1) Grand Canyon, Arizona
The canyon, which is 277 miles long and an average of 6 miles wide, takes visitors on a journey through time. Its size alone is enough to take one’s breath away (and give you a workout), but there are plenty of other reasons couples choose it as their wedding site. From taking your vows under a massive pink-and-red sunset to rappelling down into it in full gear—yes, really!—the Grand Canyon offers some thrilling and unconventional ways for people around the world to celebrate one of life’s biggest moments. In 2011 alone, more than 500 wedding ceremonies took place here; many were officiated by park rangers or Native American tribal leaders. If that doesn’t say romantic, we don’t know what does.

2) Mt. Everest Base Camp, Tibet
No matter how many times you’ve seen it in photos or on TV, there’s no way you can truly understand just how big Mt. Everest is until you see it in person. At 29,035 ft., one of Mother Nature’s most stunning creations towers above other notable peaks like K2 and Aconcagua. If you and your significant other love hiking or if you simply want to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip, consider going all out with a luxury hike through Nepal, culminating at Everest Base Camp at 17,500 ft. For an unforgettable experience as two newlyweds, consider an independent tour where you can pick your own route (and photo ops). This will let you stay as long as possible at base camp before beginning your trek back down—or make it a round-trip! The option to go up or down doesn’t exist for everyone; some tour companies won’t let their clients go down due to health concerns. However, if you do have that option, be sure not to miss out on the chance of seeing Everest’s majestic peak from close range! If you’re looking for something more relaxing than climbing Mt. Everest but still want an adventure together, why not get married underwater? There are plenty of places around the world where couples can say I do underwater—whether that means getting married inside a tank filled with fish or floating in open water surrounded by ocean life.
3) Paris, France
If you’ve ever dreamed of getting married at a beautiful château surrounded by the French countryside, then you’ll love Paris, France. It’s one of our favorites because it offers everything from historical to modern venues—plus, there are affordable hotels and tons of entertainment options within walking distance. Note: You don’t have to get married in France. If traveling internationally is too expensive, consider getting married in your home city or a nearby locale. (But if you’re willing and able, it’s definitely worth splurging on an international wedding.) Bali, Indonesia: The last place you’d think to find stunning wedding destinations is Bali, Indonesia—but it’s absolutely gorgeous. This island paradise features scenic mountains, rice paddies, and breathtaking beaches that offer endless photo opportunities. Be aware that most hotels here do not offer traditional honeymoon suites; instead, they offer love huts that can accommodate up to four people. Regardless of what you choose for accommodations though, Bali is a great option for anyone looking for amazing beach views with their ceremony and reception. Oh…and did we mention they have daily yoga? Score! Rome, Italy: Want a classic Italian wedding?
4) A Helicopter, Scotland
There’s no better way to celebrate a momentous occasion like your wedding than taking an unforgettable helicopter ride. On top of being incredibly fun, helicopter rides are also safer than you might think! Flying in a small aircraft is much more practical than some people assume. Unlike commercial airline flights, helicopters take off and land vertically. This means you can avoid traffic jams and unexpected delays when picking up or dropping off guests on their way to your big day—and you don’t need special permissions from air traffic controllers, either. Booking a flight around Scotland can be done by contacting any one of the various local helicopter companies that service Stirling as well as Glasgow International Airport (GLA). The great thing about taking a helicopter to your wedding? You won’t have to worry about missing out on all those beautiful Scottish sights while driving from point A to point B. And if it happens to rain, you can still go ahead with your outdoor ceremony without having to worry about getting wet! Just remember to book early for the best availability. You may also want to consider renting a larger craft if you plan on flying with several other passengers or carrying heavy items such as gifts and centerpieces for your reception. That said, there are plenty of smaller helicopters available if you want an experience that feels just right for two.
5) Venice, Italy
Known for its bridges, canals, and romantic gondolas, Venice is an enchanting location for a wedding. The city of canals will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a world that’s far removed from reality. From water taxi rides to romantic boat hotels, it offers endless ways to celebrate your special day in style. Find out more about where to plan your special day in Italy. Sedona, Arizona: This stunning area is full of red rocks and beautiful scenery.

A fun way to have a beach-themed ceremony without getting sand everywhere! Learn more here. Venice Canals, California: This famous neighborhood located just outside of Los Angeles has some truly stunning views. Get married by one of their many beautiful bridges or in front of their historic homes. You could even get married on one of their many houseboats!
6) Bernal Heights Park, San Francisco
The San Francisco skyline provides a stunning background for a wedding, but it’s especially breathtaking in Bernal Heights Park. Guests can take pictures of you taking your vows while simultaneously gazing out at one of California’s most beautiful sights. Take note that there’s not much room here—and since weddings aren’t allowed on Saturdays, plan accordingly. Another tip: It’s important to make sure that you bring everything necessary for a large group (chairs, tables, etc.) and confirm parking before getting married here. What better place to get married than under what is considered one of nature’s greatest works? Perched above Niagara Falls are two bridges with panoramic views of Horseshoe Falls and American Falls. There is an option for both indoor and outdoor venues—but if the weather isn’t cooperating, have no fear because an indoor space is available as well. This site also comes with complimentary hotel rooms, limousine services, and even honeymoon packages depending on your budget needs!
7) Great Wall Of China, China
The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect against raids and invasions from various nomadic groups. Several walls were being built as early as 770 BC (most notably by Qin Shi Huang) for protection against intrusions from Xiongnu tribes but were later joined together during Emperor Wudi’s rule in 220 BC. Since then, it has been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced; its present state stretches from Dandong in Liaoning Province all the way to Lop Nur in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The sectioned portion near Beijing was established as a World Heritage Site in 1987 while another section is currently on UNESCO’s tentative list. It is now recognized as one of the greatest architectural feats in history and receives over 13 million visitors each year. Title: Great Wall Of China – A Must-Visit Destination For Every Traveller
