Unusual places to get married
Going Goth at a cemetery would be an unusual wedding choice. (path in a cemetary image by Xavier MARCHANT from Fotolia.com)

Whether you just want to stand out from the crowd or hold a wedding that reflects your shared offbeat interest, choosing an unusual place to get married will begin the process. Select a location based on an activity you both enjoy or cater to your inner child with your location choice. But whatever location you do eventually decide upon, remember that your guests may not share the "fun" of the idea.

Shared Activity

You can get hitched--figuratively and literally--and conduct your wedding bungee jumping off a bridge or getting married on the golf course, where the reception area is already built in. You might get married on the stage of a dance club you frequent or the dance studio where the two of you met taking lessons. Perhaps you would prefer to be married on a sailing yacht with the captain officiating, or on the beach where you surf daily. Another option is getting married on the top of a plane, for flight enthusiasts, or at an undersea hotel, for scuba divers.

Inner Child

Scheduling your nighttime wedding on All Hallow's Eve in the middle of the cemetery and indulge the ghoulish passion in both of you. The bride can wear a long flowing black Gothic dress with wedding veil and the groom a sinister-looking cloak as the couple step between the stones to say "I do" before returning to your reception caskets and reception at a funeral parlour. Or, you can indulge the diva princess in you as you tie the knot at the Princess Castle of Disneyland. The bride can wear a sparkly white gown, glass slippers and crown and the groom princely garb, before beginning a reception that has you meandering the park enjoying the rides and attractions.


History buffs can plan a "Civil War" wedding and get married in period clothes at an old Southern plantation, with the grooms in Confederate uniforms to complete the setting. Perhaps an observatory is more your style with a silvery gown, black tie and the twinkling stars as your sole decorations. Chinatown, with its colourful lanterns, makes an unusual wedding location as does a museum after hours, the local MacDonalds or Taco Bell, or even your office building. Or, you can "return" to medieval times and become man and wife in a ceremony at a Renaissance fair.
