Would You Say ‘I Do’ In a Funeral Home?


08.03.2015 Would You Say 'I Do' In A Funeral Home?

A new meaning to “‘Til Death Do Us Part”

Millennial couples are shaking up traditions and personalizing weddings in creative ways, from food trucks to unusual attire and pets as ring bearers, and I am loving the trend!

One newer idea is to host weddings in funeral homes. Built with a capacity for gatherings, funeral homes sometimes also have food and alcohol licenses that will allow outside catering, and may not yet carry the premium costs of venues dedicated to wedding celebrations. Some are historical landmarks, and many have immaculate grounds well-suited for ceremonies and photos.

While funeral home weddings definitely aren’t for everyone, many Clevelanders have tied the knot (or taken their engagement photos) in one of our local historic cemeteries, such as Riverside Cemetery or Lakeview Cemetery. If you’ve decided to host your ceremony in a funeral home, you may have to do a bit of hunting, though, as they aren’t usually listed in wedding venue directories

So what do you think, Cleveland? Would you say ‘I do’ in a funeral home or cemetery?

What do you think about funeral home weddings: cool or creepy?
