Planning an Unconventional Wedding? Here Are 3 Things You Can Do


Committing to spend the rest of your life with one special person is a big decision that requires a lot of discernment as well as heart and soul. After all, settling down with someone is not always a walk in the park. So if you and your significant other are getting married soon, be sure to make your wedding as unconventional as possible.

Here are some of the things you can do when it comes planning an out-of-the-ordinary nuptials:

Forget about dress code.

If you want to be in a bright pink bridal frock as you walk down the aisle, you can now do so, since lot of brides are now turning to coloured dresses. Some even go to great lengths to buy printed bridal clothing. You can find brilliant options at Akina Bridal Couture - bridal gowns online. To make your wedding unconventional, you can have your bridesmaids choose their own dresses as long as they're from the same colour palette. Be sure to know the five style rules for mismatched bridesmaid dresses to make this idea really work.

For the groom and his groomsmen, they can wear all black ensembles with bright pink bow ties and coloured leather or suede shoes or white canvas shoes. Check out our tailor-made suits now.

Add elements of fun here and there.

Instead of hiring a red carpet for your walk down the aisle, why not create your own runner. DIY runners can be made of canvas or fabric where you can write your wedding vows on or a personal message for all your beloved guests. This can be the perfect backdrop for an obligatory “selfie” or “usie” at any wedding.

If you're going to have an outdoor Lauriston House wedding reception in Sydney, give your guests the best party ever by having bouncy castles or houses set up in an open area. This will definitely give your nuptials a relaxed and comfortable feel. Then, as part of your treat for all those who made it to your big day, get a hotdog, ice cream, fish and chips or taco truck propped in your venue. Don't forget to set up a confetti bar for guests to have fun mixing their confetti to throw after the ceremony.

Opt for DIY items wherever applicable.

This will not only make your wedding out of the ordinary, but also help you save money, which you can spend on your honeymoon. For one thing, you can DIY your bouquet; instead of buying expensive floral arrangements, you can use paper flowers, buttons, ribbons, felt, beads, lace, feathers, dried flowers, old jewellery parts or just about anything that you fancy. You can find fantastic ideas here. You can also create your own place cards, favours, guest books and centrepieces. Get inspiration from Pinterest.com.

With all the effort that you'll be exerting to make your big day really memorable, you'll most likely want to have equally beautiful pictures to remind you how special that day was. So be sure to hire only the best photographers and videographers.
