There’s a lot of appeal when it comes to exchanging your wedding vows in an exciting locale away from home – the journey, the adventure, the romantic mystique! It kicks the excitement and magic of a wedding up that extra notch.
To help you get hitched abroad, Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, has found the most romantic spots to say “I do”. From major cities, to rustic towns, here are the top six destinations to become Mr. and Mrs.
Ravello, a resort town perched above the Tyrrhenian Sea, has enchanted travellers for centuries. With breath-taking views of the iconic Amalfi Coast and lush cliffside gardens, Ravello is a perfect location for a romantic destination wedding. The glossy town is renowned for its ethereal atmosphere, particularly at night when the vistas light up the mountainous landscape.
Book yourselves into La Dolce Vita Ravello for a true ‘room with a view’ experience. The property includes colourful, modern studios and apartments with private terraces or patios overlooking panoramic views of the Amalfi coast.
Las Vegas, USA
The neon lights of mega-resorts, swanky casinos and desire-filling factories might look like a desert mirage as your plane descends into Sin City – but believe it or not, what many call The Entertainment Capital of the World is as real as the money you can win at the blackjack tables. Whether wanting a big, traditional ceremony or a small, intimate affair, Las Vegas offer brides and grooms many options all with the backdrop of one of the most stimulating cities in the world.
The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, a Forbes triple five-star luxury hotel in the center of the Vegas strip, boasts views of either the strip or the city from each room. Wedding parties can enjoy in the sleek hotel’s style and extravagance without the hectic vibe of a casino onsite. Treat your bridal or groomsman party to a pampering pre or post-wedding at the two-floor 1930s Shanghai-themed spa.
On a sunny day, the waters of Sydney Harbour glisten like shards of sapphire, reflecting a certain iconic Opera House that needs no introduction. But the city’s heart and soul lie in the warmth and charm of its communities. Whether your wedding dreams consist of a laid-back beach ceremony or a reception amongst the cosmopolitan backdrop of the city centre, Sydney can make all your wedding dreams come true.
Adina Apartment Hotel is surrounded by the popular neighbourhood of Bondi’s numerous restaurants, cafes and bars and is a five-minute walk from Bondi Beach. Comprised of studios, one, two, and three bedroom apartments, all of which have a balcony, the hotel is a prime place to park your wedding crew for the trip.
Paris, a magnet for lovers and their beloved; a sleepless and urbane capital fuelled by champagne and dreams; and an unwavering lodestone for the world’s art and culture connoisseurs. Known worldwide as ‘The City of Love’, what better place to say “I do”?
Classic yet modern hotel Le Burgundy is just a hop and a skip from premier shopping district Rue Saint-Honoré and less than a ten-minute drive to The Champs-Elysées. Host your rehearsal dinner in au courant French cuisine style at the hotel’s Michelin Star restaurant, Le Baudelaire.
London’s unique allure is impossible to define. From the dizzying wealth of Belgravia to the urban markets of Camden Town, every neighbourhood has its own unique character. You may not be able to have the formal pomp and circumstance like Prince William and Duchess Kate’s wedding, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a wedding that’s fit for a royal in London!
Posh West end neighbourhood Mayfair is home to Marriott 47 Park Street, a hotel made up of opulent Edwardian suites decorated with fine art and crystal lighting. The property houses a Michelin two-starred restaurant and is less than a five-minute walk from Kensington Palace-adjacent Hyde Park – the perfect space for a wedding party photoshoot.
Mexico City, Mexico
Urban metropolis alongside rich aztec history speak to Mexico City’s colourful appeal and eclectic landscape. The capital’s culinary scene is off the charts and the city’s ancient ruins, plazas, stunning murals, classic cantinas, art galleries, and more, leave visitors at no shortage of cultural offerings. Mexico City’s tourism is rapidly on the rise, so now would be a good time for soon-to-be-spouses to claim their wedding spot in the culturally stacked capital city.
If affordable luxury sounds appealing, Casa Corp Boutique Suite in Condesa has got your wedding party covered. Near shopping, entertainment, historic sites, and more, this property is rated as one of the best values you’ll find in Mexico City. Each piece of furniture in the elegantly decorated suites has been hand-picked by the architect and art gallery owner.
