10 Unique Places to Say I Do

Deciding where to get married is a huge decision. There are all kinds of questions to address. Formal or casual? Big or small? Indoors or out? What kind of couple are you? Kitschy? Cool? Glam? Traditional? What kind of photos are you hoping for? Clever? Classic? Surreal? How many guests will you have? What kind of budget are you working with? How important is choosing your own caterer? Open bar? Dance floor? You get the idea.
