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.

I think your wedding sounds personal, which is so much better than traditional or non-traditional anyways :)

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!
