Every bride wants an elegant wedding that looks every bit as beautiful as she does. After months of planning, the ceremony and the reception should wow the guests and go as smoothly as possible. But when you’ve made up your mind to theme your wedding, it can be tougher to get everything together. As for a vintage theme? Follow this guide to include all the best traditions for a vintage style wedding:
Congratulations! You’re engaged. You’ve begun thinking about the type of wedding day you’d like to have, all the people you’d like to share the day with, the funky music that a band will be playing live all night long...and, oh my, is that how much everything costs? In the States, the average wedding costs around $36,000. If you’re looking at that figure and thinking, ‘well, guess we’re not getting married,' then fear not: because you can still have an awesome day, and it won’t have to cost anywhere close to the figure mentioned above. All it takes is a few simple cost-cutting measures.
Your wedding day is a happy day for you and your fiance. Sounds obvious? It is! It’s just important to remember that important fact when you become enveloped by the enormous and stressful process of planning your wedding. It’s vitally important throughout to keep some perspective and remember your love for each other as the reason you’re making this commitment to each other. Because, let’s face it, the 21st century wedding is a logistically fraught affair that borders on being a military operation. With an average price tag of over $30,000 and a small army of professionals involved from jewelers to caterers, it’s no wonder many couples find the prospect of wedding planning somewhat daunting.
Weddings are full of traditions. Some of them have been around for hundreds of years, but many aren't as old as you might think. For example, wearing a white dress and having a diamond engagement ring are only really a few decades old. When you're planning your wedding, there might be some traditions you want to follow. However, if you want to make your wedding your own, there are plenty of ways to play around with these traditions too. Try some of these wedding traditions to make your own for a unique experience.
