Peninsula Hotel in Paris
Guest Review Rating: 4.9/5.0 on Hotels.com
Nothing is more romantic than a wedding in the City of Love and few hotels are as glamourous as the five-star Peninsula Hotel in Paris’ 16th Arrondissement. Located in the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe, the hotel features stunning views of the nearby Eiffel Tower.  Let the hotel’s Rolls-Royce Phantom limousine take you from the hotel to the altar then enjoy a reception catered by world-class chefs in the Peninsula’s elegant Rotunda with its stained glass windows and crystal chandelier. It’s guaranteed to be a day to remember. Rooms available from $1,271 per night. **

The Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

The Venetian can cater to every aspect of your wedding and even makes a great place for your wedding proposal where you’re guaranteed to get a “yes.” Rooms available from $205 per night.

Half Moon, Jamaica in Montego Bay, Jamaica
Guest Review Rating: 4.7/5.0 on Hotels.com

Half Moon can cater weddings from the most intimate to the most grand, offering a diverse choice of spectacular indoor and outdoor venues.

That sort of white-gloved glamour is sure to satisfy any bride and groom. Rooms available from $386 per night.
