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.

The Place: Taprobane Island, Sri Lanka

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
