If you want to have a modern wedding, chances are you like to be different, and you aren’t a fan of tradition. Here are some ideas to help you get started on this exciting journey of planning a modern wedding that everyone will remember. You will probably want to get a wedding planning book or notebook even if you don’t want to follow it religiously. This way you will be able to easily record our ideas and plans, and it might also give you some ideas for changing traditional items or routine out for new ones.
Once you have somewhere to start recording your ideas, think about the major things that make up a wedding. Who will the wedding party be? What will your gown be like? What music do you want? For the wedding party, if you want to be different, consider only including family members, or perhaps you would like to go completely against tradition and not include any family members. Or, instead of a best man, how about a best woman? And instead of a flower girl, what about including one of your pets in the ceremony? Even a dog can carry a ring bearer’s pillow on his back.
Another thing you could change is the wedding invitations. Modern wedding invitations could be as simple as a phone call to all your friends, or you could use electronic cards to invite them to your special day. For music, why not consider having a band or jazz song to walk down the aisle to? Or get someone you know to perform a solo. Flowers? Who says you have to carry those. You could carry anything that you think is pretty, or that means a lot to you.Remember, this is your big day, and above all else you should do what makes you happy. Never give in to tradition because you think that you should.
