Back in the day, weddings all bore a similar resemblance. The bride would wear a white dress as the groom would wait for her arrival at the altar.
However, times have changed, and people no longer want their wedding to follow traditional norms. People want their special day to be unique and fun.
The great thing about planning your wedding is that you can make it your own. There’s no need to follow trends or behave how others expect you to. If you’re not the traditional couple, don’t be afraid to create an event that reflects your quirks. Here are six fun and fresh wedding ideas…
Find a memorable outfit
Find a memorable outfit like a nontraditional wedding dress or pantsuit that will really let your personality shine through. You can even wear a bright and bold colour instead of white. Don’t forget to add some fun accessories too!
Choose an unconventional venue
One of the best ways you can shake up your wedding is by choosing an unconventional venue to host it.
Some fantastic ideas include a summer camp, theme park, art gallery, museum, or even an aquarium. Bear in mind that the kind of venue you pick will affect how many guests you can accommodate.
Hire a tattoo artist
If you want to give your guests a wedding favour that they will remember for the rest of their lives, why not hire a tattoo artist for your big day?
It’s an offbeat idea, but it will go down a treat with the right kind of crowd. You can even get a special tattoo designed in honour of your wedding.
Make it a surprise
Weddings are incredibly stressful to plan, especially because everyone wants to give their opinion on how it should be done.
One fun idea is to invite all of your friends to a party, once they show up you can let them know it’s really your wedding and make it a complete surprise!
Have a friend officiate
There are different rules as to who may officiate your wedding depending on where you live.
However, if a loved one doesn’t mind getting ordained, it’s a cool idea to have someone close to you be the officiate. It could even be the friend that introduced you to your future spouse.
Straight to the honeymoon
Couples spend thousands of dollars on a wedding that only lasts a day. Instead of having such a large celebration, why not skip the ceremony and go straight to the honeymoon? Have a small gathering with your closest friends and spend the rest of your budget on the holiday you and your partner have always dreamt of.
When it comes to planning your special day, the most important thing about it is that you and your partner are happy. Don’t be afraid to let loose and hold a ceremony that is completely out-of-the-box. Hopefully our blog has given you plenty of inspiration to create a weird, wacky, and, most importantly, wonderful wedding.
