You may have heard that many people meet their future spouse at a wedding, but did you know a wedding is an even better place to score an easy hook-up? According to's Wedding Hook Up survey, 67 percent of singles have hooked up during a wedding and didn't need a room key to do it.

With wedding season in full swing, you'll likely be attending at least one so why not be prepared for that magic moment.

After you've had your fill of signature drinks and pigs-in-a-blanket, find that guy or gal you were eyeing during the ceremony and take a spin on the dance floor. If the chemistry is right, excuse yourselves to one of these discrete destinations for your own wedding night action.

1. Bathrooms

The bathroom is the most obvious place to go. But if discretion is the goal, then the men's room is the clearest choice. Remember: Men's shoes seen under a ladies' room stall door is a dead giveaway, while in a men's room a woman's feet don't necessarily need to be touching the floor.

2. Under the Reception Table

If the linens are long enough you can probably fit two under a 72" round, but you'll have to make sure your high notes aren't louder than the wedding singer's. One positive of doing it under the table is that you'll have a simple reason while you were under there in the first place: You dropped your napkin/earring/fork and he was helping you find it... under your bridesmaid dress.

3. Conference Room

If the wedding is being held in a hotel where there are plenty of empty banquet and conference rooms, you may find an unlocked door and turn the room into your own private suite. Of course a table and chairs may make it easier to get your groove on, but beggars can't be choosers, so just be happy you have the room all to yourselves.

4. Bridal Suite

The bride won't be using her getting-ready suite much after the ceremony so you'll have the comforts of a plush couch, private bathroom, left over champagne and snacks, and a closet to hide in if you need to. If you choose this semi-private spot for your hook-up pick a time when you know the bride won't be popping in to reapply her lipstick, like during the father-daughter dance, toasts or cake cutting.

5. Elevator

If you can't make it back up to your room and have to have each other right then and there the elevator will do. This popular hook up spot -- according to the Wedding Hook Up survey it's the #1 location for hotel hook ups outside a guest room -- is almost always being watched by a security team, so be aware that you're being watched, and if you're into that then smile for the camera!

6. The Parking Lot

If you drove to the wedding, or know where the key to the newlywed's getaway car is, make it like you're in high school and jump into the back seat. The great thing about hooking up in a car is temperature control and satellite radio... pump up the volume and move to your favorite tunes.

7. Outdoors

You may think a golf course or garden is a great spot for sex under the stars but just because it's dark out doesn't meet you can't get caught. Many resorts have sprinkler systems on timers, which may cool you off just as things are heating up.
