Wacky Wedding Venues

I was feeling a bit quirky today, so it seemed logical to come up with some wacky ideas for wedding venues. After all, sometimes, you need to see something totally off the wall to be able to get those creative juices going!

One of the ideas that I stumbled upon was a wedding in a bowling alley. For all of you avid bowlers, this would be wonderful theme idea!

Check out this article "Bowling alley wedding: How creativity is priceless in a bad economy."

Or how about attending camp? This couple had an entire weekend of camp activities leading up to their wedding ceremony. It's a fun-filled event that can get everybody involved. Also perfect for acquainting the two sides of the bride and groom. Check out "The Bride Wore Bug Spray."

Do wild animals and an African safari interest you? Then perhaps you can have a wedding in a zoo. The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical garden features the perfect wedding location!

A Wedding by a Golf Course TPC Valencia

If you're an avid golfer, you will most likely be familiar with TPC golf courses, which brings me to today's idea for a wedding by a golf course. The TPC in Valencia is one example! You can have a breathtaking golf course wedding overlooking the beautiful Santa Clarita valley. The venue itself can accomodate parties as small as 40 to as larger 250 or more guests. You can even have a lovely ceremony wedding by the golf course. They also have menu packages for brunch and breakfast so it's great when you're watching your budget. Check out the place:

Real Life Artwork for your Wedding

I was at the dentist's office yesterday and stumbled upon my favorite magazine Dwell where I found a company called CanvasPop! It's basically a cool way of putting any photo into a life-sized canvas. They offer various dimensions and layouts for the canvas. Best of all, you get to customize the look yourself using their various online tools. I say that this is a great way to personalize your wedding with a life-size shot of your engagement pics. Or how about as a lovely way of decorating your guest book table. Check 'em out at!

Ball gown wedding dress from Pronovias

I must be a hopeless romantic for ball gown wedding dresses have always been my favorite! And the 2011 collection from Pronovias is a must-see. They're all gorgeous, but my absolute favorite is this one (Felisa):

Just imagine a romantic church wedding in a historic church as your setting. Or an elegant garden location in a botanical garden. Then consider bridesmaid dresses in a summer color like aqua or apricot! The groom is all dressed up in an ascot tie, while your groomsmen are handsomely attired in tuxedos. It's definitely a wedding fit for a princess!

Alternatives to Bridesmaid Dresses

Today, I am looking beyond traditional. In fact, it's all about going out of the box and unconventional. When you think about bridesmaid dresses, you probably won't consider prints and florals, but they can be just as pretty! Perfect as an alternative to traditional bridesmaid dresses, which have no printed patterns at all. So, if you want to try something totally different consider these dresses that I found at Nordstrom's:

Paisley dress by Ralph Lauren

Halter dress by Donna Morgan - me like a lot!! so pretty!

Cutout neck cotton sheath dress by Arthur S. Levine

And one you find that perfect outfit, dress it up! Add a pretty accessory like a bangle. Match it up with some lovely shoes and end finish it up with an elegant purse. Just remember to add accessories!
