We all dream of the moment: you’ve just married the love of your life, your dress was everything you’d dreamed it would be, and your pictures are stunning. Now, it’s time to post. It’s time to let everyone in your Instagram world see the work of your careful planning and the beginning of your life-long love story.

The destination of your wedding should shine as brightly as you do in your Instagram post, accentuating your day in every way, reaching its maximum “Instagrammable” potential. That’s why we’ve compiled the five most Instagrammable wedding destinations. Happy posting!

Los Angeles, California

Even just the name elicits an awe factor. Los Angeles, bustling with the glitz and glamor of Hollywood celebrities, is an iconic wedding destination. The possibilities are endless: luxurious hotels, proximity to the beach, and famous locations from movies throughout the area. Why not get married in the City of Stars, and hop over to the Griffith Observatory for wedding pictures? Your post, with the one-and-only observatory from La La Land shining in the background, will absolutely overtake your followers’ Instagram feeds.

Cinque Terre, Italy

Made of five idyllic lands — Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore — Cinque Terre is nestled along the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. Colorful buildings, pinks and blues and yellows and oranges dot the land in charming towns along the sea. It’s an intimate, delightful, scenic destination for your Italy wedding. Opt for a boat send-off after your reception, and even go for an intimate tour of the Cinque Terre coastline with your partner. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience for your Instagrammable destination wedding.

Santorini, Greece

You can already see it: the infamous architecture of Santorini stretching off into the distance, miles and miles of bright white buildings, their crisp, clean edges and blue roofs glowing in the sunshine. The city offers many diverse venue choices, including wineries, villas, restaurants, and breathtaking views of the sparkling Aegean Sea and the stony volcanic landscape around you. Santorini is every Instagrammer’s dream, and your wedding will stand out amongst the rest with this destination.

Queensland, Australia

Romance in the rainforest, barefoot on the beach, celebrating in the capital city of Brisbane, or even hidden away in the hinterlands, Queensland offers it all. This Australian state covers the country’s northeast section, stretching along the coastline that houses the Great Barrier Reef. Imagine a wedding reception directly on one of Australia’s infamous surfing beaches, serene and sunny and blissful. As if that couldn’t be topped, you then whisk your guests away for a reception at a pavilion in the rainforest. It’s all possible — and Instagrammable — in Queensland.

Sedona, Arizona

A desert wedding amidst the red rocks of Sedona is an experience your guests will never forget, and an image your Instagram followers will love. With vast mountain ranges, unique rock formations and canyons, and the warm glow of red everywhere you turn, Sedona is the perfect destination for a desert wedding. Wed atop a flat mesa, surrounded by your immediate family. Or, gather at the base of a mountain for an outdoor ceremony and reception beneath the stars. With countless venues to choose from, and an infinite amount of stunning backdrops for your photos, a destination wedding in Sedona is, without a doubt, Instagrammable.
