Who says your wedding day has to be traditional?? Whether you’re having a bigger wedding with all your friends or eloping just the two of you, you can easily add your own unique touches to make the day feel authentic to you. Just like Lindsay ROCKED this black dress in this moody Washington-inspired elopement, here are 10 ways you can put a non-traditional spin on your wedding or elopement day!

  • of course, wear a non-white wedding dress!

  • morning/brunch wedding instead of evening

  • private ceremony then party with your friends!

  • walk down the aisle together, rather than separately

  • have a dessert other than traditional cake

  • get ready together

  • serve pre-ceremony cocktails and mingle with your guests before you walk down the aisle

  • have your reception first and have an evening ceremony to end the night

  • host a lowkey chill wedding on some family land or your backyard rather than a venue

  • include your pets!
