Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of wedding articles that say something like “ Wedding Trends We Want To Go Away ” or “ Wedding Trends We Wish They Would Retire. ”
Let’s turn that around to something positive! There are certainly many fabulous wedding trends and practices that we’d love to see for a loooong time.
These are my 4 top favorites!
- Non-Identical Bridesmaid Gowns
Your ladies have different personalities, and probably aren’t the same size or body type. Making them dress in identical dresses isn’t as common as it used to be.
Choose a color (or color family) and give your ladies a few “guidelines” to follow, such as not full-length, or no strapless. Or choose a few different styles that coordinate and let your ladies choose which style each would like to wear.
- The “First Look”
Most couples still follow the tradition of the groom not being allowed to see his bride before she walks down the aisle. However, a “First Look” is so special, and gives you both a moment together before the celebration of the day begins.
- Unplugged Weddings
Your friends and family are excited to share your day and want photos to remember the day – I get that. But, if they’re watching through a viewfinder is distracting. They aren’t fully “in the moment.” Being “unplugged” allows your guests to truly “feel” the day, instead of collecting pictures to look at later.
- No Wedding Cake
Ok, I love cake, but I have seen my share of couples who don’t, or just want to serve something different to their guests. Pies, ice cream, candy buffets, donuts . . . The possibilities are endless, so choose your favorite!
(P.S. – This doesn’t mean I want to do away with wedding cakes. Instead, I want to encourage couples to do what feels right for them!)
