Wedding planning: most unusual wedding venues
If romantic comedies and pop culture have taught us anything (have you heard of Say Yes to the Dress?), it’s that wedding planning can be the most fun, yet most expensive and stressful time of your life. With an ever-growing to-do list, people to please and, many times, a tight budget, it can be hard to fulfill all your wishes while trying your best to stay sane. So what if you just threw sanity out of the window and went for the craziest, most unusual wedding venue ever? You are not alone! Here are some of the wildest wedding venues of 2019.
Unusual wedding venues: saying “I do” at a winery
If you and your honey love wine, why not get married at a winery?! This unique, fun venue idea will provide your guests with the most picture-worthy views and make sure they always have something to drink. Just keep in mind that the average wedding cost at a vineyard is estimated at between $15,585 and $28,814 for a ceremony and reception for 100 guests, so start saving before you say cheers!
Unusual wedding venues: the sky! Need we say more?
As you can imagine, this increasingly popular “venue” is definitely not for you if you’re looking for something simple and private. However, those who want to make a difference and get married closer to the stars definitely can! Did you know that in January of 2018 Pope Francis married a couple on an airplane in Chile? Not only unique,but also completely unforgettable!
If you’re thinking about an airplane ceremony, remember to do research on legalities, logistics and whether your airline is going to be okay with it. This article shares that “having a wedding ceremony in the air over a state in the U.S. is possible and legal—but it’s not easy. If there’s ever a question as to where the wedding took place (and your answer is “on a plane”), you risk a state or country not recognizing your union.”
Unusual wedding venues: getting married in a cave
If you’re looking for a cool place for your loved ones and guests to celebrate your new life as a married person, a cave is definitely the place to go. As unusual as this can be, with the right lighting and decorations, a cave can be as romantic as you’ve always imagined.
A wonderful place to consider is Desoto Caverns in Childersburg, Alabama. The Venue Report shared that “this state park will help you organize catering, transportation and all the logistics. Exchange vows in the breathtaking cavern and host a reception in the covered pavilion.”
Unusual wedding venues: a fairytale wedding in a castle
Can you imagine fulfilling all your Disney prince/princess fantasies and saying yes to your soulmate in a castle? Even though it might not be cheap, this is completely doable. A favorite for future husband and wives is the beautiful Iolani Palace in Honolulu, Hawai. This magical location was the official residence of Hawaii’s monarchy until 1893, and it can be yours for the day starting at $1,300.

Unusual wedding venues: treehouse wedding
If climbing trees and playing at the treehouse were your favorite things to do growing up, getting married at a treehouse probably sounds like a dream come true … but it doesn’t have to be just a dream! A treehouse will bring that natural, rustic look you are looking for while also keeping things playful and completely out of the ordinary. Anywhere from Sweden to Atlanta, Georgia, lovebirds definitely won’t have trouble finding the perfect tree to say yes forever.
Unusual wedding venues: life can be a roller coaster … and so can your wedding
Can you imagine the adrenaline of getting married on a roller coaster? Quite possibly the most thrilling experience ever, but definitely not for the faint of heart, so if getting married on a roller coaster is something you’re considering, make sure to ask your significant other if they’re afraid of heights.
