FI told me last night he wants a ‘unique’ wedding, but won’t tell me exactly what he wants. All he said was, “good food, dancing, and people having fun–and, stuff other people haven’t done” LOL! Thanks, honey, that narrows it down. I suppose he wants it to be about us (i.e. special touches), but nothing really comes to mind.. I’m drawing a complete blank. We have no hobbies, or anything to work around, so it sucks. The only thing I can think of incorporating is Buzz Lightyear, as that’s our saying (as in “to infinity, and beyond!”). How to use him in it somehow is puzzling.. haha.
I know we plan on doing an “I Spy” on the tables (not really ‘unique’, anymore, but none of our friends/family have done it), and I’m trying to talk him into a photo/faux-to booth (again, not ‘unique’, but no one has done it around here), but other-than-that.. nada.

Other than Buzz Lightyear (which, to me sounds a bit childish… maybe just use the saying?), are there any other movies you like? Seasons? Favorite places? Animals, pets, etc??? What type of movies do you like? As in genres. TV shows?
Take something you like, then put a twist on it.
example: My FI and I love D&D. We have characters that we’ve played (either online or in life) and I took his character’s main weapon and my character’s ‘calling card’/alias and made a logo for our wedding. (the logo has now become more than just for the wedding, it’s now our family’s “logo”/sigil.)

We made ours unique by looking for lots of ideas from the internet that were different from things that are commonly done in weddings in our area, simple things like incorporating paper cranes, having program scrolls, rubber stamping my invites and envelopes, DIYing a lot of things made the wedding seem so unique, people are still raving about the little details and people are still using the fans I made!! It makes me so happy
Basically I think the little details make it unique

@Zinzerena: Ooh, I’m with you on TV shows.. I could totally incorporate soming about the wedding being legen.. wait for it.. dary! :] Thanks for the tip.
@bells: I’ll be DIYing a bunch, so those special little things will help. I’ll keep my eyes open for more stuff, though.

@brighteyedgirl: If it helps, I also used guitar picks in the bouts and plan on attaching one to my bouquet (my FI plays and teaches).
I also figured out how to sneak a little star trek into the wedding, too! YAY!!! (and I doubt ANYONE will see it coming, lol)
Once you figure out what you guys like/love, it’s pretty easy to use it in some way. If you need any ideas, you can always just send me a PM. 🙂 I’m full of geeky/nerdy ideas 😉

I wouldn’t stress too hard yet. Only because I have said this over and over and little by little things came to me out of the planning process. I think if I sat down and tried at the beginning it would have seemed forced.
