Weird wedding trend: Naked nuptials

Wedding gown too expensive? Try a birthday suit.

By Kristin Wong 4 hours ago

We can't help but notice that more and more couples are taking on an unconventional new wedding trend: tying the knot in the nude.

Yesterday we came across the story of Nick and Wendy Lowe. The couple married last week at New Zealand's Wellington Naturist Club, exchanging their vows completely unclothed. Over 120 guests attended the wedding, and only half of them were wearing clothes.

At the reception, both nude and clothed photographs were taken.

Last year, National Geographic's Taboo documented nine couples who were married in a mass nude wedding in Jamaica.

The resort, National Geographic reported, celebrated "sun, sand and nudity. Not your typical wedding venue."

The couples exchanged vows on Jamaica's Negril beach, wearing nothing but veils and bow ties. One bride described the experience:

"So many things run through your mind, you know. 'Oh my god, I should've started working out."

In a piece titled, "Nude Weddings: 5 Places To Tie The Knot In The Nude," the Huffington Post reported that many nude beaches in the United States are members of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR).

"The AANR says many of its clubs have played host to a number of weddings," Huffington Post reports. "The organization even has members who are ordained ministers to officiate weddings."

Nudist resort Terra Cotta Inn noticed an increase in clothing optional weddings, too. They explained the trend in a blog post:

"The growth of nude weddings is part of a larger trend in nude recreation, which is fast reaching record numbers."

China may be easing into the trend, too. The Xin'an Evening News reported that many young newlyweds are donning their birthday suits for their wedding photos.

"Some photo studios are just going too far. They allow young women to have their photos taken in bikinis or with nothing on at all," said one woman interviewed. "I hope the authorities will do something."

What do you think of the nude nuptials trend? Is it liberating, or just plain lewd?

I guess that's one way to cut wedding costs- no dress or tuxes to buy.
