    Wedding Traditions That You Simply Cannot Ignore

    Weddings anywhere around the world mean celebrations and happiness. This ceremony is not just about having fun and getting blessings from your near and dear ones. n every culture, at every corner of the world, there are specific traditions that everyone has to comply to. These traditions, which are now considered irrelevant, actually have a deep meaning seated in them. They have been a part of the culture for ages. In our time when it is difficult to grab a meal leisurely, many people consider that following these traditions will be nothing but a waste of time.

    Even though we have bid adieu to quite a few old traditions but there are still some of them whom we cannot ignore even in the modern-day weddings. Considering the meaning associated with these traditions, it is actually them that make a wedding more than any regular party. Let us see what all traditions have still managed to preserve themselves in the modern times.

    The stag party or the hen party

    The first and the foremost are the stag parties and the hen do. this one tradition has survived since a very long time and is still going strong. Stag parties and hen parties are probably the one tradition about which everyone is the most excited. Spending a gala time with their best friends, is something no groom or bride will ever bride. Now a day, these parties are not just restricted to a bar or a spa session, but people have begun going out on lavish trips before they finally enter their nuptial bond. These parties not only are meant for absolute fun, but the memories created in them are priceless.

    Wedding cake and wine

    This one is also still a compulsion in all the weddings. You remember the ‘purple wedding’ of King Geoffrey where he cuts the pie with his sword! It might be possible that having the wedding cake tradition is a modification to that since people like cakes more. After the wedding ceremony is over, the newly wed groom and the bride are supposed to cut the cake that symbolises their beginning in their marital bliss. From having a simple single layered cake to having a multi storey, fancy cake, anything is available in the market and you may choose it according to your budget and like.

    Wedding veil and the wedding dress

    The veil is an integral part of the bride’s dress. In the earlier times the bride’s face used to be covered with a veil to ward of evils and also it was considered to bring bad luck for the couple if the groom sees his bride’s face before the ceremony. Contemporarily, a wedding veil is probably considered just an inclusion in the gown to make it more beautiful. But people do still follow the tradition of having a veil.

    The wedding bouquet

    It is a long living tradition that the bride must carry a bouquet with her when she walks towards the altar for her ceremony. Later on, the bride is asked to throw the bouquet and whoever catches it, is considered the next one to get hitched. Well, maybe people did believe it in the olden times, but today probably it is only meant for fun in the wedding.

    Weddings all over the world are comprised of endless traditions that reflect our culture and beliefs. While we have lost most of them, the few of these traditions that have managed to stand through the test of time must not be ignored and incorporated in the wedding, even if only to have some more fun during the celebrations.

    Having an Unforgettable Wedding in Gozo the Little Sister Island of Malta

    Gozo is an island of around 26 square miles off the northwest coast of Malta. It is easily accessible by boat from that island. Gozo has a more rural character than Malta but is equally known for its glorious climate and golden beaches. These are just two reasons that make this little sister island of Malta an ideal place for an unforgettable wedding.

    Alternative Wedding Breakfast Feasts

    For any wedding, the food is an important element. You want your guests to be well looked after, and to go home happy and full of great-tasting food.

    When it comes to wedding breakfasts, there is far more choice than there used to be. Most venues are more than happy to be flexible which means you can adapt the food that you choose to better serve the tastes of you and your guests. Here are a few, slightly different approaches you could take:

    Alternative Wedding Breakfast Feasts

    Serve a hog roast

    Modern Hog Roast Machines are quite compact and can potentially be used indoors as well as outdoors. Importantly, you can cook far more than just whole hogs. The latest spit roasters can be used for beef or lamb joints as well as for gammon, whole turkeys, and chickens. Most people love the succulent, tasty meat that this style of cooking produces.

    Once cooked, everything can be served in a variety of ways. For a sit-down event, serving the meat sliced with a range of vegetables, sauces or gravy is a great approach. For a more casual wedding breakfast, the meat can be pulled from the bone and served in bread rolls or as part of a help-yourself-buffet.

    Hire some street vendors

    Another option for casual events is to invite a few of your favorite street vendors to set up their stalls and feed your guests. This is a great way to give everyone plenty of choice and ensure that you cater for all dietary needs.

    Do the catering yourself

    If you are on a tight budget and have a large enough home or garden, you could feed your guests yourself. With this option, you need to be organized and serve food that can be prepared well ahead of time. If you want to investigate this possibility this article is well worth reading. It is written by a couple who actually did their own wedding breakfast catering, so is full of practical advice.

    Serve up a luxurious garden party tea

    Garden party food usually goes down well. Think tasty sandwiches with the crusts cut off, trays of finger foods and miniature cakes. You need to serve it all on proper plates with nice cutlery and luxury drinks to make this style of food special enough for your wedding day.

    Opt for a beach party

    In some places, it is possible to hold your party on a beach. This can be a really special venue and opens up the opportunity for you to serve freshly barbecued fish and seafood. It is usually best to hire a private beach for this type of wedding reception. If you do choose this option, be sure to check whether you need a license.

    A sumptuous buffet

    Last, but by no means least, is a tasty buffet. This is perhaps the best way to make sure everyone gets to enjoy a good selection of food. Be sure to pay special attention to your elderly or infirm guests. You want them to be able to enjoy as much choice as everyone else. Usually, the other people on their table will automatically look after them. But, it is also wise to have a quiet word with someone on the table to make sure they are ready to step in and give them a hand, just in case.

    This year we get to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as a third Royal baby, so it’s going to be quite a busy year. Many people like to keep small keepsakes as a reminder of these historic events. Items from the Queen’s Wedding to the Duke of Edinburgh and her Coronation are now collectables, as well as those marking Prince Charles nuptials to Princess Diana. The latest set of Royals are just as popular and items marking their special days will no doubt become collectable in the next few years.

    This particular collection has a clean contemporary design in monochrome black and white. There are no photographs, that can quickly date and there are a choice of practical items for every day use or the commemorative decorative items. My personal favourite item is the commemorative tea. Imagine brewing a cuppa whilst settling down to watch the Royal Wedding on the TV.

    Grab yourself a slice of history with Royal Wedding Commemorative Designs – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. I know I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled on they day what will be this year’s wedding trends set by Harry and Meghan.
