One of our favorite fellow pirates has wedding bells in her future, so we decided to do the right thing and come up with some helpful destination ideas for her big day. We thought we'd share what we found with our fellow pirates. We have searched the Seven Seas (of the internet) to find some incredible, awesome and just downright weird places you can say "I do!"
9. Skydiving Wedding
Las Vegas, Nevada
Hit the skies on your big day and start your lives together with a thrill that'll make most people's knees weak. Vegas Extreme Skydiving offers wedding packages that include everything you need—from a special "skydiving preacher" and champagne to a DVD video of your jump (that will hopefully last longer than your marriage). Say your vows and moments later you'll be headed to the ground at over 120 MPH.
8. Hot Air Balloon Wedding
Albuquerque, New Mexico
How about a wedding in the skies that's a little less intense? New Mexico's Rainbow Ryders offer hot air balloon wedding packages that allow you, your partner and two witnesses up in the air for your wedding vow ceremony. Check out the incredible sights below (we hope you're not afraid of heights) and start your lives together on cloud nine.
7. Drive Thru Elvis Wedding
Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas, Nevada is the wedding capital of the United States for a reason. Grab your beau and head to the world-famous A Little White Wedding Chapel for an experience with the King himself (or someone who looks a lot like him if you squint). Ride through on a vintage pink Cadillac, enjoy being serenaded by their in-house Elvis impersonator and ride off into the sunset with the one you love. There are packages available for every budget, so you can splurge or save on your big day.
6. Antique Store Wedding
Los Angeles, California
We're going to bet that an antique store isn't at the top of most people's dream wedding destinations list, but Big Daddy Antiques in Los Angeles offers everything you need to make your big day quirky and special. Get married surrounded by curiosities of the past and treat your guests to a dance floor with live music and a formal sit down dinner. It can definitely count as your "something old."
5. Treehouse Wedding
Fall City, Washington
Live out your childhood with a wedding in a treehouse. Treehouse Point in Washington offers a scenic backdrop for your big day, with lush greenery and the sounds of the nearby river. There are multiple treehouses to choose from, so you can find the perfect one for your big day.
4. Movie Set Wedding
Feel like a movie star on your special day with a wedding at the Paramount Pictures Studios. Your special day can take place within a number of the movie lots (how many people can say they've been married in the middle of a New York street?). We're sure these events are pricey, but you can bet no one else you know will be able to top a wedding here.
3. Denny's Wedding
Las Vegas, Nevada
The Denny's at Neonpolis in Las Vegas is the perfect place if you're looking to dine on some delicious pancakes, say your vows and have a drink. This Sin City location has a wedding chapel that's a funky place to say, "I do!" You'll be able to hit the Las Vegas Strip after the ceremony and start your life together at America's favorite diner.
2. Glacier Wedding
Imagine the wedding photos for your ceremony on top of a beautiful Alaskan glacier. Alaska Adventures Juneau offers multiple options for our explorers out there. We hope your wedding garments are warm enough for your big day, but we're sure your love for each other will help a little.
1. Doughnut Wedding
Portland, Oregon & More
How much do you love doughnuts? The world-famous Voodoo Doughnuts offers complete wedding packages are multiple locations around the country. You can have a small ceremony in their original Portland, Oregon location (and get special doughnuts made for the happy couple), or have a whole shindig in Eugene, Denver or Austin. It's the perfect place for the quirky couple.
