  1. At a zoo: A zoo makes for a wild wedding venue – especially if you can steal a kiss from one of the residents. Many zoos rent out their facilities for wedding events. Call your community zoo for more information.

  1. At an aquarium: You, your groom, your guests, 2,000 fish, and 500,000 gallons of water. There’s no need for fancy decor when you exchange vows surrounded by tropical fish at an aquarium.

  1. At an amusement park: Not just for the kids, but for the kids at heart. Why not make the most of your fun personality by celebrating your union at a theme or amusement park? Small amusement parks usually offer group wedding venue rates. Bigger parks, like Disney, offer wedding packages complete with all the details.

  1. On a mountain: Imagine magical mountain views when you, your beau, and your guests ride the ski lift to the top of the mountain to exchange vows. When your “I Do’s” are complete, simply ski down to your cozy mountain lodge reception to celebrate fireside.
