A wedding day is one which every couple wants to be perfect. However, it's worth noting that every single aspect of a wedding can often be broken down into 'importance' levels. Some factors of the day are going to be more substantial and significant than others, and today, we're going to take a look at one of them: the backdrop.
In this instance, we're going to pick a range of locations from throughout the world, every single one of which will provide you with an ideal setting for the big day.
10 Eiffel Tower
Paris is well known around the world as the City of Love and while there are arguments that can be made against that, nobody is denying how many iconic locations are littered around the French capital.
The obvious one is the Eiffel Tower, which just feels like the perfect backdrop for a wedding in more ways than one. Picture it: the music, the atmosphere, and the sight of a building that stands for so much more than just architectural brilliance.
We’ve got goosebumps just thinking about the memories that would be made.
9 Edinburgh Castle
Located in the iconic Scottish capital is one of the gems of the countries culture: Edinburgh Castle. These ruins serve as the focal point of this city, and if you happen to be in touch with your Scottish roots, then this is the place for you.
Tradition is important and a wedding on the grounds of Edinburgh Castle, or perhaps just the end of the ceremony, would be something to treasure.
Sure, the weather almost certainly wouldn’t be what you desire, but you can’t ask for too much over on the British Isles.
8 NYC Skyline
Find a nice, tidy, respectable venue on the outskirts of Brooklyn or just outside the city, then find a view that is going to really highlight this utterly breathtaking skyline.
There’s so much to love about New York City as a city within itself, but actually examining it and looking at it from afar really allows you to appreciate the grandeur of it all.
This place has been a hub for all things culture-related in the United States for longer than we can remember.
7 Westonbirt Arboretum
We’re heading to the depths of the Cotswolds in England for our next entry.
Westonbirt Arboretum is the most notable arboretum in the United Kingdom and actually backs onto the residence of Prince Charles, aka the future King of England.
Filled with endless trails and trees to sample, this place is about as close as you’re going to get to a green Narnia.
Alternatively, you can wait until the winter and check out the Enchanted Christmas event. Either way, there are endless possibilities and endless reasons to make this your wedding paradise.
6 Blue Lagoon
Everyone knows the Blue Lagoon for being a mystical, unique holiday getaway in the depths of Iceland, and so they should. Sure, it might be a little bit pricey, but getting married here will quite literally make you feel like you’re entering a scene from Game of Thrones.
Or, if you’d rather avoid the fictional side of things, just picture yourself being transported back into the Viking days.
The only explanation that is really needed for the Blue Lagoon comes from any images associated with it. Tranquil, peaceful, beautiful.
Hawaii is the kind of holiday getaway that seems almost too good to be true – as if it’s just been exaggerated or imagined entirely from shows like Lilo & Stitch. Alas, as it turns out, this place is real, and it’s stunning.
They’ve got a lot of traditions over there but in many ways, that isn’t even the point. The point is that if you want a sunny, beach wedding that’ll make you feel like you’re the queen of an entire island, jetting off to Hawaii will help you achieve just that.
4 Amalfi Coast
There’s a 50km stretch of coastline across Italy that needs to be seen in order to be believed.
From the rugged buildings to the sharp, steep cliffs that seem as if they’ve been painted, the Amalfi Coast is a home away from home.
Even after the ceremony is finished the fun will only just be beginning, whether it be due to the Italian wine or the endless stream of food that’ll leave you feeling incredibly sick the next morning.
Both options work for us, but beyond that, the coast itself is where it’s at.
3 Japanese Cherry Blossom
Catching the cherry blossom over in Japan is something everyone should strive to put on their bucket list, and funnily enough, that’s actually one of the strongest ‘plus’ reasons we can think of for doing a wedding like this.
Not only will the backdrop be to die for, but the unique aspect that comes with it will give you a wedding that quite literally none of your guests will ever forget.
They may go back to the region at some point in the future, but it’ll never quite be the same.
2 Niagara Falls
It’s defined as being its own city, but Niagara Falls, in itself, is a group of three waterfalls that collaborate to make for, simply put, the most dramatic backdrop to be found in the United States of America.
The fact alone that it crosses two states is cool enough, but let’s face it, this place could be thrust into any type of environment, occasion or scenario and it would fit the bill ten times out of ten.
Nature can be so wonderful sometimes, and Niagara Falls is living, breathing proof of that.
1 Napa Valley
Tucked away in the depths of California State is Napa Valley. You may know it as the home of wine or perhaps even ‘the place all the celebs go’, but what we love is the scenery.
Firstly, you know it’s going to be hot all year round and that’s a big plus for everyone. Secondly, the mountain range gives off the impression of a ‘hidden gem’, even though it’d actually quite well known.
Sure, it’s high-end, but when it’s the biggest day of your life then you’ll want to be paying for the very best. In short, that’s what Napa is.
