An American couple, Courtney McKenzie and her fiancé Jamil, are planning an exotic December wedding in Thailand complete with elephants, fireworks and dancers.

But, they aren’t going to pay for it. Instead, they are looking for corporate sponsors to fund their big day.

For fees between $500 and $5,000, the couple are willing to have company logos imprinted on the wedding dress, the groom’s tux and even an elephant they’ll be riding after the ceremony. On their website, they write: “We will be hashtagging, tweeting and instagramming our way through Thailand to our over 30,000 combined social media followers and we want to include some of our favorite brands on our adventure.

The couple plan to donate a percentage of the money to charity, but also have a goal of US$30,000.

McKenzie, an entrepreneur and digital media consultant, came up with the idea after deciding it would more adventurous than having a typical traditional wedding. She has now decided to set up a platform to help other brides follow her path and pay for their weddings with sponsorship.
