Wedding planning is full of shoulds, and we are very anti-should, pro-want.
This means we vehemently believe that couples should have a unique wedding day that’s about them, rather than a checklist full of patriarchal things you ‘need for your wedding’ and dated activities that don’t resonate.
However, on the flipside, we’re not here to tell you that you should totally get rid of all wedding traditions either. Thanks to their history, abandoning them entirely can leave you feeling like you’re missing something – and besides, if they symbolise something important for you, why should you miss out?
With that in mind, we thought we’d share some of our favourite ways to take old wedding traditions and make them your own.
