#1 Getting married on the Minnesota Lake shoreline. 

Ever heard of 10000 lakes in Minnesota? There are ten thousand ways to get married on the shoreline.

 Imagine taking your vows on the northern Minnesota shoreline of Lake Superior, enjoying the cold breeze or having your first dance while the winds sing you a rhythms. 

How about taking your vows in the boat at the middle of Lake Superior or even Lake MilleLacs? 

Whether summer or winter, the beautiful lake serenity does not disappoint. The blue sky, ocean blue background,calm and untroubled weather will definitely  bring the best out of your day.

 You can still choose to have your traditional wedding gown on,flowers,a cake ans champagne.

The photo shoot will be out of this world. The ocean blue background, the blue skies and it’s even more magnificent if it’s winter if you are a snow lover. 

How about fishing on lake Mille lacs just before or after you sign the papers or having to spend your first night in the cabins or taking your commitment vows at the middle of the lake while boat riding?

#2 Museum wedding

Love and science or love and arts. 

This screams elegance, history, chemistry, arts and many more. However, we are unique when it comes to interests. If you are more of a science guy then science and love fits you best, otherwise arts and theatre is your thing. 

Minnesota tops the world with the best museums like the St Paul science museum, historic fort smelling and marine art museum to name just a few. You only need to make arrangements in time, get your license in time and contact the museum officials for a reservation.  Museum lovers have a variety to choose from across Minnesota. 

Marrying is a one-time event and you deserve the best on your special day. Do not hold back what matters to you. 

A photo session, a cake and some wine in the company of some other museum lovers or spectators will go a long way for fun. Generosity is a virtue, share the joy.

Incorporating live theatre for a movie after getting married is a heart blowing idea, a love movie will do just fine. 

#3 Golf Wedding

.If you and your partner are golf lovers then there is no better way to get married than in a golf course, if you golf then it only means you must be a member of some club. The beautiful trees and the greens of the golf area

incorporated with the right decor and sit arrangement that will fit your few guests and flowers (the green will do well with white, yellow or red roses) will bring out the best of nature.

A golf wedding cake and champagne is all you need now and you will be on top of your game. You can never go wrong with this outdoors, you are sure to say “I do” in style.
Minnesota is home to the best golf clubs, a few of the best Minnesota golf course clubs are Olympic hills, Minneapolis golf club and stone Brooke golf club. However, there are so many you can choose from or probably just get married to a club that you are a member of.

#4 Biker wedding

The grand rounds scenic byway, cannon valley trail and root river state, Luce line state trail and Minnesota north woods are among the best bike rides in Minnesota.

Biking is fun outdoor sporting, city hiking and biking, whether you are doing it on trailed pavements or mountain biking, you can do all year round in Minnesota.

The best Part is you have a variety of choices, you may decide to bike in your traditional dress (the ordinals white gown) or some casual wear depending on the season of the year and your style and interest, make sure your guest shares the fun.

Getting married is the real deal (taking the vows and signing the papers). You may choose to take your vows in the pines or at the top of some mountains, you just gotta make your priorities, work with what works best for you both.

Having good company is on your special day helps you relax, you might want to invite a few guests to cycle with you, it’s a good gesture.
A motorcycle biker wedding cake will definitely be worth the event.
Whether you choose to bike on a bicycle or a motorcycle the fun is out of this world.
Make the best out of the biking but make sure not to overshadow the main event.

Remember the most important agenda of the day is getting married and not biking.

#5 Snowshoeing wedding

Winter weddings have always been magical, nothing beats the fun of snowshoeing on your special day.

Snowshoeing on its own is fun and the joy of officiating a matrimony is at its best while we do what we love..
A good photographer will do justice to the event, red wine and a black forest cake is all you need once you have signed the papers.
