Wedding Traditions: 14 Ones to Break

If you've come across this post because you're in the middle of wedding planning, you're probably feeling both excited and overwhelmed. Or more overwhelmed than excited.

But before you throw in the tulle and tell your significant other that it's time to elope, here are 14 wedding traditions you should feel free to break free from.

Yes, revise, modernize or skip the tradition altogether.  After all, my dear, you are the boss. I mean bride. Bride! I said bride.

Today, I am grateful ~
1/ That when I look back on H's and my wedding day, it still makes me smile
2/ because not only did H and I do things in our own unique style
3/ but because everyone we love was there ~ one tradition I do not suggest breaking.

Thank you for reading Stop and Blog the Roses.
