Weddings are occasions filled with tradition, but that doesn’t mean you need to follow the rules. Highly personalized weddings that reflect the personalities and interests of the couple are the hottest trend. Below are five ways you can ditch bland and boring wedding traditions and replace them with a fun new twist:

 

Replace Your Guest Book

The old-fashioned guest book is dull and predictable. Memorialize the day and all your amazing guests with something more personalized. If you’re passionate about travel, have guests sign a globe. Collect fingerprints instead of signatures. Have guests drop notes or well wishes into an origami “wishing well” for you read later. The sky’s the limit!

 

Update the Cake

Traditional tiered wedding cakes can be fun, but you don’t have to commit to one. Cupcakes arranged artistically on stands are as beautiful and easier to eat. Pancakes arranged in layers make a great cake alternative for a breakfast brunch. You can even skip the cake entirely and offer candy, pie, ice cream or any other dessert you prefer. As long as the product is artistically arranged and reflects your personality, no one will miss the cake.

 

Think Outside the Box with Flowers

Your wedding flowers don’t have to be traditional options like white roses or pastel hydrangeas. Pick out flowers that suit your preferences and color scheme. If you’d prefer, you can skip them entirely and replace traditional arrangements with candles, lanterns, origami shapes or anything else that strikes your fancy.

 

Bridesmaid Dresses Don’t Have to Match

Instead of going through the stress of picking out a style of dress that will look good on every member of your wedding party, let your bridesmaids wear dresses they already own. Offer a few guidelines, such as a color palette or general style, and enjoy the variety and personality of your unique wedding party.

 

Cut Out the Down Time

Restless guests are prone to over-drinking and boredom. Find ways to trim “down time” in the day’s events, especially between the ceremony and reception. You can cut down on delays by taking photos before the ceremony and having the ceremony and reception at the same location. Be sure to provide plenty of refreshments to guests as soon as the ceremony is over to keep the energy levels high.

 

From decorations to food to the ceremony itself, every aspect of your wedding can be personalized to suit your tastes. Don’t get hung up on tradition; trudge boldly forward to create a special day you’ll remember forever.
