While we might be biased, destination weddings in Barcelona have it all: sunny beaches, architectural landmarks, and romance! Consider these 5 reasons to plan your Destination Wedding in Barcelona!

If you’re trying to decide whether you and your fiancé should jet off to Spain to say “I do”, look no further, we’re here to give you our top five reasons why you should host your destination wedding in Barcelona:

Reason 1. Barcelona´s Breathtaking Venues

Looking for a venue in Barcelona with that perfect touch of Old World romance? At the Historic La Baronia, you can have a glamorous wedding surrounded by all that nature has to offer. For something more scenic near the sea, exchange vows at the El Garraf where you can enjoy luxurious beaches, the nautical stations, and stunning cliff views. For the brides wanting to feel like a princess on their big day can even get married at Castell de Sant Marçal located only 25 minutes from the centre of Barcelona!

Take it from us, if you’re looking for a destination wedding with plenty of sunshine, Barcelona has some of the most beautiful weather in Europe.

Reason 4. Direct International Flight Access

One major perk about traveling to Barcelona for your destination wedding is that it’s convenient for guests to travel from the United States. Barcelona offers direct international flights from the U.S.  That’s right, no insane layovers or extra travel time here! Once guests land, they don’t have to bother renting a car – Barcelona is very walk-able or can be traveled through by the metro train like a local!

Reason 5. Endless Wedding Activities

Outside of the wedding festivities you and your guests will have plenty to do with all of the recreation, nightlife, and activities Barcelona has to offer. Get a sky high view of the Costa Brava countryside with a hot air balloon ride for some of the most breathtaking views of the area or enjoy the ocean by going kayaking or snorkeling off the Costa Brava. If you’re visiting during football season, watch a game at Camp Nou, the largest football stadium in Europe!
