7 Important Details for Your Traditional Wedding in Texas

Social distancing has made a lot of couples rethink the plans that they had for their wedding. It might have had you reminiscing and deciding that when it comes to your Texan wedding, you’d like to have a traditional ceremony just for the heck of it. That’s great! Here are some things that you can include on your wedding day to get just that.

· Suits for The Groom

There are lots of options for grooms now when it comes to weddings. But if you’re trying to go traditional, nothing beats a black tuxedo and tie!

· Traditional Seating

For a traditional wedding, the bride’s family and friends are expected to be on the left while those of the groom are to be on the right. The grandparents of the groom are also seated before those of the bride. If you’d like this at your event no problem. Just get an usher that will help seat your guests for you.

· Aisle Runner

An aisle runner that is rolled out for the bride and her attendants to walk down is a great way to go traditional. The usher enlisted above can complete their duties by doing this.

· Readings

At traditional weddings, one or two readings that are often selected by the officiant, help reflect the religious elements of the ceremony. The couple can also select the readings and they can be done by a close friend or family member.

· The Receiving Line

Traditionally, the receiving line consisted of both mothers, the newlyweds and the female attendants at the wedding. It was done at the end of the ceremony and guests walked through to begin the wedding reception.

· Tiered Wedding Cake

For traditional weddings, the cake to go for is a 3-tiered wedding cake. It is timeless and will probably never go out of style.

· A Grand Departure

In weddings of old, the couple were the first to leave the reception through a line of guests. The guests armed with petals, rice or other things could then shower the newlyweds as they headed to a car waiting to whisk them away. If you’ll be going traditional, you should add this.
