Keep a few wedding reception traditions – I’ve noticed many post-millennial brides tend to forego the wedding reception traditions of yesteryear – the bouquet toss, cake cutting, removing the garter, rice throwing, etc. But, hold on…this is my appeal to you. Do them anyway. Why? Photographically, they round out the timeline of your reception well. I know these photographs may seem corny today, but looking back on your wedding day 10 or 20 or 30 years from now, these traditions will add a certain charm to your wedding album…even if you are somewhat embarrassed, apprehensive, or awkward. Your natural expression is part of the fun! Plus, your kids will enjoy your photographs much more than you will. So don’t be afraid to dive in and embrace all the cheesiness of it!
