I think anything traditional is fine to skip, as long as it’s not important to you or your Fiance. I don’t see why it’d be a big deal, although I don’t believe in superstitions anyway.

if it’s not something you originally intended or would hate to go without, skip it. why waste your time on something that doesn’t mean that much to you?

It’s completely up to you! If you want to take part in the tradition, I’m sure it won’t hurt- but same with leaving it out. I know my Fiance and I are cutting most traditions (taking his last name, bouquet/garter, something new&old&borrowed…) just because we don’t see the point to them and disagree with some of the symbolism. We’ve gotten to a point where you can take or leave which ever traditions you like πŸ™‚

Totally not a big deal to not do it! I think if you WANT to do it, then go for it! But don’t stress not doing it if you’re not attached to either tradition, I don’t think anyone actually thinks that it’s bad luck not to do it, it’s just a still tradition πŸ™‚

Totally up to you. I’m doing the “old, new, borrowed, blue” tradition because it means a lot to me and FH but we’re boycotting the bouquet and the garter tosses. Whatever floats your boat.

I dont think it matters iether way. Im doing it for fun, but i honetly dont think i would be cursed if i didnt. Plus it kinda helped me decide what i was wearing with my dress and made it easier.

If you don’t want to do it, then you don’t have to!  We did it because it’s a family thing.  As for garters, I didn’t do it.

You should do what feels right to you! We personally decided to do the “old, new, borrowed, blue” because it was important to our families. Despite some protests I refused to have my new husband stick his hand up my skirt in front of my father and grandfathers for a garter toss so we’re skipping that and the bouquet toss.
