You CAN Go Your Own Way

BY GUEST BLOGGER CRYSTAL ADAIR-BENNING

It’s true… you really CAN go your own way when it comes to planning a wedding. You can get married in yards of tulle and lace infront of 300 or in a simple sheath on the beach or under a tuscan sun. You can choose to have the whole world watch via webcam or keep it intimate and private without telling a soul. You can host a breakfast, lunch, brunch, cocktails only or maybe just cake… cause, well, cake.

Why is it that so many brides and grooms get stuck in the rut of “wedding”?

They think a wedding means there is only one way to do it properly. Pshaw! So NOT true, my friends. I’ve got 15 years of weddings under my belt and no two have ever been the same. Even if they have similar elements. Know what makes it different? The two people pledging their eternal love and devotion. Yep, your hearts make it different. The trappings of food, beverage, music, decor… all just extra stuff that shows us who you are because YOU choose it.

So, can you go your own way?

Absolutely. A “traditional” wedding basically includes:

  • ceremony filled with legal approvals to “make it official”
  • a couple who loves one another and WANTS to be a family
  • most of the time there’s some kind of food/drink to celebrate afterwards
  • most have a photographer to “capture” the moment 

What you do, above and beyond, is all up to you. So let your amazing AWESOME FLAG FLY!!!

Here are some ways to “go your own way”:

  • incorporate your beloved pets
  • choose a location that has MEANING to you
  • change up the menu (sushi, noodle bar, cake served 3 ways, tapas… what you love)
  • if white’s not right for you to wear… go colour! Your day; Your way.
  • invite nobody, your dog only, your best friend, the whole world.
  • make sure you marry for love… and focus on marriage first over wedding.

How will you “go your own way” on your wedding day?
