Tropical Destination Wedding Locations That Are Still a Secret
Have you always dreamed of tying the knot with your toes in the sand and the roar of the surf behind you? These incredible tropical sites are off the beaten path, so you won’t be fighting for beach space as you would at more popular destinations.
The Outer Islands of the Bahamas
When most people plan a destination wedding in the Bahamas, they focus on sites like Nassau or Grand Bahama Island. While these are both beautiful locations, your wedding budget will go much further if you choose to host your guests in one of the country’s outer islands instead. Eleuthera, Andros, and Exuma are less populated and less touristy, so you will have the beaches all to yourself and your wedding party.
Instead of spending your life savings on a wedding in the French Polynesia, head to the much more cost effective Philippines for your destination wedding. With the same gorgeous blue water and a similar laidback culture as Bali, you’ll get all of the impact of a more expensive location.
Located halfway between Key Largo and Key West, Islamorada is a quiet, romantic location for a Florida Keys wedding you’ll remember forever. Whether you choose a dock wedding on the Atlantic side or a beach wedding near the Gulf of Mexico, Islamorada is an excellent place to tie the knot. You’re close to the bars, restaurants, and shops of Key West, while still remaining in a largely residential area.
Escape the hustle and bustle of other parts of the Mexican Riviera (such as Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta) and head to Mazatlan for a picture perfect destination wedding. With an average temperature of 77, you’ll find enviable weather year-round.
Ambergris Cay, Belize
The largest of Belize’s islands, Ambergris Cay is a gorgeous escape from your everyday life. It’s an ideal alternative to more popular areas in Central America such as Costa Rica. Have your intimate wedding ceremony on the white sand beaches, then spend your honeymoon exploring the incredible dive sites along Belize’s coast.
