Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are married! People all over the world watched as the royal wedding was revealed on television. The ceremony, which took place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England, will likely inspire a number of royal-inspired soirées for brides and grooms exchanging vows in the states.

While most women want to feel like a princess on the wedding day, some brides choose to actually look the part by exchanging vows at a castle venue. The fairy-tale setting is perfect for opulent celebrations and likely feature gorgeous décor showcasing lush blooms, sparkling crystals, and possibly even a horse-drawn carriage. We've featured a number of castle weddings in the pages of Inside Weddings and on InsideWeddings.com, and although there may be older – and possibly more romantic and historic – structures across the pond, there are still exquisite castle venues available for weddings in the United States.
