Destination Wedding

The wedding gown, flowers, cake and everything else are certainly very important. But I believe, it is the venue that will provide the biggest style punch.

If you have always wanted to get married in a dream location, or if you have ever been to a venue that stands out because of its opulence and luxury, then this post is for you. There’s no denying the fact that we all want an over-the-top venue that will stun everyone. Some choose an old medieval church, while others get married on a beachside location. Vineyards, barns, and mountain tops are favorites too.

I have created a list of some absolutely fantastic venues a girl can dream of. Presenting some of the most luxurious wedding venues you can find!

MolenVliet Wine Estate – Stellenbosch, South Africa
