There are a lot of mixed opinions on the destination wedding, but I think we can all agree that the first thing we think of when we hear “destination wedding” is a beach on an island somewhere ( Jamaica, Dominican, Hawaii, etc). Techincally, a destination wedding is a wedding that takes place any where that is outside of the area you live.
I like to think outside of the box when it comes to destination weddings. There are so many great destinations in North America, which make it easier for your guests to travel, and can help keep costs low!
Some of the places I’d love to plan a destination wedding…?
- New Orleans
- Anywhere in Florida if you want the beach feel
- Napa Valley
- Laguna Beach
- Savannah ( I mean really, look how AMAZING the above photo is- Can you even imagine being married under that??)
- Nova Scotia
There are so many beautiful places that are so full of character and charm! If you’re up for traveling and you want something truly different from the other weddings you’ve attended, consider a more local, non- island destination wedding!
