Here’s one for those of you that feel your wedding day needs that extra bit of adventure.

8. Burning Man Festival, Nevada, USA

If you truly are an adventurous couple then Burning MAn Festival could be the exact location for you to tie the know. Infamous for its acceptance of all types of expression from the attendees. It does not book any acts and claims it is not a festival but a temporary city. It relies on the collaboration between those who come along to create the entertainment. If you want a truly adventurous location to get married, nothing could possibly fit that bill more than Burning Man.

Unique

9. Ice Hotel, Lapland, Sweden

When people think of wedding venues abroad, they often think of sun and sand, however, if the cold is more your thing then this is the place for you. They even construct an ice chapel for the actual ceremony to take place. One of the most unique ideas is that you know by the springtime the location you were married will literally have melted away. What could be more unique than that?
