Your wedding day is a celebration of you and your partner, and should reflect what you love as a couple!
Last year we shared 5 ways you can break wedding traditions with the wonderful Katrina Matthews Photography. So today we are sharing 4 more traditions that you should break on your wedding day (or in the lead up) if they just don’t reflect you and your spouse.DebsOllie-Wedding-975.jpgDebsOllie-Wedding-948.jpg

Spending the night before apart

As it is much more likely that you are already living together at the point of your wedding, you shouldn’t feel bad about wanting to spend the night before your wedding together. You will be excited, or maybe even nervous the night before your wedding, so why not share it with the one person who will be in the same mindset? We are not suggesting you skip out on spending time with your bridal party, but it can wait until the morning of your wedding if you prefer!

First Look

Usually, couples will choose not to see each other until the bride is walking down the aisle, but more and more couples are opting to have a first look. If you haven’t heard of this, it is an opportunity for couples to see each other in their wedding outfits just before the ceremony. This lets you have a moment alone before the craziness of your day, and is a wonderful shot for your photographer to capture.


The Bouquet

You’ve spent good money on your wedding day flowers, including your bouquet, so it would be a massive shame to just throw it away. Instead, keep your bouquet and have it dried or pressed to keep as a beautiful memento.

The Dances

If you don’t like the idea of everyone watching your dance, just skip them. The first dance, and daddy-daughter/mother-son, etc dance are nice to see, but will not ruin a wedding if missing. Invite all your guests to dance with you straight away and start the party early.
