Choose a wedding cake made of cheese or pizza slices instead of your usual, traditional iced wedding cake. Opt for a wedding fish and chip van or have an owl fly down the aisle with your wedding rings. You don�t have to follow tradition if that�s not what you want. It�s your special day & it�s your choice to arrange it in the way that you wish. 2 Customize it! Pick out your wedding dress, shoes, bridesmaids dresses. Then customize them by blinding them up to your particular style and taste. Angelina Jolie recently married Brad Pitt. She chose paintings made by her children on her veil. 3. Unusual wedding favors

Or the coasters could contain a special saying or image. Whatever you decide, you will add your unique touch to it in some way. 4.

Across the world, there are thousands upon thousands, of alternative wedding venues. You can get married in a cave. By an underwater lake in Cornwall. In a car in Vegas. Upside down. On the edge of a cliff. Perform a bungee jump just after your vows; get married in a tipi or on top of a mountain or a beach. Where you get married is completely up to you and your partner. You can add a theme to your day. Create a fun dress up occasion, such as the great Gatsby. Superheroes or your favorite Disney characters! You could use the day to remember a loved one that has not been able to make your special day. Maybe release balloons or lanterns. Mention your loved one in a speech. Sing in their honor or lighting candles. Your wedding day is not just about taking your vows. It is an expression of yourself and your creativity, by making it unique to you. Whatever you decide on, remember what the day is truly about. Committing to sharing your life with your loved one.
