I think I can answer that with “Southern Mississippi.” Hah. Bride, groom, preacher, I do, you do, we do.

We are doing the traditional vows, but not in a church (ceremony and reception at same site) and the entire ceremony will be under 15 minutes. So is that considered untraditional? I don’t even know.

I guess I consider traditional to be a white dress, a bride, a groom, some family, vows, and the rest is optional.

I’m afraid that might be taken the wrong way. I didn’t mean to offend any Southeners. Being a Southerner, certain traditions are expected by family, thus we are abiding by certain traditions. That’s all that was implied. I’m very happy with my Southern gentleman. 🙂

Non-Traditional… because most traditional things are cheesy and meaningless to us.

“traditional” in the sense that I’ll have a rehearsal dinner, white (mostly) dress (maybe, ideally I’d want a gorgeous grey or black one) and a “ceremony” followed by cocktail hour/reception, brunch the next day, etc, but non-traditional in that it will be non-religious and we aren’t having real flowers (we don’t care enough to justify spending $ on the flowers, our wedding itself though will be pretty expensive unfortunately, I’d rather just elope but he wants the whole wedding so that’s what we’re doing :-))

In my family eloping is a tradition.  I followed that tradition.  🙂

We’re going a slightly more traditional route: white wedding dress, don’t see each other before the ceremony, traditional vows (I ___ take thee ___ to be my lawfully wedded …), Here Comes the Bride, etc. However, we’re not doing a religious ceremony and our location is a museum.

We both like that part of the tradition, so that’s the main reason for going with it. 🙂
