Choosing a wedding destination is definitely not one of the easiest tasks out there, especially if you want to get married somewhere abroad. There are many things to be taken into consideration and one of them is the season. This guide will help you choose the best wedding destination depending on what time of the year you want to get married.
One of the best wedding destinations in spring has to be the breathtakingly beautiful Amalfi Coast in Italy. It is the most magical setting you could ever hope to have for your special day. Its stunning sunrises, sandy beaches, sea and beautiful mountain landscape will sweep you off your feet. Crystal clear water and the bay covered in fragrant lemon trees will create a wonderful atmosphere for the wedding ceremony.
Plus, this coast offers so many important historical monuments that you can get to see and learn about while you’re there. Some of them are the ruins of ancient Pompeii, the Blue Grotto of the Island of Capri and the Old Town of Naples.
Another great option for this time of the year is in Hawaii. Although this destination is great for any time of the year, in spring it’s less expensive to plan a wedding here. There is so much about Hawaiian culture that will make your wedding a memorable experience.
Its nature is magnificent, food is amazing, and Hawaiian people are one of the friendliest and most welcoming people in the world. Not only will you have an experience of a lifetime, but you will also learn something new about a different culture while you’re there.
Summer is the most popular season for getting married, and that’s why planning a wedding abroad is not a very easy task. In case you are looking for a continental destination, Munich is a great option. It is the capital city of Bavaria and also the third-largest city in Germany. This, a very old city with a long history and a strong sense of national identity, attracts many people. Its inner-city architecture offers a very beautiful mix of different eras and styles.
This city also offers many parks that can make a great setting for a magical wedding. One of them is the English Garden which is one of the world’s largest urban parks.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a more tropical destination, go for Cape Town in South Africa. It is one of the most unusual, yet very interesting and elegant wedding destinations. It offers such diverse landscapes, mountains, valleys, deserts, but also beautiful steep coasts, sandy beaches, and rainforests. Cape Town is known as the second-largest city in South Africa, but what it’s even more famous for are its cultural attractions and beautiful white sandy beaches and lush countryside.
In autumn, one of the best places to get married is Bali. It is a perfect location which offers beautiful sandy beaches and spectacular landscapes such as rainforests, volcanoes and rice terraces. This island also has a very rich history and exotic culture. It is a perfect backdrop for special ceremonies such as these. Promising your future to your loved one under the palm trees while watching the sunset would be the most magical experience ever.
However, if you are looking for a bit more urban setting, New York in autumn is one of the most beautiful places for a wedding. The brisk weather of New York is perfect for a wedding in the city, or maybe even upstate. There are many great resorts and also many different activities you can choose to do on your wedding day. New York truly is a lively city where you can never be bored.
If your dream is to have a white winter wonderland wedding, Jukkasjärvi in Sweden is a perfect destination for you. In a quaint village in the north of the country, there is a very famous Icehotel. The sculptures in this hotel are designed by artists from all over the world. The ice church opens its doors and allows couples to get married there from December to April. Also, one of the best experiences would be to choose among Northern Beaches wedding venues. They have one of the most stunning views in the world.
Plus, you will be able to see Northern lights on your wedding night and that is a once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget.
Lastly, another great wedding destination for the winter season would be Búðir in Iceland. Its picturesque landscape and beautiful beaches are totally worth seeing. A perfect blend of stunning mountains and deep blue sea is one of the most beautiful views you will ever get to see. And after the ceremony is over, you can go and enjoy some of the most delicious dishes this island has to offer.
All things considered, all of these destinations are great options for the wedding ceremony. Just make sure to choose the right season for the best experience possible.
