How to Modernize Wedding Traditions

Wedding traditions are often passed down through the generations, and while they are still very popular, many couples have found a way to put a modern spin on these traditions. But the more that were exposed to modernization and social media’s influence, it is more likely that we adapt to modern ways rather than the traditional ways.

Today, this blog will exactly talk about that.

The White Dress

Before the popularization of the white wedding dress in the 19th century, most brides simply wore their best dress to marry in. These were not usually white dresses because white was seen as impractical and usually only worn by the wealthy. With so many stunning colours to choose from, white doesn’t have to be the only colour of choice. If you want to get married in a scarlet red evening gown then what’s stopping you!

Father Walking The Bride Down The Aisle

Having your father walk you down the aisle is a lovely tradition, but one that doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. Throw the tradition out and have both parents walk you down the aisle, and if you don’t like the rather antiquated idea of being ‘given away’, then make the aisle walk alone!

The White Tiered Cake

As hard as it is to believe, not everyone is a fan of wedding cake. If you’re not a cake fan or just not into the cutting of the cake moment, there are many alternatives. A tiered ‘cheese’ cake replicates the look without the sugar and gluten

Traditional Ceremony Seating

Many weddings were and still are held in places of worship. The same seating formula is still usually adhered to in other venues as well, with rows of chairs. Chair decor can brighten them up but we really love the idea of using stylishly mismatched furniture. This is great for a backyard or outdoor wedding, and the pieces can be rented easily. Your guests will thank you for the added comfort.

Not Seeing Each Other Before The Ceremony

Whether it’s due to superstition or because it’s the ‘thing to do’ many couples choose not to see each other before the wedding. We like the idea of the big reveal, but we also like first look sessions. Meeting your other half beforehand gives you the chance to have a special private moment together and perhaps share a letter or gift. First look sessions also make for beautiful, intimate photographs.
