15 Wedding Traditions That Are Totally OK to Break
Your wedding day might all be about you and your partner, but as soon as you set the date and start the planning, you'll be bombarded with well-meaning friends and relatives telling you all the things you "must do" at your wedding. Your aunt Betty will have opinions on you not wanting to wear white, your dad might love the idea of walking you down the aisle but be uncomfortable with making a speech. The simple fact is, if your wedding is special to you, then it's the right way to do it (especially if you add a little do-it-yourself style). Traditions are all well and good, but only if they mean something to you. There are some important, legal elements to any wedding, but you don't always need to stick to all of the traditions. There's definitely space to make the wedding feel more like your own and ensure your guests have a little more fun in the process. Here are the wedding traditions that it's completely OK to bend, twist, and even completely break.
