Wedding traditions

What traditions will you bring two your Pensacola Beach wedding? Will you stick width something old, something new, something borrowed, or something blue? Or maybe it will be your grandmother’s locket that has a picture of your grandparents when they got married. bride with kidsWill it be a coin you got when the two if you win on your first vacation together? Were you jump the broom? There are even beach wedding traditions such as taking that first walk along the beach together as husband and wife. I’ve been seeing new traditions springing up everywhere. One of my favorite ones is the first dance. The most recent unique dance video I have seen at a wedding is one where the groom and his groomsmen are professional dancers and break it down for the bride who is sitting on the dance floor and laughing and smiling. I’ve also seen bridesmaids and groomsmen come dancing down the aisle together with the bride dancing down the aisle with her father. I love seeing all these happy videos. A couple years back there was that big trend to run into the Gulf of Mexico in your wedding gown. Also known as trashing the dress. We have several funny pictures of brides and grooms running into the water fully clothed. I have to admit that after their ceremony on the sand that watching them run into the water is funny. Especially when no one else knows it. One couple had not told anyone they were going to do it and use it as saying the shocked looks from their guests. Never a dull moment.

The groom told me he couldn’t find shirts along the way from Louisiana so he stopped where they got the cake and bought the shirts. So this wedding on the beach was going along very smoothly. While we were standing by the Gulf of Mexico we saw dolphins very close to the shore. One of the girls thought the dolphins were sharks because of the fins they saw. Everyone got a giggle. Soon here comes the bride. She’d looked beautiful in her gown and veil. That early in the morning there were only a few fishermen on the beach. So we had quite a bit of privacy.
