“We want our wedding to look like everyone else’s’… Said no one, ever. Every love story is unique and your wedding should reflect that. If you’re in the market for some unconventional wedding ideas, search no further and scroll to view some of our favourites.
1. UNIQUE TRANSPORT
Want to make an impressive entrance or a dramatic getaway? Your choice of wedding transport can really set the tone for the entire ceremony, so it’s important you pick your transport wisely. Once upon a time limousines and vintage cars were all the rage, but forget the traditional wedding cars and opt for perhaps a motorbike if you’re an edgy duo or sail away from the venue in style in a speedboat, it will be reminiscent of a James Bond movie!
2. QUIRKY PHOTOS
Everyone loves a bit of photo fun!
At Waterfront Southport Hotel there are so many quirky photo opportunities, so strike a pose and grab your guys and girls… Wedding photography doesn’t always have to be serious!
3. CREATE A BESPOKE PLAYLIST
The reception is usually guests’ favourite part of any wedding. Not to say that the ceremony isn’t tear-jerkingly beautiful but let’s be honest — who doesn’t love a good party? Ask your guests to submit their requests on your RSVP card or via email, compile all the requests and then your DJ can include them in your setlist for all of your guests to enjoy.
4. SIGNATURE DRINKS
Why should you settle for the standard drinks on your wedding day? Take your wedding reception to the next level by adding some fun and personal touches that are guaranteed to go down well with your guests! Perhaps you want to come up with your own name for your favourite drinks or add a name tag that features you and your other half. You could even create your own personalised glasses that your guests can take home with them as a lovely memento to remember the day.
5. COMFY SHOES
You shouldn’t have to suffer with sore feet on your big day! If the thought of spending your special day in high heels fills you with dread, why not wear some comfy trainers under your dress? With the right dress your shoes will be hidden, and no one will suspect a thing!
