    Do you like the idea of having Weddings in Funeral Homes?

    I read about this online. I know it's good to budget, but not in this way....  Also, I think it will not bring good karma to a Marriage.
    Any thoughts?

      This choice of location could represent a funeral for the loneliness felt while single. It could also be a subconscious statement of how one or both really feels about marriage… Personally, I would opt for a Victorian style Las Vegas wedding. That would be a blast!

      Cheers xx

      Too creepy for me - wonder if there was another reason besides saving money -did the article say? A wedding in your own home or one of a relative or friend would do well - I think having one in a funeral home would make me feel haunted, always - not good.

    I'm sorry that's just creepy. You can have a wedding at your house and still not fork out big money. And I agree, would you really want to remember being married in a funeral home?

    Yeah... I think that would just be too much bad luck right there.

    Are outside/private home weddings too expensive? I hardly think a funeral home could be your only option!

    That is taking saving a buck too far for my sensibilities. A wedding at home, like has been suggested, should do the trick even more cheaply. I think this couple just has a macabre sense of humor. It might be all right on Halloween if you are really in to that sort of humor. I suppose some are. That is too cool for me.

    The question is the same when someone will ask, do you mourn your dead in the dancing hall? If it is the only space in in this planet, well I have no choice but to agree. But I don't think we are running out of space.

    The wedding is supposed to be a happy occasion, the venue has something to do with it.
    But if the couple choose to do their wedding in the funeral then it is up to them, it is their choice. For me it is nightmare lol!

    ..that's funny...the funeral homes i've seen can be quite ornate, etc. etc....but they all have that feeling of death about them...a bit too quiet and peaceful for a marriage...

    It just seems so wrong on so many levels. I vote for the house or a community center.

    I guess I must be old fashion, to get married and have a wedding is something special to me.  A wedding should represent a new life beginning between to people. A funeral home is the place to celebrate the end of life. It seems to me, it would be sending mixes signals into the universe that my hinder a new life beginning.

    As a wedding is supposed to be the start of a magical journey and the funeral home is the end of one, I can only see wedding's that start in funeral home's ending in divorce.

    I would not recommend having a wedding in a funeral home!  Your  wedding should be a Joyous, Uplifting, Inspiring  Celebration of new beginnings and  hopefully a long life together… Having what should be one of your most memorable Celebrations in a place where one  is  usually sad, the ambiance is one of mourning and says their final goodbyes dampers the elation of becoming a couple…

    People do all kinds of theme weddings. If you're doing a Halloween wedding (and I've seen them on TV) then a funeral parlor would be perfect.

    If those funeral parlors are clever and enterprising, they will promote themselves as good sites for a DIVORCE party, tho!

    Thanks for all your responses everyone. Interesting views. I wouldn't even attend a wedding in a funeral home, let alone have one there.

    If it's all about saving money, people can have the wedding at home like Alecia Murphy stated or even a Community Centre as Xenonlit Stated.

    Have a great week. smile

    Fantastic and catchy question Lady E - never heard of this before but I reckon death is hanging over everything so it makes us more real and that's what you're supposed to be on a wedding day!

      Hi Psychicdog.net

      I was going to post the link but if you search google you will see a lot of articles about funeral homes catering for  weddings. Cheers. smile

    This is so creepy....but as all good thrillers go I guess if a couple died and were in the funeral home their ghosts could get married on the spot as long as they found a ghostly priest.

    Otherwise I wouldn't attend anything in a funeral home.

    Probably more appropriate to have the wedding ceremony at a jewelry store...

    that way right after the vows are exchanged, the man's testicles can be removed and made into a necklace for the bride to wear around her neck
