Celebrate Loving Day with a difference

Tying the Knot

As more and more wedding trends emerge, there seems to be an increase in the number of ‘non-traditional’ brides and grooms.

Next month will see people all over the world commemorate Loving Day - but with many brides-to-be looking to make their special day unique, Tying the Knot advises: why not try an alternative wedding list?

Marking the anniversary of the Supreme Court of America’s decision to disband all anti-miscegenation laws in 1967 (legislation that made mixed race marriages illegal), Loving Day is a day with a difference – and what better way for couples to show the love by creating a wedding gift list that offers something completely different.

A spokesman from Tying the Knot said: “As more and more wedding trends emerge, there seems to be an increase in the number of ‘non-traditional’ brides and grooms. Instead of spending the weekend browsing department stores for the latest cutlery, several couples are requesting unconventional gifts such as donations to charity, or funds towards their dream home or honeymoon.”

Other unusual requests include cash and vouchers, and with more and more couples daring to be different, some gift ideas have even included activities such as balloon rides or shark diving. However, with many brides-to-be looking to save money in the run up to the big day, couples have suggested gift ideas such as unusual wedding venues. Manchester, for example, offers the opportunity to exchange vows at the Manchester Art Gallery; while Birmingham allows hobby lovers the chance to get married at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre.

“As the most important event a couple will ever experience, it’s important that their big day is memorable – for all the right reasons,” the spokesman added. “While some may follow the route of a traditional wedding, there’s a huge market in trying new things. Ranging from venues to wedding jewellery, ultimately it’s up to the couple how they choose to celebrate their commitment. Our comprehensive guide to leading wedding suppliers is sure to cater to a huge range of tastes, offering services such as wedding caricatures, candy buffets – and even crystal trees to dress your venue to give it the wow factor!”
