They say love can be found in the most unexpected places — and since 2008, an estimated one million guests have hosted their weddings in Homes on Airbnb

Many couples also consider Airbnb for accommodations for themselves and their guests on their special day, and over the last year, wish lists containing the word ‘wedding’ have grown 50 percent, with nearly 700,000 wedding wish lists created by Airbnb travelers.

When planning a wedding, destination choices can be seemingly limitless. For those looking for a ceremony setting that is more unique, or off-the-grid, Airbnb is sharing some trending wedding destinations that cater to a variety of couple types, with a sampling of the most wish listed Homes to house the happy couples and their guests below.

The Adventurers

For some couples, a calming beach vista is the ideal backdrop, but for others, the thrill of a destination more suited to exploring the great outdoors is more fitting. The collection of listed destinations boast majestic mountain views, cascading waterfalls and babbling hot springs for those seeking a more action-packed matrimony.

The City Slickers

For couples looking to celebrate their love in a vibrant metropolis with nightlife, incredible food and something for everyone on the guest list, many cities are rising in favorability.

The Sun Worshipers

The beachy retreats might often be overlooked in lieu of other tropical hot spots, but these more secluded oases make for the perfect, low-key wedding spot. Aside from the warm turquoise waters, these seaside towns have much more to offer — from eclectic street vendors in Itapema to breathtaking surf breaks in Merimbula, Australia.

The Escapists

Truly disconnecting and getting out of town is a trend we’re seeing from Airbnb travelers, and couples planning their weddings on the platform are no different. Many of the trending destinations for weddings this year are in remote locales tucked away in country hills, the edges of desert highways, and mountain ranges to national parks.

The Culture Connoisseurs

For couples seeking cultural immersions to celebrate their love, plenty of Airbnb’s trending wedding destinations are rich in heritage, art and have hundreds of years of historical significance. From the Byzantine and Moorish-influenced port city of Tangier, Morocco, to the ornate royal palaces and Javanese performance pavilions of Yogyakarta, Indonesia, there are thousands of options for couples seeking a local experience.
