Cupid’s Advice:

Your wedding will be one of the best days of your life, so it’s important that everything — from the location and decor to the food and drinks — best represents you and your relationship. Cupid has some ideas on how to make your special day unique:

1. Break from traditions: Sure, there’s nothing like a classic wedding. These ceremonies are timeless and quaintly traditional. But your day is all about you, so you can celebrate it however you’d like! If you would rather add your own touch to the bouquet or garter toss, go for it. Your guests will love the creative spin.

2. Ditch the cake: If you don’t like cake, you don’t have to serve it! Dessert alternatives are super on-trend lately. You can serve cupcakes, order a wall of doughnuts, or even have an ice cream sundae bar. The choices are endless, and the personal touch will be remembered.

3. Get creative with the guestbook: Guestbooks are nice, but realistically speaking, how often do you think you’ll sit down and go through the album? Ditch the book and have something more practical. Buy a coffee table book for your guests to sign, or ask people write down a piece of marriage advice for you. You’ll get more use when you implement a bit of creativity, and you won’t feel like you’re wasting your money on something that’s going to gather dust in your closet.
