Choosing the flower arrangements, the food, the music and deciding on a place to honeymoon may thrill some, but others may long for a simpler solution. Destination weddings can provide just that, with resorts handling all of the details so couples can get back to what's important: celebrating their lives with each other. The following are five fantastic resorts that promise an unforgettable wedding day, and are located in some of the most beautiful places in the world. [caption id="attachment_32640" align="aligncenter" width="654" caption="Bagan, Burma. Pic: AP."][/caption]
Bagan, Burma
Though Burma doesn't typically jump out as a romantic destination, Asian Weddings & Honeymoons recommends the Aureum Palace Bagan Resort as "one of most spectacular backdrops for a destination wedding found anywhere in Asia, or elsewhere for that matter." This elegant resort offers a taste of what may be to come in Burma, with luxury accommodations and amenities set amidst an ancient backdrop. Here you can tie the knot while overlooking the ancient temples of Bagan, then retreat to your villa with a private jacuzzi and celebrate your wedding beneath the stars.
Maldives
If you've ever seen a photo of the crystal waters, the huts built over the sea, the white-sand beaches or otherwise sheer perfection of the Maldives, you'll know why many couples choose to tie the knot here. Although non-Muslim couples cannot legally marry here, they can hold a symbolic or non-binding ceremony, according to Smart Travel Asia. There are a number of resorts that cater to romantic getaways and offer vacation packages, so you'll be spoiled for choice when deciding where you want to promise yourself to your beloved forever. The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort offers guests the option of an undersea ceremony held in a glass-ceilinged restaurant five meters below sea level or a beachfront wedding. Both come with extensive luxury wedding packages that include spa treatments, a champagne breakfast in bed, private boat ride and many other amenities. [caption id="attachment_32641" align="aligncenter" width="512" caption="Pic: AP."][/caption]
Boracay, Philippines
Boracay has gained a reputation for being a place to party in recent years, and not without reason. But it is also still a stunning and romantic island and provides a perfect backdrop to an exotic beachfront wedding. Shangri-La's Boracay Resort & Spa is a five-star resort that is well-versed in putting on lavish weddings, so you can have both your elegant ceremony and reception and a perfect ceremony on the beach. You can host your reception outside in the sea air or indoors in the beautiful ballroom - so even if you're traveling far from home for this destination wedding, you can tailor it to exactly your tastes. And when you wake up the next morning, you'll already be on your honeymoon.
Langkawi, Malaysia
Though its beaches are sometimes overshadowed by the more famous Thai beaches to the north, Malaysia is home to some rather spectacular scenery of its own. Langkawi is one of the country's premier destinations, and The Datai Langkawi (also recommended by Smart Travel Asia) one of its best resorts. The Datai offers reasonably-priced wedding packages that include a Western-style ceremony and can be tailored to include a Malaysian welcoming ceremony as well. The resort will also arrange for local performers to put on a cultural show upon request. [caption id="attachment_32645" align="aligncenter" width="475" caption="Beautiful Bali. Pic: AP."][/caption]
Bali, Indonesia
You can't really talk about Asian wedding locales without Bali being in the mix. This beautiful, otherworldly destination has an almost overwhelming number of options for wedding venues, as many of the high-end resorts there offer special packages for lovebirds. The Grand Mirage in particular offers a number of packages to suit different needs and desires, including a ceremony lit by 1,000 candles and a traditional Royal Balinese ceremony held on the beach.
