What Wedding Traditions Should We Toss?

Dear Readers,

I want to thank you all so much for your wonderful input regarding my upcoming wedding!  I have so enjoyed reading your comments and suggestions.  I read some of them to my close friends last night and we started to discuss the ways weddings have changed and remained the same over the different generations. This led to a discussion on traditions, ones that we thought should still be followed and others that have become outdated.

I wanted to ask all of you to share your favorite and least favorite wedding traditions.  For example, should there still be bouquet and/or garter toss? Are sweetheart tables the way to go?  Should the bride avoid bold colors?

I’d love to know your thoughts!
