Do you have a favorite holiday? A time of year that you like so much, you want to have your destination wedding during that time? Thematic weddings are always loads of fun - especially holiday themed weddings. The decor is always amazing, the bridal party always looks so festive and the overall ambiance creates a setting that is magical. If you're thinking of having your destination wedding theme revolve around your favorite holiday, consider these festive locations.

Halloween Themed Wedding

Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado

Even though weddings are meant to inspire romance, the Halloween fanatic usually wants a bit of spook and fright incorporated into their big day. The Stanley Hotel, which is said to have inspired Stephen King's The Shining, offers those elements. The venue offers ghost tours of the supposedly haunted hotel. Many guests have reportedly experienced paranormal activity. Just don't book room 407 for your wedding night - it is considered the most haunted room in the hotel.

Christmas Themed Wedding

ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjarvi, Sweden

Brr... if you really want to take advantage of the Christmas spirit, the ICEHOTEL is the place to do it. The ice church, which is only open from Christmas Day through April, can only accommodate up to 40 people, so this venue would work for an intimate Christmas wedding. The walls and ceiling are made of snow, and the altar and benches are made of ice. Let your wedding guests "chill out" by having your Christmas destination wedding at the ICEHOTEL.

St. Patrick's Day Themed Wedding
