Unique Wedding Ideas

Is your big wedding day just around the corner? Are you wondering what you can do to make your wedding unique?

While it’s certainly fun to incorporate classic traditions into your wedding, you also want your wedding to be unique. How can you make it unique?

Check out this guide to discover the top unique wedding ideas for your big day.

1. Take Song Requests

There’s no doubt that the dance party is the most fun part of your wedding day. To get people more excited about boogying on down, let them have a hand in picking the song list.

Ask your guests to write down their favorite song on the RSVP card. Obviously, you can veto any songs that you absolutely hate. Then, compile all of the song requests into a playlist that you give to the DJ. This way, everyone will get to hear a song they love.

2. Get Creative With the Cake Toppers

Traditional bride and groom cake toppers are so 1990s. Instead of opting for the usual , choose something that goes with the theme or vibe of your wedding, your common interests, or how and where you got engaged.

For example, if you got engaged on the beach, you could have a palm tree or flamingo cake topper.  If you both love a particular football team, you could use a mini version of that team’s helmet.  If you both love the outdoors, you could do a pine cone bride and groom, or do your initials in twigs.

3. Have Fun with the Seating

When it comes to wedding planning, and seating arrangements for the wedding ceremony in particular, most couples decide who will sit in the first few rows, and that’s about the extent of it. For the most part, couples just line up rows of chairs and call it a day.

If you’re looking to make your wedding more unique, you might consider arranging the chairs in a circular fashion. This way, there will be a 360-degree view of what’s going on.

4. Get Creative With Your Cocktail Napkins

Another thing that wedding couples rarely put much thought into when planning? Cocktail napkins.

That’s right, you can even make the cocktail napkins fun and unique if you want to. We suggest printing fun facts about you and your partner on all of your napkins. This can serve as a great conversation starter for guests who don’t know each other very well.

For example, one fun fact could be about where you and your partner met. Another fun fact could be about where you had your first date.

5. Name Your Reception Tables

Naming your reception tables can be a fun way for your guests to get to know you as a couple even more (and it can make it easier for people to keep track of where they’re sitting!)

For example, if you and your partner have done a lot of traveling together, you can name each reception table after a place that the two of you have visited. You can even include a little fun fact next to the table name explaining why you chose it.

For example, if you named one table Italy, your fun fact may be that this is where you first went on vacation together.

6. Set Up a Photo Booth

A photo booth can be a really fun and unique way to take your wedding to the next level.

You can even decorate the photo booth area so it’s on-theme with your wedding. For example, if your wedding theme is rustic, then you can add some hay and barnyard decor to the photo booth area.

The downside to having a photo booth is that while they’re fun, a lot of these pictures end up getting lost in the shuffle. This is why we encourage you to send guests their photos with your thank you cards. This makes the perfect fun little surprise.

7. Choose our Late Night Food Station

If your reception is going late into the night, what better way to send your guests off than with traditional late night comfort foods!

Choose from a Cincinnati favorite, Coney Islands (trust us, they’re delicious!), pizza, sliders, nachos, or even breakfast including biscuits and gravy, bacon and eggs!

8. Paint It!

What better way to capture your special day, than by capturing it on canvas.  Hire an artist and have them do a painting of your wedding day, as it’s happening.  It will be a one of a kind piece of artwork you can hang on your wall and treasure forever!


For a comical twist on “Paint It”, hire a caricature artist to do caricatures for your guests!
