Anyone can have a reception hall for their wedding. So why not have your wedding somewhere a little more special, like in a forest, on the beach, or even in your backyard?
Just because you’re doing something that everyone else does, doesn’t mean you have to have the same boring wedding that everyone else has.
Save the Date Cards
Who says romance has to be so cut and dry? As long as you're getting married to the person of your dreams, does it really matter if you send out save the date cards, anyway?
Save the date cards are just an expense you could do without. If you are feeling anxious about your date, we'd rather suggest sending out your wedding invites a few weeks earlier.
An Engagement Shoot
Every social media feed on the planet has been inundated with a barrage of engagement pictures showing absolutely shocked brides-to-be.
They look so surprised that they're being asked for their perfectly manicured hands in marriage. We find ourselves rolling our eyes every time we come across these sickeningly adorable shoots.
Expensive Limo Drives or Carriages
For people of means, weddings have always been an occasion for an extravagant display of wealth. Sometimes it seems like every detail in these lavish weddings depicts a place and time that's somehow rooted in an alternate reality.
And limousines do nothing to dispel that notion. If we're being totally honest, we'd suggest saving the money you'd spend on renting a fancy car.
Sticking to Wedding Colors
This could be added to the ever-growing checklist of “things you didn’t know you needed to care about." Once you start preparing for your wedding, your vendors or wedding planner will insist you pick a color scheme for your wedding.
Not only is this unnecessary but it means you have to stick to these colors, which can be expensive or just a nuisance when planning your big day.
