5 Alternative Wedding Options To Consider
A traditional wedding is always beautiful especially when everything goes exactly as planned. But sometimes, it's nice to shake things up a little. After all, it's your special day, and you should have the wedding you want that suits you and your partner’s personalities. Plus, times are changing, and most lovebirds of today are less interested in playing by the rules or meeting society's expectations of what an ideal wedding should look like. If you consider yourself an eccentric couple, here are five alternative wedding ideas that you can consider.
Why spend so much on expensive wedding venues when you have a backyard? If you want a small, private wedding, you can consider doing it in your backyard. You can hire a wedding planner who is creative enough to work magic with any venue size to assist you. One great thing about a backyard wedding, aside from the privacy, is that you can have the event at any time or day you prefer, as only a few people will attend.
2. A destination wedding
You can see a destination in the same light as an elopement wedding; only your guest and wedding entourage will go with you. Simply put, a destination wedding occurs outside the town or city the couple lives in. You can pick any location and invite as many guests as you prefer. In most cases, travel expenses for a destination wedding do not fall on the couple, which helps to cut down the wedding cost significantly.
3. Weekday wedding
You can consider getting married on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or any other weekday you prefer. It doesn't always have to be on the weekend. Getting married on a weekday comes with loads of benefits you cannot ignore. For example, you'll have fewer expenses to deal with, securing your dream venue will be easier, you can enjoy a more intimate or exclusive event, and you can even extend the party into the weekend.
4. Costume party wedding
You can also consider turning your eccentricity higher by planning a costume wedding. Instead of the usual boring dress codes, why not dress up in the costumes of your favourite characters or anything that meets your fancy and encourage your guests to do the same? A costume party wedding is a fun way to create a non-traditional wedding experience you'll never forget.
5. Elope to a secluded location
The concept of elopement is not a new one. If you're fond of romantic movies, you may have watched a movie about a couple running away from naysayers to get married somewhere else. And you can use a similar concept for your wedding if you and your partner do not want to be the centre of attention. In fact, you can get married without a wedding ceremony with an elopement wedding. All you'll need is someone to officiate the process and a witness. The party can come later. Only ensure you're not drunk when you elope; please try not to do it in Vegas.
