It’s summer, and that means it’s wedding season. As people spend increasingly more money on that one day, many couples are turning to far-flung locations to create a unique experience. And, in many cases, a destination wedding can even get you more bang for your buck. If you’ve dreamed of tying the knot in a unique spot, check out some of these most-searched wedding destinations on Yahoo:
A wedding in Hawaii can be a simple hotel beach wedding on Oahu or a rainforest tropical locale on Maui. Just outside Waikiki, which is easy to get to and the most crowded beach on the islands, is Diamond Head. On the opposite side of the island are large pristine beaches at Kewala Bay and Waimanalo Beach. Turtle Bay Resort is the major hotel on the north shore of Oahu. While Kauai and Maui are the most popular of the less-populated islands, you can create a more remote experience on Lanai, Molokai, or the Big Island. Use My Hawaii Wedding or Weddings of Hawaii to customize your experience or create original packages with everything from lava rocks to whale-spotting.

If you want a picture-perfect beach wedding on a Caribbean island that’s easy to get to, then the Bahamas are the perfect setting. Made up of more than 700 islands and islets, which extend from southeast of Florida to the eastern tip of Cuba, the Bahamas has enough white sand and turquoise beaches for more weddings than you’ll have in your lifetimes. The Exumas, an area of over 300 islands or cays known for its clear blue water, and The Abacos, the island chain in the northern Bahamas, are off-the-beaten-path, picturesque wedding locations. Grand Bahama Island, Nassau, and Paradise Island are more common and easier destinations to reach. Hire a company like Weddings in the Bahamas to find low-cost and exotic wedding packages for your special tropical ceremony. Most hotels and resorts also offer wedding packages, including The Atlantis and Pelican Bay Hotel. Sandals even has an all-inclusive wedding plan; let your wedding party enjoy all they can drink while toasting the newlyweds.
