3 Top Beach Wedding Destinations in the US

Looking forward to doing a beach wedding in the USA with great ocean views? Well, the country offers several options for couples who want to get married in the USA. 

To help with this choice, some wedding planners of Belief Wedding Creators selected the best locations for your beach wedding in the USA. 

Here they are: 

Florida

Aviva Samuels, wedding planner from Kiss the Planner, suggests that Florida is a good place for destination weddings. “The warm weather and the spectacular beaches are the main reasons couples choose to get married in Florida. We have many luxury hotels and historic locations for couples to choose from. We have coastal cities and towns and other inland towns that have the countryside vibe”, explains Aviva.

For couples who like the idea of getting married in Florida, Aviva suggests some wonderful historical venues such as the Breakers Palm Beach, The Biltmore Hotel, The Boca Resort & Club, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and Maralago (President Trump’s home).

How do you entertain your wedding guests? Well, there are plenty of options; according to Aviva, Florida has something for everyone, especially those who love the water. “Snorkeling, diving, deep sea fishing, windsurfing and catamaran sailing are all very popular, but for those who want to relax on the beaches, dine in casual or fine restaurants, dance until dawn or take in the local history, there is plenty to do”, ads Aviva.

We can not talk about Florida without mentioning Disney World and the famous South Beach, where you can see celebrities out and about. “There are several major cities and coastlines to choose from. You can find big city life and small quaint towns, and no matter where you are, you are never too far from the beach”, says Aviva.

If you and your guests are foodies, you’ll be delighted with American comfort food, including burgers and fries, pizza and ice cream. Aviva also says that at weddings, it is common to have stations where guests can choose different ethnic foods from other counties, or, more American fare such as chicken and waffles, mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese with a choice of toppings.

New Port Rhode Island

Newport is a seaside city on Aquidneck Island in Newport County, Rhode Island, located 180 miles northeast of New York City. According to  JoAnn Gregoli, wedding planner from Elegant Occasions by JoAnn Gregoli, it is amazing for US destination weddings, especially for the classic couples.

“It offers guests a variety of things to do from sailing, lobster bakes to tours of historic mansions”, says JoAnn. If you choose to get married in Newport, guests might find it interesting to join tours to mansions, go on cliff walk, boating and sailing, according to JoAnn.

When it comes to typical food,  JoAnn says that Lobster Bakes are really special - don’t forget to add it to your bucket list!

Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the northeast Caribbean Sea, approximately 1,000 miles  southeast of Miami, Florida, and also a wonderful wedding destination.

According to Hayxanair Hernández, wedding planner from Naya's Idea Event Coordinator,  in Puerto Rico you can find everything in one place. “You will have memorable vacations in Puerto Rico, explore destination weddings in any of its luxury venues, get the ocean view, find Haciendas surrounded by forests and a enjoy a unique gastronomy experience”, says Hayxanair.

If you are thinking about incorporating some typical food in your wedding menu, you might wish to try the Alcapurrias (fritter dish), Bacalaitos (seafood appetizer), Mofongo (a Puerto Rican dish with fried Plantains as its main ingredient), Arroz Con Gandules (rice dish cooked with meat, pigeon peas and some olives), Coquito (creamy coconut and rum drink) and flan. 

Want to entertain your wedding guests more? Hayxanair says that Puerto Rico has bioluminescent bays, zip lines, catamarans, boat tours and many other activities that you wedding guests could enjoy.
