5 Wedding Rules You Can Break On Your Wedding Day
Like any milestone event, a wedding too is full of traditions that go back a long way. Often, traditions help us to make the event even more meaningful and memorable. But with changing times, a tradition doesn’t hold meaning to many people. Couples nowadays don’t want to feel tied to traditions.
When it comes to a wedding, there are a couple of rules and traditions that we don’t want to break no matter how modern we are. But here are five wedding rules that are perfectly fine to break on your wedding day.
Your groom can’t see you until the ceremony:
You can spend every minute with your groom before the ceremony. Really? Trust me it’s not a bad luck if your fiancé catches a glimpse of you in your wedding gown. Instead, surprise him with your presence out there. Many couples prefer that inexorably emotional experience in private rather than in front of all of their guests. Also, try to capture the moment when both of you first see each other before the ceremony.
The bride’s parents pay for the wedding
Every couple funds the celebrations in different ways. Maybe your parents (groom’s parents) want to pay for every single item, unlike the past where the bride’s family was expected to pay the whole bill no matter what. Grooms’ parents and the couples these days, contribute equally to the marriage preparations. If you’d like your fiancé’s parents’ help, ask for it. Remember, “Whoever pays gets a say.”
You must wear a traditional dress:
Again, it’s your day, so wear what you like. Wear any color you like. Don’t stick to traditional colors. Bring on the blush, blue or mint. There’s no shortage of options for your dream day. Why not try them all! Because it’s all about finding that perfect dress that suits you and your personality, no matter what color, pattern, style… anything!
The ceremony seating:
Say goodbye to that ancient tradition of the seating arrangement. Getting married is not only about the union of two souls but is also the union of two families. So why can’t both the families sit together too?! Some of your guests might still abide by this traditional guideline, but ask them to feel more relaxed and ‘grab a seat anywhere’. Also, put a fun sign to ensure the families mix.
Honeymooning straight after your big day:
You can go on a honeymoon whenever you want. Heading straight for your honeymoon after your reception sounds romantic, but at the same time, it can be a nightmare. Think about it. You’d have to drag your luggage from the ceremony to the reception and have to keep your passport and plane tickets in a safe place for that entire day. When you take a honeymoon it is completely up to you two (and sometimes your boss a little bit). It doesn’t matter if you go on a honeymoon after a year or two. It’ll still be the wonderful experience you have always imagined of.
It is completely okay to ditch the traditional rules. In the end, just keep in mind that a wedding is a very personal thing and it is your day to celebrate. So make your wedding day your own! There might be some traditional sentiments associated with your special day, but don’t be afraid to do things your way. Forget all the “have to’s” and “shoulds” and be the gracious bride and groom and let your style shine.
