As you approach your wedding, you’re going to get a lot of advice, and a lot of people will come up to you with some pretty silly-sounding rules about your big day. Well, guess what. It’s your day. Here are just a few of the rules we think every bride should break.
Wearing a Veil
Veils are pretty, but they just don’t go with all wedding dresses. Some brides like them and some don’t. You don’t have to break this rule, but we’d love to see some more interesting headgear on the beautiful brides walking down the aisle this year.
Tossing the Bouquet
Let’s face it. Not all of your single lady friends want to get married. Not all of them want to compete for the chance to get married next. Your bouquet is beautiful, and you spent a lot of time picking it out. We think you should preserve and keep it. There’s even a new trend of paper and jeweled bouquets that aren’t made from actual flowers. Why throw that away when you could keep it for your daughter’s wedding one day?
It Must Be White
White is beautiful, and it’s traditional, but if you don’t want a white wedding dress, you don’t have to wear one. What’s your favorite color? Would you prefer to wear something that will make your skin glow and your eyes stand out with their beautiful sparkle? You can! We give you permission to choose a gown in whatever color you like.
If you love the way your skin looks against darker colors, you could even be so bold as to wear a black gown on your wedding day.
Remember, it’s your day. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do, especially when it comes to your wedding style.
