    -We're staying together the night before
    -My son is walking me down the aisle
    -No veil
    -No garter/bouquet toss
    -No DJ at reception
    -No rehearsal dinner and maybe no rehearsal (some of the wedding party aren't arriving until the day before the wedding)
    -Invitations still haven't been sent out even though over 50 people have paid deposits for their rooms and airfare
    -No flower girl/ring bearer
    -No father/daughter or mother/son dance
    -No assigned seats at the reception. Sit wherever you want.
    -No engagement party

      I WILL be:
      Walked down the aisle by my parents *this is a Jewish tradition, and the only religious tradition we will be following
      Wearing a white dress
      not seeing FI before the wedding - once we eat breakfast - we won't see each other till I walk down the aisle.

      I WILL NOT be:
      Spending the night apart from FI
      Having a bridal party or maid/matron of honor
      having parent/child dances
      wearing a garter or doing a bouquet toss
      doing a sand ceremony *seems to be traditional for DW Brides
      having any kind of religious ceremony
      using any kind of classical music for the ceremony

        i have alot of the same things as all of you, but the one im most excited about.. MY DOG! My dog, who is basically my furry child, is walking with our BM & MoH down the aisle! Its going to be interesting because my dog is 130lbs of muscle (rottweiler) so it will be more like SHE is walking our BM & MoH! :)
