I’m hoping to get some ideas on my non traditional wedding set up as I am seriously lacking in inspiration!
I’m having a private legal ceremony with family here in the uk followed several weeks later by a destination wedding in Tuscany with 35 of our closest friends. It’s really important to me that the destination wedding feels like a ‘wedding’ rather than just a party…I strongly feel that this is my actual ‘wedding’ rather than the legal ceremony, and it’s my only chance to do weddingy stuff like wear a big dress, carry a bouquet, have speeches and bridemaids, etc. HOWEVER, Fiance feels that he could not buy in to a traditional symbolic blessing by an officiant as if its not the legal ceremony it isn’t meaningful to him…I think he’s concerned that it will feel like a sham.
So I’m looking for non traditional, unconventional ideas of ways to start my wedding day without an actual ceremony…something special without being overly sentimental as we are not particularly demonstrative pepple. All ideas welcome!
