Destination weddings have never been more popular. But with the whole wide world to choose from, how do you decide where to say “i do”?
Experts recommend holding your wedding somewhere your guests would already like to vacation at. Holding the ceremony somewhere with personal significance for you and your lover, such as the first place you went on a vacation together or somewhere you have dreamed of visiting together, can also add a layer of meaning to your special day.
And if you’re looking for further inspiration closer to home, here are three of the most beautiful wedding destinations in the United States:
