Happy Tuesday! Just an FYI, today is one week from Halloween, two months until Christmas Eve and seven months less a couple weeks until my first 2018 wedding (as of now)…but who’s counting!! I love doing countdowns, just like I love following those holiday traditions for each celebration, it always brings that feeling of joy and reminisces!
As I’ve told you before, my sister is getting married, and I’m super excited to help her plan! She’s already got so much figured out, and knows what she wants- but there’s always a few things here and there that I can assist her with -which is nice! Anytime we talk about her wedding, I always think of little things, “traditional” things and wonder if she is or isn’t going to add them into her wedding. For example, the bouquet toss, or the couples cake cutting!
I came across this article that talks about ‘8 Traditions Millennials are Dropping’ nowadays while planning their wedding. Some of these traditions I think -okay, that’s fair, it is a dying practice, but then I’m torn on relinquishing any type of tradition, because aren’t weddings in general the definition of tradition? I don’t know, maybe I’m old school- but part of me feels like anyone who goes through the entirety of wedding, is essentially following some form of a tradition…? No? So why not follow through on all those memorable customs? Tell me your thoughts, perhaps I’m way off…and again, only my opinion.
Regardless, us Millennials (yes, if you are a person reaching young adulthood in the early 21st century, you’re a Millennial), are the ones that seem to be starting this trend of ‘dropping traditions’. Maybe it is time to change these traditions, and make new ones!? I’m not sure how I feel about that, how about you??
