    July 25, 2012

    It's summer which means it's time for beach weddings! A ceremony on a white sand beach with crystal clear water water, a nice sea breeze, and endless sunshine...what more could a bride ask for on her special day? And let's be honest, guests are never disappointed with the outdoor ceremony and background music of lapping waves. So where are the best places in the world for a beach wedding? Eventup has your top 10 beaches for when you decide to say "I Do" barefoot in the sand.

    #10 Coronado Beach, California
    Not planning a destination wedding but want a ceremony on the beach?  Plan your wedding in San Diego (more specifically, we recommend Coronado Beach)! Your guests will enjoy the close proximity and you will love not dropping serious cash on plane tickets and accommodations.  And you definitely won't be cutting yourself short by saving some green...just look at that sunset!

     

    #9 St. Pete Beach, Florida

    Another possible option if you're not going abroad is a wedding in Florida. The sunshine state has many beautiful beaches to choose from, but recommend St. Pete Beach for it's white sand, crystal clear water and some additional wedding guests....dolphins!

     

     

    #8 Boca Paila, Mexico

    The ancient escape is the perfect destination for you romantic adventure.  A ceremony on the Yucatan beach would be just in site of ancient ruins, making your ceremony especially unique.  The white sand beach and beautiful water aren't bad either.

     

     

    #7 Lanikai Beach, Hawaii


    This half mile beauty is located on the eastern coast of the Hawaiian Island of Oahu.  Unlike many of the beaches in Hawaii, Lanakai is very private and is rarely crowded at any point in time during the week.  It is the perfect place for a quiet ceremony without being too inaccessible.

     

     

    #6 Maya Bay, Phi Phi, Thailand


    This beautiful bay is sheltered by giant cliffs on three sides.  Essentially the bay is a giant reef with crystal clear water and several beaches throughout and tropical fish visible from the shore.  Even better, the tropical paradise was once a filming location for Leonardo DiCarprio's 2000 film The Beach.

     

     

    #5 Seychelles

    Look familiar? The beach looks like a postcard because, well, it's been on postcards! Seychelles is the most photographed beach in the world which is why it's the perfect backdrop for your wedding album!

     

     

    #4 Maldives

    Only nature could have created something so surreal. The Maldives' incredible beauty and secluded location is the perfect romantic getaway for your ceremony...it wouldn't make a bad honeymoon either!

     

     

    #3 White Haven, Haymen Islands, Australia


    The ultra private beach Down Under is the ultimate white sand experience. You and your guests need either a helicopter or a boat to access White Haven, but the short guest list will allow for a more intimate experience!

     

    #2 Grace Bay Beach, Providenciales


    Consider this turquoise paradise the hidden gem of the British West Indies, although it's not so hidden anymore! That's because the beach was nominated as the Best Beach destination by TripAdvisor in 2011, and it almost made the top of our list as well.

     

     

    #1 Bora Bora, Tahiti

    Just a one hour flight away from Tahiti resides what many describe as the most romantic island in the world. It is no wonder the tiny islands have been the shooting location for dating shows like The Bachelorette. Live out your romantic fantasies surrounded by emerald water and white sand beaches.
