Bride; would she have her wedding in a funeral home?

For many of us, the nicest place we'll ever spend a night is the funeral home where our friends and family pay their last respects. In an era where cremation continues to eat into the funeral home business, it's no surprise that purveyors are looking for ways to leverage their beautiful properties to increase cash flow. One surprising way? Host a wedding.

If you can get past the thought of what might be in the basement cooler, you're usually looking at a facility completely equipped for the festivities, a facility with lovely decor, great parking and plenty of mingling room.
