2. Make It A Family Affair
Include your family in the wedding traditions. If you and your significant other have kids, consider giving them roles in the ceremony or the reception. Including them in the bridal party or having them give toasts are great ways to make them feel involved. Besides, who better to tell funny stories about you than your kids?!
3. Think Big
Get creative! If you’ve done the traditional ceremony, this time around find new ways to celebrate love. Maybe you wear a colorful wedding dress instead of the classic white, or you have an intimate cocktail reception with lots of fun food and drinks for your guest to enjoy. The possibilities are endless!
4. Wedding Registry
You probably already have what you need to start your new home. So your registry can be different. Maybe you have a home improvement registry to help fix some of your homes minor needs. Or you can have guests directly donate to your favorite charity! Lots of couple also are opting to have guests contribute to a “honeyfund” to help pay for the honeymoon. Who needs new flatware when you can go on vacation?! Whatever you decide, your wedding registry can be anything but traditional.
No matter what number wedding day this is for you, it doesn’t mean it has to be any less special. Go all out for your new-found love. Whether you stick to tradition or go a different route, make your wedding day as special as you both are!
