How To Get Married Without Being Traditional

When people decide to get married, many happy couples want to have a traditional wedding. This is where they get married in a church, and the bride has a flowing (and expensive) wedding dress. They’ll also wish to invite hundreds of friends and family members to share in their happy day.

And then there are the “trimmings”. I’m talking about things like the reception party, professional photography and more. As you can imagine, a traditional wedding is often quite complicated and costly.

Of course, more people are opting for non-traditional weddings. Let’s face it; the special day should be about the happy couple, not what everyone else expects them to do! If you want to stick your middle finger up at tradition, how should you get married? Check out these tried and tested methods for an alternative wedding experience:

Get married in an open space

A recreational ground might be a nice place to have a picnic or walk the dog. But, could it be your perfect wedding venue? Getting married outdoors has become an alternative to church weddings! Let’s face it; the cost is low (and sometimes free) plus everyone can enjoy basking in the noonday sun!

Of course, you will need to get prior permission from the landowner before using the space. Still, if you don’t want a traditional church wedding, this could be the way forward!

Don’t go formal

One of the things people hate about weddings is having to wear a suit or dress for the occasion. Wouldn’t it be great if you could go in your casual wear? Well, believe it or not, many happy couples don’t enforce strict dress codes on their guests. They even dress down for the occasion too!

For example, people getting married on a beach might do so wearing shorts and T-shirts!

Opt for some silicone bands

Wedding rings can often cost thousands. Sometimes people get themselves into a lot of debt just to have a gold and diamond wedding ring.

One interesting trend is that more people are instead opting for silicone rings. Not only are they super cheap, but they’re also quite stylish too! After all; you don’t need an expensive ring to tell someone that you want to be with them forever.

Ask people for donations instead of presents

You’ll no doubt want to go somewhere nice and exotic for your honeymoon. But, you might not be able to afford somewhere like the Caribbean. In a traditional wedding, people will often buy the happy couple gifts of some sort. Like a new toaster or something.

As you’re not having a traditional wedding, why not just ask people to donate to your honeymoon fund? It’s a legitimate request, and it means you won’t have to spend two weeks at home after you get married!

Dispense with the fancy invitations

Everyone has a smartphone and email these days. Why do you need to spend money on traditional wedding invitations? Just create an email list and send a message to everyone asking if they’ll come to your wedding!

The perfect wedding day is something that all women spend their entire lives dreaming about. You’ve probably had ideas swirling around your end since childhood. Once the proposal has been made, though, most brides will be hit with an overwhelming sense of pressure.

It’s true that there is a huge amount of importance on getting it right. However, this is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. If I was getting hitched this year, these are the four items that would be top of my agenda. Make them yours, and you’ll be just fine.

The Outfit

This is your big day, and you deserve to look and feel your best. For this reason, the wedding dress is one of the most important outfits that you’ll ever wear. As such, it’s imperative that you find the perfect dress that makes you feel like the princess you deserve to be on this day.

Meanwhile, you’ll want to ensure that your bridesmaids dazzle too. Finding elegant dresses can be difficult. But if you know what to look for, then you shouldn’t have too many issues. Getting this aspect right will put many of your fears to bed. Moreover, it ensures you’ll make the grand entrance that you’ve been dreaming about for years.

The Venue

There is a long list of elements that contribute to the big day. However, without the perfect backdrop, many of those other factors will feel underwhelming. In truth, choosing the right venue is crucial.

The quality of your venue will influence almost every other aspect. Many couples find that hiring a professional planner to find the perfect wedding venue helps. After all, the right location opens up an endless of possibilities.

Aside from appearances, you need to consider the geographical location too. Finding a venue that’s accessible for guests is crucial.

The Photographers

You’ll spend months planning the big day. But when it arrives, it’ll fly by. Therefore, you need to be sure that those magical moments are captured for a lifetime. Choosing a suitable photographer is vital, especially as those images will take pride in your home.

Meanwhile, expert wedding videographers can capture those moments on film. A DVD of your big day is the ultimate way to reminisce about the most perfect day in your life. Furthermore, it serves as a nice present for distant family members that couldn’t make the event.

Another top trick is to give disposable cameras to your guests ahead of the evening meal. This will give you an account of their day too.

The Seating Plans

They say a wedding isn’t complete until there has been a fight. If you’re planning yours in 2016, avoiding those confrontations should be a key item on your agenda. And this starts with arranging your seating plans accordingly.

There’s a strong chance that either you or the groom comes from a broken home. This can cause friction. But as long as you plan ahead, you can prevent it being a major problem. In turn, this will allow you to enjoy the big day as intended. Perfect.
