My FI and I are looking to get married in a romantic and beautiful place. We’ve ruled out a church since we’re of different religions and a banquet hall doesn’t seem to be the ideal background. So we’ve also thought about a Disney destination wedding, and found a relatively affordable package option. Just wondering if you lovely brides can think of any other awesome destinations right here in the U.S. great for a destination wedding!

We’re only about two hours away but we’re getting married in Charleston. It has TONS of options that are beautiful and romantic. We picked a gazebo in a park for the ceremony and a restaurant for the reception.

New England had some awesome places depending on the time of year. Cape Cod, Martha’s vineyard, and Nantuck are all great choices. I got engaged on the Cape and consider a second home as my mother was born there and that’s where my parents met.

We’re getting married in the Carmel/Monterey area in California. There’s a lot of great areas of California that would be a ton of fun to travel to – Carmel, Santa Barbara, Napa & Sonoma, etc. We also looked at New England – either a B&B type place we could have to ourselves or an off-season ski lodge (though there’s a lot of larger hotels that do package deals as well) and at the Florida Keys. Savannah, GA would also be gorgeous, I think.

We got married in Savannah GA at The Gastonian, which is a B&B. We absolutely loved it.

I second Charleston!! SOOO many options…and it is pretty rare to get married in a banquet hall around here! too many historical houses, parks and of course the beach to get married at! The plantations are stunning to get married at also.

I third the Charleston recommendation! It is romantic, beautiful, and there are so many unique venues. I love it there.

We’re getting married outside near the harbor in mid-coast Maine.
The leaves will JUST be changing and it is a beautiful New England destination.

I’m having mine in Savannah, GA. I’ve never lived there, neither has my family or his. We just really love the feel of the town…so in my mind its a destination wedding because everyone has to travel!
My BFF is having hers in Asheville, NC.
