When it comes to your big day, it is important to have everything just the way you want. There are some amazing websites, magazines and books that can help give you wedding day inspiration however your wedding day should be unique and perfect just for you. You only get married once, so having it perfect for you is essential.
So, if you’re looking for unusual twists to add to your wedding what could you be considering?
It is quite normal for people to hire a DJ for their wedding to provide the music, but you should consider that there are other options. Traditional music is often a good choice – so for example bagpipes if you want to give a nod to your Scottish heritage. Harps are often a popular choice too. If you have any friends and family that can play music then getting them to provide music for your special day can be a good choice too.
The meal that you give your guests can seem like a big deal, but it doesn’t have to be. Rather than a sit down meal you can go for some sort of finger buffet idea. If you would rather not have a serve yourself finger buffet then an afternoon tea idea often works well. You can go for finger sandwiches, scones and small cakes which tend to go down well with guests.
Wedding limos here are considered the norm when it comes to transport, but that is far from your only option. If you have an interest in vintage cars then these can often work well as wedding transport too. Horse and carts are also popular choices. If you really want to go for unusual then you could arrive on a motorbike or in a monster truck. When you start looking at unusual wedding day transport the possibilities are endless.
When most of us think about wedding dresses we tend to picture ivory gowns that go down to the floor with sequins and lace. These dresses are beautiful but as with most wedding choices, you can go down a different route. If you have a favourite colour then you could go for a dress in this colour. It is also worth considering a short dress, especially if you are having a vintage theme.
Your wedding is really about personal choice and what you would prefer. It is easy to feel pressure from your guests and what is expected. However, you should remember that people are there to help you celebrate your big day and will have a good time no matter what theme or colour scheme you choose. You only get one chance to get it right. So if you want to arrive wearing a bright pink dress or you want to get on your bike and cycle there, do it! Your wedding should be a reflection of your personality and the only way you can do this is to not buckle under pressure and make your own wedding day choices.
