Wedding Traditions & You!Jul 24, 2017
There can be so many components to your wedding day - the dress, the rings, the breaking of the glass, the cake, the henna, the bouquet toss or the first dance, - that it can be easy to lose sight of why you end up doing or saying the things you do. Traditions are amazing, but the most extraordinary aspect is the story they tell. Every part of your wedding has the potential to tell the story of you and your partner, of how you came to be together, of what that means to each of you. It’s a beautiful opportunity. Part of that story will include your religious beliefs, your cultural practices and, simply, your personal preferences. How you reflect those aspects of yourselves is up to you. Of course, there are some legal requirements regarding the ceremony and you can find that information easily online. The rest of the day has the potential to be as relaxing or exciting as you want! However you envision your special day, be sure to consider what it includes and why! What does it mean for you to join this person in marriage? How can your wedding reflect that? What has your journey been together? How can you honor that? What are your hopes for the future? How can you symbolize that? What promises are you making? How do you want to say that? Our advice is to have fun, think outside the box and treat yourself! Your love story is one of a kind and your special day should be no different!
