What traditions are you NOT doing? (poll borrowed from TK)

Recommended Posts

-no veil

-not a typical bouquet toss (all the women will be able to try and catch it)

-no reception dance (although we may go dance at the one lobby bar witha love band)

-not being "given away"

-my Mom is walking our kids down the isle

-barefoot

-legal ceremony already done, so only a symbolic DW

-no rehersal dinner (although we may all meet up together for supper anyway)

-white dress with turquoise on it

-father/daughter mother/son dance will be done with our kids rather than our parents (if we go dancing at the lobby bar)

 

That dollar dance sounds fun, although I have never heard of it before. Around here people usually just kidnap the bride for an hour or so and have to raise a ransom before they bring her back. To collect the ransom, a cowboy boot is usually pasted around. During the kidnapping, the bride usually takes off to a bar to go dancing for a few songs before heading back to the reception!

Oooooh I have a good one...today actually my FI is going wedding dress shopping with me! I have narrowed it down to 4-5 different dresses and I REALLY want his opinion on them (otherwise I have this fear that he will just HATE the dress)...so we are going today! He won't actually know which one I end up getting but he will have seen me in the dress already!
