Here at Warehouse 215, we see the wedding trends come and go, but there are still countless couples who adopt most of the classic traditions that have been passed down for years. In a society that is ever-evolving, both brides and grooms have to decide which traditions relate to their beliefs, the values of their relationship and style as a couple. Let’s dive in!
Matching Bridesmaids Dresses
It has been customary for all bridesmaids to wear the exact same dress in the same color. Mostly to keep anyone from over-shadowing the bride and her dress. More recently, brides have opted for either different color, same style dresses or a chosen dress color each bridesmaid must wear.
This tradition has been more recently challenged by couples with sweet treats like donuts, cookies, pie, and more. If cake alternatives are something you are considering, checkout our blog with lots of fun ideas here!
We all know this one! Maybe you like this custom, maybe you think it’s clique, but the original idea behind catching the bouquet. Which is tossed by the bride in a crowd of unmarried women, is meant to bring luck to whomever catches it so that they may find a mate and marry. To each her own!
This is definitely one of those traditions that is carried on by the majority of couples after their wedding day, and for good reason! Whether you spend a ton of money flying across the country or have a staycation in town. The whole point is to take some time to yourselves as a newly married couple and enjoy each other’s company without all of life’s stresses, even just for a bit.
