Traditional or not?

Everyone has an opinion.

When I talk about my wedding plans, I’ve had people tell me that I’m soooo traditional. Other times, I have had people comment on how I’m so nontraditional.

And maybe I am reading too much into this, but I feel that the people that thing that I’m so non-traditional have only gone to cookie cutter weddings while the people that feel that I’m so traditional are my friends that are more much contemporary.

My Very Traditional Wedding
· We’re having a 1st Dance.
· We have a Head Table.
· We’re having a cake and doing a cake cutting.
· We’re getting married in a hotel.

My Very Non-Traditional Wedding
· We’re having an Anniversary Dance.
· We’re having an After Party.
· I’m walking myself down the aisle.
· There will be no Bouquet or Garter Toss.
· We are having a friend marry us.

Really though, I didn’t think about these things while wedding planning. I just went with the things that I wanted, regardless if it was considered avant garde or very traditional.

    We just went ahead and did what we wanted. It\’s getting to the point where it\’s traditional to do the un-traditional at your wedding. (Undtraditional…is that even a word?) In my mind, when I think \’tradition\’, I imagine goats and pigs being exchanged; thank goodness we don\’t have to put up with that one!
