Do Tell: Where Would You Hold a Destination Wedding?

I'm heading to Paris later this year to be a bridesmaid in my good friend's wedding. Anywhere they chose was bound to be a faraway destination for many guests, considering she's from Chicago, her fiancé is from Australia, and they live together in England. They chose Paris for the wedding, since they got engaged there, and well, it's très romantique!

While a destination wedding can be inconvenient for guests, and extra planning for the bride and groom, it's also a great way to mix your wedding celebration with travel. Since it's hard to get hundreds of people to attend, a destination wedding can also be more intimate than traditional hometown weddings.

If you were going to organize a destination wedding, where would it be?

How romantic and I just went to Paris last June. Plus I plan on going back. I think that I would like to be married there or in Italy. I wish your friend a lot of luck and one day I will be getting married as well.

Italy would be the dream destination. If I had the money I would love to get married in one of the amazing Roman churches, but to get a little less expensive Venice is a close second.. and you can hold a very romantic honeymoon there afterwards.

I just had a destination wedding myself- 2.5 weeks ago. We got married in Nassau, Bahamas.

Definitely Fiji. That is my vision of the perfect romantic yet lively location. It just seems like a place that brings happiness.

My fiancee is from Jamaica and he still has plenty of family there so we will be getting married there. I decided to go super touristy on it because my man has never experienced his homeland from a tourist point of view so we will be staying in an all-inclusive, in the middle of Montego Bay and we will check out all of the most famous tourist traps. It shall be incredible.

Jamaica, because most of my family is there and I would want to share that day with them.

We got married in the Bahamas. It was beautiful, and great pictures to prove it. We couldn't afford a great wedding and honeymoon, so we figured this was the best choice. My parents and an aunt joined us, then we had the reception at home.

ilanac-I would LOVE to get married in the Grenadines. Most perfect place to get married ever. Secluded, not cliche, and gorgeous. Or I'd love to get married in Norway, by a fjord. I think proposing/getting married in Paris is a bit of a cliche (although I live in England and everybody seems get proposed to there (I went to Paris for the day recently), perhaps for US people it doesn't happen as often...)

I married in Amsterdam, Netherlands which was very beautiful and romantic. My husband is Dutch and was living there his whole life, so we had our wedding there. It became a destination wedding for my family and friends. We married in a windmill in the northern section of the city and from there our guest boarded a large canal boat that a captain steered through the city for a time. All around us people waved from the bridges and streets. We had dancing, drinks, food and two singers on board who really got the party going. Later on we stopped at a certain spot and walked to The Waag. An old fortress turned restaurant where we had the formal dinner. It was magical. Our motto was Live Your Dreams, and we did that day.

I'm already married, but I still fantasize about a wedding in a vineyard in France, or a cathedral in Italy. Oh, to dream. lol

I got married in Jamica. It was my storybook wedding, I was just reading a different book than the one the wedding industry wanted to sell me. The main issue for us was cutting out the crazy wedding nonsense. The ceremony was for us and we had a small reception when we got back. We've been married 13 years--I feel old saying that!

This may sound kind of nerdy, but one afternoon when my boyfriend and I were watching The Lord of the Rings:The Two Towers we were watching the scene where the members of the fellowship were in a "kingdom" that was set on hills and surrounded by flatland. We were amazed by how beautiful it looked and remembered that they shot all three movies in New Zealand. So wherever they shot that scene with the poisoned king was is where we would like to get married.

I would want to get married in Dubrovnik, there is a small island near the town that has an old monastery and garden, that would be awesome. My boyfriend is Croatian, and it would be awesome for my family to see that beautiful place and it would be easy for his other relatives to get there from other parts of Europe. Its really a magical place.....

My aunt got married in Marbella, Spain. It was so beautiful! I'd probably choose south of France or Florence.

we just had ours on a TINY island in St Vincent and the Grenadines called Canouan Island. it was beautiful and private and so amazing. the best thing is that there's only the resort and a small village on the island so it's not like there's anything else to get in the way of the wedding

We are planning to go to Sonoma or Napa. We want something very small and intimate. We haven't decided if we are inviting people or not. I would like it to be just us.

I think the point (for me, anyway) of a destination wedding is avoiding all of the wedding party hooplah (I would NOT be able to pick just a few bridesmaids) and only having VIPs in attendance. It's almost cheaper that way.

New Orleans would be a great wedding destination as long as you're not doing it in the summer. It's just soooo humid and it would suck. October would be the ideal time of year for an outdoor wedding there. I'm already married, but a destination wedding at Lake Constance in Germany/Austria/Switzerland or Lake Como would be nice.
