Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular. And why not? Combining wedding vows with an idyllic honeymoon destination provides the simplicity of one coordinated wedding-honeymoon package.

If you're searching for the perfect beach wedding location (and resort to handle everything!) then you're not alone – beach weddings top the list for many couples planning a destination wedding.
The list of fabulous wedding destinations grows each year: choose from the pristine destination wedding locations of Fiji, Bora Bora, Maui, Cook Islands and Bali. Or try the squeaky-clean, sugar-white beaches of severl destinations in Asia, the Indian Ocean or the Caribbean.
Closer to home – if you live in Australia or New Zealand – the Whitsunday Islands, including Hamilton Island, host stunning beaches and are among the most popular locations for a beach wedding in Australia.
Planning a destination wedding takes a lot of thought, and getting married in a far-away location typically requires early planning and preparation.
Importantly, it's vital to make sure that your destination wedding is legal: it may be necessary to fulfill residency requirements, take blood/medical tests, or produce official documentation, such as birth certificates, divorce records and valid passports. The documentation may also need to be translated into the country's own spoken language.
Because marriage license requirements often change, it is important that you verify all information with the country's local embassy or consulate before making any wedding or travel plans.
Often, the easiest way is to have a civil (legal) wedding at home first, followed by either a religious ceremony or wedding blessing at a destination of your choice, followed by the honeymoon.
