  1. The Gown

It has gone so stereotypical of people if you are not in a white wedding gown you don’t look like a bride. Well, let’s change the mentality. A bride is a bride, be it in a gown or in wrestling dress (Metaphor). You are the wizard of your wedding. You have arranged the night for the people who have gathered. On this nightwear what you feel like. No gown can tell you if you are a bride or not. You can take the gown, cut it short or throw it out of the window and get something much cozier.

  1. The Venue

Gone are those days when you had to postpone your weddings if the Churches aren’t available for your wedding. Couples nowadays are going towards open banquets with a wedding which is not religious at all. So people now make their wish, find the best spot to get engaged. Find and buy wedding cards online, and just get married. No traditional churches to have all the ceremonies into.

  1. The white ring

What is more beautiful than a white solitaire diamond? For ages now people have been proposing to their future wives with a big white diamond ring. Though it will never go out of fashion as they say “A diamond is for a lifetime”, but what if it does not suit your personality. People today follow a lifestyle which is more inspired by rock instead classics. Which means people love to wear black. So how about next time when you propose a girl, get something which suits her personality.

  1. The reception

The venue for a reception after the wedding ceremony has been an issue for a long time. Some churches do not have sufficient space to maintain a buffet. So if the wedding can be at a different location than why can’t be the reception. Take your time plan an amazing reception and make people fall in love with the newlyweds.

So here are some of the traditions which can be altered and still be with the society.
