Welcome to a destination that genuinely loves to welcome you and your guests. It’s famous for refreshing adventures and restful relaxation; visitors naturally unwind from the moment they arrive. That much-needed vacation feeling takes hold, leaving behind everyday life for a while in favor of mingling, laughing, and savoring time among family and friends.

Hundreds of couples that wed each year in the Greater Palm Springs area love to talk about why this magical resort was their ideal wedding destination. A minimum 350 days of sunshine; championship golf courses; award-winning spas; fabulous restaurants; and loads of good, healing desert energy are a way of life here. Newlyweds return again and again, as it becomes a favorite romantic escape.

Wedding locations take advantage of the special nature of the desert, offering venues in the great outdoors (including Indian Canyons, Empire Polo Club, The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, and Joshua Tree National Park), resort hotels (including Riviera Palm Springs, Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa, La Quinta Resort & Club, Miramonte Resort & Spa, Parker Palm Springs, and Ace Hotel & Swim Club), golf resorts (JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Indian Wells Resort Hotel, Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa, and Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa), private estates (Casa de Monte Vista and The Lucy House), midcentury modern boutique hotels (Del Marcos Hotel, Horizon Hotel, and Orbit In), exotic inns (Korakia Pensione and El Morocco Inn and Spa), and historic hotels and estates (Colony Palms Hotel, Cree Estate, Ingleside Inn, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn and O’Donnell House, and Villa Royale Inn).

These and other venues and attractions offer outstanding honeymoon possibilities.

A short, pleasant drive from Los Angeles, Orange County, or San Diego and an easy place to fly into, the Greater Palm Springs area offers a stress-free and accessible destination-wedding locale. And a host of local professionals are ready to help every step of the way.
