  1. Riviera Maya, Mexico
  2. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
  3. Ocho Rios, Jamaica
  4. Negril, Jamaica
  5. Cancun, Mexico
  6. Montego Bay, Jamaica
  7. Castries, St. Lucia

  10. Maui, Hawaii

The study included Delta Vacations' destinations across Latin America, the Caribbean and the U.S.

"With year-round temperate weather, a plethora of excursions, an array of accommodations of all types and unforgettable scenic backdrops, it's easy to see why many couples choose to get married in these destinations," said Elizabeth Moriarty, Delta Vacations vice president, product development, in a written statement.
