The Top Traditions Every Couple Should Include in Their Wedding Day
There are many special wedding traditions that you can possibly include in your day. So much so that it can often deter couples from using any of them. Naturally, you should never do anything that don’t resonate with you or fit in with who you are as a couple. However, there are a handful of traditions that every couple should at least consider because they add a unique and personal touch to your special day.
Cut the Cake Early On
Even though a cake is something to look forward to at a wedding, many guests see the cake cutting as a signal that they’re free to head home after the reception. To make sure that all guests feel comfortable and can leave when they feel they need, you can cut the cake shortly after dinner. This way, you and your guests can help yourselves whenever you’re ready to enjoy something sweet. It also won’t stand in the way guests leaving at a time that’s convenient for them. This is especially true for older guests and those with young children.
Print Your Wedding Invites
Many of today’s couples create online invites but there’s just something about paper invites that sets the tone for a one-of-a-kind day. Not only can you get really creative with paper invites but they serve as a physical and visual reminder of the upcoming event. Plus, there’s nothing quite like receiving a beautiful invite in the mail.
Spend Time with Your Guests
If you’re inviting a lot of guests, you may not be able to spend a lot of time with all of them but it’s always appreciated when the couple takes the time to walk around and thank everyone for attending. Whether you set up a receiving line to chat to everyone or make your way around the room after you’ve eaten, your guests would love to congratulate you personally.
Remember, this is your wedding day and you have the freedom to create your own traditions – traditions that you can even pass onto your children one day!
