Plan a Traditional Wedding
Deciding whether to plan a traditional wedding, elopement, or destination wedding can be a difficult task. Do you want to celebrate with all of your family and friends or maybe just some of them? That’s the best part about planning your wedding. You get to make all of the decisions and can make every aspect and detail of your day unique to you as a couple. Without further ado, here’s a short list of reasons why planning a more traditional wedding might be the best fit for you and your fiancé.
Celebrate with Your Loved Ones
One of the best reasons to plan a traditional wedding, or really, to have a wedding at all is to see and spend time with your loved ones! Weddings are special in that they gather all of your favorite people together at a joyful time in your life. Wedding days are almost like a family reunion except you get both families and all of your closest friends as well!
Document One of the Best Days of Your Life
Every good thing deserves to be celebrated and remembered! Your wedding anniversary is another day throughout the year to reminisce and relive one of the best days of your life. It also may be the most dressed up you’ll ever get and having photos from this day is something you’ll be able to cherish for the rest of your life. Additionally, it’s not common for family and friends to be in one place at the same time so getting photos to commemorate this moment is always a great idea.
Eloping Isn’t Something You’d Like To Do
Another one of our reasons to plan a traditional wedding is if eloping isn’t something you’ve ever wanted to do. For some couples having the chance to escape into nature with a photographer and officiant to celebrate their wedding day in an intimate setting is the best thing in the world. Other couples may want more of their family and friends present to help them celebrate the beginning of their marriage.
Both ways are great! Just remember, you get to plan each part of your wedding day! So, you get to choose what fits you best as a couple! And if you’re on the fence, check out this post we wrote to see if eloping is something you might want to do instead of planning a traditional wedding.
More Time to Experience and Savor Your Wedding Day
Planning a traditional wedding day gives you the opportunity to soak in each and every moment, big and small. You get to start your day getting ready with your wedding party drinking champagne and sharing stories or playing games. Once ready, you can walk to your first look where you’ll see your soon-to-be spouse for the first time that day. And after the ceremony, the day is yours to celebrate and enjoy as a married couple!
