Looking for UK based places that might support more alternative styling ????

Any alternative brides or wedding plans out there?

I suppose it depends on what you mean by alternative. Our wedding plans differed from the norm but I wouldn’t call it alternative.
I had a black dress, my husband and I walked in together and we had an afternoon tea rather than a sit down meal.
All seemed crazy to some people but wouldn’t say it’s out there x

I'm planning a Halloween themed wedding. Everyone dressed up, costume contest (including a shit costume for anyone who turns up without), legal wedding with 12 guests, blessing by my future father in law in front of 100 guests for the evening do/"actual" wedding, buffet and music.

We're arriving and walking in together. Having an afternoon only reception with gourmet pizza van and cake "shop" for food, giant games for kids and group 1st dance....wouldn't say alternative but not traditional and very chilled out. No matter what way you do it it will be perfect for you x

Fiancés & her son are going to be dancing down the aisle, her disabled daughter and my son are ring bearers, no speeches apart from a quick "thank you all", no table seating names,

Really depends on what you consider Alt.

We had punk on our playlist, afternoon tea for our meal, geek/nerd themed pieces; our cake topper was Admiral Ackbar saying "It's a Trap"

I guess some people might have classed me as an alternative bride as I have tattoos and piercings! But I still wore a champagne dress but had a cape. I had real flower plugs, rose gold and pearl style facial and ear jewellery. My bridesmaids chose what they wanted to wear I just gave them a choice of colours - just happened two picked the same dress. Walked down the aisle to one of my bridesmaids playing Bob Marley's Is This Love and left to Love Roller-coaster by RHCP! We picked the playlist for the entire day and it was all songs we liked, took forever!! My uncle walked me down the aisle We had a silhouette artist for entertainment and that also made for favours. Surprised everyone with our first dance to Love Cats by The Cure. Bacon and veggie sausage sarnies for evening snacks. Our band pulled out some crackers including Tenacious D and Weezer!
