Sometimes you can be torn between wanting a traditional wedding and wanting something totally out there and unique. You shouldn’t have to pick between the two, you can definitely incorporate both in a way that makes sense. Here are our top ways to do that:
- Make your ceremony and reception locations different: To stick to tradition, opt for a church ceremony in your local chapel and have the usual processional, vows and sermon. And then, to change things up, go for a more modern reception location (an open, industrial space is perfect!).
- Keep a mix of both in your outfit details as a bride: You may want to opt for a more traditional bouquet, with roses and ribbon, but then step out the box with something else. We love the idea of quirky, fun shoes hidden under your dress that you can show in photos and on the dance floor.
- Keep guests guessing at the reception: Although you may want the first dance, garter toss and cake cutting, you can still have cute elements that surprise and wow your guests. Instead of the usual dessert table, bring out a donut wall and rather than the normal send-off, ask guests to light sparklers as you leave.
You don’t have to feel restricted to one type of feel for your big day, you can easily combine the beautiful traditions with pops of fun, exciting and modern trends.
