Many of you may have already had the pleasure of being a guest to one of many weddings planned for the summer or you may even be a prospective bride or groom for your wedding this year. Apart from the classic and traditional memories of the day including the entrance of the bride, the first dance and the obligatory embarrassing speech by Father of the Bride and that’s all before the evening begins. The small details are what I notice at weddings; here are some unique touches and alternatives to wedding classics that I have seen:
1) A “Cheese” Cake – not the New York style (although that is an option) but instead of layers of sweet options, this is for those with a more savoury tooth. It also serves as an additional evening food option and supermarket’s such as Mark’s and Spencer’s sell them for as little as £95!
2) Centrepieces – if you decide that you don’t want a large flower arrangement for your centre pieces on the tables, there are plenty of ideas that will create the subtle or dramatic effect that you want to create. I recently saw a cupcake centre piece shaped as if they were roses, this is an excellent sweet treat idea perfect for the kids and adults!
3) Boozy Baths – I took this inspiration from a recent holiday in Mexico where they had a Moet & Chandon champagne bath on multiple theme nights (yes I did want to take this home!) If your drinks reception is going to be outside, a beer bath or barrow could be created by filling it with ice and your favourite beers. Likewise you can fill it with mini bottles of prosecco or even soft drinks.
I hope these alternatives to wedding classics have inspired you to put a twist on your upcoming wedding or event.
