I wouldn't consider myself offbeat, but there are a lot of wedding traditions I'm not doing...for example: I'm walking alone down the aisle because my dad doesn't deserve to walk me and my mom doesn't want to (she'd rather watch). The pastor isn't asking who gives me away or if there is anyone who doesn't think we should be married. We aren't doing a unity candle because we think it's a little silly and pointless. I'm not wearing a veil and we aren;t doing the tosses at the reception. Our invites don't have our parents names and are so informal (literally says David adn Christina are getting married. join us at this place at this time).
are any of you doing these traditions or not? what are your reasons?
