Who Got Married Where: 2017’s Most Beautiful And Stylish Destination Weddings

There is a certain charm about a couple holding a destination wedding. The beauty of the location and its relevance to their love story or personality contribute to making the event more special than it already is.

As the couple marks a special day in the new chapter of their lives, they take with them a select group of guests, to experience their union in a setting so picturesque it makes for the perfect backdrop of such a romantic once-in-a-lifetime affair.

Opting for a destination wedding also means having a more intimate number of guests. Besides, you can’t (and won’t) bring everyone on your Friends list on Facebook. A small wedding is actually among the wedding trends now (including that all-important, must-be-unique wedding hashtag).  

Here are the destination weddings of celebrities, fashion industry insiders, and influencers held in 2017 that we simply can’t get enough of:

 

#TheWanForAnne

 

WHO: Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff

This couple is the epitome of cool. And their much-anticipated wedding was, as expected, fresh and extraordinary. Somehow, people pretty much knew Anne and Erwan would go for a destination wedding. The only question was where. Their choice of destination, New Zealand, was quite surprising since it’s not a common and go-to tourist destination for most Filipinos. As photos from their wedding dominated our feeds, we got to see how beautiful this place is and how perfect it was for this outdoorsy, adventurous, and laid-back couple. Anne was a radiant bride in her custom Monique Lhuillier wedding gown while Erwan looked handsome in his Mario’s suit.

This is undeniably the most glamorous wedding of the year.

Of course, how can we forget the bride’s gorgeous pink wedding gown by Michael Cinco?! Hayden, meanwhile, was every inch dapper in his Tom Ford suit. Michael, who was one of the guests, took to Instagram to share his thoughts about this wedding: “The spectacular and extravagant wedding of @victoria_belo and @dochayden at the Paris Opera is probably the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen...and I'm so proud and happy to be part of it...” The guests included celebrities Piolo Pascual, Marian Rivera, Dingdong Dantes, and their daughter Zia; Jodi Sta.

What a chic and laid-back beach wedding in Boracay! The most interesting thing about this wedding is that the bride designed her own gown and reception dress. She is, after all, one of the most go-to fashion designers in the country today. She accessorized her wedding gown with a pair of earrings in 7.67cts blue tanzanite, 1.5cts rose cuts diamonds, set in 18k white gold by Nicole Whisenhunt while her reception dress was matched with a pair of custom earrings by Matthew and Melka. Her husband, meanwhile, wore a tux by Ziggy Savella.  Their guests included Camille Villar, Nicole Whisenhunt, Jerika Ejercito, and Janine Gutierrez.
