10 Unique Wedding Ideas for 2020

25 June, 2019

As we prepare to say goodbye to 2016 and welcome in the new year, we've put together some ideas to make your 2017 wedding one-of-a-kind.

1. Wedding Guest Drop Box

Your guest book doesn’t have to be made of paper, or even be a book at all. Have your guests write their wishes on small wooden hearts and drop them in a box for a unique, eye-catching alternative.


2. Virtual Reality Wedding Video

Strap on your headset and re-live your day in three dimensions with a 360 degree wedding video. Not only a unique keepsake for the bride and groom, but also a great way for overseas guests to experience the day if they couldn’t attend.


3. Food Bar

A great way to get your guests excited about the food is to offer an interactive food bar. From fruit to cheese or even donuts, the options are limited only by your imagination.


4. Drink Coasters

For a fun, functional and affordable way to keep your guests dancing and their drinks on the table, provide some personalised coasters for their drinks.


5. Wedding App

With features such as RSVPs, event information, gift registries and photo sharing, using a wedding app is not only a novel way to engage and entertain your guests, but one that will also keep them organised.


6. Wedding Photo Cut Out

Add a bit of fun to your photos with a photo cut out.


7. Wedding Thongs

Say goodbye to aching feet in the evening hours; Wedding Thongs (or “flip-flops” if you’re not Australian..) are a fun way to get your guests and bridal party – especially those in heels - off their seats and onto the dancefloor.


8. Individual Wedding Cakes

As either a unique alternative to a traditional wedding cake or as the perfect take-home treat for guests, mini wedding cakes are sure to be the talk of the party.


9. Live Wedding Painter

There’s a wide variety of options when it comes to capturing the memories of your wedding day. Aside from the usual photographer and videographer, there’s drones, Go Pros, polaroids and even virtual reality.  But for a truly unique way of preserving the memory of your wedding, is there anything better than a piece of fine art?


10. A Unique Wedding Venue

A unique wedding calls for a unique reception venue and, for those planning to tie the knot in Perth, our very own Crystal Swan should be at the top of your list. With panoramic views of the Swan River and the city from our iconic glass function vessel, a cruise down the river provides an unforgettable experience and one that always leaves guests talking for years to come.

  • Thanks heaps for all your help with the year 11 river cruise! The event went very well and all the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks for being EXTREMELY accommodating with all the requests coming through and providing a night of memories for the students. You guys make a great team, and provide exceptional service before and during the event, which makes it even more memorable on our behalf as you made it easy for planning purposes at our end.

  • Hi Patsy,

    Ensure all the Staff and Peter receives my sincere thanks. We have been discussing and think it’s the best Christmas Party we have had in 10 years, and we know how to party!

    Staff were great and gave it a nice relaxing feeling. Everyone had a blast.

  • I held a corporate dinner event on the Crystal Swan in late Oct 2017 and can say the event far exceeded our expectations. From the planning stages, through to set-up and finally service/catering at the event - we were impressed! The staff and crew are wonderful, the food is not your typical "boat" food (so don't be afraid!) and the boat itself is really quite unique and allows fantastic views to the city and surrounds. I would book with Crystal Swan again and recommend them as a venue option no questions asked. Thanks again Patty, Tam, Peter, Skipper & crew!
