Most of the wedding you been and seen on the movies you would notice that most wedding follow almost the same formalities during the wedding and even before the wedding. Some very common formalities were born through superstitious ideas that were originated back in the old days. This same thing is followed by everyone else not knowing why. Some have logical explanations but others do not. Why is it that the bride and groom cannot see each other before the wedding? Sometimes some formalities might not suit you guys as a couple and sometime maybe not your religion’s culture. There is no hard and fast rule to follow the formalities. Here are somethings you can change if you want to.
Did you know that photographer today provide pre wedding services too? There are wedding shoots that happen before the wedding. You can have it anywhere you want. Some it happens right before the wedding but you have it even abroad just photoshoot.
Overseas pre wedding shoot and then you may come back to have your wedding. It need not be right before the wedding does it?
At every wedding someone gives a speech. This is a formality you could say. Generally, the father of the bride followed by groom and best man giving a speech. The speeches would with toast to bride, groom and bridesmaid and also thanking everyone for coming. You can change it up. You can the speeches stretched in between the proceedings of the wedding if you want to. You can even start the whole reception by giving out the speeches at the beginning. It will relieve the nerves of the speakers for the rest of the wedding. It is not necessary to have speeches at all just a quick thank you to everyone who had come would just fine. It’s up to you.
You would have seen the tradition where the bride tosses her bouquet. Well, I know some brides who want to take their bouquet home well, and then just throw your bridesmaid’s bouquet if she doesn’t mind. If not you will have to prepare and extra bouquet – a small one for the throwing. If I were you, I wouldn’t throw it. Visit http://blog.simonthephoto.com/wedding-day/
Some other few things that people are changing are small things like vows and dances. Vows are becoming more personally bring all the love in to the wedding. Some vows I’ve heard are, “I promise to tell you that you are beautiful even if you wake up with a grumpy face.” Or “I promise not to always play video games when you want to talk.”
It is your wedding, do it the way you want to do it. It is that simple.
