Redefining Traditional

If you were organically introduced to me before I spoke a word, you could say I am average girl with brown hair, fairly short with a nice smile. In a single glance you would say oh she is pretty traditional.

The thing is, despite my traditional so to speak looks I thoroughly enjoy breaking traditions and molds.

One of the most thrilling parts of my job is shocking the advertisers that walk in my doors with the knowledge that I have in my industry and how well I know my numbers.

The most baffling thing to me lately (due to my serious relationship with this hunk) regarding tradition is wedding day madness.

Do you have any idea why people have white three tiered wedding cakes? Me either. But people do it weekend after weekend during the wedding season. A little nuts (if you ask me)!

I would love to know what people did or are planning to do to break traditional wedding boundaries! Do you want to play heavy metal at your reception? Did you pour light and dark coffee grinds together instead of sand?

How are you redefining traditional for generations to come?

  1. Hey Kate:

    We had a very non-traditonal wedding. We were married in the general store of our old neighborhood. Our officiant was my best friends husband. I only had one maid of honor/bridesmadi and my husband had only had his brother as his groomsman. We served cocktails before the ceremony and guest were encouraged to bring their beverage to the ceremony.

    We wrote our own ceremony and each had our parents do a reading.

    We catered our own reception and we didn't have a 3-tiered cake, we had friends and family bring dessert - pies, brownies, cookies, you name it and we had a single 9-inch caramel cake to cut into.

    I still get complimented on how personal our wedding day was and to me that is the very best I could hope for.

    You'll find a way to honor the traditions that are important to you and thats all that really matters.
