3 Offbeat Wedding Planning Services You Didn't Know You Needed

wedding-planning-outdoorjpgA lot wedding planning checklists contain helpful but similar information. If you’re in the midst of organizing your nuptials, you’ve probably come across many of the same tips on where to find the ideal venue for your reception or why you should set up a wedding website or how to save on diamond bridal ring sets.

But even if you are becoming a planning pro, you probably haven’t seen any of these unusual wedding services. Different? Definitely. Necessary? You be the judge.

Wedding Planning in the Modern Age

Sunny Skies Guaranteed

Planning an outdoor wedding can be a stressful business, specifically because there is no way to be 100% sure the weather will cooperate with your plans. But what if you could get a guarantee of perfect weather for your big day? That’s exactly what Oliver’s Travels does - by actually controlling the weather in what sounds like a description of a science-fiction film:

We can now offer our customers a ‘cloud-bursting’ service that can 100% guarantee fair weather and clear skies for your wedding day! Currently available to customers organising a destination wedding in France (though we’re looking to expand to the UK and Italy if it takes off), the service employs the talents of pilots and meteorologists and takes over three weeks to plan, and uses silver iodide to ‘seed’ the clouds – essentially giving the water vapour something to condense around to produce rain. Costs start from £100,000, which is a fair old whack of cash! But then again, you can’t put a price on perfection right?

A New Best Friend

You may have already hand-selected your wedding party from close friends and family members. But what if you love your nearest and dearest but aren’t sure about how helpful they’ll be on your wedding day? Do you have a bridesmaid you can trust to be your right-hand woman when you need her the most? If no one comes to mind, Bridesmaid for Hire might be the wedding planning service you need. Choose from four different packages, and enlist help on everything from organizing RSVPs and planning the bachelorette party to helping you pick out bridal ring sets and standing by your side at the altar.

Better Than Human

If you aren’t sure who you want to officiate your wedding, or if you are in search of a ring bearer who won’t lose the matching wedding bands on the way up the aisle, you should look beyond the humans you know. Robots aren’t exactly all the rage in wedding planning just yet, but some couples around the world have begun enlisted their help. A 2013 US-based Kickstarter campaign raised money to build Oscar, a jack-of-all-trades robot who can serve as an officiant, flower girl, ring bearer, videographer, usher and more. For $250-500, couples in the Minneapolis area can hire Oscar to make their wedding extra special.
