Is your wedding day coming up soon? Are you in dire need of fun and twisted ideas to make your big day even more special? We must admit that almost every little girl dreams of a traditional white wedding. Most people do not like risks and things that stand out too much, so they prefer to play it safe. Nevertheless, what if you do not want your wedding to be like anything you or your friends and family have seen before? After reading some of these unique ideas, tips, and tricks, you will wish that you could have thought of them sooner!
Decide on the venue
Choosing an appropriate venue for your wedding is extremely important. You should probably opt for a venue that includes both an indoor area and an outdoor one. It is best if you find one that has a large yard because you will have more options to be creative and let your imagination go wild! For example, you can organize a barbeque outside. This way, you can make your wedding day a bit more casual and fun. Imagine eating steak, ribs, or a sausage in formal attire. Other outdoor ideas that are out of the ordinary are carnival rides, bouncy houses, or food trucks. Carnival rides and getting your hands on a bouncy house are an excellent option if you have kids around. On the other hand, food trucks are great if your guests are extra hungry or maybe want to try out something different. We must agree that nothing beats a wedding that has a variety of awesome meal choices, and a carnival ride in the backyard. Hopefully, you let the food digest for a bit before going on the ride.
Spice up the food
Deciding on what you will be serving to your guests at your wedding can quickly cause a headache for most brides, grooms, or wedding planners. Naturally, not everyone who has been invited will have the same taste in food. Nowadays, as people are getting more health-conscious, there will be a few who will refuse to try anything that contains animal products, gluten, refined sugars, and so on. A good way to solve this issue is to for example make the food at your wedding vegan-friendly. Nevertheless, it is important to notify the guests beforehand, so that there are no upset meat eaters. Other things that you can do are to omit the processed ingredients and concentrate on whole foods instead. Thankfully, there are a lot of health-conscious catering services that will help you out. If you are a person who is into fitness and bodybuilding, maybe a macro-friendly menu is your best bet.
Not so ordinary wedding cake
Who says that you can only have a simple vanilla cake or maybe plain chocolate? You can definitely let your creativity on the loose and get a wedding cake which will take the guest’s breath away. Some interesting flavours that you can try out are, for example, the Spiked Red Velvet, Pink Champagne, or maybe just make one up on your own. If you don’t want to be too experimental with the flavour of the cake, you can always go wild on the decoration instead. Topsy-turvy cakes are quite popular nowadays. Also, you can definitely try customizing the bride and groom piece that goes on top.
Pick a good photographer
Choosing a photographer is vital if you want to capture the beautiful moments on your special day. Try talking to a few friends and see if any of them knows someone whom they can recommend. After finding the right person to do the job, consult with him/her and see what kind of theme you are looking for. Make sure that the photographer is experienced and that he is using affordable and high-quality photography equipment. You can decide on a variety of fun themes. For example, the bridesmaids and guests of honour can wear superhero (or supervillain) costumes underneath their formal attire, or maybe you can try out something cartoon themed. The possibilities and ideas are definitely endless!
Keep the kids occupied
If you invited a lot of people to your wedding, it is most likely that they will be bringing their children or younger siblings along. For this reason, including a kid’s table is always a great idea. To make their time more enjoyable, you can give out small treats to them by placing the gifts on each seat. Also, activity packs are life savers! Try including colourful crayons, paper, stickers, and so on. If you have a little bit of empty space left at the table, you can try adding a board game or something that you think the children will enjoy playing. Some balloons and a DIY confetti bar is also an idea that not only the kids, but the adults will enjoy! If you want to spare yourself on the clean up later, maybe try switching out the confetti with bubble wands!
In conclusion, you definitely do not need to have a traditional wedding. Forget what people have told you about how a wedding should look like, and try stepping out of your comfort zone. Barbeques, carnival rides, and even superhero themed pictures are things that can make your special day even more special! In the end, it will be a day that everyone invited will talk about for years to come.
