One of the hardest parts of planning a destination wedding is deciding where exactly you want to get married. There are so many beautiful locations around the world and so many venues to choose from. You’ve probably already thought about whether you want to get married on the beach looking out at the ocean, under a lovely gazebo, or in a charming chapel, but have you ever wondered about getting married in the sky? Take a look at our Top Ten Rooftop Destination Wedding Venues so you can get married while floating on air.
If you choose the oceanfront Martiniere Rooftop Terrace at the Sandos Cancun Lifestyle Resort in Cancun, Mexico, you will be guaranteed a five-star experience. This spacious terrace can accommodate up to 300 guests and provides stellar views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea below. At the Sandos Resorts, you can even earn up to US$3,000 credit to be used towards your wedding, based on the size of your group and the duration of your stay.
2. Ocean Coral & Turquesa Resort – Roof Top Terrace
This affordable all-inclusive resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico offers wedding services on their stunning Roof Top Terrace. We love how the bright yellow colour of Ocean & Turquesa’s terrace looks against the blue sky. This venue holds a maximum of 250 people and has a curfew of 11:00 PM, so you can have your ceremony and reception all in one place. Catholic ceremonies are also available at this venue.
If you want a similar feel to a rooftop reception but would prefer to be a little closer to earth, Ocean Coral & Turquesa has an equally gorgeous Lobby Terrace. The Lobby Terrace has a slightly smaller capacity at 200, but has the benefit of a later curfew of 1:00 AM, so you and your guests can celebrate well into the evening.
3. Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa – Purple Rooftop
The VIP Purple Rooftop at Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa is impressive enough when it serves as a luxury bar, but it will truly take your breath away when it is transformed into a wedding venue. We love the romantic aesthetic of this terrace, which can fit up to 100 guests who will get to look out over the water as they watch you say ‘I do.’

4. Royalton Negril – Sky Terrace
With its beautiful stone archway, the Sky Terrace at the Royalton Negril is the perfect setting for a luxurious, sophisticated ceremony. This rooftop venue is the only private ceremony location at the Jamaican resort, and offers everything you could need for your perfect day—a private bar, private washroom, and bridal suite, on top of the gorgeous panoramic views. It can fit up to 80 people.
5. The Fives Azul Beach Resort - Sky Deck
The Fives Azul Beach Resort, located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, Mexico, offers Sky Weddings with romantic rooftop ceremonies. Choose from six expertly designed wedding packages from ‘Coastal Bliss’ to ‘Pure Glamour’ or customize your own to suit your personal tastes. The views of the Caribbean Sea below doesn’t get better than this.
Have your ceremony while surrounded by towering trees and a lovely view of the white sand beaches by choosing the Wedding Terrace at Majestic Mirage Punta Cana. The Wedding Terrace can hold up to 50 guests for a private ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner reception.
7. Dreams Villamagna Nuevo Vallarta Resort & Spa – Gohan Sky Bar
This is another bar-turned-venue that could be the perfect spot for your wedding. Overlooking the beautiful water of Banderas Bay in Mexico, this venue has a bit of a more casual feel, while still delivering all of the excitement of a rooftop experience. The Gohan Sky Bar can accommodate up to 90 guests.
Sunset Rooftop - Dreams Tulum Resort, Mexico
8. Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa – Sunset Rooftop
The breathtaking Sunset Rooftop at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa can hold up to 140 to 160 guests. Located in the Riviera Maya, this tropical getaway offers a rooftop venue with unimpeded views of the gorgeous beachfront. You won’t regret sharing your special day with family and friends at this gorgeous location.
9. Grand Hyatt Baha Mar – 25th Floor Terrace
The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas might not have a rooftop venue, but its 25th Floor Terrace offers the same wow-factor. This venue offers a great view not only of the beach, but of the nearby downtown area, giving you the best of both worlds—luxurious beachfront and exciting cityscape. The space can hold up to 80 guests and includes an area for dancing.
10. Planet Hollywood Beach Resort, Costa Rica
The Signature Sky Terrace at the new Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Costa Rica has everyone talking. There is partial shade provided and an abundance of airy space. We recommend a ceremony or wedding reception during the sunset hours to capture the awe-inspiring changing of the colors of the sky above.
