heavenlyflower :  that’s exactly the reason we decided to make the first dance private. The idea of people standing around gawking at us just didn’t seem fun or comfortable. We also figured guests wouldn’t really mind missing the first dance anyway. Again, they’re welcome to wander over and watch if they want, but I’m pretty sure everyone will pick food and drink over watching us sway back and forth for a couple minutes. It’s a win-win.

we had afternoon tea as our reception meal, and big stack of doughnuts as our wedding cake. neither is unique but different to your traditional wedding. We also had a hog roast in the evening and a candy buffet. My dress was non traditional (blush with red and white flowers), the groom wore electric blue and we didnt have a bridal party or a first dance. so I guess we did do quite a few different things!

Not super unique, since plenty of people do it. But we’re having a surprise wedding.

sassybeee :  We’re doing something similar – we’re planning on doing a “shot dance” in lieu of a dollar dance.. so everyone that wants to dance with us like a typical dollar dance, will get a shot instead of giving us money. We saw this at a friend’s wedding, where they gave everyone that contributed to the dollar dance a shot.. but we figured we’d just do the shot instead of people giving us cash. Just wanted to do something fun instead of making our guests feel like they needed to pay for a 15 second dance with us.

We are doing something unique with our ceremony music too! Best man is a pretty talented guitarists so we are going to have him play on his bass guitar while we walk down the aisle!

His parents are both pastors, so we’re having them co-officiate the ceremony. And his extended family owns an orchard, so the favors will be jars of apple butter from the orchard.  His parents don’t know about that, so I think they’ll be pretty surprised!

VictorianChick :  

Local second hand shops. Real finds you can come across. Know what your looking for. The goblets my honey and I literally lucked out on one Saturday and loaded up on some beautiful pieces. Carnival glass sets. All kind of beautiful milk glass. So excited to put the setting together. I’m doing 60 yr plus books with beautiful tea cup flower centerpieces on a few tables. Other tables will include the FTD vases, baby breath and blush roses. The rest will be a mixture of large milk glass vases and small mason jar candles. 

 

Each table will also have a small candy dish with kisses for the guest. The table numbers will be vintage pieces of rose wallpaper with the number stamped on them. Seating chart will be a beautiful mirrored piece with each table listed. Can’t wait! Lots of time put into this. After I’m planning on starting a vintage wedding rental site for locals.

we are reading our vows to each other with out seeing each other (back to back) i just feel like its a more personal thing and we want to have that between us (and possibly the photographer lol) Nothing unheard of but i thought it would be really special. then just have the priest / officiant do the regular ceremony.

We’re doing our vows in secret and not during the ceremony. We’re also (hopefully) going to have a ring BEAR.  an actual bear like in how i met your mother. the venue is a farm and they rescued 3 bears and they LOVE the spot light. so fingers crossed on that one. For our unity ceremony, we’re going to light a bonfire. It’s not that unique or different but we’re doing pine cones instead of actual flowers. we’re super excited 🙂

Probably no unusual in the slightest but I’ll list our quirks.

We are holding our ceremony in the banqueting hall of a tudor building. Think Knights suits of armour with spears on the walls, black and white boarded walls. Big inglenook fireplace on one side.

We are not having a sitdown plated meal, just canapés incorporated wih cocktail hour to lengthen it a bit. 

The band we have at our evening reception is learning our first dance song to play it live for us.

My partner is Thai so we are having a Buddhist ceremony here in Thailand (where we live). Should be interesting especially for my guests who are flying over from the UK.

Im in Vero beach, fl. On the east coast. Definitely will post some pics soon. I love bringing back the history of this country the most. We as a couple enjoy restoring old campers, boats, and vehicles as a hobby in our relationship so wanting to bring that into our celebration was no thought. Plus everything back then had so much character.
