The Top 5 Destination Wedding Locations in the World

You may not be familiar with the term “destination wedding,” but they are gaining in popularity around the world.  For many couples, their dream of having a destination wedding began many years ago, and they would not have their wedding any other way.  You may be wondering – what is a destination wedding and why has it become so popular over time?

A destination wedding is simply a wedding where you need to travel to another location, typically a place that is far away from your current city.  There are some that don’t believe a destination wedding needs to be far away to qualify as a destination wedding.  However, most couples probably wouldn’t be happy with planning a “destination wedding” when the location is merely a 2-3 hours drive away.  To qualify as a true destination wedding, usually the bride and groom travels to a place that is often special to them, perhaps where memories were previously made, or has a specific feature (such as a beach or a historical landmark), and it usually involves a decent amount of travel away from home, usually involving air travel.
