Everyone wants to do things differently at their wedding to ensure the experience is uniquely their own. However, that hasn’t stopped couples from engaging in similar traditions on their big day. These are things that are stereotypically associated with weddings, from fathers giving away their daughters to grooms carrying their brides over the threshold. Of course, while many people might still follow some of these traditions, it seems they’re no longer as popular as they used to be.
Giving away the bride
For years, women have turned to their fathers to walk them down the aisle and ‘give them away.’ However, the idea that a bride is someone’s property to hand over to her groom has attracted a lot of criticism recently.
That’s why some couples now forgo the tradition altogether. Moreover, brides who still engage in it often do so with a twist. Rather than being walked down the aisle by their father, they do it with someone else instead.
