You may have encountered these 5 wedding traditions, and perhaps you haven’t wanted to conform. The good news is, you don’t have to! Check out how these practices have evolved from tradition to myth.
1. The bride has to wear a big white dress.
No you don’t, that is, unless you want to! These days, brides are wearing all sorts of variations on their dresses, and your Las Vegas wedding is a great place to break tradition and wear something uniquely YOU.
2. The bride and groom can’t see each other before the wedding.
Ok, ok, we know that you know this one. But we have to reiterate this point, because some of the best and sweetest pictures, (i.e., not rushed) have been taken candidly before the ceremony and also with family.
3. Your ring has to be a giant, sparkling diamond.
Not everyone finds something special in a diamond. Vintage rings, precious gems and birthstones have all been wonderful and meaningful substitutes for your wedding jewelry. As long as it means something to you.
4. Vow renewals have to take place on a special anniversary.
Not so! Your vow renewal is something that you decide on as a couple. It can be as formal and structured as a second wedding, or done as casually as a surprise date night. Vegas vow renewals are a fun special way to remind yourselves of your special and unique love. Do what feels right!
5. You pay for this, they pay for that…
Tradition has dictated that the bride’s family pays for the wedding, and the groom’s family pays for the rehearsal dinner, or something like that. These days, many couples pay for the wedding themselves, while extended family members often chip in wherever they can!
