Maybe you are a unique couple. You enjoy getting out in the world and doing your own thing. Tradition has never been a big deal to you, so why should you start now, with your wedding?
There is no reason why your wedding has to be like anyone else’s. You are allowed to be unique. It is your day and there is no wrong way to do it.
Let us give you a few fun tips on how to have a wedding that you and your guests will never forget.
Make the trip down the aisle, a real trip.
Do you love the mountains? Is your idea of fun riding up mountain trails to see incredible views? Then the Jeep Ride wedding sounds like a good fit.
There are transportation companies in many mountain areas that will drive you by jeep (or Hummer) up a mountain trail. Have them line up and take your guest’s convoy style to the top of the mountain.
When you get to the top, have tents set up, with seating areas and have a catering team cooking for them outside. Serve hot steaks or go with grilled chicken. The caterer will make suggestions based on your tastes and location, This is especially beautiful in Colorado.
Note: Make sure you give the guests a hint by printing, “Wear pants and bring a parka on the invitation.”
Do you love the idea of flying in the beautiful blue skies? How about an outdoor wedding where guests are transported from the wedding to the reception (and back) via hot air balloon? All you need is wide open spaces for takeoff and landing. This is perfect for the park or beach wedding.
New Orleans Style Parade
Have your reception at a location a couple of blocks from the wedding venue. Hire some trumpet players.
Hand out ribbons to wave, flags, feathers, and confetti, and strike up the music. With the bride and groom in the lead, dance/march to the music waving your ribbons and throwing confetti. You can give the guests small bags of candy to throw to the crowd that is sure to stop and watch this New Orleans style parade. They may even join in the fun.
You can continue the party at the venue with some good old-fashioned comfort food and a DJ to keep the dance floor hopping.
Be sure to let your bridal shop know of your New Orleans theme. They will help you select the perfect wedding gown and bridesmaid’s dresses to fit the occasion. Click here for more: https://www.azazie.com/all/bridesmaid-dresses/with/straps/sleeves
If you are getting married in a ballroom or hotel, arrange a balloon drop. When the bride and groom have their first kiss, the balloons fall from the ceiling over the bridal party and their guests. This is a fun way to get the party started.
Welcome your guests to the wedding with specialty bags filled with candy, instead of programs. Have the bags custom printed announcing your wedding and the date and fill each one with bulk candy you ordered online. It is fresh and comes in a variety of colors, foils, and flavors.
There are plenty of ways to have a unique wedding that is all your own. All you have to do is give it a little personality and flare.
