Top 5 U.S. Resort Destinations for Your Wedding

Here are five, though not all, of our favorite U.S. destinations for weddings. We have chosen these based upon the natural beauty of the location, the ease of planning and how receptive the communities have been to men getting married.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

The oldest capital in the U.S. is quickly becoming one of the most popular wedding destinations in the country. This “city of enchantment” delivers on all fronts. Santa Fe has the most distinctive architecture of any city in America while showcasing a thriving art scene and being the epicenter of southwestern and continental cuisine. It is a rare combination of beauty and culture that gives the city an international feel at a particularly good value for the money.

Saint Helena, California

The quintessential wine-country experience, Saint Helena provides breathtaking vineyards, a world-class culinary scene and award-winning hotels. Wedding and reception venues range from wineries to boutique hotels to estate houses, and your guests will enjoy a surreal countryside with all of the refined comforts of wine-country living. Where else can you and your guests emerge from a therapeutic mud bath only to find themselves barefoot in a barrel of grapes?

Provincetown, Massachusetts

This town has a long-time reputation for being a gay mecca. A beautiful waterfront community on Cape Cod that is both charming and convenient. There are countless wedding options in this walkable and welcoming seaside village. The community is sure to impress, particularly during the shoulder seasons when the crowds of tourists are not as large. P-town features some of the best entertainment and shopping anywhere, and you’re going to love the countless guest-houses and restaurants.

Aspen, Colorado

Rocky mountain high? In Aspen, it is Rocky Mountain highest. Breathtaking mountains, internationally-renowned restaurants, 5-star shopping and 6-star hotels are all wrapped-up in the appeal of this storybook Victorian town.   Aspen is the epitome of alpine luxury. The combination of easy access to the great outdoors and casual luxury all equate to an unforgettable event that both you and your guests will relish for years to come. After all, this is as close to heaven as some people may ever get.

Laguna Beach, California

If beach blanket Babylon is what you’re after, there’s no better destination than this quintessential Southern Californian gem. Can you picture yourselves arriving on surfboard to greet your tribe on the beach for the ceremony? There’s no better time to sport a “Georgehamiltan” framed in more white linen than the pool at the Delano. Chic and casual are the name of the game and your guest will surely love every minute of sun-quenched SoCal.
