What makes a wedding perfect? Is it the wedding dress, the music, the food or something else? We say that, although all of these things have their part in the ceremony success, it is the venue that can elevate even a simple ceremony all the way to the stars. We cannot possibly imagine a better wedding location than a beach – it makes everything more romantic and photo-worthy. Because of that reason, many couples today decide to exchange their vows in stunning beach locations around the world. If you are planning your wedding under the clear skies and with the blue ocean in the background, here are the best of the best beaches for saying “I do”.
Guana Island, British Virgin Islands
Let us start small. This is the perfect wedding location for the couples who want to keep things at a minimum, and by ‘things’ we mean ‘guests’. An intimate ceremony at the Guana Island allows no more than 36 guests. This Caribbean gem is a true getaway with unique fauna and flora, white-sand beaches and by the ocean accommodations. A wide selection of activities (sailing, snorkeling, hiking, tennis, etc.) will make your honeymoon unforgettable.
