Destination weddings are a great way to shake up matrimonial traditions. More and more couples these days are ditching the local church and banquet hall for sun and sand while they tie the knot. As destination weddings become more popular, accommodation options have evolved. Where there used to be just all inclusive resorts, couples now have the choice of private villas and estates for their weddings. Here are the top destination wedding locations equipped with private villas.
The Destination: Mexico
Mexico has long remained one of the most popular destination wedding locations. It’s an accessible area with plenty of options for accommodations. The best part about getting married in Mexico is that each region has a totally different setting. Whether you’re looking for a backdrop of tropical forests in Punta Mita or white sandy beaches in Tulum you can match your style perfectly in Mexico!
