When you start to plan your wedding ceremony, it’s important to understand that there are a whole variety of options available to you to wow wedding guests. You don’t have to get married in a church, you don’t have to wear a white dress, you don’t even need the wedding march. Essentially, when you’re planning your wedding, you can make it completely unique and ensure that it’s everything you ever dreamed it could be. There are plenty of different options here, and we’re going to run through some of the most insane, incredible and outrageous. Let’s jump right in by thinking about the location, location, location!
See post after the cut!
Awesome Locations For Your Ceremony
As we said, you’re not tied down to choosing a church for your wedding ceremony. This is just one of the options. While there are some absolutely stunning churches for your wedding across the world, there’s also the possibility of using a private venue. These are perfect for weddings and often allow a truly spectacular environment for your ceremony.
However, you can also get married in the open, outdoors. This could again be on private land such as at a farm or possibly in a public area. For instance, in Hawaii, it’s quite common to get married on the beach as the sun begins to set across the sea. It’s a beautiful romantic setting that many people opt for although it is no doubt expensive. You have to get permission to use the beach, and there are a lot of venues that have actually bought beach properties to ensure they can sell this privilege.
If you want to be even more wild and adventurous and really wow wedding guests, you can think about getting married underwater. Yes, underwater weddings do happen, and they are more common than you might think. Perhaps the bride grew up watching The Little Mermaid, or maybe the groom was a diver? Either way, if you are desperate to be wed in a wetsuit, there are companies that cater to this possibility. Though again, it’s quite expensive.
Or how about getting wed in the air? You might have seen this on Don’t Tell The Bride with the ceremony taking place on an elevated platform. If you’re not scared of heights, it would certainly be an event you would never forget.
The truth is that you can get married absolutely anywhere if you have the money and the imagination. No one’s been wed in space yet, but we’re sure it’s just a matter of time.
Choosing a Theme
Or, how about making sure that the theme of your wedding separates it from the rest. We’ll start by thinking about a Hawaiian themed wedding. You might want to book the ceremony in Hawaii. Or perhaps, you just want to hold the wedding on a beach somewhere. For guests, you can have a no shoes, no shirt policy and ensure that the ceremony is incredibly carefree and fun. You can even have a special, Hawaii themed dress that still looks absolutely stunning. Or perhaps you just want to order some Hawaiian flowers for the wedding party to wear. These can be purchased from companies such as With Our Aloha, and it really is a wonderful idea. Giving Hawaiian flowers is actually very meaningful signifying well wishes for the next chapter in your life.
Alternatively, you can think about planning a fantasy wedding. Weddings like this often make the headlines because they are so unique. In some cases, it’s even possible to get a star or celebrity to take part in the ceremony. Again, this all depends on how much money you have and how much noise you can make on social media. Off the top of our head, we know that Ellen Degeneres, Lady GaGa, and Queen Latifah have all taken part in some form of a fan’s wedding ceremony. Perhaps you could get Mark Hamill for your own Star Wars wedding?
Then there’s the perfect option for Disney fanatics. It is possible to have a completely Disney themed wedding, right from the purchase of the engagement ring. You can buy engagement rings themed around the Disney princesses to propose. After that, you and your partner can arrange to be wed in Disney World. There’s even a special venue there, and if you pay extra, you can get the characters involved too. All of that will cost you well over fifty thousand.
If you want to show your love for Disney at your wedding without that price tag, you do have options. Again, there are Disney bridal dresses, and you can choose to walk down the aisle to one of your favorite songs rather than the traditional wedding march.
More Ways to Wow Wedding Guests
We’re really just scratching the surface of ways to really wow wedding guests and make your wedding truly unique. How about getting a friend or family member ordained. Made popular by TV shows like Friends, this idea isn’t quite as original as it used to be. In fact, it’s become incredibly popular, possibly because it’s so easy to get ordained these days. You just need to fill out a quick form online, and you’ll be ready to welcome two of your friends into married life.
Or, how about getting married on a rooftop? There are rooftop venues all around cities such as New York. If you’ve always dreamed of getting married in the Big Apple now, you can, overlooking the hustle and bustle of the city below.
We already mentioned different wedding themes but how about weddings from different cultures. For instance, you could plan a Greek wedding. Contrary to popular belief, neither you nor your family needs to be Greek to hold a ceremony like this. You just need to be ready to embrace the culture and why wouldn’t you want to? After all, during the reception at a Greek wedding, guests pin money to the bride’s dress. That’ll certainly make the honeymoon easier to afford.
Whatever choices you make to wow wedding guests we’re sure it will be wonderful and filled with memories that will last a lifetime. We hope you make it the perfect first chapter for the rest of your life.
