Three Wedding Destination Spots For Couples Looking For An Ocean View

Posted on

Many couples dream of having a wedding at a fancy hotel overlooking the water. The setting will be super romantic, and a great destination wedding spot if your looking to tie in your wedding to a mini vacation. While there are plenty of beautiful oceanfront cities, some of them are better for weddings. Some areas that have amazing ocean views are a bit too desolate, and more suited for adventure expeditions. The destinations listed below are all better suited for wedding destinations. You will find amazing resort quality hotels at each of these destinations. Here's a quick overview of the group.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

If you're looking for a Caribbean vacation, and plan on inviting friends and family, then Punta Cana is a great choice. It's a super popular vacation spot and is very affordable, so it won't break the bank as much as a trip to St. Maarten or some other more exclusive spot. Punta Cana has lots of amazing hotels that are located right on the beach and you can have your wedding reception either on a private spot on the hotel grounds, or else right out on the beach. And if you're looking for great music, then Punta Cana can't be beat, especially if you and your betrothed are into Latin music.

Malibu, Califorina

If you're out in the west coast, then consider Malibu. It's one of the most popular spots in California for wedding receptions. There are some really high end hotels that are perfect if you're looking for a luxury wedding reception. You have two basic choices. The first are the hotels that are located up on the cliffs, so that you and your guests are overlooking the ocean from a high vantage point. It provides a really sweeping vista. And then there are the hotels that are located down near the beach for people who want a wedding right on the sand. Some of the hotels have private access beach permits that are perfect if you don't want to deal with a big crowded beach.

Southampton, Long Island

Southampton has a similar vibe to Malibu. It's ritzy, exclusive, with beautiful scenery. It's close enough to NYC so that it is a perfect destination for anyone who lives in the New Jersey/New York region. The cool thing about a Southampton is that you can find a boutique hotel right on the beach, and have your wedding vows take place right on the sand, with the waves crashing in the background. Southampton is much more chill than other Long Island spots, so you won't be swamped with summer beach goers. In fact, many of the boutique hotels have their own private beach access which will mean a really peaceful and calm ceremony. 

Georgios Banquets, Quality Inn & Suites Conference Centre offers a wonderful example of the type of services you could get.
