Top Wisconsin Destination Weddings
Wisconsin might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of “destination wedding.” You’re probably imagining a magical trip out to Hawaii, the excitement of a Vegas celebration, or maybe something more extravagant like a romantic wedding in Cancun. Wisconsin most likely doesn’t even make your top ten—and that’s where you just might be wrong. While not as enticing as the white shores of Cancun, a lakeside retreat in Wisconsin is a guaranteed close second. The lush greens of Wisconsin golf courses and the secluded forest getaways make you feel like you’re in a complete different world as you exchange your vows. Celebrate with your friends and family with relaxing kayaking trips, golf excursions, or soothing spa treatments. Discover the wonders of Wisconsin as you plan a wedding that no one will ever forget!
