As you celebrate your love for each other, you have to channel your creativity as a couple by ensuring that the biggest day of your lives will be fun and exciting for everyone.

Are you tying the knot soon or are you renewing your vows with your beloved? Are you looking for some inspiration to make your wedding as memorable as possible?

Hot Air Balloon Wedding

Ever considered exchanging vows with your partner up in the air? Apparently, you can actually get married in a hot air balloon. Several cities across the US offer such service for couples who want a little dash of adventure on their big day.

Not only will this allow you to see a magnificent view of the city, but it will also keep your adrenaline pumping all throughout the ceremony!

Hot air balloon wedding packages may also include a luxury car service complete with a chauffeur and champagne. The more guests you have, the more hot air balloons you may need.

If you don’t want to get hitched while suspended in the air, a hot air balloon ride can also be a great optional activity for your guests at your destination wedding.

Laid-back Weddings

If you are a low-maintenance couple who wants a fuss-free wedding, going the laid-back route is a popular choice. Long gone are the days where you have to go to a traditional church wedding and throw a massive wedding party.

You can simply throw a wedding in your backyard, local beach, or community garden and make it tenfold more memorable than luxurious weddings by throwing in quirky decors and activities for your guests to try.

With your wedding in a comfortable setting, stylists from Madame Bridal suggest opting for a simple gown that will reflect your laid-back style.

This way, you will be more comfortable walking down the aisle. Make sure to play with different fabrics like lace, beads, and different designs to look as stunning as possible on your big day. 

DIY Photobooths

Recently, more and more couples are opting for DIY photo booths. There’s nothing more charming than letting your guests take photos of your big day on their own by providing them with disposable cameras or polaroid cameras.

Sure, having a professional photographer is super important in ensuring you’ll get the most important moments in your wedding documented, but having your guest take polaroid photos is also one way of seeing how your big day unraveled through their eyes.

Underwater Wedding

Did you know that a wedding in Poland made it to the Guinness World of Records with over 300 people diving to attend the ceremony? For beach bugs and those who love the deep blue sea, one option would be tying the knot underwater.

With this kind of wedding, you’ll have to put on your scuba gear and dive into the sea with your fiancée. An underwater photographer will take mesmerizing shots of your ceremony.

There are already a number of beautiful destinations who offer this type of wedding. You can fly to Bora Bora, Bali, Mexico, Hawaii, and more! If you are worried about bringing along your guests underwater during the ceremony, well, you don’t have to unless you insist.

Typically, guests lounge and wait for you at the beach reception or diving boat while viewing a live feed of your underwater wedding ceremony.

The ceremony can last for about 15 to 25 minutes and you may even spend your honeymoon in underwater hotels. Alternatively, you can also exchange your vows in a submarine. 

Carnival Themed Wedding

Are you a big fan of summer fairs? Or do you want to add a touch of nostalgia to your wedding? A carnival-themed one is a great choice!

You can even throw in ponies, Ferris wheels, booths, and food kiosks for a complete feel of the carnival. You read that right, you can definitely rent a Ferris wheel for you and your guests to try. It’s a surefire hit for both young and old.

Keeping up with wedding gimmicks and trends is one thing, but first, you have to discuss with your partner what you truly both want. Weddings are meant to be personal so make sure to also take into consideration your budget, interest, and personality.
