To kickstart my return and tenderly (with writers block and finger cramps) jet myself back into the head seat at Alice, I’ve just found this groovy info graphic on wedding traditions to show you. I’m a big fan of breaking tradition and creating the kind of wedding the screams “this is us!!!” however, in saying that, I don’t think they should necessarily be wiped out – rather, pick and choose what means something to you, then either keep it, twist it or recreate it entirely yourselves.
After all, the world of weddings would never have moved on if all us Bride-ees stagnated in the traditions that have been around for donkey’s.
Woo hoo to new traditions too! Although right now I can’t think of any so here’s the where did it come from of some traditions you will definitely be familiar with:

My favourite tradition has to be Daddy walking the Bride up the aisle – I am a soppy romantic! I also know full-well that sometimes that just can’t happen, like it was in my case and so the tradition changed and I walked up the aisle with my Father-In-Law instead: a super proud moment that I now cherish after losing him three weeks ago. That moment was a tradition I happily broke!

Personally, I love the Kenyan tradition!! Brilliant!!!
Welcome back me and hello again, it feels great to be in the hot seat.
Weddings are full of memories. Do you have a favourite memory from your wedding or a wedding you attended?
I’ve never followed trends as I disliked being just one of the crowd so my love for things that are different, unusual, beautiful and stylistic that I’d had all my life transformed into Alice in Weddingland.
