destination wedding locations
that don't require a passport

Contrary to popular belief... Europe and the Caribbean islands don't have a lock on delivering a culture-drenched experience for a destination wedding. There are plenty of U.S. locales that can deliver this, but you don't need a passport to get there.....

Our Top 5 Favorite Spots ...


1. SCOTTSDALE, AZ



From it's rugged terrain to it's ritzy resorts and championship golf courses ... this Southwestern Mecca offers something for everyone. We suggest incorporating the allure of the Sonoran desert in your reception decor (think succulents and warm colors). Embrace the heat with creative & fun touches to keep your guests cool such as personalized fans, signature cocktails, etc.

2. NEW ORLEANS, LA



Where else can you have a live brass band lead the procession from your ceremony to your reception site? Life in "The Big Easy" revolves around music, delectable cuisine and a spirited atmosphere, giving you all the ingredients for an unforgettable party! We recommend steering clear of popular events such as Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest to avoid high hotel rates and limited availability of top musicians, caterers, etc.

3. PALM SPRINGS, CA



The perfect mishmash of purple hued mountains, sparkling pools and modern design; this palm-studded oasis is a pretty marvelous wedding destination. Couples can even wed in unique locales such as Frank Sinatra's abode, Twin Pals, known for its piano-shaped pool.

4. FLORIDA



Easy to get to, tropical & relaxed, the Sunshine State is a little slice of paradise. What we love about this destination is the diversity of wedding venues & properties throughout the state. From sprawling beach resorts to intimate inns & historic hotels, there is something for everyone. A few of our favorites? Key West, Amelia Island & Miami Beach ...

5. MAUI, HI



The waterfalls, the beaches, the Aloha Spirit... It's hard to go wrong with a wedding here. Romance exudes at every corner and the island offers an array of dreamy places to say "I do". To really embrace the magic of the island, we suggest a sunset ceremony on the beach...

  2. These are breath-taking destination wedding venues! Thanks for sharing the list. But dear I really can’t afford destination wedding so it would be great if you could suggest such beautiful local Chicago event space for me!
