Weddings bring about many traditions that are tried and true. There’s the bouquet toss, the best man speech, the first dance, the cake smash, the father walking his daughter down the aisle, the throwing of bird seed (rice is bad for birds) as the newlyweds depart, freezing the top tier of the cake to eat at the first year anniversary etc.......ideas of traditions to honor and celebrate the wedding in years to come.
