When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most important decisions you have to make is where you are going to have the ceremony. You can choose to have the ceremony in a religious setting. You can have it done at the courthouse. You can even get married on the beach. But none of these have to take place in your city or even in your own state, as you also have the option to have a dream destination wedding at the location of your choice. And while this may limit the amount of friends or family members that can go, this option does have a number of benefits. First of all, hosting your wedding at a beautiful and exotic location ensures that it will be an unforgettable event. Second of all, if you are already in the place of your dreams, you can simply decide to have your honeymoon right there, and you can even have everyone that came to your wedding be an integral part of the celebration. So if you are thinking that a destination wedding is right for you, but just aren’t sure where you should host yours, consider this list for some of the best destination wedding settings the world has to offer.

  2. Fiji: A peaceful, relaxing, exotic, remote and absolutely stunning collection of islands, Fiji provides a wide variety of beautiful beaches on which you can tie the knot.
