When thinking about adding those classic wedding traditions to your day.. .try and make them personal to you and your fiancé…trust us…it means so much more making new tradition of your own.

Here are a few of our favorites…the traditional and our take on a new twist!

  • Instead of a wedding cake have a dessert bar; everything from cupcakes to cotton candy and chocolate covered strawberries…guests can choose what they like and enjoy. How cute is feeding your new hubby a mini cheesecake! DSCN9924
  • Instead of the father of the bride escorting her down the aisle; how about both parents, or if you have children from a previous relationship they can escort you down the aisle, what a super sweet sentiment to have your son give you away!
  • Instead of throwing the bouquet give it to the couple attending that have been married the longest…what a great way to celebrate your wedding by honoring a couple who have endured marriage at its highs and lows…ask them their secret for a lasting marriage when presenting them with the bouquet, they will love it!

 

We hope you take some of these ideas and add them to you day…starting new traditions in your new family and for future weddings in your family!

 

Best wishes & happy planning ~
