Quirky ways to make your wedding different
FOR lovers of traditional weddings, this won’t be for you.
Using some imagination, inspiration and creativity, brides around the globe are coming up with quirky ways to make their weddings that little bit different.
Best dog: Your four-legged friends are making their way down the aisle, either in place of ring bearers and flower girls, or just new additions to the bridal party. Just ensure they have a chance to relieve themselves before they are called to duty.
Trash the gown: Brides are trashing their wedding dresses after their nuptials. Some brides are seen to have a cheeky game of paint ball, go swimming or roll in mud. Given the cost of some dresses, if you are keen on this idea it might be best to have a cheaper version for this purpose.
Share the love: Want to marry on a low budget? Then a group wedding may be the go for you. Group weddings mean bride and grooms can share the cost of everything.
Online romance: Through using your own wedding website, you can save on postage costs while sharing as much wedding information as your heart desires. After the event, the website doubles as a platform to share messages and photographs.
Wild about the flowers: The look of freshly-picked floral arrangements is making waves at many weddings. The rustic, farm fresh, organic look of freshly picked blooms can be a lot more affordable than formal arrangements.
Signature cocktails: Forget champagne upon arrival, signature cocktails are the newest trend. Cocktails usually reflect the personality of the couple or wedding theme, making for a boozy welcome for guests. Best to avoid those cocktails with the novelty names or expletives and stick to the classics.
