Black Rock City, Nev.
If you and your beloved are already dedicated "Burners," one of those souls who trek to the Nevada desert every summer for a week of radical self-expression, why not make your wedding a part of your favorite festival? It will surely be a wedding like none other. You can ask around to locate a wedding officiant who’s planning to attend, or have a friend ordained at the Universal Life Church Web site — it’s free and takes only minutes. In Nevada, there are no legal requirements for what you do or say at your wedding, so let your imagination run free. You can make up your own rituals or have your friends plan the party for you. A word of warning: if the two of you show up in white satin and a tux, observers may think you’re doing performance art rather than taking sacred vows. At Burning Man, the unusual is usual.
