If you’re engaged, you’ll know the most common question after, “Can I see the ring?” is “So have you planned the wedding?” For many couples, a wedding is a traditional affair: whether it is in a church or outdoors, white weddings certainly seem to be the norm. But what’s a guy and gal to do if traditional isn’t their thing? What are some unique ways to get married for couples who don’t mind eschewing tradition? We’ve come up with a list of ideas to get you started!
1. Helicopter Ride Around New York – If you’re an aviation fan, a New York aficionado, or simply looking for a private, unique and romantic way to tie the knot, doing it during a helicopter ride around New York may be just the thing! Given the tight quarters inside a helicopter, there won’t be room for many guests, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be an awesome celebration. Taking in the sweeping vistas of some of the most well known buildings in the world and saying “I do” while on a helicopter ride around New York is one of the most romantic and unique ways to start your marriage.
2. Skydiving – This option certainly isn’t for the feint of heart, but if you want to be in the air and a helicopter ride around New York isn’t daring enough for you, then you could consider saying “I do” just before freefalling from an airplane! Finding witnesses and an officiant may be a bit more challenging, but certainly not impossible. Just be sure to choose your wedding attire with jumping out of a plane in mind!
3. Underwater Nuptials – If you and your betrothed love the sea and delight in spending time diving or snorkelling, an underwater wedding may be for you. While flying to a tropical location and strapping on oxygen tanks isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it is a great way to express your love of the open water and each other!
4. Heli-skiing – If the idea of a helicopter intrigues you, but you want something more active than a helicopter ride around New York, why not go heli-skiing for your wedding? You can get married in the helicopter and then cut fresh tracks in knee-deep powder to celebrate!
There you have it: from an underwater wedding to a helicopter ride around New York, the possibilities for your upcoming wedding are as deep as your imagination! Tell us in the comments: which adventurous wedding would you choose?
