Nobody said it would be easy. Wedding planning is tricky, especially if you want to do something a little out of the ordinary. These 30 ideas may not seem particularly conventional, and not all of them will suit your theme, but hopefully it’s given you a deeper insight into what’s available and just how much creative freedom you have.

If you’re still at a loss consider calling a wedding planner and asking for advice. While they will significantly boost your costs, they could have a bunch of ideas that you would have otherwise not considered. In addition, many will have connections with other local businesses, meaning you could lower costs in other departments.

Fundamentally, your wedding is a day for you and your spouse and should represent your personalities and interests; nobody else’s. Never give in to pressure or settle for entertainment that doesn’t inspire you. When it comes to weddings there are no boundaries. Even if you don’t have the funds for an extravagant ceremony there are plenty of ways to create an event of equal beauty with a low-no budget if you can think outside the box.
