- You Do Not Have to Follow Regular Wedding Traditions

Straight-sex weddings have so many traditions and expectations that are outdated. On the other hand, one of the joys of same-sex marriages is that there are no rules. The only thing that is a must is your “I dos”. So instead of choosing outdated traditions and trying to decide which you can stomach, how about creating yours? This is a unique way to start your new life together and will make your wedding day even more memorable.
Do you feel like walking down the aisle by yourself? Then go ahead and do just that. You could also decide to throw a tie instead of the traditional bouquet or garter. It is entirely up to you. Your wedding is a special day that you are free to claim and celebrate in whatever way you deem fit. How awesome is that?
- Personalise, Personalise, Personalise!
As we said earlier, take your wedding day and make it your own. Your guests should be able to come to your celebration and recognise elements of you and your partner on display. Do you fancy two bridal showers for two brides? Go ahead and make it happen! It could also be a buck’s night for two grooms or even a day of pampering for one groom instead of a wild night of partying. The celebration is yours to do with as you please.
The thing with same-sex weddings is that your happiness is what matters. With a bit of creativity, you can come up with many beautiful options that you’ll love. Then you can decide which one works best for you as a couple. Don’t also forget to keep your loved ones in mind, especially those that you’d love to celebrate with. So, to get started, book your perfect venue and secure your preferred date using BookYourWeddingDay.com, get started with your planning and then see how it goes.
