Below, you'll find 48 fabulously original ideas that none of your friends have done. Guests will be pleasantly surprised, friends will be jealous, and your wedding day will be one to remember. Keep the traditions that you love, and let your day veer off the beaten path elsewhere. If you can't do without the unity candle ceremony, keep it, but make your send-off spectacular. If your church won't let you perform a send-off, make your day unforgettable by sending out wow-worthy thank you notes. Get creative with your dessert table ideas, your ceremony programs, the save the dates, or the lighting. However you choose to stand out, make it fun and make it you.

Start the day off right with unique wedding ceremony ideas to knock the guests off their feet.

Programs that serve a dual purpose? A bouquet like none other? Shock your guests from the get-go, and they'll be ready for an utterly original event.

Continue the shock factor with a reception for the books. Present decor that has never been seen, have a dessert table that no one's ever thought to have, and place brilliant place cards at everyone's seat to keep the fun coming. From the first detail to the final goodbye, surprise your guests with devilishly daring details. Absolutely every part of your celebration can be unique with these creative wedding ideas no one else has thought of.
