Even if you are dead set on the perfect destination wedding, I bet you are not putting as much effort into your search as this British couple. They are test-driving 30 unique wedding sites all over the world over a period of two years.
Soon after he proposed, they sold their house and most of their possessions, and set out to travel the world, sampling weddings. So far, weddings have ranged from a First Nation wedding up in Vancouver to casual nuptials on a rock in Honeymoon Pond in rural Michigan, to an elegant do sponsored by 24 wedding-related businesses. They were married on horseback in the Rockies and by a comedian in an airport terminal. And, when they’ve racked up 30 ceremonies (none of which are legally binding) they will pick their favorite to go back and get married again, this time for real.
I got married about a year and a half ago, and, when I look at all their weddings, do you know what I feel? Exhausted. Blog entry after entry goes off about finding flowers on short notice, or dealing with last minute hitches. (In the airport, for instance, security told them that press would not be welcome after they’d already invited them… awkward!)
My own wedding was awesome, but, I can certainly say that it’s something I never plan on doing again. How about you, readers? Would you go on a worldwide 30 wedding tour if you had the chance?
Hat tip to Gawker for finding the story.
