We're told that we should look forward to our 'big day' from our childhood to the day we walk down the aisle, but the reality is- weddings aren't really everyone's cup of tea.

While the idea of the dress, the church and the fancy car might be perfect for some people, others want a special day more suited to them.

These couples are super rad and have made their weddings live up to their everyday adventurous ways!

Are you a wedding cynic? We promise, by the end of this article you'll see that tying the knot doesn't have to be lame...
