When it comes to weddings, there are standards that brides still uphold. Wearing something borrowed and obtaining a massive wedding cake is has always been a constant. Some standards, however, have a much more outdated look in today’s society. There are five rules that can easily be broken in half.

Please Don’t Stop The Music

Back then, it was considered taboo to use recorded music while walking down the aisle. Many weddings had live bands to help accommodate the bride and groom. Fortunately, today’s weddings are using recorded music more than ever. Sometimes, the married couple will go through skits when walking down the aisle.

Make The Getaway

After saying “I do,” there’s always the big afterparty with friends and family. This portion of the ceremony can be a bit troublesome, though. Back in the day, couples will simply stick around until the last guest leaves. Today, you can simply exit quickly in order to kickstart your honeymoon.

Head Over Heels

When you’re walking down the aisle, you’ll need something that gives a strong sense of comfort. There’s always been a stigma about wearing high heels down the aisle. There’s the chance of tripping and making a huge mess before making it to the altar. In today’s world, that’s a chance that you’re allowed to take.

It’s Time To Party

Bachelorette parties were the stuff of legends back when your parents got together. There was nothing more exciting than an elaborate celebration days before the wedding. Nowadays, they can be a very expensive disappointment. If you’re looking to save some cash, simply have a small get together with friends at a bar.

A Small Token

Whether you’re expecting 20 or 200 people, you should make them feel welcomed. Small favors should be given to your guests when they arrive at the ceremony. When it comes to favors, the sky’s the limit for what they can receive. From sunglasses to donuts, you can say “Thank you” with these gifts.
