. . . That Will Leave Your Guests in Awe and Your Wedding Photos More Majestic

January is almost over, and you know what comes next. The month of love, February, is a popular time for tying the knot. But figuring out the when is much easier than deciding the where. So you already have a date, what about the venue? Where do you plan on celebrating one of the most joyous occasions of your life?

Here’s the deal.

You don’t have to set your wedding in your hometown. Yes, there might be a few beautiful wedding venues in your locale. But if you really want to make your wedding truly memorable and special, you should consider a destination wedding.

The best part?

Wedding destinations are not as costly as you think. There are plenty of beautiful locations in the Philippines, perfect for hosting weddings, which offer wedding packages at affordable rates. You just have to be patient, do your research, and grab the best deal you can find ahead of time. Think also of how beautiful your wedding photos will be!

If you decide to opt for a destination wedding, here are a few pristine locations in the country that you might find interesting and wonderfully unique.

Top Wedding Locations in the Philippines for a One-of-a-Kind Nuptial

  1. Palawan

Many people consider Palawan as one of the most beautiful places in the country, for family vacations and hosting weddings. Vacationing foreigners and locals hail this province as one of the most memorable places they’ve ever been to, mainly because of the scenic spots, the many different outdoor activities it has to offer, as well as the friendly attitude of the locals.

Palawan is ideal for weddings because it offers a wide range of beautiful locations that guests and the newlyweds can enjoy such as the Underground River (otherwise known as the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park), Coron Bay in Busuanga, the Hidden Beach in El Nido, and many other local wonders. This majestic island is truly a perfect destination for friends, family, and lovers.

The best part?

Every photo you take in Palawan is instantly a work of wonder, because of the awe-inspiring vistas, from its beautiful beaches to the pristine mountainous regions.

  1. Camiguin Island

Some say that this small island province in Northern Mindanao can be explored within just a day. But who wants to experience beauty and splendor in a blink of an eye? Even though Camiguin is a small island and you can perhaps explore it in a day riding just a rented motorbike, this is the last thing you probably want to do. Why?

Camiguin boasts of a myriad of serene vistas and breathtaking natural beauty that you’ll probably need more than just a few moments to soak it all in. Whether you’re spending time with your loved one on its beautiful sandbar (the White Island), enjoying a swim and a few snapshots at a volcanic spring (the Ardent Hot Spring), or getting cozy with your special someone at the cold spring in Katibawasan Falls, make sure that your family and guests are with you enjoying the scenery and wearing comfortable swimwear.

There are also a variety of popular dive sites in Camiguin that many foreigners and locals frequent. So if you want to scuba dive with your new spouse and your guests, this is the perfect place to host your wedding.

  1. Baguio

Hailed by Filipinos as the summer capital of the Philippines, the city of Baguio has more to offer than just a cool and breezy climate. The region also has some of the most beautiful sceneries in the country, from the protected pine forest in Mt. Pulag to the Botanical Garden in the city’s downtown area.

Baguio also boasts of magnificent locations ideal for weddings such as Camp John Hay in the southeastern part of the city (said to be the most popular visitor attraction in the city), Mines View Park (an overlooking park nestled in the northeastern outskirts of Baguio), and Burnham Park (a 32-hectare urban park situated at the heart of Baguio City).

These are just three of the many other great destination locations in the Philippines that provide the perfect ambiance and elegance for a memorable wedding. Of course, we can add Boracay Island to the list, but it’s already so popular that it seems pointless to include it. If you want the road less traveled for hosting your special moment, then Boracay may be the exact opposite, even though it boasts of several beautiful wedding venues as well.
