers 8 different wedding venues, including a chapel in the Mayan jungle that fits up to 143 people. Definitely a one of a kind wedding experience, and sure you leave you, your spouse, and your guests immensely satisfied!
