Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in Charlottesville

Thomas Jefferson (you know, the guy who wrote the Declaration of Independence) lived at this 5,000-acre plantation for most of his life. Host your rehearsal dinner in the Jefferson Library followed by dinner and dancing in the Jefferson visitor center or the main lawn.

The United Nations in New York City

Serve dinner in the delegates dining room of the UN (located in midtown Manhattan) where you'll find sweeping views of the New York City skyline and the Queensboro bridge.

The White House Rose Garden

The only teeny-tiny caveat: You can't get married here unless you're related to the president (like son or daughter). Historians estimate that there have been about 30 White House weddings, including 9 presidential children and 1 president (Grover Cleveland). The most recent was Tricia Nixon’s in 1971 -- she married Edward Cox in The White House Rose Garden.

Mount Rushmore in South Dakota

How's this for a photo op? Yep, you can actually apply for a special permit to exchange vows in front of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln (in rock form that is).

The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

Besides being home to the U.S. Constitution, the center is just two blocks away from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall (hello photo op!). You can rent the center for both ceremonies and receptions.

Tea Party Ships in Boston

Reach way back -- these ships are the site of one of the most historic political protests in American history -- and sure enough, you can get married on them!

The Lightner Farmhouse in Gettysburg

During the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, the Lightner Farmhouse was used as a Federal hospital for wounded soldiers. The bed and breakfast farmhouse is set on 19 acres of idyllic countryside -- perfect for an outdoor wedding.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
