plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I’m a huge proponent for personalizing your wedding details in a way that reflect your surroundings, your lifestyle and things you (and your FI) like.  And, because of I that, I love when brides switch it up and do something non-traditional.  It really says something when a bride and/or groom sort of “take control” of their wedding by doing what they want, whether it is something traditional or something not.

Like this bride, who had her bridesmaids carry lanterns instead of bouquets.

AND, they had rally towels made for their guests (I’m a sports fan, so I’m digging this idea).

Are you incorporating any non-traditional ideas into your wedding?

    We are switching up the father-daughter dance. It’s not our style to move from side to side to Butterfly Kisses (although it works amazingly for others). My dad and I are taking dance lessons so we can do a swing or jive for the father-daughter dance…sooo excited! 🙂

    @Kristen Love that idea. My dad and I are doing something fun for ours. It’s always fantastic when a couple can incorporate fun ideas!
