Whether you plan to throw a lavish party or hold an intimate ceremony, these destinations will make the celebration an unforgettable one.
These Dreamy Local Destinations are Perfect for Beach Weddings

Many couples dream of the picture-perfect beach wedding. Nothing sounds more romantic than exchanging "I dos" against a sunset backdrop. Fortunately, we live in a country with more than 7,000 islands, where there's no shortage of picturesque spots.

If you're one of those couples who dream of making the sea witness to your eternal vows, you may want to hold your ceremony in one of these destinations:

Buenavista, Marinduque

With a name like Buenavista, couples should be able to expect a beautiful view. Thankfully, this once sleepy small town in Marinduque lives up to its name. Off the coast of Buenavista lies Elephant Island, a breathtaking destination ideal for the most exclusive of events. Carved on the side of the island's mountainous terrain are white buildings that stand starkly amidst the lush vegetation and blue sea. The area is often likened to Greece's Santorini.

Panglao Island, Bohol

You can’t go wrong with Panglao Island when it comes to holding a beach wedding. After a beautiful daytime ceremony by the sea, you and your spouse can easily slip into your honeymoon, exploring Alona Beach, Hinagdanan Cave, and the island's many colorful coral reefs and diving spots. Not only will your guests be moved by the intimacy of your ceremony, they will also appreciate the mini-vacation that comes with attending your wedding.

Boracay, Aklan

When listing tropical paradises in the Philippines, Boracay is still a top-of-mind destination, especially after its massive makeover in 2018. The island boasts of the Philippines' most famous white-sand beaches and is known worldwide for its pristine beauty. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more picturesque local destination than Conde Nast's Readers' Choice Awards Best Island in Asia 2019.

Boracay, Aklan is also home to award-winning resort Movenpick Resort and Spa Boracay, which was recently acknowledged as one of Asia's Best Beach Wedding Destinations in the prestigious Hitchbird Wedding Awards 2019. The resort, nestled on the northern tip of Boracay Island in Punta Bunga Cove, is the ultimate wedding destination, where you can choose to hold your ceremony at the private beach in Punta Bunga. It's one of the few places in Boracay that isn't exposed to hordes of tourists, so you get to enjoy the intimacy of your wedding.

Make sure to arrive at least a day before the ceremony to get plenty of rest before your big day. Book a room with a breathtaking seaside view or rent Movenpick's Sol Marina Villa. The latter comes with its own private pool and jacuzzi so you and your spouse-to-be get to enjoy and relax while counting down the hours to your future together.

Movenpick offers premium wedding packages to choose from so brides can rest easy during the important occasion. These wedding packages offer luxurious features, such as resort accommodations, dinner buffet receptions, and spa treatments.

Make your wedding a truly unforgettable event by choosing a deluxe destination, such as Movenpick. Check out their website or follow them on Facebook and Instagram for more updates.
