Weddings are a delicate balance of what’s trendy . . . what’s traditional . . . and WHATEVER THE BRIDE WANTS.
A new poll asked people who’d recently been to a wedding what traditions are outdated, and which ones are now “in.”
The old customs that are OUT include: The bride not being seen before the wedding . . . the bride’s parents paying for the wedding . . . the bride and groom’s guests sitting on separate sides . . . walking down the aisle to “Here Comes the Bride” . . . and the “something old, new, borrowed, and blue” thing.
The new stuff that’s IN right now includes: Small weddings or just eloping . . . wedding websites . . . bright, vibrant colors . . . proposal videos . . . “alternative rings” (and that’s not “alternative” as in they’re from Hot Topic) . . . non-white wedding gowns . . . and having more than one Maid of Honor and Best Man.
The survey also showed that the perfect number of wedding guests is exactly . . . 115. (And unfortunately for Aunt Hazel, she came in at #116.)
