In December 2014, an American couple said “I do” in an unlikely location: the frozen food aisle of Costco in California.

The choice of venue held a very important significance for Robert and Meredith Bonilla, who met one year ago in that very aisle while shopping, according to news outlet Huffington Post. On the wedding day, the aisle was lined with poinsettias and the couple exchanged vows while standing on wooden pallets.

Costco, it seems, isn’t only untraditional venue for romantic gestures in the U.S.. In September 2013, a man used a flash mob to propose to his boyfriend in Home Depot while one couple tied the knot in the frame department at IKEA in June 2013 and another couple got married at Best Buy on Black Friday in 2009.

In Singapore, the country’s largest supermart NTUC FairPrice has become the location for pre-wedding photo shoots. According to local media reports, over 30 couples held their wedding shoots at FairPrice stores in 2013 – more than double compared to the previous year.
