Searching for a wedding location or bachelorette party town can be hard with so many great options to choose from. Besides being a locale that all your guests and ‘maids can get to without too much trouble, you also want a picturesque place that will pop on Instagram. Beyond making sure the venue itself is Instagram-worthy, the city should be too. Getting off-site for some pictures is always a good call, so being in a location guaranteed to rack up all the likes is key.

Play Picks rounded up the most Instagrammable locations in the United States, and the results are pretty on par with some of the country's most iconic locations that double as cute places to celebrate your love.

Princess brides, the first two locations are for you. The most hashtagged location in the U.S. is Disneyland in Anaheim, California, with more than 19 million posts shared using that location. That number is a standout as the number-two location—Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World—has only 9 million posts.

While a Disney location might only be fit for a whimsical bride’s proposal or big day, there are plenty of other popular spots on the list that might be just your style. Unsurprisingly, Miami Beach and New York’s Central Park come in the third and fourth spots. Who wouldn’t want to bring their #girlgang to Miami for a bachelorette beach weekend, or get engaged in Central Park, a.k.a. the most popular place to pop the question?

The rest of the list includes the Grand Canyon (perfect for a desert wedding), colorful Key West, and Myrtle Beach, but more than half of the top 20 most Instagram-worthy locations in the U.S. are in California.

The state boasts a variety of landscapes meaning that every bride, no matter her style, can find their perfect location in the Golden State. From the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the more rustic setting of Yosemite National Park to sunny SoCal spots like Laguna Beach, the options are endless.

If you host your destination wedding, bachelorette weekend or honeymoon getaway in any of these cities, brace yourself: You won’t be able to keep up with all the Instagram likes. Check out the complete list below:
