Destination Weddings Ideas for Every Season
With a focus on smaller, more intimate weddings in 2018, this is the year for the destination wedding. If you have not decided on a particular location to say your “I dos” you may want to consider making your wedding an adventure for you and your guests. Here are four destination wedding locations that may have your guests more excited about your wedding than you are.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA:
If you’re drawn to pristine landscapes, a touch of wild west, and breathtaking mountains then Jackson Hole, Wyoming is the perfect location for your destination wedding. Known for its unbeatable skiing and snowboarding in the winter, Jackson Hole is also a sweetly romantic place for your nuptials. You’ll find just about everything you need whether you want a wild west vibe or a chic and sophisticated chalet venue.
Best Time to Visit: The unpredictability of winter in the Tetons can make it risky to plan a winter wedding in Jackson Hole. The best time to plan your destination wedding is the summer and early fall.
If you want a dramatic backdrop for your destination wedding, then look no further than Iceland. Sparsely populated, Iceland is a wild and rugged location with hot springs, active volcanoes, and waterfalls everywhere. It’s no wonder that Iceland – situated about halfway between North America and Europe – is such a popular vacation destination.
Best Time to Visit: Even in the middle of summer temperatures can still be as low as 12-celsius, so you will want to pack accordingly. If you want to experience the breathtaking northern lights, the best time to plan your destination wedding is any time between September and April.
If cultural immersion is your thing, then experiencing a traditional Thai Buddhist ceremony many be just the wedding you are looking for. Phuket offers delights for all the adventure seekers, culture mavens, and even foodies on your guest list! From its powder-white beaches to ancient Chinese ruins, there is something for everyone in your party to enjoy.
Best Time to Visit: The monsoon season runs from mid-May to October, so you will want to plan your wedding from November to February, before it gets too hot.
Breathtaking mountaintop views, unspoiled tropical backdrops – all without having to give up luxury and modernity. If this sounds like your idea of perfection, then Costa Rica is the destination wedding location for you. Costa Rica also makes a wonderful option for that couple that wants to throw an eco-friendly destination wedding; Costa Rica offers luxurious rainforest bungalows and eco-lodges.
Best Time to Visit: You will want to plan for the dry season, which is from December to April. However, the Caribbean side of the peninsula tends to be wet year-round. If you do not want to risk rain on your wedding day, it is better to stick to the Pacific side.
