Every bride and groom has their own way of approaching their wedding day. Some go big, some go small, some follow themes. But one place that is apparently becoming a popular locale among soon-to-be-married couples? Underwater!

The Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel in Florida is apparently now offering something called "the mermaid wedding package" for pairs who have always wanted to tie the knot while submerged in water. The entire ceremony takes place in the 8-foot-deep end of the hotel's pool, under the guidance of a "mermaid" officiate. And I thought getting married by an Elvis impersonator was weird…

The package, which launchee April 1, requires that the bride and groom take a lesson in aquatic training with the resident mermaid (that's a sentence I never thought I'd type). According to Yahoo! Shine, this helps teach the couple breath control and will allow them to choreograph the ceremony, which lasts about 10 minutes with the bride, groom, and mermaid all occasionally swimming upwards to catch their breath. Couples exchange rings, share a symbolic kiss (by blowing bubbles), exchange vows via waterproof signs and may even have a first dance--all under water. Can you imagine?!

So how does it compare cost-wise to more traditional weddings? The hotel charges $95 per guest and requires at least 30 guests, which means water-loving couples will have to shell out at least $2,850. Additional lessons with the mermaid trainer might also be required, for an extra fee.

Personally, I think this sound completely crazy. Wedding days are stressful and scary enough for the bride and groom, without having to worry about remembering to breathe a certain way underwater! Still, I have to admit, it does make for a very unique photo-op, as seen above.

Plus, it's far from the only weird way some couples have chosen to get married . Below, check out more unconventional weddings:
