Looking to save money on a bridal gown? Here’s the ultimate money-saving tip when it comes to dresses: Don’t wear one! Nudists everywhere are jumping on the nudist wedding bandwagon, and just think how much money they’re saving on clothing!
With 50,000 members of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR), nude weddings are a natural extension of these people’s way of life. Like Pamela and Lee, who wedded in the nude while 600 guests (only 12 of which were fully clothed) watched. “It’s so natural, it’s so unpretentious.” Can’t argue with that.
Lest you think a nudist life is sexually-oriented, let’s set the record straight. “Couples who get married in the nude are closer to God, the universe, divine energy,” said Rev. Jo Ann Pessagno, a minister who has presided over 80 nude weddings, including Pamela and Lee’s.
Mark and Cindy, also had a nude wedding and regret that their families did not attend. “My mom is just too old fashioned to understand,” said Mark. Apparently, for some people being naked is more important than their family.
For those who believe that “it’s not a sexual thing, it’s a spiritual thing,” nothing could be more “honest” and “transparent” than being wed in the nude. And according to Lee, that’s the right way to do it. “God keeps sending us naked people, but we keep sending him people that are all dressed. One of these days we’ll get it.”
