Honoring Your Family, And Their Traditions, At Your Wedding

Your wedding celebration will gather your friends, and your family members, to experience your commitment to your partner. While every guest matters, the presence of family is significant – after all, your marriage will mark your entry into your partner’s family, and vice versa. To reflect this, you may want to find extra little ways you can pay tribute to relatives during your wedding ceremony and reception. Siblings can be excited to serve in your wedding party, and your parents will typically enjoy a place in your ceremony procession. What can you do for other relatives who don’t fit these roles as neatly? Through tradition, and acknowledgement, you can help include your families in your special day.  

Take Time To Talk To Your Family About Important Traditions Or Symbols

While you work out your planning details, talk to your family members (including your partner’s family members) about any important traditions you should know about. There may be a meaningful piece of jewelry they can have you wear, or you can select the same flower used in the bouquets held by other members of your family. Even a small gesture can be significant. Heirloom items often serve as a touching offering when you look for that special “something borrowed.”

Creating A Special Corsage Or Boutonniere For Family Members Not In The Wedding Party

You can use corsages and boutonnieres to help family members stand out during your wedding celebration. These can be ordered from your florist, and selected to match your wedding colors. If you prefer, you can take on the task of making them yourself. This can be a popular choice among couples who want to host a DIY wedding event.
