I saw a post about sleeping apart before a wedding (which we aren't doing) and I wondered if anyone else is cutting out common traditions, and wondered which ones and why! For us, we aren't doing:
- Night apart before the wedding
- Getting ready separately/First Look
- Dads walking us down the aisle
- Cake cutting
- Bouquet/garter tosses
- Speeches from parents/Dances with parents
Since ours is a gay wedding, it's easy to cut out lots of stuff that is traditionally heterosexual. We also wanted to remove any sort of "giving away" rhetoric from our families, hence limited parental involvement. So what traditions are you doing away with and why!
