If you are soon tying the knot, or are beginning to start planning for your special day, then you do not need to follow the norm when it comes to having a truly unique and different wedding day. If you are sticking to a strict budget or trying to count the coins, then let your imagination run away with you, and you can let your creativity run wild when it comes to your reception, wedding favors, and even your invites. From creating your own invites to exploring alternative venue ideas, try these unusual wedding ideas to help you get inspired in time for your big day.

Wedding invites

Once you have set the date and decided where you want to get married, then it is time for you to send out your wedding invites. Buying cards and invitations can usually cost a fortune, so why not get inspired and try making your own invites that are truly personal and unique to you. You could try using Adobe Spark to make free printable cards that are ready in a matter of minutes. If you are stuck for ideas, why not go through photos from when you first met, or even share some fun images of you and your partner together as your relationship blossomed – your entire guest list will love it! 

Wedding favors

Even if you only have a small number of attendees, it is important that you choose and plan your wedding favors carefully, as this will make your day even more special and memorable. You could consider making your own favors, by filling small glass jars with your favorite candies, or if you still have time on your hands, then why not make your own seasonal spirit with a small message so that your guests can shake up your favorite cocktail from the comfort of their own home. 

Wedding venue

Your wedding venue will make or break your special day, so you need to ensure that you choose the right venue for you and your entire wedding party. Rather than splashing out on an expensive venue, you could consider taking matters into your own hands and decorating and preparing a space that is special for both you and your loved one. Take your time when looking for a wedding venue, and be sure to visit any potential site or location with a list of questions, no matter how small you think that they are.

If you are planning your own wedding, or are keen to tie the knot soon, then why not break with tradition and get creative so that you can make your special day a standout occasion. If you are sticking to a budget, consider making your own wedding invites rather than spending a fortune on store-bought designs. Try making your wedding favors at home. Finally, take your time choosing a venue and ensure that you have full control over how you want the space to look and feel on the day too. Start planning early, and you will enjoy your wedding day.
