News

Couples can get married or renew their vows alongside the World Famous Ripley’s Fertility Statues

Couples looking to get married or renew their vows have a unique opportunity at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Myrtle Beach this February. And if they’re interested in having a baby, Ripley’s can help with that too.

During Ripley’s Unbelievable Wedding event, couples can legally get married or renew their vows alongside the famous Ripley’s Fertility Statues, which are credited with helping more than 2000 women get pregnant. They are currently on a world tour.

The statues will be at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium in Myrtle Beach from February 5 through March 1.

The package also includes a two-night hotel stay and two tickets to the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium, Ripley’s Aquarium, Ripley’s Mirror Maze and Ripley’s Moving Theater. The cost of the package is $399.99 plus tax and couples must pre-register by calling Kim Kiff at 843-455-5702.

“What an ‘unbelievable’ way to jump start your marriage or begin your married life together.  How many people can say that during their wedding they were flanked by a six-legged cow and the world-famous fertility statues?” said Kim Kiff, director of Ripley’s Ocean Boulevard attractions.

The ceremonies will take place next to the fertility statues, in the lobby of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium. A singer will perform while a Ripley’s official performs the nuptials. Friends and family are welcome to watch.
 
The five-foot tall wooden fertility statues were acquired from the Ivory Coast of West Africa in 1993, and were placed in the lobby of Ripley Entertainment’s corporate headquarters in Orlando. Within months, 13 women, including staffers and office visitors were pregnant. The edifices have made three trips around the world, and have become very popular for couples trying to conceive.

“We are a family venue, and we are doing our part to help others start or add to their own families. It is an honor to have the opportunity to help out prospective parents, ” said Kiff.
