Wedding tradition

If you could change or eliminate one wedding tradition, what would it be?

  1. The father giving away the bride like property. Haven’t we gotten past that yet? (For the record, both of my parents walked the aisle with me). And a wedding-related tradition – the asking the father for permission. What’s THAT all about?


  2. I didn’t think there were any hard and fast rules about weddings any more. I guess we could definitely do without the father giving the bride away.


  3. I pretty much have no problem with the religious side of a Jewish ceremony, in which both parents escort both bride and groom. That’s support, not property. (A woman who has been independent and is older than twenty-one belongs to herself, whatever the custom.)

    Personally, my own wedding was pretty traditional, but I absolutely refused to do anything that bared my garter!
