Traditions are important. They are a way to celebrate our history, and weddings are full of them. Among the most popular wedding traditions are the throwing of the bride’s bouquet, the always popular white dress and, our favorite here at Your Wedding Dance, the groom and bride’s first dance as newlyweds! As much as I love traditions, I also think it’s important for your wedding to be a representation of who you are as a person and as a couple. Mixing tradition with personality is not always easy. They can sometimes overlap, but if done correctly, you won’t have to sacrifice either.

The dress is one of the wedding traditions most brides-to-be struggle with. Every bride wants a dress she can call her own, but white dresses are often limiting. One way to add personality to your wedding dress is by adding some color. Gwen Stefani did it beautifully. For her 2002 wedding, Gwen wore a dress that harmoniously combined the traditional wedding dress with her funky style. Designed by John Galliano, the custome-made dress was white on the top and pink on the bottom. Reese Witherspoon also did an excellent job in giving the traditional wedding dress a twist. Reese wore a light pink dress, but kept the style and cut classic and elegant. Accessories that pop can also bring some personality to your wedding dress. One great example is the always fashionista Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City.” For her wedding to Mr. Big, Carrie wore a feather on top of her head, representative of her fun and stylish personality. Accessories are also perfect for brides on a budget (learn more about how to accessorize your wedding dress on a budget here).


Another way to add personality to your wedding is through the newlywed’s first dance. If you are a fun and outgoing couple, why not create a choreography that’s representative of you? Two of our former students, Michael and Juliana (video above) decided to go with a fun choreography for their wedding dance. They looked amazing, and you can tell they were having a blast. Dance to a song that’s reminiscent of your relationship. Remember, the most important thing about your first dance as a married couple is to have fun!

Creating a theme wedding is also a good way to incorporate tradition and personality. For her wedding to Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian came up with a black-and-white theme wedding that created a sense of sophistication. One thing to be aware of when having a theme wedding is that less is more. Sometimes people go a little crazy with their theme and their wedding can end up looking like a Halloween party.

Incorporating personality is a must when it comes to your wedding. At the end of the day, you want your wedding to be memorable for you and for your guests. Don’t be afraid to stand out and, most importantly, enjoy yourself.
