British newlyweds Lisa Gant and Alex Pelling loved getting married much that they're doing it again. And again. And again in every country the couple will visit during a two-year trip around the world (otherwise known as an epic honeymoon). According to their blog—which Lisa, 29, and Alex, 31, created to chronicle their adventures in international nuptial-making—the pair are currently somewhere along the western coast of Mexico, fresh off their latest (and 10th) vow exchange in Las Vegas.

Having sold most of their possessions and quit their jobs before setting out on June 6, 2011, Lisa and Alex plan to traverse 30 countries in all, incorporating local customs and décor into each wedding along the way. By the second year's end, the couple will return for a final ceremony in the locale they've deemed the best of their adventure—but they won't be alone.

As an incentive to follow the project, Lisa and Alex will fly one randomly selected commenter from their blog and a guest to join them (wherever that may be) in celebrating for the last time. Just hope, oh lucky commenter, that Lisa and Alex don't choose to revisit their ceremony in the sky. 'We're even planning to have a wedding onboard one of our flights," they write on their blog, "creating our very own romantic version of the Mile High Club." —Phillip B. Crook
