The Top Traditions Every Couple Should Include in Their Wedding Day

There are many special wedding traditions that you can include in your day! So much so that it can often deter couples from using any of them. Naturally, you should never do anything that don’t resonate with you or fit in with who you are as a couple. However, there are a handful of traditions that every couple should at least consider because they add a unique and personal touch to your special day.

Cut the Cake Early On

Even though a cake is something to look forward to at a wedding, many guests see the cake cutting as a signal that they’re free to head home after the reception. To make sure that all guests feel comfortable and can leave when they need to, cut the cake shortly after dinner. This way, you and your guests can help yourselves whenever you’re ready to enjoy something sweet! It also won’t stand in the way of guests leaving at a time that’s convenient for them. This is especially true for older guests and those with young children.

Print Your Wedding Invites

Many of today’s couples create online invites but there’s just something about paper invites that sets the tone for a one-of-a-kind day. Not only can you get really creative with paper invites but they serve as a physical and visual reminder of the upcoming event. Plus, there’s nothing quite like receiving a beautiful invite in the mail!

Send Thank-You Notes

A thank-you note is a simple but sweet way to show your guests how much you appreciated their presence at your wedding and the present they gifted you with. If you had a big wedding, this task may seem a little daunting but it’s something that you and your partner can do together after your special day. It’s best to send out thank-you notes as soon as you can, ideally within a few days after you receive a gift. However, most couples fit it in after their honeymoon. If you want to make your thank-you notes extra special, you can always print a photo of the guests from the wedding and write a note on the back.

Spend Time with Your Guests

If you’re inviting a lot of guests, you may not be able to spend a lot of time with all of them. However, it’s always appreciated when the couple takes the time to walk around and thank everyone for attending. Whether you set up a receiving line to chat to everyone or make your way around the room after you’ve eaten, your guests would love to congratulate you personally!

Remember, this is your wedding day and you have the freedom to create your own traditions – traditions that you can even pass onto your children one day.
