Get married at a sewage plant

Brightwater sewage plant in King County, WA is advertising its availability for weddings. Which sounds a bit weird until you see that it's actually a nice location (well, nice enough; I suppose it depends on how picky one is), and comes at less than half the cost of comparable facilities. So I'd definitely consider it if I were planning a wedding. Why not? However, some people, such as the wedding planner in the video, seem outraged at the mere thought of it.

I'm envisioning a lot of brown colored dresses in the maid of honor and the others dresses.

Instead of a blushing bride she would be a flushing bride.

Gotta stop on the puns at just one .. butt it's not easy.

Of course the wedding planner is against it! She gets a percentage of the total cost -- anything which isn't outrageously overpriced cuts into her pocket money.

I'd be willing to bet it has less sewage exposure than most places! I read once about a blockage/backup at the ballroom of a hotel -- the greatest thing in the article was it saying the incident brought up to 100% the number of usual wedding venues in the county which had been flooded by raw sewage within the last ten years. I doubt that BrightWater would ever have that problem (such places are often over-engineered to prevent embarrassing problems).

Another problem is everyone at the reception is gonna get shi*-faced.

Not that I'd ever wish a wedding on anyone, but if you can't dodge it, why not go for the budget option with a difference. Plus you can save the money for the inevitable litigation. A no-brainer!

Our "dirty water punishment facility" is close but not free of smell. The wind goes right, and we get to enjoy it. They do have a lovely methane/hydrogen sulfide flame out front, which I think should be in the form of a dragon. They also have a garage door marked "shipping/receiving" that makes me wonder. I don't think we'll be having our wedding there.

Wow, what a shitty idea. If the wind is blowing the wrong way then urine trouble.

No big deal. My aunt and her brides maids were beinng dressed. Yup the kids were banished outside. We did scare away a skunk that had a jar stuck on his head.

Wedding is a sacred ceremony of two people. In such a manner we have different perspective about wedding and different venue to witness the exchanges of vows.
