I would say that my ceremony is traditional but outside and the reception is us. We are doing things because we want to do them, not because of tradition:) It is vintage though so there are those elements present…I am actually finding it hard to answer this question because I think our wedding is both…….hahaha

hahahha, what a question. J is surprisingly traditional. I am flowy non-traditional bohemian type. And we both love a good relaxed time. Our wedding had the traditional wedding vows, Korean ceremony and signature spiritual touches – ie. wish flags surrounded our ceremony site. good question.

I would say the majority of it was traditional though some elements were untraditional to other family members.  The fact that our wedding was outside and not in a Catholic church was very unconventional to my in-laws (though thankfully they were ok with it).  The songs I played for the procesional and recessional were also what some people would consider to be unconventional because they were actual songs, not church music or the “traditional” wedding songs.

I would say that ours is a mix of both. I am wearing an ivory dress and we are having a wedding, but there is no church, no veil, no sit-down dinner, no first dance, no parent’s dances (just one to honor my parents), no bouquet toss, no garter toss, and we might be doing a first look. There will be  a ceremony with readings, etc., flowers and music (DIY) and dancing.

Now that I list all these things it seems a little more non-traditional! Haha!
