The Tied Bride. When it comes to weddings, some people can be so habitual and accustomed to traditions. But people need to realize that my wedding is going to go how WE want it, not what other people expect. So here are some rules we decided to break for our own wedding.
No disrespect to anyone who has held these sacred for their big day, it's just not for us.
The bouquet throw - I'm sure almost everyone does this, but truthfully I want to keep my bouquet. I'm using all preserved flowers in mine for this very reason.
Grooms cake - Why do they need their own cake? hahah I'm just kidding, this is just an extra expense we aren't going to do.
Wear white on your wedding day - Thankfully women have been wearing every color of wedding dress forever now, so this doesn't apply to everyone anymore. But still, about 75% of brides wear white on their wedding day, I've chosen Champagne.
Never wear black - Well I'm breaking this one because black is one of my favorite colors. My bow on my dress is black.
Marry on Wednesday, its the best day - I don't know many people who go by the days of the week superstitions. Weekends are popular because that's the majority of people's days off.
Don't have a cash bar - This is one of those win/lose type of situations. Some people can be so offended by the concept and some don't even notice. We are thinking about it considering we are paying for 100% of our wedding and liquor is expensive.
Don't include registry info in invites - This is another thing that tends to offend people, when you include where you're registered in your invites. People will always tell you to leave it to the Best man and Maid of Honor to tell your guests, but most of our guests are out of town and that is a HUGE burden to put two people through, so guess what? Our registry tags are going in the invitations, deal with it.
Don't go DIY crazy - I laugh at this one. Have you met me? I'm going to do as much as possible all by myself. It's a money saver and a great way to personalize your wedding.
I do stand by one rule though...
Brit's #1 rule
- Do not let friends or family talk you in to things you don’t want for your
What rules did you break or are you planning on breaking on the big day?
