Brace yourselves: Mass weddings are coming!
June has been the “wedding month” since 2,000 years ago when the early Romans celebrated marriage festival in honor of Juno, the goddess of marriage and wife of Jupiter, every June 1st. Weeks later, the “honeymoon” (technically the first moon after summer solstice) was celebrated on June 21. Yep, it’s not just a term invented for post-wedding lovemaking.
We know you're often like "Zzzz…" to history, so we found you something more fun to help us discuss wedding month. Check out the amazingly odd weddings we've gathered below! These couples didn't want to go the "church-reception-inuman-lambingan" route. They said YOLO and just went with what they wanted, no matter how goofy they looked.
So, if you want a truly unforgettable wedding, here are some inspirations:
1) The Falling Wedding
We all want to keep on “falling” for our partners, but this couple took it too literally.

In case you suddenly change your mind, no need to run away; just don't open the parachute. (She'd kill you anyway, right?)
2) The Jaws Wedding
Imagine saying “I do” while being surrounded by the most dangerous sharks. At least there’s no way anyone can back out (evil laugh).
We wonder how they managed to kiss, though…
3) The Pierced Hanging Wedding
We present: The winner of the Weirdest Wedding Award! Even the most hardcore emo has a romantic side too, you know!

We just wonder how come they didn't convince their priestess to do the same. #killjoy
4) The Nintendo Wedding
The bride, Nene Anegasaki, was perfect--pretty, smart, nice, and doesn't pick fights--except that she happened to be inside the groom's Nintendo DS. Nevertheless, their wedding was watched by millions of people online!

Oh look, he even posted their honeymoon photo! How sweet!
5) The Top-Of-The-Airplane Wedding
This one puts the skydiving wedding to shame! The couple and the officiating priest were tied to the wing of an airplane speeding at 2,000 feet high... Impossible? Check out their wedding video:
Don't you just like cool priests—especially when they're like "F*ck it, let's do that stupid thing you wanna do!"
