It is a way to pay respect to our family and to be embraced by the love and appreciation that makes family so important. The bride may be asked to wear her mother’s wedding dress or incorporate some of the older traditions from your parents wedding. You do not have to be afraid to ask people to relax and give you and your spouse the ability to develop your own opinions, before trying to share their ideas with you.
Sit down with your spouse and figure out what parts of your wedding you would both describe as the most important and work from their. Take parts of your personalities and find interest ways to incorporate it into a traditional wedding. If the bribe is an avid runner and does not really like getting “dressed up”, consider going with a warm weather wedding and wearing an airy or shortened wedding dress. You can still bring aspects of a traditional wedding into the dress by using a traditional veil and bridesmaid dresses.
