1.Unusual forms of wedding transport. Choosing a slightly different form of transport can provide a little bit of extra fun for the bridal party and will look great in the photos. Think arrival by boat, a classic London style bus, an American yellow school bus or a horse and cart. Image by Lovers Lane Photography
2.Signature cocktails on arrival. A signature cocktail is always a great party starter and the bar will be able to work with you in the lead up to make something you both love that you can name yourself. Refreshing, fruity and often sweet, cocktails make for delicious drinks in the warmer months while something dark and moody can provide a little warmth and comfort in the cooler months. They’re a great little conversation starter and once everyone has had their welcome drinks they can move onto celebratory champagne, wine or beer. Image via Popsugar Food
3.Unconventional bridal waltz songs. We love it when couples choose something a little different that they feel best represents them as a couple. We recently had a couple choose a Calvin Harris song for their first dance and it really got the party started, it set the mood for the evening and in no time at all everyone was up on the dance floor!

4.Music. You’ll be surprised at the range of music your band actually knows how to play, and it’s an amazing sound to hear a string quartet play the music of your favourite Chet Faker song. If you have a song that’s special to you but you don’t think it’s within your band’s genre, just ask them; often they will be able to play an alternative version of it for you that’s suitable to the instrument set they have for your wedding! This can be a great idea for cocktail hour or the period of time the guests arrive at the reception before the bride and groom arrive as it slowly sets the tone for what’s to come and gets people in the mood to kick off the party!

5.Cheese cake. If you’re not a massive sweet tooth, a cake made of cheese could be your perfect alternative to cake! Image by O’Malley Photographers
