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.
