The weather outside may be frightful pretty soon, but that doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to have a chilly wedding if you have chosen to wed over the winter. With the world being made smaller and smaller by technology, you could conceivably choose to get married anywhere in the world! Many couples choose to have destination weddings, and there’s no better time to do so than in the winter, when temperatures are downright gorgeous in many wedding destinations! Here are five popular locations for wintertime destination weddings for you to consider:
No one does magic like Disney, and with a few different options offered at Walt Disney World in Orlando, you can have the wedding of your dreams. Whether you want to have just a few special guests, a reception for up to 20, or a larger wedding package, you and your beloved will be treated like royalty from start to finish. You aren’t limited to the resort in Orlando, of course; you can also get married at Disneyland in California, on a Disney cruise departing from south Florida, or America’s newest Disney resort, Aulani, in Hawaii.

Of course, you can also get married right on the sand! Make your own arrangements or have them made for you with an all-inclusive package.
On the Fiji islands, December, January and February are the peak of the summer. The weather is hot and humid, and there may be rain in the afternoon, but if you’re looking to get away from Old Man Winter, this is a wedding destination that will certainly warm you up!
You might wonder why Colorado is on the list of best wedding destinations for the winter. Colorado is home to many beautiful ski resorts which offer wedding packages!
