What is a Destination Wedding?
A destination wedding is known by many things: location wedding, eloping, elopement wedding, and weddingmoon (get it, wedding plus honeymoon all at once?) You can really make a destination wedding anything you want, from a simple eloping ceremony between the two of you, to a small ceremony in a romantic destination with family and a few friends, to a more elaborate, large destination wedding with extended family and many friends.
Where are the best places to get married?
Again, that's the beauty of eloping or having a destination wedding - it's what suits you. You might be the type who love beach weddings, or Fall weddings in New England, or weddings on the top of a ski slope in Colorado.
