Every love story needs a fairytale setting. Thankfully, from Walt Disney World to Palm Beach, Florida can leave you as starry-eyed as your spouse. So whether you’re planning for the big day or the perfect honeymoon retreat, be the ones that got away at these 7 destinations in 2023...


Orlando is mostly known for its abundance of family-friendly attractions. Yet although bustling theme parks may not scream romantic bliss, a fairytale wedding does. Walt Disney World Resort offers wedding packages to make your special day something to treasure forever. So, if you’ve always dreamed of having Cinderella’s castle as your wedding photo backdrop, an Orlando wedding can make that happen. 

Beyond the magic of Disney, Orlando has plenty more to offer loved-up visitors. Whether it’s dining in grand restaurants, snuggling up for a sunset by the lake, or taking in a live show, you will no doubt fall in love with O-Town too.   

Our top pick for accommodation… 

Four Seasons Resort 

Expect first-class treatment at this luxurious resort. With an adults-only pool, couples’ massage treatments, and dining to the sight of Disney’s astonishing firework displays, your stay here is sure to be as special as the big day itself. 

Honeymoon Island 

It simply wouldn’t be right not to include Honeymoon Island when listing the best Florida destinations for weddings and honeymoons. The name honestly says it all. This stunning isle on the Gulf of Mexico provides over four miles of soft sand to curl up together on. Being part of the Honeymoon Island State Park, it also boasts impressive trails for a couple’s hike or bike ride. Explore one of the last remaining virgin slash pine forests while keeping a keen eye out for wildlife. Eagles, osprey, and gopher tortoises to name a few. 

Honeymoon Island is also the ferry terminal for another breathtaking spot, Caladesi Island. So, one thing for sure is that you won’t be short on beautiful backdrops for all your newlywed selfies. 

Our top pick for accommodation… 

Hampton Inn Dunedin 

This Hilton complex is just a five-minute drive to Honeymoon Island State Park and provides all the luxuries you could need, such as a swimming pool, fitness centre, and a continental breakfast.  


This South Florida hotspot, with its Art Deco landscape, vibrant nightlife, and, of course, the famed South Beach, is one of the trendiest places to tie the knot or honeymoon at. For an autumn or winter wedding, Miami’s warm climate, with little rain, makes for an ideal choice.  

Date nights also don’t come much better than delicious dining, superb live shows, and cocktails until the wee hours. Plus, the city is host to a remarkable selection of luxury resorts to top it all off. 

Our top pick for accommodation… 

Acqualina Resort and Residences on the Beach 

With an award-winning spa, oceanfront swimming pools, and world-class dining destinations, it’s no wonder this 5-star Mediterranean villa-inspired hotel is rated one of the best in the US. 


Sandy white beaches, emerald green waters, and stunning sunsets make Destin a top choice for weddings and honeymoons. Beach weddings have become increasingly popular here and it’s easy to see why. But if you’re a couple who likes a little adventure in their lives, you’re also in luck, as Destin boasts plenty of opportunities for water sports. Fishing is another extremely popular option here, with its nickname being, ‘World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.’ So, if you are looking to start a new shared hobby - or just make a lot of puns about being a good catch - this one is for you. 

Our top pick for accommodation… 

Henderson Park Inn 

This adults-only secluded lodging amongst the lush nature of the Emerald Coast has everything you need for an idyllic stay. Cosy up and soak in the panoramic views from the comfort of your own private balcony. 

Key West 

As the southernmost point of the US, this section of the Florida Keys offers laid-back Caribbean vibes, exquisite beachfront resorts, charming Old Town architecture, and celebratory sunsets, which include jugglers and fire-eaters. This concoction of goodies adds together to make for the perfect Florida wedding and honeymoon destination. Plus, the city has a few claims to fame. Known as the area where Ernest Hemingway wrote much of his acclaimed work, you can soak up a little literary history together. Then there’s the city’s iconic Key Lime Pie, the perfect excuse to share a dessert after some romantic wining and dining. 

Our top pick for accommodation… 

Sunset Key Cottages 

Sitting on a 27-acre island, Sunset Key Cottages has elegance down to a T. Whether you’re basking in the Floridian sunshine from your grand porch, swimming in the private pool, or pampering yourself at the spa, your married life will start off promising here. 


Situated just west of Tampa, Clearwater has romantic bliss written all over it. It boasts sugary white sand beaches, awe-inspiring sailboat excursions, and incredibly picturesque sunsets from the famed Pier 60, where the dazzling view can be enjoyed with live music and street performances. And for an extra honeymoon excursion, you may want to pay a visit to the Clearwater Aquarium, where you can witness the world of marine life rescue. 

Our top pick for accommodation… 

Opal Sands Resort & Spa 

Enjoy waterfront dining, poolside cocktails, and Gulf Coast balcony views at Opal Sands Resort & Spa. And for a romantic meal for two, be sure to head to the lavish on-site restaurant Sea Guini, which boasts an array of fresh seafood. 

Palm Beach 

If there’s ever a time to indulge in a little extravagance, a honeymoon would be it. Worth Avenue is the Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills, with opulence gleaming from every store window. But aside from picking up a few luxury items to add a little sparkle to your newlywed beginnings, Palm Beach also offers luxurious coastlines, excellent fine dining, and a burgeoning art scene, all in a swanky palm tree-lined setting. 

Our top pick for accommodation… 

The Breakers 

This stunning luxury accommodation set in a beautifully landscaped oasis will take your honeymoon to a whole new level. Housing four oceanfront pools, six hot tubs, a spa, and two golf courses, there is certainly no shortage of ways to truly indulge yourself.
