5 of the Strangest Places to Get Married
Your wedding is your day to really let personal tastes and personality shine. While many opt for an interesting choice on cake, or even some fun decor sometimes that just isn’t enough. At times a personality may need a bit more to really show through. For those couples, they may want to look into more extreme choices of venue to hold their own ceremony, below is a look at just some of those choices.

On June 6, 2010, April Pignataro and Michael Curry joined their lives together in wedded bliss. While it’s a happy occasion, it wouldn’t even be known about by the public at large if it weren’t for the location. They took their vows in a shark cage, surrounded by nurse sharks and sand sharks!! Don’t worry they are two non-aggressive types of the toothy species.
The expert divers wed in two custom-made scuba suits, white for the bride and black for the groom. They used special devices to help them breathe and talk (after all, no matter where you get hitched- the vows are typically important!)

More known for the discounted offerings than their romantic atmosphere, there are a surprising number of people who seem to find the store the best place for their wedding. What it may lack in a typical venue, admittedly it can potentially make up for in convenience, as you can grab cake and favors right after your trip down the aisle.
If you and your beau are the more extreme type, a skydiving wedding may be for you. Those with more extreme tastes and a thirst for adrenaline may enjoy saying their vows while they free fall towards the ground. Some companies even cater to those who may want to consider a skydiving wedding, for them you can check out the Atlanta Skydiving Center, as for the rest of us? We will be happily planted with two feet on the ground.

Any marriage will have it’s ups and downs, and an interesting (and not as scary as the skydiving wedding above) way to really signify them, and the ability to overcome them is your very own roller coaster wedding. The above couple Gaynor Cooper, 32, and Karl Anderson, 28, said their vows at the top of the roller coaster, on Friday the 13th (for the curious, yes that is a SAW logo).
Quebec’s Hôtel de Glace
While Quebec’s Hôtel de Glace may not be as dangerous or thrilling as the other entries, it however is very beautiful and unique. It’s a hotel made entirely out of ice, built every year when the weather is suitable and melting as the season warms up. The Hôtel de Glace is both a unique place to get married and offers a chilly but stunning view.
While sure, some of the above locations are a bit out there they do seem fun. No matter how exciting a wedding is, the most important part is the couple themselves. Most wouldn’t choose a thrilling rollercoaster, but thinking outside the box a bit is a creative way (if nothing else) to make a wedding really stand apart!! What would you do to be different?
