Today I'm linking up with Jillian at Cornflake Dreams and Joelle from Where We Love Is Home to share my dream destination wedding. I'm actually getting married in Chicago next May and I'm in the midst of wedding planning. While we decided that Chicago would be the ideal location for us due to ease of planning, we did throw out the idea of a destination wedding many times when we first got engaged.
With my fiance's family being from Turkey, I think that a Turkish town on the Mediterranean would be the ideal location for a destination wedding. We visited a couple summers ago, and it is such an amazing place. The culture, the weather, the architecure, the blue waters and the amazing food make it feel like a true island getaway. In the summertime especially, the weather cannot be beat. I would opt to get married on a boat with our closest family and friends. There is something about getting married on the water that screams romance. I would trade the traditional long wedding gown that I'll be wearing next Spring for something short and sweet (it's hot in Turkey!). I'd love to wine and dine my guests with traditional Turkish cuisine, refreshing beverages and some light music to listen to out on the seas.
