If wedding bells are in your future and a great escape is on your mind, it’s time to talk honeymoons and destination weddings.

Wedding (planning) season is officially upon us, marked in part by the National Bridal Show where Flight Centre agents will be stationed from February 3-5 talking up the greatest places around the world to tie the knot or celebrate your first getaway as a wed couple. (Check out how to win tickets to the National Bridal Show in Toronto!)

It’s not hard to see the benefits of taking celebrations somewhere special when you take into account the stunning scenery and easy access to amenities that come with corralling all your loved ones into one fabulous place. Destination weddings make up 14% of Canadian weddings year-round and 25% of all Canadian weddings held between November and April.

Some top destination choices for both weddings and honeymoons:


Long stretch of Paradise Island, located in Nassau, Bahamas

This archipelago of over 700 islands is destined to make any wedding or honeymoon unforgettable, thanks to stunning white sand beaches and every accommodation offering imaginable, from secluded adults-only getaways to activity-packed, family-friendly resorts.

Set against the majestic backdrop of the Rockies, the expanse of the Prairies, the charm of Quebec City or anywhere in between, Canada can turn your wedding or honeymoon into a unique and picturesque experience full of great outdoor activities and memorable moments.

The Mayan Riviera is hot on both the destination wedding and foodie scenes.
