As international travel has become more affordable and accessible, destination weddings are no longer reserved only for celebrities. With so many packages and options to choose from, you no longer have to confine yourself to your local registry office or church. Even if you live in a landlocked country, you can get hitched in a distant location back-dropped with a turquoise beach under the shimmering sun. This time, I’ve chosen 5 most romantic islands you should really take into consideration when planning your big day!
#1 Turtle Island, Fiji
A private island paradise with only 14 bures, Fijian villas, available, Turtle Island Resort in Fiji provides a respite from the rest of the world. Warm, azure waters, the scent of tropical flowers carried by the gentle winds and 14 secluded beaches make this island probably the most romantic place on our planet beckoning you to enjoy your stay to the fullest, to relax and reconnect with your beloved one. If you’re looking for a romantic, all-inclusive, luxurious and intimate place for tying the knot, Turtle Island Beach Wedding will certainly meet all your needs!
#2 Santorini, Greece
Would you like to add some Mediterranean spice to your big day? Consider exchanging your wedding vows in Santorini, mesmerizing island in Greece that presents the perfect combination of natural and man-made beauty. No matter if you want to celebrate on the shore of the Aegean Sea, at the top of its majestic cliff, in a charming little village or in an exclusive villa, the venue choices in Santorini are infinite! Opt for white-blue wedding colors and motifs to keep the Greek tradition alive.
#3 Paradise Island, Bahamas
Known for its white, sandy shorelines melting into the clear Caribbean waters, Paradise Island boasts numerous luxury resorts and hotels. Lyford Cay is the best wedding spot for couples looking for seclusion, since there you can be the only beach-goers around. Sandy Toes beach is also a private enclave to unwind your mind, relax and enjoy the romance. However, it’s good to know that Paradise Island is not a sleepy little Caribbean getaway untouched by time, but an island with a healthy dose of Vegas-style glitz, vibrant nightlife and fine dining.
#4 Maui, Hawaii
World-famous surfing experience, white sandy beaches, five-star resorts and various island activities are the main, but not the only reasons why Maui presents one of the top wedding (and honeymoon) destinations. If you imagine getting hitched on an astonishing landscaped garden which overlooks the vast turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean, Maui might be just what you need. With its churning waterfalls and ethereal bamboo forest, it is an ideal destination for true nature lovers. In case you decide to tie the knot in Maui, make it a weeklong affair and you won’t regret it!
#5 Bali, Indonesia
Imagine exchanging vows with your future spouse while having a view of the timeless depths of the Indian Ocean. To acquire that romantic image, choose Bali as your destination wedding location. Warm hospitality and the inherent grace of its people and mesmerizing natural beauty make Bali the crown jewel of Indonesia and one of the most romantic places to get married.
