As destination weddings become increasingly popular, people are getting more and more creative about what their big day should look like. Destination Weddings are no longer strictly synonymous with being a low-key way to escape a big to-do at home if you will. Instead, the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can plan for a Destination Wedding. Whether you’re looking for something laidback and intimate, or lavish and opulent, there are an increasing amount of options out there to fit any couple’s needs. A current favourite of ours though are villa weddings!
When you rent out a private villa, you get the perks of staying with just your guests, in your own space, and also have a special spot to have the wedding ceremony and reception. Plus, the added bonus of full privacy! You can make a week-long festivity out of the wedding, with pre- and post-celebrations. Not to mention the fact that your wedding photos will be STUNNING – these private resorts and villas have gone all out on making sure every spot on the property is stunning, with 360 degree views, lush greenery, pristine beaches, and beautiful amenities. It’s every Instagram-lovers dream. If that doesn’t convince you just check out these photos of some of our favourite villas, most of which feature private pools, butler service, personal chefs, and housekeepers – everything to make your destination wedding the most glamorous and decadent trip of your life!
Villa Manzu in Guanacaste, Costa Rica
If you’re travelling with a larger group and are looking for the villa experience without sacrificing the convenience and amenities of a resort, many properties are starting to build luxury villas onsite to offer guests the best of both worlds! This means that you’ll have access to all of the restaurants and services of the resort, while still having a private retreat to call your own. You also won’t have to worry about limiting your guest list, as anyone who isn’t staying at the villa can stay at the affiliated hotel. These are some of our favourite hotel villas for you to explore!
