We’re exchanging rings. That’s a tradition. 😀

Other than that the ceremony is probably going to be pretty untraditional.

Family Traditions :

Dollar Dance, much frowned upon on the bee but my family members look forward and expect it.

Garter/Bouquet toss.

Dancing during reception. Again, expected. Also, it’d pretty traditional in my family to have a Dinner reception, either plate or buffet. Usually my family receptions last [assuming the ceremony is in the early evening], until at LEAST midnight.

Drinks/Open Bar. Could probably get away with a cash bar, but I’m doing open.

Other Traditions :

Sand Ceremony


And I think that’s about it, as I wouldn’t consider a candy buffet or photo booth traditional.

I really want to do the sand ceremony but Fiance isn’t so keen on the idea. We are having a traditional full Catholic mass so it’s already going to be long and that would just be one more thing to add in….

Full Catholic Mass (Although I’m pushing to remove communion due to the number of non-catholics attending)

Saving our “first look” for the walk down the aisle at Church.

We are NOT seeing each other before the ceremony. I will probably end up doing the something borrowed, something blue, lalala thing AND a first dance. That’s about it.
