Having an elaborate wedding function is not everyone’s cup of tea, and with the rising trend of alternative weddings, the two of you can have a wedding planned according to your dreams and wishes, no matter how unconventional they are.
Wear what you want
One way to make your wedding day about you, and only you is to ditch the white dress and wear whatever color and cut you desire. It is the celebration of you and your partner as a couple, so you must make choices that feel right to you as an individual and a couple. Do not give up your personal style to have a traditional wedding if it doesn’t make you feel happy. Customize your wedding drown with the overall theme of your big day. And remember, there are no wrong answers.
Have a courthouse wedding:
If you are planning to have a courthouse wedding, go ahead, and do not fear that it will be a drab, boring affair limited to a dreary government building. You can pick any courthouse that makes you feel happy and inspired. You can also add joy to the courthouse ceremony by dressing up, getting your hair and make up done, and having a grand celebration afterwards. Do whatever makes you happy, even if that means getting drinks with friends, or grabbing dinner as a couple.
Go on a mountain hike
If you are an adventurous couple, celebrate your big day by going on a mountain hike. The backdrop is going to be unmatched, the atmosphere would be scenic, and the hike will bring you two closer than ever. A wedding is supposed to be a journey that is equal parts effort and joy, so why not commemorate the big day with an equally momentous hike to match the sentiment.
Go on a picnic
If you plan to have a morning wedding ceremony, plan a day picnic ahead to mark the happy occasion. The picnic can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be. Pack a lunch and a few blankets, invite a few friends and you are good to go. Or you can go all out and plan a themed wedding picnic, complete with decorations, lavish food, wine and an aesthetically pleasing seating arrangement to have a good time. Overall, a day picnic will give a more casual and relaxed feel as compared to a nighttime reception.
