Unconventional Bridal Parties

Given that weddings themselves are a tradition, there's no way around the fact that tradition is a big part of any wedding. Of course, no one says you have to follow tradition to a tee. We've compiled a few ideas you may want to incorporate for a modern take on many popular bridal party traditions.

Non-matching bridesmaids:

There was a time that requiring your bridal party to dress head-to-toe in matching attire was a must. You’ve been on the receiving end of the tradition more than you care to remember, and the thought of it happening at your wedding makes you cringe. Skip it!

To begin, you may consider picking coordinating patterns or a fun combination of colors; depending on the number of bridesmaids you have, dress every other girl in one of the two.

Another idea is to give the bridesmaids guidelines. For example, you may request that they stick to a certain fabric and length, but give them freedom to choose something that reflects their individual style.

Finally, you may want to give each bridesmaid a specific color that coordinates with, or complements your wedding colors. This way you ensure that no one will clash, but they will most likely be thrilled at the opportunity to choose their own dresses.

Animals are people too:

Well, not really, but ask anyone who has a pet, and they will tell you, their pet is as much a member of the family as any human relation. If you can’t stand to leave your furry friend behind on the big day, consider a unique way to include him/her in to traditional wedding party roles. Ring bearers, flower girls, even ushers & escorts are all perfect jobs for dogs; even certain cats!

Man of Honor:

If you have a male best friend, there is no reason to leave him out of the bridal party. The _____ of Honor position should be given to the person closest to you, and for many, that person might not be female. Consider having a Man of Honor in place of the traditional Maid of Honor role.

Plan a spa weekend, not a bachelorette party:

If your idea of fun does not involve a weekend 8 girls and salacious amounts of out of control parties, consider a spa getaway instead. Not only will this help you to relax before the big day, chances are many members of the bridal party will be secretly relieved at the change in tradition.
