Hi friends! We’re back at it with our venue series, kicking this one off with our bucket list of 2022! We’re excited to add some new venues that have caught our eye! Last year’s destination weddings were an absolute dream, featuring three of these incredible bucket list venues you’ll see below – Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Pippin Hill Farm in Virginia, and Sage Lodge in Montana! Here are some more destination venues that we’re dreaming of planning a wedding at one day! And who knows, it might be your wedding!

If you haven’t experienced the amazingness that is Moab, we highly suggest it. This place is perfect for the glamping girl – a little bit glam, a little bit rustic, and a whole lotta’ fun!  The surroundings provide a magical backdrop for a serene and peaceful getaway. Moab Under Canvas has a variety of AMAZING spots to sleep and celebrate. Sip on some cocktails while you and your girls reminisce underneath a blanket of beautiful stars.

Address: 4135 Valley Commons Drive Ste. A, Bozeman, MT 597

There is something magically sweet about an Airstream Trailer. Maybe its the sleek design, or maybe its the fact that they make for some Pinterest-worthy photos – either way, we need one! Take a trip to Santa Barbara and rent out an airstrip from Autocamp! From the Autocamp Website: “Designed and built in Santa Barbara by Architect Matthew Hofmann, each Airstream is as unique as the history of its past. Boasting a combined 250 years of age – and surely thousands of miles on the road – our Airstreams are living out a third or fourth life as an Autocamp suite. Each Airstream comfortably sleeps four people and has been renovated locally with sustainable construction methods and materials.”

Address: 2717 De La Vina St. Santa Barbara, CA 93105

We’re big lovers of traveling, so any excuse to wrangle up the gals and we are in! What better way to celebrate with your friends than a big road trip on the coast.  Take the Highway One road trip to explore the coast of California. Our suggestion? Rent one of these super fun Vintage Surfari Wagons to really complete the trip! Make sure you map out your stops ahead of time. There is so much to see!

For ideas and places to pit stop on the road trip, check out here and here.

On a budget? No problem! For a more wallet-friendly option, throw a backyard shindig and make it a movie night! Set up some themed snacks (salted caramel popcorn, anyone?), add some comfy blankets and pillows, and pop in some rom-coms! Step it up notch and host a small dinner before the movie. A simple white sheet can act as the screen while you play movies on an affordable projector from Amazon.

Happy planning!
