The moment you and your partner decide to get married is a happy one, whether you had an elaborate proposal or simply looked at each other and said, "yep, that's the one." But after the initial excitement dies down a bit, the whirlwind of planning begins. If the two of you want to go the traditional route and stick to a church or a courthouse, that's great. But if you're looking for something a little more out of the ordinary, there are plenty of options for every personality and every budget. These places you didn't know you could get married range from fast food restaurants to museums to haunted hotels, so there really is something for everybody.

Technically, you can get married wherever you can find a place to stand with both your partner and whoever is licensed to officiate the wedding, but if you want to include some friends and family, it's probably best to find a location that's actually prepared to host weddings so that you are sure to have access to bathrooms and food (plus plenty of room to dance, if you're into that).

Whether you decide to tie the knot surrounded by pandas at the zoo or say "I do" illuminated by the stadium lights at your hometown baseball park, here are some quirky options to check out.
