The Wedding Notebook continues to be a platform that celebrates couples who dare to be different and think out of the box. These couples are worth mentioning because they took risks and showed us what is possible. Each of them have parents and in laws to deal with; though some might have had limited resources, they chose to focus on their strengths and they were successful. We hope they too will inspire you to overlook your struggles and limitations. To these couples, we say thank you for setting a precedent that countless other bridal couples can emulate.

Story: The 10,000 Red Petals Aisle by Munkeat Photography

First she tackled the great taboo and had all her bridesmaids wearing black. She claimed that everyone looks good in black and we all know she is right. Then she refused to give up on having an entire aisle filled with petals. Taking matters into her own hands, she sourced them from TaoBao and got a good deal. She didn’t compromise and had to sacrifice quite a bit of time, but it was worth it.

Story: A Real Life Story Of Serendipity Remade by Shepherd Portraiture

It is one thing to create a video and quite another to dress and style yourselves so you appear to be from another era. For starters you might not look good in it, and think of what people will say? Honestly though, this wouldn’t look anywhere near as good if this couple hadn’t taken the chance.

Story: A Wedding With A Thousand Guests Planned In Less Than 3 Months by Axioo
