If a big, white wedding isn’t for you, why not have your wedding somewhere just that little bit different?
How about getting married in a cave or saying your vows atop a rollercoaster? Here are six unusual wedding destinations from wedding planners MarryAbroad.
1. In a gold mine
Eldorado Ghost Town is a deserted town in Nevada, where the ceremonies can take place inside the existing gold mine or outside surrounded by antiques and desert scenery.
2. Get spooked
Halloween fans can opt for a one-of-a-kind experience, as they wed in Niagara, Canada, alongside guest of honour Jack Skellington – a character from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. The wedding officiant, also in a ghostly costume, pronounces the couple ‘Ghouly-weds’.
3. Inside a cave
Deep down under a hotel in Dubrovnik, Croatia, marine-loving couples can have their wedding in a cave, with a glass floor overlooking the ocean. Significantly, the name of the resort is More, which translates to ‘Hotel Sea’.
4. Flying high
Cartoon fans can marry inside one of the largest helium hot-air balloons in the world at Walt Disney World in Florida, with stunning views of all four Disney parks and the surrounding area.
5. Back of the net!
Football fans can give a kick-start to married life at Camp Nou, home to soccer giants Barcelona. There’s loads of football-related photo opportunities on offer, from goalie shots to trophy photos. And hopefully it won’t mean that your marriage will end Messi-ly!
6. On a rollercoaster
You’ll need a strong stomach, but how about getting married on the rollercoaster that zooms around the outside of the New York New York casino on the Las Vegas Strip? Hurtling around at up to 67mph, thrill-seekers say ‘I do’ in a NYC taxi cab-themed carriage, as the coaster lifts them up 203ft and down 144ft, with views of the glittering Vegas Strip.
