Breaking the habit with unique quirky weddings

Posted by Categories: Home Ideas

Despite their sentimental value, weddings are often commercialised and subject to a lot of clichés. There is of course a huge industry behind them, which makes it almost impossible for newlyweds to do something that’s never been done before. Most items are mass-produced and ideas are recycled. However, if you don’t want to settle for the ordinary and you want to surprise your guests with something that truly stands out, then there is one option: personalised, creative weddings. Without necessarily requiring a huge budget, these weddings place the emphasis on quirkiness and what makes you…you. On websites like, you can find all the supplies you need for a personalised wedding, from favours and gift bags to boxes and cards. Here are some other ideas for you:

Organising the wedding at home instead of at a restaurant

Booking a restaurant is very expensive and it might not allow you to turn your dream wedding into reality. At home, on the other hand, you aren’t restricted by any rules and you can be as creative as you want. You can rent a marquee and decorate it however you want, at a fraction of the cost. This will allow you to create themes that aren’t normally available in restaurants and also get a more romantic, cosy, personal look.

Homemade table decorations
The wedding industry doesn’t lack classy and beautiful table decorations, but despite their high price tag these aren’t enough if you want to send a personal message. Homemade and personalised table decorations are different. They don’t cost a lot and they help you express your personality as a couple. You can experiment with all sorts of colours, patterns and fonts and turn every table into a unique seating area. The rural theme is very in right now and can be adapted to many situations.

Personalised gift bags

In the UK, it is customary for the couple to show their appreciation for guests by offering them gift bags to remind them of their wedding. The contents of the bag are up to you, depending on what budget you have, but you should go the extra mile and personalise the gift bag. It only costs a couple of pounds per bag and it is an excellent way of keeping the memory of your special day alive. Some couples choose to offer both wedding favours and gift bags, but most of the time either one of these two will suffice.
