What wedding traditions did you keep? My mother is Norwegian, to honor my heritage in addition to a lovely dessert bar, we also ordered a kranskakke which is a very traditional cake to serve at a wedding. The legend goes the number of rings the newly married couples pops off will be how many children they have.
What wedding traditions did you ditch? A big bridal party and bridesmaids! We wanted a very intimate wedding with only our family and closest friends, so with such a small group it seemed silly to have a big bridal party. Each of our brothers stood beside us. Having my brother as my "maid of honor" was simply perfect!
