Are you planning your union? Then you already realized that there is lots of wedding rules and traditions that you “must follow” (or at least that’s what your mother, your aunts and your grandmother say). However, they may not know that the main bridal trend is, precisely, to break the rules. If you are a bride who does not conform to conventions and you want a link different from all the othersyou may want to consider breaking the following rules…
wear a diamond ring
The diamond engagement ring It has been for decades a symbol of purity and exclusivity. However, today it is no longer the only precious stone that adorns the hands of future brides. The rings can now carry colored sapphires, pearls, emeralds… Look at these options to get inspired.
Use formal language in invitations
Don’t you want to use the classic phrase “The parents of the bride and groom participate in the marriage of their children and (blah blah blah)”? It’s okay: just make sure include essential wedding details. If the classic designs (you know, on a white paper and with gold cursive font) seem boring to you, choose one full of color and shapes. Here we give you some ideas.
wear a veil
Today, there are many alternatives for brides who do not want to wear a veil during their wedding. You can opt for a vintage headdress, a flower crown, a comb, a headband, a hairpin… in short. If you decide that you do want to wear a veil, keep these rules in mind.
That the parents of the bride pay for the wedding
Tradition dictates that the bride’s parents must finance the wedding (and in some cases, the dress). But this is changing: most “modern” boyfriends save and pay your own link. The advantage? They can have a celebration to their liking and do not have to answer to anyone.
wear a white dress
Just 50 years ago, walking down the aisle dressed in any color other than white would be inconceivable. However, today many bridal designers are committed to using other shades, such as rosewood, sky blue and gray. Other perfect choice for spring are the dresses with floral prints.
have a big cake
Traditional cakes, multi-tiered and covered with meringue, they are expensive and, to tell the truth, not very tasty (seriously, when have you seen a wedding cake go completely out?). Modern alternatives: “naked” cakes, single-tier cakes, cheese towers, minimalist cakes, candy tables…
live together only after marriage
Tradition dictates that a couple can share a bed only after they are married. But currently many (many!) couples live together before getting married, which helps them get to know each other better.
Go to the honeymoon right after
They may want to wait a few days before going on a trip to go rested, or maybe they need time to save a little more. Who says you have to board the plane right after the party?
Keep your wedding dress a secret
If you don’t believe in wedding superstitions, then you won’t think it’s bad luck for your future husband to see your dress. So, why not show it to him and ask for his opinion? Now, if you want your bridal look to be a surprise, keep it a secret.
