The 15 Best Wedding Destinations in the US

Hawaii is a lush tropical paradise in our own backyard, and it's the number one wedding destination in the US. The main islands to visit are Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii and Molokai, each with its own appeal and personality. Oahu is the most populated island and has that “city” feel as you relax on the beach. Kauai is for outdoor adventurers with tons of hiking and biking in the lush rainforest.

Maui is a great combination of both with the rainforest, but there are some big cities with a lot to do. Hawaii, also known as the Big Island, has many world-class resorts and golf courses. Molokai is the least marketed island, so if you're looking for pristine beaches, this is your island. No matter which island you choose, if you're looking for a tropical beach wedding without the hassle of a passport, you can't go wrong with any island in Hawaii. Florida is an excellent destination for weddings due to a number of possibilities.

You can marry crystal blue waters as a backdrop in the Florida Keys or in one of the most popular cities in the world, Miami. There's also Disney World, where you can have a wedding in the shape of a princess. Whether you're looking for a beautiful snow wedding or a rustic mountain wedding with the forest as a backdrop, Colorado is the place for you. If you get married in the winter, there are many ski resorts that can organize your event and, at the same time, allow your guests to spend a fun weekend of skiing or snowboarding. If you get married in spring or summer, you'll have beautiful flower fields and lush green forests that are perfect for the new “forests” themed wedding. Sailing is a great way to see many areas at once without having to unpack.

If you're traveling back and forth to an American city, you don't need a passport (although it's always recommended to leave the country), but there are also great cruises based in the US. You can take a cruise along the California coast or a fall foliage cruise along the east coast of the US and Canada, a Hawaii cruise where you can see all the islands, or the most popular cruise ship in the US., a cruise to Alaska. If you've dreamed of a destination wedding in Hawaii, but sandy beaches aren't exactly your thing, you have to visit Haiku Mill. A former sugar plantation full of old-world elegance, this wedding venue features ornate and carefully selected treasures from around the world and is surrounded by fragrant jasmine and gardenia flowers. The patio opens to the beautiful Hawaiian sky that reminds everyone of the beauty of the island.
