Everyone likes to put a personal touch to the happiest day of their life (so far). Conventionally, the most important decisions to make are regarding the flower arrangement, the bridesmaid’s dresses and the color scheme – to name just a few. But some people go to great lengths to make their wedding extra unique and memorable… Here are just 5 of the strangest wedding ideas and themes; weird, wonderful and controversial.
The Naked Wedding
Yep, that’s right, a couple decided to reject social norms and ditch the physical barrier between themselves and the natural elements. They decided to just wear nothing at all!
After winning a radio competition which gifted them this free wedding, Mel and Rene Schachner were required to tie the knot in nothing other than their very own birthday suits.
And they’re not the only ones! The au naturel look is very in vogue. Whether or not you’d personally choose to ditch the traditional attire, it certainly makes for a very memorable wedding.
Shrek Is Love Shrek Is Life
We’ve all heard of the story of the adorable Ogre who gets the girl and lives ‘happily ever after’ melting hearts across the globe.
One couple decided that to mark their love, they would don heavy green make-up and have a Shrek-themed wedding to symbolize their journey.
But their eye-catching efforts weren’t just a fancy display for publicity, it was in order to raise awareness for cancer.
We hope that Nathan and Amanda get the happily ever after that they dream of.
I Did Nazi That Coming…
Apparently, there’s a strange trend across Asia where many young Chinese couples decide to wed in Nazi Military Uniform… Perhaps they missed the memo about the truly horrific things that occurred in Nazi Germany; it certainly didn’t impress Netizens of China.
On April 20, 2007 in New Orleans, PiercedSmurf decided to wed his long-term girlfriend hanging from his and her piercings…
They wanted the occasion to showcase their love for one another as well as sharing their passion for body modification. Let’s just hope they didn’t leave each other hanging much longer!
Big Labels Small Prices
Members of the public had to weave their little red trolleys around the size 8 shoe isle at the Mt. Pleasant TJ Maxx store on a July morning in 2012, when Drew Ellis and Lisa Satayut married in front of a small crowd of close friends and relatives. Described as her ‘happy place’, Satayut said that she ‘never once even looked at the shoes’ during the ceremony and that it was ‘perfect’.
It’s certainly an unconventional place to get married!
