What Are Some of The Most Exotic Wedding Locations in The World?
You’re walking up the aisle at your lovely wedding only to be interrupted by an angry, chest-thumping chimpanzee who didn’t receive a wedding invitation. The minister is hollering at the top of his lungs over the roaring of a curious and a rather hungry lion, asking if you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband. The cute, little ring bearer goes sprinting in hysterical panic for cover, screaming wildly about the nearby gorilla with the serious glare.
For some unfathomable reason, you decided you wanted to hold an exotic wedding (in a jungle setting) only to discover some unusual and sometimes fearsome wedding crashers: the mocking toucan, the contrarian kookaburra, the rowdy hippo and the menacing leopard.
While we at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club specialize in the more traditional style of beautiful weddings – absent the wild animals – we respect those with a yearning for the exotic.
Unusual Wedding Locations Are For Brave of Heart
Here are some of most exotic wedding locations in the world to hold your wedding from USA Today:
- The French Polynesian island of Bora Bora gives nuptials the opportunity to hold their exotic wedding as Tahitians dance and sing and as a Tahitian priest performs the vows. Grooms are brought to the island’s beach in a canoe to meet the bride. Both ride the canoe after the ceremony with musicians and paddlers.
- The Zanzibar island is along Tanzania’s coast of the Indian Ocean. The architecture of Stonetown, the island’s main town, mixes Omani, Indian and African buildings in a narrow cluster of winding alleyways. Barazas, an ancient stone bench, surrounds carved wooden doors. A nightly outdoor fish barbecue is held at the harbor where fresh sugar cane juice is made by hand.
- Vietnam hosts affordable weddings in luxury junk boats through limestone formations of Ha Long Bay. Vietnam mythology purports the formations were formed by the gods during Vietnam’s war with the Chinese; dragons, spitting jade were loosed against the Chinese invaders. The jade formed the barrier protecting the Vietnamese. The dragons’ mother was named Ha Long.
- Hawaii’s archipelago on the Molokai island offers lovebirds a traditional – and exotic – setting absent the traffic (and traffic lights), the malls and the busyness of more populated areas. The Molokai holds the largest barrier reef in the archipelago, making it ideal for swimming in warm, tropical waters. The island’s population is about 10,000.
