When you’re planning a wedding, it can often feel like you’re bound to a range of strict traditions and conventions. That doesn’t need to be the case though. More people than ever before are deciding to break the rules and break with convention, and there’s no reason why you can’t do the same. Here are some of the best ways in which you might want to break with tradition on your wedding day.
Don’t Make Your Wedding Cake Boring
First of all, think about what you want to do with your wedding cake. So often wedding cakes are a big let down, and the best thing you can say about them is that they’re okay. Pretty boring, right? Well, why not do something different and take a new route with your choice of wedding cake. It doesn’t have to be sponge and white icing.
Get the Pets Involved
There’s no reason why you can’t get your pets involved in your wedding. For many people, their pets are cherished members of the family, so why shouldn’t they have a prominent role in the ceremony? At might not be the most traditional route to take, but it’s something to consider nonetheless. More and more people are now incorporating their dogs and other pets into proceedings.
Do Something Creative with the Menu
When your guests arrive at your wedding reception, they’re expecting a couple of things. First of all, they’re expecting to be entertained and to have a good time. But on top of that they’re also expecting a great meal that’s going to fill them up and delight their taste buds. So do something different with the food and prioritize finding dishes that are going to please the crowd.
Choose a Different Colour for Your Wedding Dress
We all know that the conventional colour of a wedding dress is white, but that doesn’t mean that they all have to be that colour. You can explore all of the stunning coloured wedding dresses out there and you’ll soon see why fewer people than ever are sticking to the regular white option that tradition dictates brides wear. Why not have some fun with your dress instead?
Select an Unexpected Venue
The venue is perhaps the most important element of any wedding. It’s vital to find something that’s going to offer all of the things you need it to. So why not select an expected venue? It doesn’t have to be a church, and you could maybe choose a location that’s important and meaningful to you as a couple.
These are just some of the ways in which you might be interested in breaking conventions on your wedding day. But the most important thing to remember is that there really are no rules when it comes to this sort of thing. You can do what you want and make it special for you and your partner because it’s your big day.Love Lilla xx
