5 Unconventional Wedding Ideas That Are Anything But Typical

Weddings are often depicted as events filled with themes of ivory, receptions in fancy hotels and decorated with bouquets of the bride’s favourite flowers.

But what if the bride hates flowers? Didn’t anyone ever think of that? Luckily, there are many unconventional wedding ideas that have been planned by genius wedding planners already.

Check out some of these unique wedding ideas and hopefully, be inspired to plan your own unorthodox wedding.

If you’re willing to bet on the weather and hold an outdoor wedding reception, here’s an idea for you –  a wedding picnic! Don’t worry, you won’t be the first nor the last to hold this type of wedding reception. Gilmore Girls star Sean Gunn married Natasha Halevi in an outdoors reception that’s so like a wedding picnic.

What are you waiting for? Plan that gorgeous outdoor wedding (in your head) now!

Didn’t get enough of the Avengers this year? Throw a Wakanda-inspired wedding for you and your guests. You could design your bridal clothes to be similar to the ones in Black Panther.

3. For the magical couple – Harry Potter wedding

They say the magic of Hogwarts never leaves you, and if you’re both fans of the wizarding series, who says you can’t have the magical wedding of your dreams? PS: You could send the invitations as Hogwarts letters (unfortunately, we doubt that our Muggle owls can deliver them properly).

4. For the bride who hates flowers – a wedding cactus or succulent bouquet

If you’re a prickly character and owning it, there is no harm in getting a cactus bouquet for your wedding. The only downside is your bridesmaids probably won’t want to catch this bouquet – but hey, it’s your wedding.

5. Say “no” to the dress and wear biker shorts instead

Before you dismiss this as an anti-wedding thing, check out Zoe Kravitz’s pre-wedding day bralette, biker shorts and crochet cover-up combo, We’re in love! If you can pull off this style, you’re definitely the belle of the ball.
