US destination wedding: The best of both worlds

US-based destination wedding spots

Warm weather, a small guest list, relaxation… These are typically the main reasons some people would prefer destination wedding. But then, we also hear the worries: Will a foreign wedding planner understand what I want? Will I be too jet-lagged to enjoy my own wedding? Will my nearest and dearest be able to afford to attend? A new trend towards US-based destination weddings may combine the best of both worlds. Following are a few of the most popular warm weather locations perfect for a destination wedding.


The Keys:From classic to funky, the Keys can offer any feel you want for your wedding.

Southwest Florida Islands:If you like white-sand beaches, then consider Sanibel Island or Captiva Island.

The Panhandle: Looking for a hip location? Check out Florida's Panhandle. With sites like Panama City Beach, it's a perfect fit.

The Carolinas

North Carolina:If you're dreaming of a seaside wedding, consider North Carolina. From Wilmington to the Outer Banks the possibilities are endless.
