Why get married on your $55 million France estate when you can get married aboard a tony ship sailing the seas off Scotland? The Sun reports that may indeed be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's latest plan: The Hebridean Princess, which has been chartered by the Queen herself (or as the Sun puts it, "THE QUEEN"), holds 50 people and would, of course, offer total privacy, a source explains. Apparently the floating wedding idea was son Maddox's idea; he spotted the ship "after looking back at photos of the Carnell Estate in Ayrshire, where they stayed and all loved," a favorite pastime of any 11-year-old.

Brad and Angie are looking into booking the ship, which would set them back more than $450,000. "They could always sail to a secluded bay off the Orkney or Shetland islands and have the ceremony there," the source hypothesizes. "The kids are all hooked on old British voyages, so they would love it. The fact that Maddox found it makes it more special." Grazia reports that Jolie is considering Hawaii as a wedding location, at least for "the legal part of the ceremony," which would be "a very private, emotional affair" with just the couple and their children, a source says, according to the Belfast Telegraph. Hawaii was her mother Marcheline Bertrand's favorite place, and Jolie wants to wear Bertrand's wedding dress from the 1970s. (Read more Brad Pitt stories.)
