List Rules Vote up the top places for beach destination weddings

List of the top destinations for a beach wedding. What are the best places for a beach wedding? This list ranks the most popular places to have a beach wedding. From California to Florida, Thailand and Mexico, beach weddings are an unforgettable alternative to traditional weddings. Skip the heels and tuxedos for flip flops, sand and sun and use this list as a guide to the best beach wedding destinations in the world.

While many people believe destination weddings are expensive, a beach wedding can be a more affordable option than a traditional wedding. A beach wedding offers a great solution for couples who want to have an intimate wedding that's both elegant and easy yet fun for everyone. The most important part of planning a beach wedding is choosing a location that fits the bill. Unlike traditional wedding venues that cost a fortune to rent out for an evening, most beaches do not require special permits for smaller informal weddings.

Beach weddings are also a popular option because the ceremony location can easily be transformed into a reception venue with amazing scenery of sand and surf and a spectacular sunset to look forward to at the end of the evening. Some couples even choose to spend their honeymoon at a nearby resort and plan excursions for their guests during their stay.
