Wedding Traditions: What to keep and what to cut

It’s your wedding, your way and that means doing away with anything that doesn't speak to you as a couple even if they are traditionally included in a wedding day. What traditions do you consider keeping and which should you consider cutting? We asked our Stylists. 

Garter Toss - Cut.
This is one we can firmly say is on the out. The Garter toss is always a little bit awkward to watch as a guest and to perform as the couple.

Cake cutting - Keep.
We still LOVE a cake cutting moment, especially when modernised with late night flash photography and a killer second look. This moment signals it is time to get the party started.

Something old, new, burrowed and blue - Cut.
Although a nice excuse to include something special from Grandma, we think you should include and wear things because you really love them - not just because it fits into a rhyme.

Veil -  Keep. 
The veil is going nowhere. We are OBSESSED with how Brides are playing with this tradition, customising their veils and using it to add drama to their wedding day look.

Matching Bridesmaids - Cut.
Mismatched Bridesmaid dresses are a trend that not only keeps your maids happy and comfortable but photographs amazingly! Play with not only mismatched colours but different fabrics and prints.
