I’d like to begin this post with a disclaimer that there’s no need to worry, this blog will not be turining into a weddingpalooza-type journal. That said, my recent research on elopments and destination weddings has brought to light, some fantastically entertaining finds as well as phenomenally frighting facts. I mention the latter only to say that, the average American wedding costs $20,000 to produce. THAT’S MORE THAN I PUT DOWN ON MY HOUSE! Seriously. I think we’ll be passing on “average” and go more for “creative”. But I digress.
I mention the former (and please don’t confuse these with our actual plans which at this point, are vague at best), because to keep such information to myself would be utterly unfair.
For the frigid bride, there’s seemingly no better option than getting married in a frozen tundra! From January-April in Canada, a winter wedding at the Ice Hotel takes “having cold feet” to a whole new level!
For couples who are more Trek-y than trendy, it might be time to think of marraige as the final frontier. The Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas lets you have your Quark and eat it too! Wait, what?
For the groom who wants to take his wedding by storm (or by Storm Trooper, as it were), Star Wars themed nuptials are surely the answer! The bride is suspiciously missing from this picture, however. My guess? She’s at the bar, drinking away the droid.
If you have any elopement suggestions, silly or serious, I’d love to hear ’em! Afterall, the more the marry-er! 😉
