While there are guests and technicalities to account for, your wedding is ultimately all about you and your partner. This is the one day as a couple where you have complete control over everything from venue to decor, and no one can comment or complain. The more that you make your wedding unique to you, the more likely it is that this will be a stand-out, memorable day that really celebrates the two of you.
Unfortunately, while the idea of a traditional church white wedding is slowly fading into history as a ‘go-to’, it can still be difficult to picture a wedding setup that’s completely against the grain. But have you ever considered how your personalities provide you with a ready-made alternative wedding solution?
Unique weddings don’t get better than this, and we’ve put together just a few alternative wedding ideas for a range of different personality profiles.
The quiet couple
If you’re a quiet couple, then the idea of any amount of wedding celebration may feel overwhelming. However, more and more couples are heading towards a quieter way of doing things. For one thing, limitations during lockdown have meant that it’s no longer unusual to keep your wedding party to as few as 30 close friends and family. As can be seen from Monalogue’s viral sensory-friendly wedding, you could also factor in things like quiet time, or even use
earplugs if you’d prefer that more intimate sensory experience. ‘Micro venues’ can work wonderfully for these quiet wedding days, with smaller rooms, a more intimate vibe, and the benefit of a more manageable budget.
The night owls
If you and your partner are night owls, then getting up early on your wedding day might leave you feeling groggy and out of sorts. To overcome this, consider changing your wedding timeline to a more suitable framework. A twilight wedding ceremony can be incredibly romantic and ensures that you’re both feeling fully energised to enjoy this experience. Then, you could either implement a lovely evening sit-down meal or jump straight into a reception party that keeps the night as alive as you are at this later hour.
The sun seekers
If you and your partner are happiest abroad, then don’t make the mistake of settling for a close-to-home wedding just to please your guests. Most of your friends and family will be more than happy to travel for the sake of seeing you married in your favourite spots. To ensure that this isn’t too unreachable a goal, you may find it worth considering countries that are within less than a three-hour flight, and also offering to pay for guest accommodation if you’re able. Then, whether you pick a beachside wedding in Italy or a rustic French chateau, you can enjoy the sun, fun, and the countries closest to your heart on your big day.
These are just a few of the personality-wedding matches that you may want to turn to. Other options include a library wedding for bookworms, a sunshine theme for positive thinkers, and many many more!
