When you think of weddings, you normally think of veils, flowers, smart suits and bouquets. If you let your imagination run a little wild, you might conceive of this ceremony taking place at an exotic location, such as a beach or a lake. However, would you ever dare to think of a wedding taking place at a bungee jumping site? Well, you would think this way if you ever considered getting married in an adventure wedding.
What is an adventure wedding? Instead of hosting your wedding ceremony and reception at the usual boring venues, like churches and halls, you transport the ceremony to a place where heart-stopping activities concurrently occur. After saying your “I dos”, you can partake in a range of activities that will leave both you, your new spouse, and your guests breathless with excitement.
These activities could be in line with anything that is considered to be “adventurous”, including skydiving, bungee jumping, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, white water rafting or scuba diving. Your adventure nuptials could even extend to slightly less death-defying activities such as a hot-air balloon rides, boating or casino visits.
Some of the best adventure weddings
Scuba Diving/underwater weddings
Going on a scuba diving adventure will ensure that you and your significant other have the option of visiting some of the most romantic and exotic destinations in the world, and undoubtedly, you won’t forget your wedding in a hurry. You could either get hitched on a boat and then scuba dive on your honeymoon, or experience a completely unique underwater wedding. How awesome would it be if you could get married in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef while surrounded by magnificent tropical fish? For the truly adventurous, you could even spend you honeymoon in an underwater hotel!
Skydiving/ Bungee jumping weddings
There isn’t much in this world that is more exhilarating than hurtling down to the ground at a rate of knots, as you give in to the power of gravity. You can opt to have the ceremony on the ground beforehand, or (if you’re even more daring) choose to commit the deed just before you jump from the plane. If you’re bungee jumping, you can say your vows just before you jump, and then bungee off the deck together united as husband and wife.
“Cavern” or “cave” weddings are increasing in popularity all the time. You probably wouldn’t think of an underground cave as an appropriate location for a wedding, but surprisingly, this venue can be lots of fun and full of adventure. You’ll also be impressed by the romantic intimacy that the cave setting evokes, and how the high chambers create an ideal atmospheric feel.
Las Vegas getaway weddings
For many years, Las Vegas has garnered a reputation for “quickie” weddings”, and if you undertook this route, it was considered a bit tacky. These days however, the tacky wedding is firmly a relic of the past. If you choose to get married in Vegas, you can have an elegant wedding at locations like “the Eiffel Tower” the “canals of Venice” or at a tropical resort. At any other sort of wedding, you might have been tempted to go online and play games at Euro Palace. With a Vegas wedding, you can experience all the delights of a real casino before or after the ceremony. While you’re there, you can also experience all the other entertainment features that Sin City has to offer.
Want your wedding to be like a fairytale? Well, you might think that you are in storybook tale if you decide to get married at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, USA. Disneyland offers a host of great wedding packages that you can take up, and includes the possibility of getting married at Cinderella’s Castle.
