A wedding is one of the most special and memorable occasions in the life of many people. It is an important day for any couple that is about the joyous celebration of their love, commitment, and union. Over the years, wedding traditions have been shaped by different cultures, religions and customs. But today couples are opting for more personalized, unique and meaningful weddings that reflect who they are. This can be a daunting task, but with a little creativity and planning, it is possible to create a unique and special wedding experience. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!

How to break wedding traditions?

Consider the type of ceremony and reception you would like to have and the atmosphere you are trying to create. The tradition we most want to break is hosting the event in a salon because getting married in nature is truly magical. From the rolling hills to the sun setting over the sea, to the gentle breeze that sweeps through the trees, nature provides a beautiful backdrop for a romantic and intimate wedding ceremony.

Another tradition that can be broken is the bride wearing white. More and more couples are choosing to have a dress that reflects their individual style. This could be anything from a short and sassy outfit to a dress with a bold color or pattern. Check out M’s black dress on our portfolio.

Unusual activities at weddings are also becoming increasingly popular as couples look for unique ways to make their special day stand out. From alternative venues to interactive activities, there are a variety of ways to make your wedding memorable. For example, you can add a tattoo spot, invite your guests to take a pre-wedding tour or experience… If you are in Puerto Escondido, skydiving or mezcal tasting can be part of the celebration.

The wedding cake is an excellent opportunity to leave an impression. They come in all shapes and sizes, from classic white-tiered cakes to modern and unique ones. What if instead of cake, you make a tower of brownies, or if you place a mini cake on each table so that your guests can serve themselves the portion they like the most? Each type of cake has its own unique features that can make a wedding celebration even more special. 

Another way to break wedding traditions is to forget the formal sit-down dinner in favor of something more casual. Many couples are choosing to serve food in stations, family-style or even a buffet. This allows for more flexibility and allows guests to pick and choose what they want to enjoy.

If you’re looking for an interactive activity for your guests, consider having a few wedding games. Games like trivia, bingo, and charades are always a hit, and you can even create custom games according to your theme. One of our favorites is poker! This a great way to add a bit of friendly competition to your wedding day. You can hire a professional dealer to guide your guests through the games and even provide prizes for the winners. 

Whether you are looking for a traditional ceremony and reception or something more unique, there are plenty of available options. With a bit of imagination and planning, we can create a wedding that is unique, meaningful and memorable for you and your guests.
