1 - Getting married on the beach: a dream come true

Nothing says 'magical' like exchanging vows with your feet in the sand and the sound of lapping water in the background. A waterfront wedding offers a romantic setting and a relaxing atmosphere. Opt for an intimate ceremony at sunset to make the moment even more spectacular. Consider a dress code with airy, light clothing that suits the environment. Book a beautiful wedding location on the water , and you don't always have to go to the coast for that. How convenient!

2 - A festival theme wedding: celebrate love in a big way

Transform your wedding into a mini festival, complete with live music, food trucks and colorful decorations. Create different 'stages' or zones with activities that suit your interests, such as a chill-out area, a dance floor, or even a silent disco. The festival bracelets can serve as unique invitations or thank you gifts for guests. This idea is perfect for couples who love music, dancing and a casual atmosphere.

Let's face it, renting a few food trucks is much more exciting than a boring dinner, isn't it?

Consider using second-hand or rented decorations and clothing to reduce waste. An ecological wedding is not only good for the planet, but also a powerful statement of your values.
