We love everything to do with unusual weddings, but we also understand that not every bride has a bottomless bank account. If you want your wedding to be quirky as well as spectacular, then these are the main areas you should focus your attention on.
If you stick to these guidelines, even the most stringent scrutiny from your elderly auntie won’t be a match for you’re penny saving tricks and tips. You don’t have to spend a fortune on fancy favours and arrangements – just some hard-work and creativity will do the trick!
Think about your florals
Your flowers are a fantastic way of demonstrating your quirky side, you just need to know how to get creative with them. It’s always a good idea to speak to a florist about your ideas, and even enlist their help to choose what you’re going to use, but you can do the styling yourself if you have the right guidance.
What about a grassy backdrop instead of an archway, or hanging floral lanterns? Would you prefer a forest theme littered with old jam jars as centrepieces, and vases stuffed with wildflowers? Or a beach theme so that you can create a fish bowl full of sand, starfish and shells? It doesn’t matter what your passion is, there are tonnes of ways that you can get that quirky look you’ve always wanted, but without it being too dramatic. Click for some inspiration.
Use your dress to impress
Your wedding dress should tell the world and everyone in it who you are as a person. You want to stand out on your big day, and a great alternative to the standard wedding dress is to go with a supplier who can provide modifications to traditional gowns. If you’re searching for , for example, you should stop by Scarlet Poppy. They like to nurture the creative side of every bride, so their designers are very flexible in adapting dresses to suit your individuality.
Your quirky touch doesn’t just have to stop at your dress either. How about tweed waistcoats for the groomsman, or non-matching bridesmaids dresses that reflect different elements of your wedding? It’s your big day, so anything goes!
Have your cake and eat it
Traditional cakes are seen as so boring and generic these days, so a lot of people are using them as a blank canvas for quirkiness. It’s a symbol of who you are as a couple, so don’t be afraid to stray from the traditional. Do you love to travel? Try a “pile of suitcases” cake with a little explorer couple on top. If you don’t even like cake, why not have several tiers of different cheese wheels served with grapes and crackers?
Similarly, you can look for catering companies that provide something a little different, whether that’s a whole hog roast with medieval trimmings, or burger sliders for a 1950s american-style wedding.
I hope this post has given you the guidance you needed to give your wedding that quirky twist. Let me know how it goes!
