Don’t Believe These Major Wedding Ceremony Myths!

infographic: 2.4 million weddings are performed yearly

Every year, an average of 2.4 million weddings are performed in the United States. And between finding the right wedding hall, catering services, reception venue, and more, planning the entire ordeal from start to finish can seem like an impossible task. But when planning your wedding ceremony, remember that it’s up to you and your significant other to decide how you want the day to play out.

Unfortunately, there are still some myths circulating when it comes to staying authentic during your ceremony and avoiding superstition. Being aware can help you plan your day as you see fit. Here are just a few common but outdated myths and misconceptions about your wedding ceremony.

‘My wedding dress has to be white
This myth has no real rhyme or reason, making it nothing more than something that’s done just because ‘that’s the way it’s always been done.’ The truth is that you can wear any color dress you want during your wedding ceremony — in fact, it doesn’t even have to be a dress. When it really comes down to it, you can wear whatever you want to your wedding ceremony. Break the tradition and wear what makes you happy!

Seeing the bride before the wedding is ‘bad luck’
This antiquated myth has no truth to it whatsoever. It’s nothing more than a superstition that adds unnecessary stress to your wedding day morning. If you want to keep your outfit a mystery for your significant other until your wedding day, that’s perfectly fine, but don’t let it be because you fell for this outdated misconception.

All authentic weddings have a bouquet toss
This myth is more of an opinion, but it’s not very well thought out. After all, who’s to say what constitutes a truly ‘authentic’ wedding? Authenticity should simply mean that the couple is truly in love and ready to be bonded to each other for life. You can’t get more authentic than that. Don’t feel like you have to have certain activities or events at your wedding to make it ‘authentic’ — the love shared between you and your significant other is as authentic as it gets.

Ultimately, about 40% of brides and grooms-to-be are looking for unusual venues that better reflect their personality. Understanding the truth behind these wedding ceremony misconceptions is the key to planning a unique wedding that truly reflects your tastes.
