    Lets see, my dad isn't walking me down the aisle, my son is.
    I'm not doing th Something Old Something New Something Borrowed Something Blue
    No garter or bouquet toss but I will probably wear one.
    I'm not wearing a veil
    I'm sure there is more but that's all I can think of right now.

      *No sand ceremony or unity candle
      *Not having a Catholic Church wedding
      *No dollar dance.
      These are mine, too! Also add:
      *No bridal party at all, just the 2 of us up there.
      *no formal reception, we're taking our group to a luau instead!
      *no rehersal dinner/oot guest dinner (although we will alll probably meet up there...just not a formal thing)

        Let's see...
        Not having a wedding party, ring bearer or flower girl
        No bouquet toss
        No garter
        Not having a religous ceremony
        I haven't even thought about the dances yet...but I doubt we'll follow tradition.
        We're staying together the night before
        We've been living together for 3 years

        I'm sure there are more...

          The dollar dance is where your guests each pay to dance with either the bride or the groom. Typically they line up and the DJ plays 3-4 songs and each person dances for about a 30 seconds to a minute. A designated person is at the front of the line collecting the money.
          I'm from Ohio and I think it might be a mid-west thing.

            *We won't have a rehearsal dinner
            *No something old, blue, borrowed, etc.
            *I won't be wearing a garter (where I come from the groom goes for it with his teeth and that's not a comforting thought)
            *Not wearing a veil
            *No ring bearer or flower girl
            *No unity candle stuff
            *No Macarena will be played!
            *Groom has seen my dress (in pictures only so it won't lose all its charm)

              no bridal party
              no garter toss
              no father daughter or mother son dances
              no bouquet toss (every wedding I have been to single women cringe at being called out and no one really wants to do it)...I am gonna give it to my grandma or split it in two and give half to each one of my 2 single friends who will be there in a seas of couples
              no giving away
              my brother is escorting me down aisle and not my dad
              no engagement party
              no rehearsal dinner
              no ring bearer or flower girl
              no dancing at reception (well I am making a CD of slow songs so they can if they want)...it is a yacht an not a ton of room for dancing...there is an afterparty in a VIP area at a Vegas club though
              staying together night before...we have lives together for a year
              no gifts for parents
              no gifts for each other (writing letters to each other that we'll read before we go to the chapel instead)
              no traditional wedding dress...(a cocktail dress that I had lengthened into a long dress...if I had found a long silver dress that I liked I would have married in that...didnt want to do white and I can't stand big stuffy wedding dresses...I'm 37 I don't need to look like a fairytale princess and have a long train)
              not wearing white or ivory or typical shoes...(hot pink and black feathers!)

              I'm sure there is much more..we are not very traditional at all!

                It must be, because I have never heard of it!
