  • 12. Mixed Gender Wedding Parties
  • Who says the bridal party has to be all women? and that the groomsmen have to be men? It is becoming more popular to have mixed-gender wedding parties, stepping forward the era of the bridesman, the man of honour, the best ladies, or why not the groomsmaids!
  • 13. Pets Included
  • Pets are part of the family so why not include them in the wedding? Incorporate your pets in your big day, have them walk down the aisle with you, or have them pose with you for the photos. There are even professionals who you can hire to attend your wedding just to look after your pets while you enjoy your day.
  • 14. Unique QR Codes
  • Most people own a smartphone these days, and very rarely send post, why not opt for a QR code on your invites for guests to RSVP? or use them on the day itself to collect all your guest’s own photos.
  • 15. Celebrant Led Ceremonies
  • Many couples are choosing to have a more personal ceremony that is unique to them as a couple, this is where a celebrant-led ceremony is the perfect solution. Although these are not legally binding, many couples go to the registry office before the ‘wedding’ to complete the legal part, then enjoy their big day the way they want and exchange their vows using a celebrant.
  • 16. Wedding Weekenders
  • Exclusively hire a venue for the full weekend, inspired by the American tradition of a rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding and a farewell breakfast the following day. Many couples are choosing to extend the celebrations beyond one day.
