Destination weddings are great...if you choose a location that friends and family are excited to visit.While most of your loved ones will travel far and wide to watch you get married anywhere, why not pick a destination that most people only dream about visiting? After all, a cross-country flight can cost just as much as a flight to one of these dreamy beaches. With the perfect combination of relaxation, entertainment, and luxury, these beach resorts below are a great choice for destination weddings.

Excellence Playa Mujeres

If you've been to Cancun before, it's sure to invoke memories of lazy beach days and crazy nights out. But even though you and your guests have (maybe?) left your Spring Break tendencies behind, you can still head to Cancun and have a ton of fun now that you're grown up. This adults-only all-inclusive resort is tucked into a previously untouched peninsula neighboring a wetland preserve. The guest rooms feature king-size beds, private Jacuzzis, and furnished balconies or patios. Or guests can upgrade and book a swim-up suite with direct access to the private pool. As for the wedding ceremony, the resort offers plenty of professional services to help with your big day. From an onsite wedding specialist to horse-drawn carriages, a complimentary suite for the groom before the wedding (optional of course), and a minister to oversee the service, no detail is too small to ensure that your special day is one that you and your guests will always remember. And with so much taken care of for you, you'll actually have time to spend time with your guests which is what they'll love most of all.

Jamaica Inn

With only 48 charming cottages and suites (and room for up to 100 wedding guests), the family-run Jamaica Inn is the perfect choice for an intimate and chic destination wedding. Located in Ocho Rios, your guests will have the choice of either relaxing at the hotels' pristine private beach or seeking out an adventure such as visiting Dunn's River Falls by boat or go river tubing at White River Valley. When it comes time for the wedding, you'll be saying your "I Do's" at a sunset ceremony followed by dinner on the sand under the romantic glow of paper lanterns. Need we say more?
