Why isn’t America seen as a wedding destination?

One of the main reasons why some people don’t think of America as a viable wedding location is that they think it’s too similar to their home. People tend to think of the American cities and towns and imagine that America doesn’t have anything particularly special for them. But, what a lot of people don’t consider is just how big America is. There’s a lot more to it than most of us realise. There is every kind of scenery you can imagine and amazing food on almost every street.

One of the great things about America is the rural scenery. In small, quaint towns like Camden, Maine, and Lake Placid, New York, there are blue lakes and misty mountains on either side. In fact, there are hotels and restaurants right on the water that light up at dusk and give you stunning views. A wedding here would be a dream, and you know that your wedding would be extra special because it’s so original. Or, if you’re looking for an exceptionally unique wedding, you could take the party into the trees. At Treehouse Point in Washington you and your partner could get married in a treehouse hidden in a fairy tale forest. If that wasn’t enough, you could also stay overnight in a treehouse for a truly peaceful wedding night.

If you think that’s too tame for you then you have even more options for a wedding in the wilderness. Have an authentic cowboy wedding at Rim Rock Ranch in California and dine with your guests in the dessert. Or, if you’re looking for grass rather than sand, bring your guests to the untapped wilderness in Montana at the Paws Up Resort. There are creeks, hills, trees, and open fields that are all perfect locations for saying ‘I do’. And, if even that isn’t wild enough for you, you could go glamping literally anywhere in the wilderness. If you choose the spot you want you can call up a lamping company and they’ll bring the tents and lamps right to you. There’s no other way to get in touch with the American wilderness.

If you prefer a wedding that’s a bit more stylish and metropolitan then you can head to one of the big cities for almost endless options of venues. Any lovers of vintage would leap on the chance to host their reception at ‘Big Daddy’s Antiques’. They have stores in California, San Francisco and Los Angeles and each of them can be turned into a venue for your wedding reception. Set out some vintage tables and chairs amongst birdcages, grand pianos, vintage art and under a myriad of antique chandeliers and lamps.

These venues are only some of the amazing places to get married in America. You could get married in an abandoned mill in Minnesota or under a bridge in Oregon. The uniqueness and creativity of American weddings can’t be found anywhere else in the world. So, if you want to have the wedding of a life time, don’t wait to apply for your ESTA and fly out today. Neither you nor your guests will regret it.
