Back in my day, getting married was special because it meant out of 7 billion people on the planet, you had found the one person you want to spend your ENTIRE life with. After all, what could possibly be more special than that? These days, however, it seems that the most important and “special” part of marriage is the wedding day itself. I mean, if your wedding isn’t the most Instagrammable wedding of the year, then what’s the point of even having one!? Urgh.
Luckily, there does seem to be a trend of people out there now who are fighting against all this “Perfect Wedding” malarky, and BuzzFeed is here to help prove it! Yep, that’s right. BuzzFeed went ahead and asked their very own community to tell them about a wedding rule (or “tradition”, to put it another way) they went against on their big, beautiful day… and let me tell you, you will NOT be disappointed.
It’s safe to say I’ve pretty much fallen in love with every single one of these couples, and if I had my chances to do my wedding day all over again, there are definitely a few rules I know I’d break after reading this list! But don’t just take my word for it… keep scrolling and find out for yourself!
1. “I wore a jumpsuit I found on Asos.”
2. “We walked down the aisle together. We were making the biggest commitment of our lives, and we wanted to walk into that moment already supporting each other.”
This is one is a really sweet sentiment. You’re making that big debut together in front of your friends and family, which is just lovely! For me, however, one of my fondest memories from my wedding day is walking down the aisle towards Walt and seeing the tears in his eyes when he saw me for the first time in my dress! (And no, it wasn’t just because I told him that if he didn’t cry I’d knock his bloomin’ head right off of his shoulders!)
