Top 10 Destination Wedding Venues

There are so many different reasons you would want to plan a destination wedding – from a place with sentimental value, to loving to travel and wanting a different scene, to just wanting to get outta dodge. With so many beautiful venues all around the world we've compiled a list of some of our favorites

Posted on

1. The GlenLary Estate | Lexington, Kentucky

It's kinda the perfect setup. The main house for a beautiful ceremony backdrop and then head to the barn for a rustically elegant reception. Or if you want to stick close to the main house, enjoy cocktails on the covered patio by the pool and have your reception under a sailcloth tent. Yoga by the pool in the morning for the girls and a quick dip for the guys during lunch. The gals can take over the main house to get ready and the guys can hang out in the log cabin. You can't go wrong at The GlenLary Estate

2. La Quinta Resort, A Waldorf Astoria Resort | La Quinta, California

With two outdoor spots to choose from, my favorite is probably La Casa Patio (it used to be a private residence!) Surrounded by lush greens, bright pops of florals and palm trees fo' dayz, La Quinta Resort is where you wanna be if you want a touch of tropic, but high-class elegance. No matter if you want to have a small and intimate affair or a huge bash with up to 1800 of your closest friends, you're gonna find the perfect spot on the La Quinta grounds.

3. The Ritz-Carlton | Reynolds, Lake Oconee, Georgia

The Ritz on Lake Oconee is exactly where you want to go if you want to experience the 5-star experience of The Ritz combined with the laid back nature of The South. It's almost as if you're secluded in your own little slice of high-class heaven. You have 7 areas of the resort to choose the perfect spot; the barn for a more rustic chic feel, the forest for a bono chic feel, and the ballroom for a chic chic vibe. Can't really go wrong, now can you?

5. Race + Religious | New Orleans, Louisiana

Modern industrial chic at it's finest. Race + Religious is saturated in history and tradition are our absolute favorite, so it's no surprised we're drawn to this Creole Cottage. Exposed brick, chipped plaster, courtyards, balconies... all in the heart of NOLA. You can even have a Second Line Parade, walking through the streets with a brass band, waving umbrellas and handkerchiefs. Sign us up!

6. St. Kitts Marriott Resort | St. Kitts, West Indies

The Marriott / Via weddings.stkittsmarriott.com

St. Kitts has a piece of our hearts and the St. Kitts Marriott Resort is top notch. Spend your days on South Friar's Bay, popping over to Nevis, dodging monkeys... and dodging more monkeys. Hike a volcano, play a round of golf, shop downtown, or take a quick drive around the island. Experience true island living without the hustle and bustle of a heavily visited tourist town. So basically, if you don't get married on St. Kitts, book your honeymoon to stop on St. Kitts or book a little villa and stay for the week.

7. Vizcaya Museum & Gardens | Miami, Florida

We're gonna give you a minute to pick your mouth up off that floor. Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is beyond gorgeous. Can you imagine walking into this place, let alone saying your "I do's" here? Classic, elegant, traditionally beautiful with the perfect touch of historic charm. Take a stroll through the gardens, wander through the house oogling the antiques, or just sit out by the water and daydream.

8. Farmette | Lyons, Colorado

Our Love is Loud / Via ourloveisloud.com

Four words. Alpacas, llamas, goats and chickens. Sure, sure they have a beautiful sailcloth tent and a vintage airstream bridal suite. But the goats, you guys! Farmette is tucked just a few minutes outside of Denver, Colorado and offers some spectacular views that I wouldn't even be able to begin to describe.

9. The Parker Palm Springs | Palm Springs, California

A design icon settled in Southern California, The Parker Palm Springs is one of those venues where it seems just about anything goes. It can be modern and sleek, kitschy and elegant or tropical and fun. Pattern, color, texture, and a little shocking - anything goes at The Parker.

10. Grand Villa Argentina | Dubrovnik, Croatia

Lang Thomas Photography / Via langthomasphotography.com

Okay so this may be super destination, but sometimes ya just gotta get out of the country! Whether you're a Game of Thrones junkie or you just love a beautiful coast, Dubrovnik will take your breath away. The food, the Old City, the people, and the Adriatic Sea make this spot a must-visit... wedding or not.
