I read A Grave Interest’s post Going to the Chapel….Cemetery Weddings recently. What an interesting concept!
I have a few pictures of graves from Bohemian National Cemetery in Chicago where you can see people sitting around on the grass. I have heard of my families picnicing around family graves prior to the 1950s. This was not a tradition passed down that we still do today.
I think a cemetery is a great place for a wedding. So many cemeteries are garden-like or have beautiful chapels on site. There are also many military statues and memorials which would make a nice backdrop for a military wedding.
What do you think? Would you get married in a cemetery? I would consider it!
