You’re in for a treat regardless of which coastline you choose to say “I do” on in Mexico. Think toasting with tequila, walking down the aisle to a live Mariachi band, and smashing a piñata at the wedding breakfast. The Caribbean Coast offers up big names like Cancun and the glamorous Riviera Maya, where luxury five-star hotels are the norm, and there are swathes of sandy beach available for tying the knot. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore Mayan ruins Tulum and Chichen Itza after the big event is over. Meanwhile over on the Pacific Coast, get married with the Sierra Madre Mountains as your backdrop, and spend your first few days as a married couple exploring rainforests and snorkelling in coral reefs.
If you’d rather celebrate a little closer to home, Greece offers up a platter of perfect spots for your big day. Santorini is a favourite amongst honeymooners, with sweeping views of the Aegean Sea and winding walkways lined with whitewashed walls. Rhodes tops the chart of sunshine hours across the islands and is home to a World Heritage Site, while Skiathos and Halkidiki show off Greece at its most authentic, with old villages, crumbling ruins, and olives groves stretching for miles. And, if you fancy finishing things off with a big party, head to Kos to celebrate in style.
Why waste your time trudging around wedding venues with your other half when you can get married with your toes tucked into the sand on a Caribbean beach? Jamaica has plenty to offer couples looking for a showstopper, from saying “I do” on horseback, to climbing the Dunn’s River Falls. Wedding breakfasts include Jamaican steak and salt fish filos, and locals have their own version of wedding cake to tuck into made with fruit and local rum. Why not make it a tradition and have it on your anniversary every year?
To really turn up the romance, get married in Cyprus – the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Think sunset walks by the marina in Paphos and picnics on the beach under the stars. And, there are plenty of swoony-worthy ceremony spots to choose from, like local chapels and flower-fringed hotel gardens, overlooking the sea. When the marriage certificate’s been signed, head to Ayia Napa for the club scene, and out into the countryside to see sleepy villages and spot historical sights.
When it comes to fairytale weddings, the Dominican Republic really delivers on dreamy locations to tie the knot. Walking down the aisle on palm-lined beaches, accompanied by the sound of the waves is the norm here, as are lavish receptions in luxury hotels. And for your honeymoon? Spot exotic wildlife in the jungle, head out on a whale watching excursion, and visit Santo Domingo to experience the Dominican Republic’s colonial charm.
