Why Have a Non-Traditional Wedding?


•1 Creativity and Personalization


One of the biggest perks of having a non-traditional wedding is the freedom it creates for personalization and creativity. With non-traditional weddings, couples can incorporate elements that are meaningful to them, such as unique locations, unconventional décor, or unusual themes. These kinds of weddings can be held in locations that are not typically used for weddings, such as museums, art galleries, beaches, mountaintops, the woods, or pretty much anywhere where they can fit. By selecting a unique location, couples can make their wedding day feel like an adventure and create a unique experience for a lifetime.


Having the ability to choose and personalize all aspects of the ceremony and reception by incorporating elements and rituals that are special to them. For example, they can incorporate a friend or family to say a few words or have their pets included in the ceremony. Non-traditional weddings offer couples the ability to express their personalities in ways that traditional weddings can't.





•2 Spend Money On What's Important


Non-traditional weddings provide couples with more flexibility on where to spend their budget, by allocating it where it truly matters to them. Rather than spending a large portion of their budget on a big venue, catering for 100+ people, couples can focus on what's truly important to them. This means that they can invest in a higher quality photographer, and choose a unique location to celebrate who they love the most.

•3 Intimacy and Meaningfulness


Non-traditional weddings are often smaller and therefore more intimate, sometimes no guests are included at all, which can create a more personal and meaningful feeling. This can also provide a more relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, where they can truly enjoy each other's company, without feeling the pressure of friends, family, and formalities. Having your special day just for you and the one you love the most, is what weddings should be, why not do it your way.
