If you and your partner pride yourself on being a little bit different from the norm, you love to embrace your eccentric sides and you like to be anything but normal, then the traditional wedding probably isn’t going to be part of your big day. Instead, you want to express your personality through your ceremony, your attire, your celebration, your cake and your whole vibe. While some people are happy to get married in a church and opt for the traditional disco party after the sit down three course meal, you aren’t after the same old nuptials as everyone else. Take a look at these incredible wedding ideas for the kookier couple.
Don’t think that you have to get married in a church or a hotel; there are plenty of other options out there. If you are nature lovers, why not get married in the great outdoors. You can apply for a temporary marriage license to get hitched in your garden, in a national park or on the beach. So long as you have a registrar willing to go for a kookier ceremony, you can head anywhere outdoors to say ‘I do.’ If you are movie lovers, and your first date was at the cinema, why not consider getting wed in an old arthouse cinema. These art deco buildings look awesome in photographs and you have a ready made red carpet aisle. With a big screen, you can display pictures of you and your partner for your nearest and dearest to coo over.
A tuxedo and a flowing white wedding dress may be the norm for a wedding. However, more people than ever are choosing to shun the traditional for something more individual. If you want a themed Hawaiian wedding, go for the colorful shirt and hula skirt combo. If you fancy a more sophisticated 1920s affair, opt for flapper dresses and achingly cool tweed.
When it comes to the rings, these bands for the bride veer away from the traditional single band of gold for something a little more ornate. Encrusted with stones and diamonds, you could have a band much more individual and personal to you.
While a sit down meal is the usual wedding breakfast, there are alternatives. Perhaps you fancy a less formal do, and a buffet of all of your favorite grub would suffice. Alternatively, you could opt for a mammoth hog roast, a barbecue or an outdoor cooking marquee. The food you choose should reflect you as a couple. If you are happily vegan, don’t serve meat just to please your guests. Be true to yourself and opt for the food you are happy to eat. For your cake, a three tiered affair might not be what you’re after. You could opt for a hundred cupcakes instead, or perhaps a giant pineapple upside down pudding is more your style.
Your wedding day should be the best day of your life. Make it even more special by shunning the traditional in favor of something more unique.
