Hi all, FI and I are both feminists, and are trying to be mindful to remove patriarchal tradition, and generally wedding elements that don't sit well with us from our day. (No bouquet/garter toss or veil, we are both being walked down aisle by both parents, wording in ceremony, he wears an engagement ring, etc.)
I am wondering what other couples who feel similarly have done, which traditional elements didn't sit well with you, and whether you removed them or modified them (and how?) Would love to get a better feel for how things could be modified instead of removing so many aspects that older family members expect altogether. Would also love to know what others did in their ceremony to really make it feel like a marriage of equals and not "man and wife."
