Making New Traditions

We all know how passionate brides are about their weddings, but some brides are more laid back than others. These will probably elope or have a small, intimate wedding. I highly recommend having some sort of celebration rather than just heading down to the courthouse. Marriage is a spiritual connection, whether we know it beforehand—or, like most of us, realize it about one month after emerging from the fog of saying “I do.”

 

These days, brides are less on the bridezilla side and more the do-it-yourself type, representing the brains behind orchestrating the perfect wedding. Mothers are also taking a back seat. Many brides aren’t concerned about all the sentimental things that tradition brings to the table. We aren’t saying tradition is out the window, but we are seeing a trend where new traditions are being made.

 

Your wedding day is symbolic of the new life you are about to enter: an integration of two households, some of which have never lived with the opposite sex before, others maybe having been married before and hopeful for a second or third chance. It’s the dawn of a new era in your life.

 

I love the old tradition of wearing “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” It represents a nod to the past, while making your wedding entirely your own. Even last-minute brides can follow this one, and there’s nothing wrong with borrowing, begging or stealing (OK, maybe not stealing) to make your wedding day special.

 

What traditions will you keep for your wedding and what new ones will you create?
