Best Wedding Destinations 2022/2023

Are you considering a destination wedding abroad? Before you even start dreaming of the cake, bouquet and compiling your wedding guest list, the first thing you should do is narrow down exactly where you want to get married.

With so many destinations around the world that you can tie the knot, the options can get a little overwhelming. Consider the following questions before choosing your destination – How many guests are attending? Do you want a legally bonding wedding or a blessing? What time of the year are you getting married? And what is your budget?

Don’t worry if you’re still unsure, we explain below some of our best wedding destinations that are trending for 2021 and 2022 to help you decide on your picture-perfect setting. As well as narrowing down where is good for your budget, the time of the year and the best for religious ceremonies.

Caribbean Weddings

Sun kissed islands with warm turquoise waters, swaying palm trees and soft white sands – the Caribbean is truly paradise for couples looking to get hitched. Caribbean weddings are legally bonding, or if you prefer, there’s the option for a blessing too.

The beauty about a Caribbean wedding is the variety of islands that you can get married on. Choose from dreamy backdrops, such as the majestic Piton Mountains in St Lucia or the tropics of Jamaica with waterfalls, lush jungles and soft white beaches.
