Struggling for ideas for the perfect alternative wedding? Why not check out these fantastic tips for a show-stopping wedding with a twist!
1. Recreate Holiday Park Happiness
We are all familiar with the popular venues for weddings, so why not consider something a little different but will definitely create an amazing memory for years to come! Who doesn’t love a visit to the seaside, so consider incorporating your love for the sea by booking your wedding venue at a seaside holiday park like Belle Aire Holiday Park in Hemsby?
This venue in particular has a great onsite entertainment space called Club Belle, with professional sound and lighting and a fully stocked bar. With overnight accommodation for 120+ guests and the beach just a short 5-minute walk away, it’s the perfect way to recreate that nostalgia from childhood holidays by the sea and give all your guests a truly original wedding party to remember!
2. Fizz without the Fuzz
Weddings can be a long affair, with celebratory fizz on arrive, toasts during the day and an evening full of drinks and partying.
Help your guests to keep the pace and last the whole day by switching your arrival drink to a non-alcoholic fizz like Botonique? Served in a champagne flute it looks just like Prosecco, but without the calories or alcohol content!
3. Insta Albums
If you’re on a budget but want to make sure you get all the great snaps from your day, why not just set up a #hashtag and encourage your guests to snap and share their photos using it? It’s the perfect way to easily find all your guests Insta snaps, which you can then collate and print cheaply via an online photo provider like FreePrints
4. Paper Bouquets
Flowers can be an expensive addition to your wedding budget and choices can be affected by the season. Plus, unless you pay over the odds to have them preserved after the event, you’ll only be able to remember them in photographs. So why not consider paper bouquets which you and your bridesmaids could make together and even frame after the event? If you aren’t the creative type, there are plenty of amazing suppliers on Etsy who can supply them ready made such as this beautiful bouquet by Cooper Craft Designs
5. Say Cheese!
Instead of a traditional cake, why not have a cake made from various different cheeses, with chutneys and biscuits to accompany? It’s ideal for those of us who don’t have a sweet tooth. Plus, it’s a great talking point too! Check out this amazing Godminster Celebration Organic Cheese Cake available from Borough Box
6. Perfect Pets
Your best friends may not all be human, so how about adding some of the cute furry kind to your guest list? Companies like Very Important Paws specialise in helping you to plan the best way to include your pets in your special day. Or hire a dog sitter to keep an eye on your own dog during the ceremony? Your guests will be raving about the best wedding of the year!
