Wedding Ideas to Match Their Venue

Some places are always nicer than others, so let’s get started with some of the nicest wedding destinations that you could choose from.


As far from original as it may seem, you have to agree that Paris is the undisputed City of Love! There’s no possible way that the city of good food and wine could make a mess of your big day in any way. A city that is richly loaded with a zest for life, could make your wedding more memorable than you had anticipated. Apart from the “love for love”, the city will keep your guests occupied too, thanks to its rich culture. Guest can indulge in some major sight seeing, since Paris houses some of the most popular monuments and tourist attractions ever. The Eiffel Tower, Museum of Louver, Palace of Versailles, or the multitude of chateaus… If not that, some wine tasting never hurt anybody. Bottom line, no matter what your preference, there is more than enough to pick from.

Las Vegas

When talking about Las Vegas, I wouldn’t even know where to begin! Forget affordable destination, it makes for a brilliantly wild destination too. It’s almost surprising how popular a spot this one is for weddings. Right from fancy to crazy, Vegas is like that “one stop shop” for all. Now, you definitely will find some exquisite chapels in Vegas, but exquisite chapels could be found everywhere. The real question is, will you find an Elvis everywhere? There’s hardly a person who isn’t aware of this trend that is so immensely associated with Las Vegas, so if you’ve always dreamed of being married by Elvis, go on to Las Vegas. What cannot be forgotten when talking Las Vegas is the insane number of casinos. There is no doubt about the fact that choosing this one for a destination wedding will be appreciated, that you can stay assured of.


Now, this destination is truly far out! Truth be told, it could also turn into a bit of an expensive wedding. But… It’s your big day, so enjoy it! Sydney is the largest city in Australia, and is amongst the most livable cities in the world, so why not get married there? The place is friendly, modern, and adventurous. Apart from being a brilliant choice for wedding location, there is no doubt about the fact that a wedding “Down-Under” would be just as interesting for the guests too. In addition to the popular Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, there are a number of worthwhile museums and gardens to visit. For those of you who are more into adventurous activities, turn to the Byron Bay. Snorkeling, scuba-diving, white-water rafting, trekking… There is more than you would be able to handle. And if this seems too adventurous for you, just visit the zoos, because Australia is high on its wildlife too. A wedding in Australia can truly turn into an adventurous one if you’d like it to!


Amongst the things to love about this place is the fact that along with being a great pick, it is more affordable too. One of the most popular and vivacious islands in Hawaii, Oahu is in fact nicknamed The Gathering Place. The name alone makes this place right for a wedding! The island which is the third largest of all Hawaiian islands, Oahu is also home to Hawaii’s capital, Honolulu. In fact, if it is a destination beach wedding that you’ve always dreamed of, there is no doubt that this island is the right decision. With a myriad of beaches to choose from, this is definitely the best beach destination that could ever be thought of. While the most popular beaches would undoubtedly be Waikiki Beach, Sunset Beach, and Sandy Beach, others that you could consider would be, Waimea Bay, Kaneohe Bay, Waimanalo Beach, Banzai Beach, the Pipeline and Hanauma Bay. If the choice of beaches isn’t reason enough to pick Oahu, other attractions should be. Well-known attractions like Pearl Harbor, USS Missouri, USS Arizona Memorial, Valley of Temples Memorial Park, the North Shore, and the South Shore, better known as Waikiki, are all part of Oahu.


Yet another fabulous destination for a totally chill wedding is Jamaica. It’s the perfect location for a tropical wedding, and there definitely could be nothing better than this. Although you will find the basics like the sand and the surf, and palm trees, you cannot miss the fact that it is the place for all you Rastafari lovers! Crazy as it may sound, incorporating that element into a wedding will make it the best wedding a lot of people could’ve ever seen. If you aren’t quite a fan of all that Rastafarianism, keep it simple, and basic. A fancy beach wedding is a great option too. As for your family and friends, they won’t need any icing on the cake. The very idea of a Jamaican wedding will keep them pleased.

That may be a short list of suggestions, but it is made up of some of the best. If you are looking for more, other destinations worth considering could also be Bora Bora, New Zealand, Cancun, Napa Valley maybe even Thailand, or Maui. Some of the places mentioned may not quite be amongst the cheapest, but when you want a perfect wedding, it doesn’t matter how far out you go, because it will definitely seem like money well spent. After all, there is a price to pay for everything, and if that price can get you the best wedding ever, amen to that!
