Best Beaches For A Beach Wedding

Posted: 12/13/11 11:59 AM ET

Planning a wedding on home soil can seem complex at the best of times: the church, the dress... the groom? But following the everything-is-better-at-the-beach school of thought, saying your vows on a palm-fringed beach is infinitely more exciting and well worth the months of seating plan nightmares. Step forward Beach Tomato's team of fashion-savvy travel experts who have put together their top three beach wedding destinations, from idyllic 'I do' sands, to post-nuptial hideaways and of course the perfect wedding gown to sweep across the sand in.

For those who spent their childhood daydreaming about the most perfect wedding, Taprobane Island is here to make these fantasies become reality. This private island - situated a mere elephant ride (yes, elephant ride) through the water of Waligama Bay - is the most idyllic and secluded spot for you with your nearest and dearest. Do not fear bumping into the in-laws on your very own marital island, we say private - 2 ½ acres of tropical gardens will not only give you many a hiding place, but also location aplenty for your nuptials. Total blissed-out perfection.

Taprobane Island -- From $860 per night
