Getting Marrried AAirside at Dallas-Fort Worth

A Flyertalk member saw a wedding going on in a Dallas Admiral’s Club yesterday morning.

a group of about 10-20 people, including a woman in a wedding dress, the groom in a tux, an entourage [groomsmen, bridesmaids, and probably family], and what appeared to be a member of Clergy to officiate the ceremony quietly proceeded into one of the conference rooms

If folks are coming in from all over, and already airside, it could be a very convenient place for the BridesmAAids and the rest of the entourAAge to meet up. American’s clubs now serve complimentary cocktails, so they’d save on the reception. And the happy couple is certainly well-positioned to take off on their honeymoon!

But the best observation came from Flyertalk member ntamayo:

I can just picture the wedding registry announcement from their invites:

“We are registered at the Body Shop vending machine near gate C11 and the Official Dallas Cowboys Pro Shop in Terminals A, D, and E.”

Airport weddings are at least not unheard of, in fact Amsterdam’s Schipol airport specifically promotes them. And I’ve often thought that the old terminal at Washington National would be an outstanding venue.

  1. We tried to have our wedding in the old terminal at DCA and the airport would not allow it, regardless of the amount of money we offered. Like many other venues in the city, you have to be a non-profit or government entity to host a function there 🙁
