What makes a wedding special? That is the question. In a world in which everyone registers their everyday lives in social media, soon-to-be-married couples definitely feel the struggle of making, and documenting, their most special day. Everyone seems wedding-crazy nowadays, with the average cost of a wedding in England around £27,000 and £38,000 in London. As recently noted, weddings have become some sort of social media racefio who throws the biggest party, which dress is the prettiest, who has the best entertainment, in summary: who does it better. In search for originality, this is how couples in 2017 are trying to achieve uniqueness.

1. Drone wedding photography

Didn’t know this was a thing? Then now you do. Dronesaferegister.org.uk guarantees professional drone pilots who could take amazing pictures and videos of your most special day. Drone technology has become increasingly popular, as the flying devices can capture amazing panoramic pictures from above. To hire a drone and its respective operator could cost from £150 to £2000. It’s not easy business either as not everyone can pilot a drone easily, plus proper insurance is needed. So, consider it like a wedding photographer, but fancier.

2. Taco Bars and Canape pairings


Say goodbye to the boring, traditional, three-course dinners; taco bars and canape pairs are in! Guests can fill their tacos with filling of their choice, which could avoid the stress of the plate delivery and serve as a great conversation point. Pinterest has seen a raise in Taco Bars searches of 142% in the course of the year.

Canape pairings are another popular thing at the moment. Created by Peter Callahan’s and published in his book, Bite by Bite, they are pairs of individual canapes and small glasses of wine, cocktails and beer. Cute and delicious!

2. Dripping and alternative cakes

Tall cakes with melted chocolate beautifully dripped from the top are certainly aesthetic goals. The popularity of ‘drip-cakes’ has recently risen becoming one of the most popular Pinterest searches (up to 437%)

But for those ones sick of the fruit cakes and Victorian sponge, there are a number of creative alternatives out there. A woman from Birmingham ditched the cake completely and went for four massive pork piesbaked by Craig Finch. Another couple created a pyramidof different doughnuts flavours.

4. Animals

Cute dogs carrying the rings and now…llamas? Yes, a company in Oregon gives couple the opportunity to have adorable llamas dressed as bride and groom in their wedding. As stated on their website: 'Our animals are “pros” when it comes to parties and special events- always decorated to compliment, our llamas can easily handle all ages, and any size of crowd! More than just “entertainment”, we provide a unique interactive experience for your guests, that most have never experienced before, and smiles that will last forever!'

And remember guys, we're only four months into 2017. Who knows what the rest of the year will bring...
