Non-Traditional Wedding Ideas

When it comes to planning for the big day, every couple wants to incorporate an element of originality. These wedding ideas from some of our events stood out to us. These bride and grooms’ one-of-a-kind ideas were loved by their guests! Take some inspiration from these ideas and add personal touches to your wedding day!


Beginning with the march down the aisle, some brides choose to stray from the tradition of having their father accompany them; by choice, or by unfortunate circumstance. Either way, the bride’s walk down the aisle is something that she may have been envisioning for her entire life and is an important piece of the wedding planning puzzle. Our bride, August, was escorted down the aisle by a very important figure in her life – her sister.


Knowing, and remembering, who attends your wedding can be difficult sometimes. This is the sole purpose for having a guest book at your wedding! But a bulky book might not suit your style. There are countless ways to create a guest book that will be fun to display in your home.



There are numerous ways to incorporate personal touches into every aspect of your wedding. Guests truly enjoy seeing bits of your love story throughout the day!  An easy and creative way to incorporate extra unique ideas that go along with your theme would be to create an original card box!



Take a look at this cake stand from Will + Jess’s recent wedding in La Jolla. Their cake sat beautifully atop a piece of vintage luggage which went perfectly with their vintage travel theme!


While a cake stand is another great way to add a unique element to your wedding day, it’s fair to say that not every couple likes cake! If a wedding is a representation of you as a couple, choose a dessert that you both enjoy. Dessert ideas are endless… from pies to candy buffets, even an ice cream truck!




Your wedding will be your own no matter what! Hopefully some of these ideas helped to spark your imagination and inspire you to add personal touches to your special day. We enjoyed each and every one of these weddings and loved the creativity that our brides and grooms decided to add!
