Non-traditional wedding ideas

Gabrielle, on July 19, 2023 at 13:32 Posted in Wedding ceremony 0 2


Me and my fiancé are aiming for a non-traditional wedding. We played around with a few ideas like walking down the aisle together, beer boy instead of flower girls and maybe a unity ceremony. We are not looking at anything religious, and are having a friend officiate. We mostly want the wedding to be a party and something fun for all our guests. We are still at the very beginning of the planning process and so I'm really open to what this community has to share!

My fiancé is really interested in including something cute/fun that we could reproduce from maybe another culture's tradition. I like the idea of a unity ceremony, but would want something that represents both of us, and the reason we're so great together is we are REALLY different, so no luck on that side yet! Smiley smile

Let me hear your fun ideas for any part of the wedding (nothing too expensive though)!

    I don't know them personally but heard of a couple who had a tattoo artist at their wedding who tattooed symbols that were personal to the couple on their left ring finger, instead of wedding rings.

    My husband and I had a very non traditional day.

    We gathered with his children, prior to guests arriving and did our own mini ceremony with just us and them. We then had guests arrive right into a cocktail hour type of setting where we had appetizers, open bar, a live band, and a magician floating around from group to group (big hit, awesome strolling magic), then a sit down dinner at 7 and dancing in the evening. We did not have speeches planned but a few family members ended up saying some really nice words at dinner, it was kind of an open mic type of feeling haha. This was all at a fancy condo room downtown with a beautiful terrace. I did not walk out to music or have anyone walk me down an aisle, we both just literally greeted guests as they came in.

    We really wanted the evening to be focused more on celebrating our love yes, but enjoying with those closest to us and it was honestly so intimate and not over the top "wedding" feeling at all as (nothing wrong with that), it just doesn't represent us as a couple. I like you wanted it to be so fun for our guests and just wanted everyone to enjoy together. So totally make sure you have a day that is comfortable for you both, however you go about it, I truly think this is so important Smiley heart
