For most brides and grooms, deciding what to wear on the Big Day is one of the most important parts of wedding planning. But one New Zealand couple didn't have to shop for wedding outfits -- because they got married in the nude.

Nick and Wendy Lowe were married at the Wellington Naturist Club on Saturday in a "clothing optional" wedding, reported local newspaper The Dominion Post. About half of the 120 guests were nude. Both clothed and naked photos were taken, and though guests were asked to dress for dinner, the dancing portion of the event was clothing optional.

Nick encouraged Wendy to embrace the "naturism," or nudist, lifestyle six years ago.

"It was one of the first things he said to me: ‘I'm a naturist, how do you feel about it?' I knew at some point I'd have to at least try it," Wendy said.
