To Toss or Not To Toss...

Standard wedding traditions, such as the bouquet and garter toss, tiered wedding cake, and line dancing, are quickly being replaced by modern, unconventional trends. Check out these new traditions in this week’s blog!    

  • Fewer flowers or eliminating flowers altogether:
    • Brides are substituting the traditional flower arrangements with vintage books, lanterns, lace, candles and more. Straying from the cookie-cutter look, brides are trying to add that unique touch for a more personal wedding feel.
  • Wedding party mix-up:
    • Long goes the standard girls on the bride’s side, boys on the groom’s side! Wedding parties now include the bride’s brother standing on her side, the groom’s best “gal” friend on his side. Brides and grooms are also choosing to have smaller wedding parties with 4-6 attendants on each side.
  • Cupcakes, dessert bars, and MORE:
    • Brides are no longer choosing the traditional tiered wedding cake. From cupcakes to extravagant dessert bars filled with candy, pastries and pies, anything is possible! Gluten free cakes and desserts are also becoming a popular wedding day trend.
  • Guestbook gone wild:
    • The “sign your name on the line” guestbook has been thrown out the door. Brides are now creating guestbook masterpieces to be cherished for years to come! From thumbprint trees and calligraphy notes to a framed locket fence resembling the “love fence in Paris,” guest books have now become quite the rage!
  • Reception with a twist:
    •  Many brides are electing to ditch the bouquet and garter toss and get on with the show. Creating a fun, party atmosphere guests will remember seems to find precedence over the traditional formal events of the wedding reception timeline.
