So you have finally decided to get engaged and are planning your wedding and have bought the perfect wedding engagement rings and now you are ready to plan your Honeymoon in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
The Polynesian Island of Tahiti inspires thoughts of turquoise colored seas, bright blue skies and Gauguin’s brilliant color palette. With the island’s immaculate beaches and drastic mountain peaks, it’s easy to see why Tahiti is gaining in popularity as an important wedding destination. Anyway, here is our mini-guide to get you started on where to get hitched in Tahiti.
The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa offers breathtaking views of Mount Otemanu, which means you’ll have some wedding snaps that’ll look like you got married on a movie set.
The property has areas suited to a beach wedding, but you’ll also find a chapel on site, if you’re looking for something a little more traditional. However, this isn’t any ordinary chapel, since it has a glass floor with views into the crystalline waters, with an altar that frames the mountainous backdrop.
Four Seasons Bora Bora offers a stunning selection of wedding locations that’ll take you beyond the usual Polynesian beach wedding. You can get married in a chapel with views of the lagoon, making it perfect for a sunset wedding.
The tiny island of Moorea is just 50 minutes by ferry from the Tahitian capital of Papeete, with vistas of the South Pacific that make the whole journey worthwhile. It’s a little cheaper than Bora Bora, but no less beautiful. Each room at the Moorea Pearl Resort and Spa is decorated in traditional Polynesian style, without sacrificing the luxury element. You can have a traditional wedding here, with a flower-decked villa and traditional Tahitian dancers.
You can also opt for Legends Resort on Moorea, where you have the site spread out across 17 acres of hillside with stunning views of the surrounding sea. While it might not offer any overwater bungalows, it does have some stunning villas and one of the best restaurants in Tahiti on site.
If you’re looking for an economical option for your guests, then try hosting them in the vicinity of the capital Papeete, like the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti, where you can organize a wedding on Moorea, with beautiful and dramatic natural backdrop.
The St. Regis Bora Bora resort is ideal for a potential wedding setting, since this place is definitely a stand-in for paradise. You have a number of ceremonial spaces to choose from, such as white sandy beaches or a lush green lawn next to a spa. The site has its own planning staff to ensure things run smoothly for you.
