    -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!

      *I am marrying my ex-husband.
      *My daughters will be waking me down the aisle and giving me away (back to their father) I don't know if this is good thing or bad thing LOL
      *We will be staying together the night before.
      *Only having maid of honor and best man.
      *No flower girl/ring bearer. Actually, no children under 18.
      *I'm not wearing a veil.
      *I don't plan on doing Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.
      *No sand ceremony or unity candle or any other type
      *No gifts
      *No father daughter/mother son dance. Parents are deceased
      *No TTD (if this is even a tradition) I must be getting old because I never even heard of this until I joined this forum. LOL

              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!

                  Which song is it, if you don't mind me asking?
                  I think getting boozed is pretty much traditional...
