After the gorgeous wedding we had this weekend, it had me thinking about wedding traditions. I don’t mean the typical garter and bouquet toss or the first dance. There are so many ways to start your own traditions and it truly brings meaning for your family and friends. You see last night a cousin of the bride came up to me during the mother/son dance and asked if in the middle of the song we could call up all of the sons that were there with their moms to join them on the dance floor then the same for the fathers and daughters. It was so sweet and the groom also danced with his “new” mother. They share this at all their family weddings and it is the perfect touch especially when some songs are longer but the bride and groom want to keep the length of it. Another tradition I know of is very close to me as we did it at my sisters wedding. Her and her high school friends all sing to each bride at their wedding “Ain’t no mountain high enough”. It is sweet and entertaining (especially after a few drinks). Traditions do not have to big something that is done either. It can also be something you wear such as jewelry, a purse, garter, etc. It’s just important if your close friends or family members you want to start a tradition with pass the item along to each person next in line. Also it will double as an engagement present with meaning.
If you are getting married soon just think of how cool it would be for your wedding to begin a new tradition with your friends and family. Each time you do it at weddings it will get bigger and better and really add that special touch of love. Please contact me for any planning advice or assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
