That is so cute that your grandmother is going to be a flower girl! Wish mine was still alive, I adore that idea ๐Ÿ™‚

I will not be having a traditional evening wedding with dancing..we’re doing a brunch, with a string & harp duo playing classical music in the background and lawn games in the garden. Also not doing any toasts.

I would say the most unusual thing we did was nothing.

No priest (both families are catholic), no grand march, no plated dinner (cocktail style with a station to ensure enough food), no bouquet or garter toss, etc.

It was amazing and we got SO many compliments.

ps- LOVE grandma as the flower girl!

We are doing almost nothing traditional. We want a short ceremony and then a party – we really don’t want anything “wedding” – we do have a bridal party, but we both have men and women standing up for us, we are having a cocktail reception, no speeches/toasts, no garter/bouquet toss (which I think are rather crass), baked doughnuts from a local bakery instead of a cake, no announcements of anything – really nothing that goes on at weddings, execept the ceremony, eating, drinking and dancing ๐Ÿ™‚

chrissybee :  The most non-traditional thing at our wedding (sauna and ice swimming) is a modification of a family tradition.. So I don’t know if that’s really traditional (for my family) or really non-traditional ๐Ÿ˜€

Our wedding is going to be kind of strange… ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a toss up between these two…

  • We have a flower man in our wedding party
  • If the logistics work out, my dog will be walking me down the aisle

That’s adorable!

We’re doing a surprise wedding. We’ll ask our guests to meet us for an engagement party/fancy dinner a couple months before, and then drop off formal invitations the night before for them to find in the morning.

Our mothers are going to be our ring bearers. Partially because we don’t have one and partially because we don’t necessarily trust our Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man to remember. Haha. Joking (kind of).

We wanted a way to include the mothers in the ceremony and felt it was a good way to include them. My mother will be holding my fiance’s ring and my Future Mother-In-Law will be holding mine.

Not too unique, but we don’t have a flower girl, and we’re having a Husky ring bearer. I’m hand painting my veil, with gold leaf and acrylic (saw it on BHLDN and I’m an artist so I thought why not). Our ceremony will have a sciencey reading from Carl Sagan and a female secular officiant. No “here comes the bride” we’ll have a violinist playing some Bach. We won’t have that garter stuff, too gross. But will have the bouquet toss.

chrissybee :  Skinny dipping has been a thing at family weddings since my sister got married 15 years ago and we decided to follow tradition, even though my husband and I got married in winter. Also, skinny dipping really isn’t the norm that my husband’s British family were used to ๐Ÿ˜€
