Changing Traditions
01 Nov, 2013

Many of the traditions that we follow in weddings today have their origins in Elizabethan or Renaissance eras and modern day changes have been made.

  • VOWS – the phrase “Honor and obey” has been replaced with various alternatives that reflect equality in the relationship.
  • BRIDAL ESCORTS – More and more brides and couples are having both parents escort them down the aisle. In some ceremonies, the groom comes down the aisle with both his mother and father, followed by the bride on the arms of both of her parents. This honors both parents and recognizes each of their roles in preparing their sons/daughters for this day. In fact, if the bride’s father is not available or this is a second marriage, a bride may choose to walk down the aisle alone or she may choose anyone to escort her. A sibling, her mother, her grandfather, her son or a friend may do the honors.
  • PARENTAL ROLES – Parents are no longer limited to escort duty. Many grooms are choosing their father to be the best man and brides are asking Mom to be the matron of honor.
  • RECEIVING LINES - These may still be part of a very formal wedding where the ceremony and reception are at different venues, but for smaller weddings with the same site for ceremony and reception, more and more couples are foregoing the receiving line and instead making it a point to acknowledge and thank each guest at his/her table throughout the evening.
