Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida is a true underwater lodge. Guests must dive 21 feet below sea level and enter through a channel Pros and Cons of Eloping at the bottom of the hotel. Inside the house, there will be a wedding. It includes an entrance to the wet room, two bedrooms, and a communal living room. This is the common part of the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Imagine a honeymoon underwater. Lie on the bed and watch the fish through the window.

For the quirkiest wedding experience, try the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton, where you can hold your ceremony on the bridge of USS Enterprise 1701-D. The Minister will wear Starfleet to your wedding while playing space wedding music. Behind the scenes, it depends on the wedding package you choose. You can choose from one to three Star Trek characters for your wedding: Klingon, Ferengi, or Borg.
Depending on the size of your wedding, you can choose to host your wedding at Quark’s Bar or Captain’s Lounge. You can choose from a variety of welcome menus, but I’d go for the Romulan Warbird, a marinated chicken breast served with wild rice pilaf and seasonal vegetables. The wedding cake has the Star Trek logo on it.
