Every wedding ceremony is a partly traditional partly modern. There is no possible way to skip all the traditions because your friends and family members are expecting them. Of course, most newlyweds want their wedding reception to be as modern as possible because different things are remembered. However, we have gathered 5 things without, your wedding will be incomplete. Our conclusions are based on our experience only.
What can be “something old”?
First thing brides should wear is “something old”. There are several ways to get into this tradition without and still look gorgeous. One of my best friends, on her wedding, get her mother bracelet and wear it during the whole ceremony. This jewel was a good addition and the tradition was saved. Another great choice to opt for is some old item from a beautiful memory but you should try to be with your future husband or parents, not with your ex. Deeply meaningful items can be a part of your photos if they are not something you can wear all the time. The last option is dress something that is yours but old or something that looks vintage, like boots or hairpin.
What can be “something new”?
This is easy because if this is your first wedding reception everything is new for you. If you want to follow the tradition exactly then you should ask groom or brides to make you some present. If you haven’t chosen your jewellery, let them choose one of them. If you don’t want to give them so much freedom, just point to them what you want. A very stylish choice is to add to your bouquet pretty hankies that are new. If they are a present from someone you value, then “something new” is really meaningful. A great innovative choice is to make a new tattoo with your husband. It will be something new and forever.
What can be “something borrowed”?
This is a great tradition and it means that you are part of society or group somehow. Something borrowed means someone wants to give you something important and you should keep it safe. It is up to you if you are taking your family jewellery or your friends items. Most women prefer both things, so they have 2 items borrowed. Another option is to negotiate with your best friend for her pair of gorgeous shoes. It is not like you will use the tradition to your own advantage often so you are free to do it.
No matter what colors you have chosen for your wedding reception, blue color is a “must”. Most brides combine their bouquets a with blue handkerchief or add some blue flower in it. Another option is to be completely extravagant and find blue shoes to wear under your dress. These photos with brides with colorful shoes are always attractive.
Wedding Photobooth service
If you have followed all the traditions then you should start to think about the fun part of the wedding. Your reception should entertain your guests the best possible way. That’s why hiring a wedding photo booth service, as Ubersnap is one of the best things you can do for your party. At the end of the wedding, you will have hundreds of fun photos of your friends and memories will be there with you forever. Really good idea is to add a book next to the photo booth so your guests can glue their photos and write some wishes around them. You can make this online, too.
