While there are so many noteworthy elements during weddings, the most extradordinary of all is the union of two unique individuals. Whether you met each other at a resturant, were set up on a blind date or you hit the ultimate jackpot through modern online dating, each and every couple heading down the aisle is special. Make the most important day of your life a true reflection of your unique personalities, tastes, preferences and your intertwined lives together by adding unique touches to your wedding day.
Get inspired by these 7 Ways to Make Your Wedding Unique.
While all weddings are beautiful, the most memorable ones are when couples go against the grain of traditional standards and get married in a way that honors their uniqueness.
Incorporate Your Furry Friend
Including your pet in your wedding celebration is one of the easiest ways to make your guests smile and say "aww!" Whether you have your dog act as your ring bearer or simply include your cats or bunnies them in sweet photoshoots, the memories of your furry friends being incorporated into your wedding day will last a lifetime. After all, they are a part of the family and what's more unique than families?
Wear a Colourful Wedding Dress
For fashionista brides that are always on the lookout for the hottest trends and wedding styles, wearing a colorful dress can be a spectacular way to add unique flare to your big day. Not only will this separate your gown from the traditional wedding dresses and make for excellent photographs, but it's also a great way to incorporate more of your personality into your day. If you're style-savvy, consider donning a trendy pink dress like pictured above. And if you really want to be fashion-forward, a Marsala gown would be a fabulous choice.
Food Truck Fare
Anyone that has had a meal from a food truck will likely vouch that it's one of the most memorable meals they've had. While having a food truck serve late night eats to your wedding guests is quite popular, you can make it unique by hiring out your absolute favourite truck. Whether you enjoyed special date nights dining there with your significant other or you just think their fish tacos or their fire stone pizzas are out of this world, this is a great way to add a unique touch to your wedding and will definitely impress guests during your reception.

Instead of having rice or bubbles being thrown and blown your way, have your guests toss beautiful and seed paper confetti as you come down the aisle during your first official walk as newlyweds. Not only is this idea completely unique, but this special tree-free paper is made from recycled biodegradable materials that grows wildflowers when planted. Find out how to make this DIY Confetti Cones plus a free printable here.
Donate Money to a Special Cause
In lieu of spending a small large portion of your wedding budget on favors that are often thrown in the trash, use the money to make a donation to you and your fiance's favourite charity. Whether it's to an animal shelter or used for cancer research, this sentiment is a great way to start your marriage and your guests will appreciate your generosity and compassion. You can also use this opportunity to request that instead of receiving gifts, you'd love if your guests would make any kind of donation as well. Another smart alternative to wedding favors is to take the eco-friendly approach. Seed paper wedding favors are customizable and grow wildflowers when planted. You'll be thrilled to give your beloved wedding guests these unique products that leave behind beauty, not waste.
Even though you know the people you're inviting to your wedding, you might not know the people they bring along with them. Simply write a bunch of fun and interesting facts about yourself and your soon-to-be spouse and place it on the tables for your guests to read during the reception. It's a great way for everyone to get a chance to learn more about you. You can even make this an eco-friendly prize by printing it on seed paper and the winner of a certain wedding game will get to take it home to plant wildflowers!
