- Wedding: October 2018
I just wanted to share a positive experience my DH and I had during our wedding day.
I was planning to follow through with all the suspicion-based-traditions of hiding from your groom before you walk down the aisle. Well that’s not how it went and I’m so grateful.
After some drinks with the bridesmaids, we spent the night before the wedding together and had a little fun in the morning 😉 He asked we do this because he sleeps better with me and didn’t want to wake up with social anxiety and confusion about what to do all day (as wedding days are crazy).
We ate breakfast together with our friends and family in the hotel block. Good to start off the day with seeing these awesome people and relaxing.
He saw me in between hair and makeup appointments because I needed him to do laundry before the honeymoon (thanks babe!).
After me and the bridesmaids took our photos, they got caught up in some frenzy while getting dressed and I had no idea where the hell they ran off too. Thankfully my husband was ready to go, so I had him drive me to the wedding venue, all dolled up. It was good to know that he made it on time and with no confusion. The bridesmaids eventually figured out their shit and joined us too 🙂
We had a first look, mostly because of a conflict with a very important football game that we needed to watch at the reception.
Because of all of this, I was never bothered to be “tucked away” and I had a chance to talk to guests before the ceremony even started. I had a lot of compliments on how relaxed I was and how it was cool that I just didn’t give a shit about hiding from everyone. That matches my personality, so that honestly meant a lot. We didn’t have an emotional ceremony, but whatever. I had fun and my husband was relaxed and enjoyed the whole day together.
Y’all do you! This worked for us!
What other traditions did you break?
