Brides aren't Duty Free though

Getting married in the near future? Unsure of where to hold the ceremony? Want to make the event extra special and romantic? Want to do more than buy magazines and duty free liquor at an airport?

Well you're in luck, my friends. Amsterdam's Schipol airport has found an excellent way to combine two very related items: Marriage and Plane Travel. The most ingenious invention since Nuts and Gum (together at last).

Yes, that's right, now instead of just milling around the airport and waiting to pass time, or frantically try to hide all traces of leftover marijuana and magic mushrooms, you can get married. Why didn't someone think of this sooner?

This is perfect for someone who is only getting married for the honeymoon. Just think, you won't even have to bother with a fancy ceremony. Like the website says, you can just say "I do" and go!

I can only imagine the amount of drugged up, porned-out people flooding into Amesterdam's airport and saying, "Hey, you know what would be crazy?"

What I would really like to know is, how come Vegas didn't think of this first?

Kind of gives new meaning to the term.

Cripes, a Dutch Wedding at Schipol. Makes one wonder at what point the deal is consummated.

They could offer more types of wedding than those shown:

The Windmill, for couples who go around and around.

The Clog, for those who are poor and live in a shoe.

The Hooker in a Window, for those who like playing games.

Sorry, Lusty.

I had all kinds of things thought out to say and then Wombat's comment threw me off track. I hate it when that happens...

I do remember that I was thinking the entire thing about Vegas, but perhaps Nevada was worried about the repercussions of too many prostitutes getting married? Where would that trade go then?

An eloper's dream.

I think we should devalue the concept of marriage further still by having a minister on standby outside popular nightclubs at 3am on a Friday night (or Sat morning even).

All that planning I've been doing, now to find out that I never had too... sigh
