6 Common Wedding Misconceptions You Shouldn’t Believe

One of the best things about weddings is the fact there’s no standard or specific way to hold it.  Different people have different tastes, traditions, and beliefs. One rule simply can’t apply to all. Conversely, many misconceptions and ‘rules’ still attempt to alter or dictate the way weddings should be held. Below, we listed a number of misconceptions that we believe can be disregarded if it doesn’t match your style.

 

 

  • You Need to Leave for Honeymoon the Day After the Wedding

 

If you want to have a honeymoon immediately after your wedding, great!. But if you need time to unwind,your work schedule won’t allow it or you don’t have the money for your dream honeymoon, it’s okay to hold it off! The honeymoon should be fun and fit your schedule.

 

 

  • The Bride Must Wear White

 

Brides are often associated with white wedding gowns. Even though this is now labeled tradition, it’s not a hard and fast rule. Brides can wear anything they want and in any color they want. There is a unique range of looks and styles for every kind of bride and it doesn’t have to be white.

 

 

  • Groom Can’t See the Bride 

 

If you want to see your bride before the wedding, then go see her! Some people believe  that it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding.  If you are not one of those people, then it’s perfectly fine to see your partner before the wedding.

 

 

  • You Need A Cake

 

A traditional wedding cake is not fitting for every couple. Or maybe you don’t find value in a formal wedding cake. There are lots of other, innovative ways to forgo a formal wedding cake, or cake at all! Maybe try a small cake just for cutting, or do a completely different dessert display! 

 

 

  • You Have to Get Married on Saturday 

 

While this is the most popular day of the week for weddings, you don’t have to have yours that day. It’s fine if you prefer a Friday or even the middle of the week, like a Tuesday-if that works well for your schedule. Just make sure to also think about if that will work for your guests. 

 

 

  • You Must Have A Playlist for Your DJ

 

While DJs encourage you to provide a list of songs that you would love for your wedding, they do not want you to create an entire playlist. As a matter of fact, we suggest that you give us some songs and genres and then we pick the music based on the current environment and the vibe you want. Our job is, infact, to pick those songs! 

 

We sit with our clients to understand them and what they want. T then tailor a playlist according to that and handpick a DJ or DJs we believe would suit them well.
