This infographic below created by Becca of Chris & Becca Photography breaks down some of the ways traditions are changing. Here’s Becca to tell us more:

Now more than ever, couples are breaking tradition and doing things their own way. Every couple is unique and may have their own reasons for breaking tradition, whether it’s because they find something too cheesy or they want their event to reflect their unconventional personalities. From major shifts in trends (like not taking the groom’s last name!) to small details like whether people proposing asked for permission or blessing from the father of the bride, brides and grooms are breaking the mold.

This shift in trends could be in part because couples are opting not to stress as much about the details of their wedding day, and instead focus planning an incredible party for themselves and their loved ones to enjoy. And traditions aren’t dying out entirely – many brides still opt to wear all white gowns, despite blush and champagne colors becoming more popular. The most important thing is that it’s become easier for couples to customize their day to perfectly fit themselves, rather than worrying about fulfilling traditional customs!

Great, thanks, guys! For more information about Chris & Becca Photography, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Sorry, couldn’t resist… really though, there’s nothing sweeter than a yummy dessert station at a wedding.

Well, now, you can say “yes” to the … ice cream? This week Blue Bell introduced a Bride’s Cake flavor, and re-introduced their 09′ Groom’s Cake flavor, sure to delight couples looking for an alternative to the traditional wedding cake.

What exactly is it? The Bride’s Cake is almond ice cream with white cake pieces surrounded by a rich amaretto cream cheese icing swirl, while the Groom’s Cake is chocolate ice cream with chocolate cake pieces, chocolate-coated strawberry hearts plus swirls of strawberry sauce and chocolate icing.

Uh, sounds delish.

Just fired your maid of honor? You’re not alone. It’s apparently common for friendships to be torn apart over wedding requests and certain tensions that can arise between girlfriends throughout the wedding planning process. One business, Bridesmaid for Hire, has recognized this void and is offering to help fill it with, well, your very own “professional bridesmaids” for rent and other offbeat requests. The cost? As little as $150 for coaching to up to $1,500 for a full-service package. So ladies, what’s the verdict? Would you consider it, especially if you had the option to keep it on the low? (They’ll even plan a backstory of how you met and create an alias!) Hah, crazy.
