If you love adventure and loathe anything ordinary, one of these non-conventional, unforgettable wedding locations might be perfect for you.
On a Submarine:
If you’re taking the plunge, a submarine would certainly fit the theme. Hawaiian Island Weddings offers a submarine wedding package off the coast of Maui. Dive up to 150 feet under water, invite 20 guests and even bring a musician along for the ride.
In a Doughnut Shop:
A wedding is full of sweetness, but if you want to pour on even more sugar, head to VooDoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon to tie the knot surrounded by scrumptious baked goods. They’ll provide doughnuts to you and your guests, and you’ll even get to take home bride and groom voodoo dolls. Getting married will be the frosting on the … doughnut.
On a Desert Island:
You’ve always envisioned a private wedding in the company of only close friends and family. Well, it doesn’t get much more private than getting married on a desert island. Tranquility Cove Adventures of Prince Edward Island, Canada, created a wedding package for those who love seclusion. You, your sweetheart, an officiant, a photographer and your 12 guests will be the only inhabitants.
In an Igloo:
A wedding is an event you wish you could freeze in time. That might not be possible, but you can freeze your wedding venue. At the Alpiniglu village in Austria, exchange vows in a frozen-solid church in the shadow of the snow-capped Alps. Magical lighting and custom ice sculptures add to the enchantment.
On the Set of a Horror Movie:
Even though The Stanley Hotel of Colorado is better known to be the setting of several scary scenes in the movie The Shining, it also happens to be a lovely place to get married. Mountains, historic architecture and even a butterfly release create a surprisingly dreamy atmosphere for a wedding. But you might want to think twice before booking Room 237.

Chrissy Teigen is known for many things, specifically her cookbook Cravings.
The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more.
