BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - Last year on April 29th, over 2 billion people around the globe watched the fairy tale wedding of Kate Middleton to Prince William. As the world tunes in to see how the young royal couple celebrates their one-year anniversary, the team at, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, has tapped into their romantic side to compile a list of Top 10 Wedding Anniversary Getaways featuring destinations for couples, of all styles, types and ages, to celebrate their love and marriage.

Here are six of's 10 best wedding anniversary getaways for couples. These destinations, all in the northern hemisphere, offer everything from romance and relaxation to freedom and fine food. Pick your style of trip and see where it takes you:

For the newlywed couple on a budget:
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
- Starting a new life together can be expensive, and the first few anniversaries can sometimes get pushed aside. For those looking to celebrate an anniversary without a hefty price tag, consider heading south to Santo Domingo, a dollar gets you a long way. There are plenty of resorts in the area, so finding an affordable all-inclusive package is easy. Spend your days basking in the sun, or hit the streets of the Dominican's bustling capital. As a lesser-known tourist destination, Santo Domingo offers visitors the ability to see the city on their own terms while meeting expectations as a tropical utopia.

For the expectant couple:
Sonoma, California
- Looking to get that one last romantic vacation in before the little one arrives? Babymoons are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason -- they're a last chance for sleep and freedom. Sonoma is already known as a destination filled with Michelin starred restaurants and, of course, world-class vineyards. But it's also a great babymoon destination. Hotels and resorts like Hotel Healdsburg and Spa have entire menus dedicated to expecting mothers and fathers, and all treatments are designed to help you relax, prepare and get the most out of the final weeks before junior arrives.

For the couple looking to renew vows:
Las Vegas, Nevada
- Why not ditch the floral arrangements, the fancy cake and the relatives for Las Vegas? You've been there and done that. Here's a second chance at running away to declare your love for one another. You can head to the Viva Las Vegas Chapel where an Elvis impersonator will renew your vows and sing for you, book a ceremony outside the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign, or keep it simple and head to the drive thru. Whatever you decide, there's a way to make in happen in Vegas.

For the couple and the kids
Paradise Island, Bahamas
- Whether you want to make your kids a part of your anniversary experience or you simply can't find a babysitter, there's something for everyone on Paradise Island. This tropical oasis meets non-stop beach adventure in surprising ways. Get once-in-a-lifetime experiences and swim with the dolphins, shoot down a water slide in shark-infested waters or snorkel in the densely populated lagoons. Then mom and dad can take turns at the golf course, the spa and maybe even head over to the Bacardi distillery. Everyone will go home with a story to tell and a tan to show off.

For the couple interested in a "His and Hers" getaway:
Edinburgh, Scotland - Consider heading to Scotland for the perfect blend of "yours, mine and ours" anniversary experiences. Some of Scotland's best spa and golf resorts are just a drive away, including Carnoustie Hotel and The Gleneagles Hotel. Or, scope out the whiskey scene with Glenkinchie distillery tours and The Scotch Whiskey Experience. Old Town and New Town are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so for history buffs, the entertainment is endless. Plus, the art scene is abundant with galleries and museums, including the National Gallery of Scotland.

For the couple seeking a romantic escape:
Positano, Italy - Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, sometimes it's hard to keep that romantic flame burning. But a trip to the Amalfi Coast is sure to help. Like most of Italy, the wine, the food and the atmosphere leave one yearning for a more permanent Italian residence -- and Positano has that and more. Weave in and out of the picturesque hillside village, sipping limoncello and taking in the old fishing-village culture. The beaches are a must-see. Be sure to check out the Santa Maria Assunta church, which houses artifacts from the 13th century.
