3 Traditions to Throw out
For centuries, weddings have been based on traditions. Brides were walked down the aisle and given away by their fathers while certain ceremonies took place around them. But, the world is constantly changing, and wedding traditions are slowly changing with it. While most wedding traditionsare beautiful and preferred by brides, there are a few things you can change to make your wedding more personal and special.
Here are three common traditions with some fun twists for the modern world.
Down the Aisle
As before mentioned, it is common for brides to be walked down the aisle by their fathers. However, not all brides have a father present or a relationship with their father that warrants this tradition. To mix it up, consider having both your parents walk you down the aisle or another special family member. Some brides even walk down the aisle alone to keep the focus on themselves on their big day.
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen
One of the best things about weddings is that you are able to share the day with your closest friends. For many, this means you and your closest friends dressing up in pretty dresses and sharing the big day together. However, it can be stressful to find the same number of groomsmen as bridesmaids, and it can be expensive as well. Instead, consider going with an uneven number of bridesmaids and groomsmen or forgoing them altogether. Sometimes a small, intimate ceremony with just your groom is the answer to the perfect, stress-free wedding.
Naturally, there are definitely some photos you will want to get of you and your family on your wedding day. But, while traditional shots are great, candid shots help to tell the story of your wedding day. Instead of focusing solely on professional, posed shots, considered something fun, like a photo booth. With this, you and your guests will be able to share the day together in memorable photos that will last the rest of your days.
Changing up traditions that normally go along with a wedding is a great way to make your wedding memorable and exciting. Whether you are looking to stray far off-course or stay close to home, there are likely to be several ways you can make your wedding extremely special.
