Put a personal stamp on your big day with these new takes on old traditions.

A Gif that keeps giving
If you love the idea of a photo booth, but don’t know what you’ll do with a stack of printed Polaroids, try Pixta . The “Party Starter” package comes with
a selfie station that ensures guests can create, share, and save GIFs with personalised backgrounds. But not to worry: More traditional guests can still print images on the spot.
A Head For Fashion
Brides who aren’t so hot on a traditional veil might try a few alternatives – like a flower crown, Grecian headband, or a retro-chic headpiece to pull the look together. Whether you’re looking for a short veil or a trendy crown, Olivia The Wolf has a range of designs to suit every bride.
Milk the Experience
Floral centrepieces bring tables to life, but traditional vases can be a bit of a bore. Take a tip from your DIY friends and fill charming Kowloon Dairy jars with fresh blooms for a retro homage to Hong Kong. Don’t forget to return them for recyling afterwards though!
Find A Grey Area
If the typical white poufy gown isn’t for you, not to worry – grey wedding dresses are sashaying their way into fashion. Styled perfectly by wedding gown designer Hayley Paige , a soft slate hue adds a contemporary twist on expectations.
The Couple That Stags Together
Gone are the days of solo stag and hendos – instead of going your separate
ways, why not celebrate together with all your besties? Couples are replacing
traditional “last hurrah” outings in favour or joint trips away or junk parties.
