Add some serious quirky-cool to your wedding plans with these sweet suggestions...
Instead of sending a standard RSVP card, make it more personal
Follow the lead of this real-life couple by keeping things truthful (read: hilarious) when it comes to your RSVP card.
Instead of throwing your bouquet... Cut the ribbon!
This is such a sweet idea - attach ribbons to the stem of your bouquet. Hold it above your head and let each woman grab a ribbon; closing your eyes, use scissors to cut each ribbon until there's only one left. The holder of the complete ribbon gets the bouquet!

Instead of standard tissues... Consider personalised napkins and hankies (no, really!)
Dabbing watering eyes - you're not crying, it's hayfever! - has never been more chic.
Instead of a guestbook... Ask your guests to help you create a piece of art!
Think signed Jenga blocks arranged into a sculpture; a colourful thumb print tree; or our favourite - a splash zone painting*!
*Thinking 'WTF is that?' In a nutshell: balloons filled with different paints are positioned in front of a canvas. Guests are asked to throw darts to create a truly unique work of art!
Instead of seeing each other for the first time at the altar... Have a first-look session!
Intimate, emotional and the perfect opportunity to celebrate your soon-to-be newlywed status - plus, it can help keep waiting times down for guests later on, by getting a lot of the photos out of the way early on.
Instead of stunning floral arrangements... Make your tablecentres edible!
Think chocolate roses, fruity displays and tempting treats piled high.
Instead of checking your pets into daycare... Get them involved in your celebration!
Because you love them and they're a huge part of your lives. So why wouldn't they be there? Task one of your bridal party with looking after any four-legged friends - keeping pets away from the canapes might be a mission - and have a plan for what will happen to them once the reception begins: will they go home? Are they allowed to stay overnight at your venue? And so on.
Instead of arming your guests with disposable cameras... Give 'em selfie sticks!
Arm guests with a hashtag to group all the pics together online.
Instead of giving your guests favours... Give 'em IOUs!
This can be a fun opportunity to arrange some meet-ups with your guests after the wedding (for example: you could give some guests an invite to dinner round yours; others, a batch of your famous home-made flapjacks; and so on).
Instead of sore feet on the dancefloor... Arm your guests with flip-flops!
Because it's almost impossible to pull off the perfect Grease-inspired dance-off between your girls and your groom's guys with sore feet - are we right?
