Weddings are now creative and unique more than ever, with locations, themes and parties that aren’t conventional, but very enjoyable. But, some folks still prefer to keep it simple and go with the traditional route. Some mix both approaches and find the balance to make it more personal.
If you want to keep the traditional way of planning a wedding, here are some elements you shouldn’t miss:
Serve Traditional Food
Honour your roots by serving a national cuisine. If you have Spanish ancestors or a Japanese heritage, why not incorporate that into your menu by serving their national food? Ask your mother or grandmother to use the special family recipe to cook their specialty for the wedding. You can also request for one or two traditional dishes from your chosen caterer.
Rent an Old-Fashioned Wedding Car
There are many classic wedding cars, according to NoosaWoodyHire.com, that can serve as your “just married” car. This is the perfect, most traditional way to arrive at the church, and then travel from there to your wedding reception. You can choose among the Essex Super Six, Sunbeam Dawn, S2 Bentley, Ford Skyliner Retractable and a wide array of other old-fashioned wedding cars.
Play Classic Wedding Songs
You can still play party songs and pop music during the second half of the reception for the enjoyment of the guests. But, make sure you have a traditional wedding playlist to set the mood for a romantic dance. Your favourite love songs and wedding songs should play during your walk down the aisle, your first walk as a married couple, your first dance, and the father-and-daughter dance.
Keep these things in mind and you can surely make your wedding a perfectly traditional one. Make sure to take photographs and videos, and cherish every special moment as it happens.
