With a long coast line and warm weather, Vietnam is definitely a paradise for beach lovers. It is not just a perfect place to spend a vacation but also a great destination to hold beach weddings. Most of our destination weddings have been held on the beach and after years of planning weddings, we are certain that Vietnam has numerous advantages for you to plan a beach wedding: amazing long beaches, nice weather and various choices of resort, even some of the most luxurious resorts in the world are in Vietnam.
After years of planning wedding across Vietnam, we have travelled to a great number of resorts from the north to the south, holding different types of wedding with various styles and sizes for both local and foreign couples. With no further ado, here goes our list of 5 best resorts for beach wedding in Vietnam. This blog will walk you through a list of 5 best resorts for beach wedding in Vietnam, voted by wedding planners of The Planners. Let’s keep in mind, the list was created based on 3 criterions:
- It should be a 5 star resort.
- It is located on a good location with a long beach view.
- It has spaces to hold both indoor and outdoor wedding.
The reason why we added indoor space as one of the criterions is that it is always a must to have a back up plan for an outdoor wedding, especially beach wedding. The weather can change quickly in just few hours on the day and having an indoor space to move the wedding inside is a must to make sure the wedding will go on smoothly.
