Here's why we highly recommend domestic destination weddings and honeymoon venues.

If you prefer to travel less

When most people think of destination weddings or honeymoons, they think of far flung locales that require an 8+ hour flight or 2+ layovers (not ideal!) We're here to tell you that is definitely not the case and why you should really consider domestic destinations for either your wedding venue or your honeymoon spot.

The United States is home to some of the most gorgeous and dreamy landscapes. Our Loverly editors are huge fans of beach weddings, and Holiday Inn Resorts has some of the most spectacular beach front venues that you'll seriously swoon over without paying a fortune.
