Attention men: your special lady’s wedding day is one of the most important moments of her life, so be her knight in shining armor and book a classy place for the ceremony.

For many ladies, the wedding day is the most significant experience of her life. It’s her day to have everything be exactly how she wants it; to be the center of attention. For this reason most weddings are held in aesthetically appealing places: ornate cathedrals, gorgeous seaside vistas, or exotic locales such as the Bahamas or Cyprus. But many couples opt to take the road less traveled, seeming to intentionally choose the worst possible location to be married. Take a break from mobile casino gambling
and take a look at some of the worst places to get married, as well as one of the best.

Drive-thru wedding chapel

The All-American institution of the drive-thru serves an important social function. Where else can one get $1 tacos at three in the morning? But it’s best that these venues specialize in greasy fast food and stay out of the marriage business.

• A lady’s wedding day is one of the most important days of her life, it is important to have it in an appropriate location

• Bad places to have a wedding ceremony: drive-thru wedding chapel, sewage treatment plant and strip club

• One of the world’s best wedding venues is the Genting Malaysia, feature stunning views of the Genting Highlands and ample leisure activities

America is all about fast and convenient service, but the insufferable tackiness of the drive-thru wedding defies all notions of civilization.

What drives people to do this? The ol’ elope in Las Vegas thing has become somewhat of an institution, and many do this just for the sheer weirdness of it. In addition to that, some chapels even serve food. There is an establishment in Olympia, Washington called Roadhouse Barbecue and Drive-Thru Wedding Chapel. As much as it pains me to admit this, I can sympathize. When you put everlasting love and delicious barbecue under one roof, who has the right to criticize?

Sewage dump

The Brightwater Community Center near Seattle, Washington is a fantastic place for a wedding. It features impeccably groomed gardens, a picturesque lake and ample indoor facilities. What’s not to like? The center is adjacent to a sewage treatment facility.

Sarcastic citizens have dubbed it “Wastewater Center” and one woman tweeted the following: “every girl’s dream to get married at a poop plant.” Such criticism is actually unfair, as the treatment facility uses special technology that contains the smell of sewage. However, I think that most brides wouldn’t like the idea of knowing that they are being married only a stone’s throw away from massive vats containing the city’s human waste. What better metaphor for a man and woman’s lifelong commitment to each other?

Strip club

Hordes of men love strip clubs, pouring into them at the end (or beginning) of a night of partying in order to be physically aroused by a professional dancer. Women, with some exceptions, hate them. So how about getting married in one? They have neon lights, ample seating, a well-stocked bar, even a full-service buffet. On top of that, there are professional security guards to make sure your wedding party is safe and sound. You can have the ceremony and reception in one convenient place.

Reasons not to get married at a strip club: there is a good chance that the groom will be distracted by certain female employees of the venue, and the ceremony will most likely be unintentionally attended by several unwholesome middle-aged men who almost certainly were not invited. I’m confident that among the billions of women on planet earth that there is at least one who is on board with the idea of getting married in a strip club. I’m even more confident that I will never meet her.

The best wedding venue

That rounds off our list of bad ideas. Let’s wrap things up with a good idea. Get married at the Genting Malaysia, an absolutely stunning casino located in the Genting Highlands 50 kilometers from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The natural beauty of the place is breathtaking, and the casino provides some of the best amenities around.

You can have a beautiful outdoor wedding before heading inside to hold the reception in the casino’s grand ballroom. Catering? The restaurant staff at the Genting make delectable local delicacies as well as delicious cuisine from around the world. No one will be disappointed. You can even make it a multi-day event, with you and your wedding party enjoying the Malaysian poker rooms
, golfing, hiking in the highlands, bowling or even bird watching. There is a reason that the Genting is hyped as one of the world’s finest casinos. Any woman would be thrilled to be married there.
