What is a conventional wedding?

What is a conventional wedding? The truth is that these days there isn’t one! If there was one good thing to come out of Covid, it was a shift in mindset when it comes to weddings and what a conventional wedding looks like. More and more couple are planning a day that is what they want, whether that be shaving down the guest lists, ditching the formalities or even just eloping.

The Big White wedding our parents had is starting to look a little different and we love it. With the ability to be able to bespoke all aspects of your wedding, couples are able to put their stamp on a very special day. Whether that be choosing to use a celebrant like the lovely Georgina from The Fox Red Celebrant rather than a registrar or having food tuck vans or a mobile cocktail bars, like our faves The Thirsty Farriers , rather than a sit down wedding breakfast. Or even having all the trimmings of a traditional wedding with a very small select few. At Vicki’s Bridal Boutique, we absolutely love hearing all our brides plans and then seeing them come to life on their big day. We also have the privilege of meeting lots of different wedding vendors that allow couples to make their wedding visions come to life. Here are some of the wedding traditions that some of our brides have put their own stamp on:

Jenny & Adam ditched the wedding cake! Neither of them eat much cake and after going to many weddings where it had been left, they decided to put the money towards their amazing band instead.

Claire & James decided to leave the family politics behind and take 10 close friends up to Scotland for the weekend for their big ‘Green’ Wedding. They had all the trimmings, the cake, the wedding breakfast, the castle, the photographer and Claire had a beautiful forest green ball gown, all the traditions you would expect from a traditional wedding just shared with a select few.

Many of our Kelsey Rose gowns have been the dress of choice for an elopement from Scotland to The Seyshalls. Even if you are sneaking away to share this special just the two of you, as a bride you want to feel special, and Kelsey Rose is a great designer offering a more relaxed dress with all the special elements of a wedding dress.

Many of our brides have also chosen to have a Teepee wedding, taking all formality out of the day and giving them the ability to really go to town on all the things they want for the day and not what comes in a package.

The most important thing when it comes to deciding what you want your wedding to look like is the two of you! Decide what the two of you want from your Big Day from the size of the wedding to the small details that makes it unique to you. Have fun with it because when it comes to your wedding, there are no rules.
