Wedding Ceremony - 12/16/2023

Very few days in one's life are as exciting as their wedding day. After all, this once and a lifetime day is one that will be unforgettable as time goes on. In essence, it is a celebration of love, union, and every small detail that goes into making the wedding day special. Every small detail that goes into a wedding has some symbolic or sentimental meaning to the couple. These details can range from the color of flower arrangements that one chooses or the dishware that is used to set the table.
With details comes traditions. Many choose to add traditions to their wedding because it is important to the couple as well as their culture. These traditions can range from receiving gifts from friends and family to ones that involve religion. However, as time goes on, traditions can change and evolve. In this blog written by the wedding professionals at Oklahoma Bridal, we will discuss the best twists on modern traditions.

Best twists on wedding traditions:

● Traditional first dance: Many couples choose to do a first dance during the wedding reception. Anyone who has ever attended a wedding is probably familiar with the newly wedded couple swaying to a slow song on the dance floor. However, this does not have to be done. In order to add a twist on this classic tradition, one can heat up the dance floor by doing the tango or the salsa.
● Bouquet toss: Recently, many brides have chosen to toss away the bouquet toss all together. Instead of doing a bouquet toss, one can try giving a toast or a personal message to their friends. They then can present the bouquet to a family member or a close mentor.
● Making a dramatic exit: The bride and groom are often sent off with a shower of confetti and then whisked away in a fancy car. However, more and more couples are choosing to stay until the very last dance in order to make sure that their guests get home safely and stress-free.
● Regular open bar: This trend has been reconsidered time and time again. The newest twist on this trend is to create your own custom wedding cocktail and serve it to your guests. This can be special as well as personal.
● Garter toss: Many have chosen to do away with the garter toss and let the kids in on the fun. Some couples have chosen to toss toys, candy, and other fun-filled items out into the crowd so that the kids could participate.

Every single detail matters when it comes to planning a wedding. An essential part of the details that one chooses to add may include some traditions. Traditions can range from traditional to religious to modern. When adding traditions to your wedding plans, it is important to choose ones that hold value to you and your partner.
