Location highlights: The Caribbean, with its azure oceans, white sandy beaches, and a variety of all-inclusive resorts, is the first on our list to hold your nuptials. It provides the perfect setting for a romantic beach wedding and a honeymoon location for every beach-loving couple.
The Dominican Republic, specifically Punta Cana – the most popular destination in the beautiful regions offers an 800-mile of super-fine sandy beaches for your wedding.
Punta Cana is home to some of the best beaches in the world. Take your pick from a long list of all-inclusive resorts that offers hassle-free planning with wedding packages and planners. The island’s 20-mile coast is littered with coconut palms and bordered by pristine shores. If you prefer a more serene location, the beaches of the north and northeast coasts are less crowded.
Best time of the year to get hitched: You’re in luck because the Dominican Republic offers a warm-weather all year round, making it easy to plan a wedding anytime.
2. Caribbean – Jamaica
Location highlights: Plenty of globe-trotters call it home and there are many reasons why. Jamaica is not only about beaches and palm trees, the vibrant country is steeped in culture and tradition. Reggae, Rastafarianism, healthy rainforests, amazing food, and a laid-back atmosphere.
Planning a destination in Jamaica is pretty easy with a variety of all-inclusive resorts available to you. The best thing about getting married here is that you have affordable venue options and super luxe options like private villas that come with personal chefs, housekeeping, and security.
Montego Bay should be high up on your list if you’re looking for first-class service and convenience. Negril offers a scenic backdrop for intimate sunset ceremonies. While the gardens of Ocho Rios make an amazing setting for intimate bridal and wedding ceremonies. Jamaica has it all for every couple out there.
Best time of the year to get hitched: Best to avoid March – spring break season, and the hurricane season from June through November.

Location highlights: Hawaii is the ultimate vacation spot for the adventurous couple. It’s also one of the most idyllic places to tie to knot. The Big Island, like what the name suggests, is the biggest island in Hawaii and it offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.
It has a diverse topography and the landscape varies as you travel around the island. And that’s the most amazing thing about the Big Island. The west coast, Kona, has a lunar-like landscape, while the north and east coasts are enveloped by greenery. Your guests won’t run out of things to do – from trekking, horseback riding, snorkelling, or just lazing on the beach.
Best time of the year to get hitched: Anytime! Hawaii has warm temperatures during the day. And even in the winter season, the rain showers are mild and short.
Location highlights: Not far from Australia, Fiji boasts of 300 islands, and it’s known for the friendliest people, lush foliage, and healthy marine life. It’s an ideal wedding destination for Aussies because of its proximity. It’s the perfect spot for your nature-loving guests, who can feed sharks, and dive the ocean for sunken ships, and a World War II aircraft. It also has challenging terrains if you’re looking for adventure. Your entourage can trek the sand dunes, ascend the vertical face of Joske’s Thumb, hike the Mount Korobaba Range, or go white-water rafting down the Wainikoro Aluva River.
Best time of the year to get hitched: From May to October. It’s the dry season in Fiji
5. French Polynesia – Tahiti

A destination wedding like no other. – – – – Photo: @hiltonmoorea #tahiti #borabora #beautifuldestinations #relax #honeymoon #wedding #island #paradise #trip #couple #anniversary #romantic #view #travel #bride #love #inspiration #adventure #luxury #luxurytravel #sunset #travelgram #wanderlust #vacation #tahiticom #mooreawedding #tahitiwedding #destinationwedding #hiltonmoorea
Location highlights: Picturesque landscape lined with palms, and packed with fragrant vanilla farms, bright flowers, and Insta-worthy rain forests. But, the main reason why Tahiti is one of the best places to get married is that it gets relatively few tourists. You and your guests can enjoy a fairly cheap destination wedding without the crowds if you know where to look.
As for the things that your guests can do aside from lounging at the beautiful beach, you can arrange for a city tour in the capital city of Papeete, where you’ll find interesting spots like Marche du Papeete (central market) for back pears, carvings, shells, vanilla, coffee and perfumes. For avid surfers, hit the beaches of Papeenoo, Punaauia, and Paea.
Best time of the year to get hitched: The dry season runs from May to October.
