@LBercyn:  Does Hawaii count as the US in your mind? 🙂 That would be AMAZING! Otherwise, what about Napa Valley, CA or something in Florida?  I’m thinking warm places – is that what you have in mind?

@LBercyn:  I was planning a July wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming!  July would be lovely for an outdoor wedding.  80s by day, cool by night.  Least chance of snow.  Jackson is the ultimate vacation spot – for outdoorsy and nonoutdoorsy people!  Plus direct flights from ORD-JAC.  I have tons of research on venues of all prices.

@LBercyn:  Yay for Destination Weddings =) What is your general vision for your wedding? Location, weather, accessibility, etc?

@MrsTillerResq:  LOL!

I had a nearly paid for/completely planned wedding set for Jackson Hole!  I could seriously help a bride out!

Anything South of South Carolina will be God awful hot in July, especially Florida and Georgia.

I second HI. We had a friend who had a Destination Wedding in Maui in August and it was gorgeous. She even had a rainbow.

@beachbride1216:  —> THIS… when she said

As a travel nuts… Mr TTR and I stay above the Carolinas in July & August (and I wouldn’t head to the Caribbean then either, which is even CLOSER to the Equator)

New England is awesome then…

Maine (coastline) – New Hampshire (seaside – lake district – white mountains) – Vermont (Green Mountains – Lake Champlain) – New York (Finger Lakes – The Adirondacks – The Catskills) – Massachusetts (Cape Cod) – Rhode Island (coastline).

You can use GOOGLE (or Wikipedia) to get some general overview ideas… TripAdvisor is also a good source of info, as is the various Official Tourism Websites… each State / Region / and City typically having one.

Also I agree 100% with sienna76: the mid-west and The Rockies would be another awesome area… the scenery magnificent.

Lol, mind you she herself got married in Canada (our Rockies)… and I think one would have to be pretty lucky to get better pics than those she shared recently here on WBee

@LBercyn:  My husband and I had a Destination Wedding in Asheville, NC…..but by July it might be too warm if you want everything outside.  If you are thinking of an entirely indoor ceremony with reception or an outdoor ceremony with indoor reception the Blue Ridge Mountains (Asheville) are beautiful!  We also considered the NC Outer Banks.

Other options would be vineyards in Northern California or Oregon. Charleston SC is a fun city to visit, Colonial Williamsburg VA, or I agree totally with @sienna76:  Jackson Hole Wyoming (or even Yellowstone) would be amazing! Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, Sedona AZ, New Orleans or Lake Tahoe.  There are tons of options, it just depends on what type of  Destination Wedding you want to have! 🙂
