Modern couples know that not every wedding tradition needs to make an appearance. Some traditions just aren’t the right fit! If there are certain traditions that just don’t suit your wedding vision it’s okay to modify them or cut them out completely.
Not every couple is going to want a formal, sit-down dinner. Many couples are opting for a more casual dinner option, such as a buffet, stations, or even a food truck. If you want to break with tradition and offer your guests a different style of dinner, go for it! Your wedding should reflect your style as a couple.
Hate the idea of a large ceremony? Hold a small, intimate ceremony early in the day or even the day before the reception. Invite guests to your reception only and let family and very close friends know personally about the ceremony. That way, your guests still get to celebrate your marriage and enjoy a great party but you don’t have to worry about the pressure of 200 people watching you recite your vows.
