Is it strange to have a wedding at a zoo?

I have never been to a wedding at a zoo, but I have been to several corporate events held at our zoo, and they have been huge hits! I would be so excited to go to a wedding at a zoo, but I’d probably appreciate a more relaxed dress code as there is generally a TON of walking involved.

@skuzzlebutt:  My zoo wedding included tram transportation from space to space to little to no walking was required. I think this is pretty standard for weddings at zoos as they know there will be guests in shoes/outfits not meant for walking tours.

I would LOVE to attend a wedding at a zoo. 

Our local zoo hosts an annual black-tie event on the grounds, and it is always well-received. Zoos can be formal and beautiful!

@somathemagical:  The zoos around here don’t have much transportation options for guests, only those sort of airport cars for people with mobility issues/emergencies, but there wouldn’t be nearly enough to transport wedding guests without it taking hours just moving people back and forth.

Sounds awesome! We love our zoo and have had season’s passes since we became parents. They have a wonderful conservation program and educational camps for little ones. I looked into having our wedding at the zoo but it was too expensive at the time. If this is something that you want to do, stick to your guns!

I think a zoo wedding is fantastic!! Super fun and unique, and the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park are both AZA accredited. It sounds amazing!

@beach_lover89:  The San Diego Zoo has beautiful weddings! Regarding your guest’s reactons, it’s your day! You plan your wedding the way you envisioned it. Regarding your parents(if they are paying for your special day), send them the zoo’s wedding website! It shows them that the zoo orchestrates classy weddings!

I’ve definitely heard of people having weddings at a zoo before.  And San Diego zoo is so nice.

@beach_lover89:  I’ve never heard of a zoo wedding but here in Georgia, aquarium weddings are popular. I say go for it!
