A memorable wedding needs a few quirky ideas
It’s the biggest day of your life, so you want to make it memorable, both for you and your guests. Almost anything is possible these days, so have a read of our guide to seven cool ideas to make your special day unique and unexpected.
According to the Independent, current trends include giving mini bottles of gin as gifts, playing wedding bingo and first dances to Ed Sheeran, so why not think outside the box and be different?
Travel in style
You can hire almost any vehicle of your choosing to get to and from your venue. You could steer clear of the traditional classic car and go for a camper van, London bus, pink taxi or even a golf cart.
Instead of a traditional sit-down meal, why not consider a street food truck which guests can stroll up to at any time they please? Other ideas include having a taco bar, where guests can fill their own. Research venues and talk to them about what they are happy to provide. Or have the wedding on your own land if you are lucky enough to own a large outdoor barn or garage. Make sure its clean, freshly painted, warm and any fixing you need to do get it done nice and early like the Garage Door Repair that’s been bugging you. This could be an easy fix if you contact companies including garage doors r us.
Hire an artist
Photographs are all well and good, but having an artist paint your ceremony will make it extra special and mean you have a unique keepsake. You might like to get a caricaturist to capture your guests and give them a keepsake too.
Unusual table accessories
Make the meal more interesting by providing diners with something to do in between courses such as wordsearch napkins or fortune telling decorations. Another great idea is to hire giant games such as Connect 4 and Jenga, especially good for any younger guests you might have.
Creative guest book
An album is boring when you can create a jigsaw puzzle with your picture on which lets guests sign a piece each.
Photo booths are so last year. Why not rent a video booth so your guests can record a personalised greeting for you which can be added to your wedding DVD. It’s sure to prove a hit, especially after a few glasses of fizz.
Help your guests feel up to breakfast the next day with their own hangover kit containing fizzy drinks and snacks, maybe even a coupon for a bacon sandwich.
