4. Key West/ Miami, FloridaBeach Weddings - Florida

For the super chic couple that still wants a beach wedding, Miami is your town. You have the cityscape behind you and the sea in front, plus all the nightlife that Miami is known for.

5. Bahamas Beach Weddings - Bahamas

The Bahamas is another one of the Caribbean’s gems. Beautiful crystal clear waters and white sand beaches make the Bahamas an in-demand location for destination weddings.

6. Cabo san Lucas, MexicoBeach Weddings - Cabo

The second most in-demand location in Mexico would be Cabo. The rocky coastline makes for a stunning backdrop for your photos. On the Pacific side of Mexico, you have a completely different feel than the Caribbean side. You’ll have a more mountainous, desert plant and palm tree look instead of the lush jungle landscape of the East. Because you are in the West, you will also have less humidity which will help your hair and makeup stay in place, can I get an Amen?

A 1000 miles north of Cabo is beautiful San Diego, which is right across the Mexico border.

There is also a ton to do for your guests of all ages with a world-famous zoo or the equally as famous Gas Lamp district for great nightlife.
