1) Hire A Wedding Painter
Everyone has a wedding photographer, but what about a wedding painter? Professional artists can create beautiful paintings of your wedding scenes, from the moment you say “I do” to your first dance, surrounded by family and friends. Let your loved ones and their smartphones snap the photos will you use your photographer budget on a painter instead.
2) Photos Of Younger You As Table Numbers
Why not get creative with table numbers by attaching photos of you and your special someone at various ages? It’s a fun way to add a unique twist to each table.
3) Crazy RSVP Cards
Before the wedding even begins, you can start having some fun with unique RSVP cards, like these ones which allow your guests to respond ‘mad libs’ style.
4) Leaves As Place Cards
If your wedding has a natural theme, using leaves as place cards is a wonderful decorative touch that can make a big difference.
5) Bouquet Alternatives
Why follow tradition and give the bride and bidesmaids bouquets when you can get creative and think outside the box? At this wedding, bridesmaids were given colorful tambourines to play together.
6) Furry Friends Add To The Fun
Many couples, particularly those who love animals, like to get furry friends involved. You can bring your own pets or even give a fun day out to some local rescue animals and maybe find them a new home among your friends and family.
7) Printed Vows
Vows are some of the beautiful words you’ll ever say to your partner, so why not get them beautifully printed in a way you can store and look back on forever more, or even display around the home?
8) Pretzel Stands Are All The Rage
One of the hottest and most unique trends in wedding food right now is the pretzel stand. Perfect for snacking and loved by all, pretzels are the ideal partners on any happy wedding day.
9) The Magic Of Candlelight
Sure, you can hire big fancy spotlights or have fairy lights draped around your venue, but there’s nothing quite as pure and magical as classic candles.
10) Edible Bouquets!
Flowers or donuts? We know which one we’d choose! Edible bridal and bridesmaid bouquets are becoming more and more popular and there are lots of options out there.
11) Remembering Those Who Can’t Come
Sometimes, an elderly relative or someone we love who passed away won’t be able to make it to our wedding, but we can still remember them on this special day with signs and chairs set aside just for them.
12) Dress Up Your Pets
If you’re bringing a furry friend along for the fun, dressing them up is a great way to add cuteness to your celebrations!
13) Simplicity Works Well
Sometimes, brides and grooms can worry too much about making everything overly complicated and detailed, but simple items are all you need, like this gorgeous cake with a pretty little bow.
14) Flower Grandmas?
Tradition says that flower girls have to walk down the aisle with baskets of petals, but rules are there to be broken! Let your grandma or even grandpa join in on the fun too!
15) Green Weddings
More and more people are trying to be green and care for the environment however they can, and simply having clearly marked recycling and compost areas can go a long way to making your wedding more eco-friendly.
16) Teeny Tiny Tissues
What do people do at weddings? They smile, they laugh, but they also tend to cry a whole lot of happy tears. Giving your guests little boxes of tissues is a nice way of showing how much you care.
17) Secret Sole Messages
All eyes are on the bride on any wedding day, but if you want to send a secret message to your special someone, you can always write it on the bottom of their shoes where nobody else can see.
18) Bouncy Castles
If you’re inviting a lot of children to the wedding, or a lot of adults who tend to act like children, a bridal bouncy castle is a super fun addition to your big day.
19) Cozy Seating Areas
If you’re hosting an outdoor wedding, set up some cozy nooks and comfortable seating areas with blankets and cushions for guests to enjoy.
20) The Invisible Ink Trick
Here’s a clever hack for all the wannabe-spies out there. Write the initials of each guest in invisible ink on RSVPs before sending them out. That way, if the guest responds and forgets to write their name, you’ll be able to see who it was.
21) Elegant Ankle Corsage
Don’t leave your feet out of the fun! An ankle corsage can be such a beautiful and elegant accessory to wear.
22) Cute Cake Boxes
The cake is one of the highlights of any wedding, but cutting it up and sharing it out can be tricky. Use small personalized boxes like these to make it much easier and more convenient for everyone.
23) Unique Gifts
Get creative with your gifts! This couple decided to hand out packets of seeds to their guests, encouraging them to plant them when they got home and “watch love grow”.
24) Shots Over Champagne
Champagne is the traditional wedding drink, but if you and your buddies prefer shots, go for it!
25) Beautiful Back Jewelry
If you’re wearing a simpler or lighter dress that shows off your back, adding a gorgeous necklace can really enhance your look.
26) Circular Seating
Arrange seats at your wedding in a circular or curved way to give people at the back a better view and better chance of hearing all your vows.
27) Magical Manicures
For your big day, consider a truly special manicure that incorporates elements and colors of your dress and accessories.
28) Throw Leaves, Not Rice
Rice isn’t really the best thing to throw at weddings. It can be harmful to birds and can even cause harm or discomfort to the bride and groom. Leaves are a lot nicer!
29) The Wheel Of Weddings
If you’re looking for a fun and unique game to play during your wedding reception, consider a fun wedding wheel with different tasks or prizes.
30) Embrace Your Personality
If you and your partner adore Harry Potter, have a Hogwarts-style wedding! If you love superheroes, make it Marvel-ous! Embrace the things you love and the passions that helped to bring you and your partner together to create a truly unforgettable wedding.
The love you and your partner share is unique, and your wedding deserves to be one of a kind too! Take inspiration from these awesome ideas to give yourself the best wedding ever.
