Cemetery Weddings: Creepy or Romantic?

April 5, 2008 5:25pm CST
Recently in a wedding magazine, I read about a couple who decided to have their wedding ceremony in a cemetery. I've also read a couple articles about it elsewhere: it seems like cemeteries are becoming a bit of a trend, and not just in the gothic crowd. To me, the idea of a sunny, bright, green-grassy field, a nice old chapel, and old tombstones in a well-kept graveyard seems rather romantic. A late summer wedding, early afternoon, would be lovely in such a setting. I am not thinking of those kinds of weddings amongst the tomstones, but a bride in a white dress in a field or open grassy area within the cemetery, with a nice old church or chapel or gazebo type feature. It seems so romantic to me, surrounded by age and time, couples buried together, really gives a striking image to forever. I know many people would think it kind of creepy or morbid to have a wedding in a cemetery. What do you think?

I can see where your coming from, so long as there is a nice surrounding for the wedding i think it would be quite spiritual actually, I am one that believes in spitit guides and how we are watched over by these guides so i think it would be quite ok..

My uncle had his wedding and reception in a cementery. The chapel is small but the ceremony started at 4 or 5 pm, when we got out of the chapel, it's already dark outsid. The tables and chairs are set near tombs and with the decorations it kinda look like a park more than a cementery. We even had our pictures taken near the tombs though it's kinda creepy because it very dark. The tables are lighted with candle lights and the full moon.
