8 Ways You Can Break Wedding Traditions
Untraditional Wedding Ideas
I love it when couples break the rules and to encourage you to do the same I have put this blog together discussing 8 ways you can break wedding traditions on your wedding day.
Don’t get me wrong there are some wedding traditions that are great for photos, for quests to enjoy and for the couple to experience but there are ways you can improve these traditions and personalise them to be unique to you and your loved ones.
The best thing about breaking wedding traditions is how much more fun you can make it. For every great wedding tradition there are 3 that are, honestly, really dull but you can change things up to turn it into something fun or even entertaining for your guests.The options are endless so to get you started and inspire some awesome wedding planning ideas here are my top 8 ways you can break wedding traditions!
1. Plan a first look
Traditionally the first time the couple see each other is at the wedding ceremony but there is a really special alternative. You could arrange to have a first look with each other before or even on your way to the ceremony. Why not meet in a beautiful woodland setting and set eyes on each other just the two of you (and your photographer). It makes the moment so personal, I love that it is a moment the couple get to keep just between the two of them.
2. Walk down the aisle together
Instead of having a parent or close relative walk you down the aisle why not make an entrance together and walk down the aisle as a couple? This isn’t a tradition that is often broken and it’s understandable why. It’s a wonderful gesture to ask your father or loved one to walk you down the aisle but when this isn’t possible or a little complicated (like most families are) then this is a great alternative for your ceremony. Plus I would like to see the groom get his big entrance every now and again too!
