After more than a year of most weddings being delayed or seriously scaled back, a lot of engaged couples are eager to tie the knot. And while some wedding traditions may never go away, there are others some people would be happy to never see again. I found this interesting because there are a lot of traditions that Kaillie and I are leaving out of our wedding.

The wedding traditions that most people think should stay include

  • Exchanging rings (79%)
  • Sending thank you notes (75%)
  • Having a first dance (73%)
  • Bride tossing the bouquet (66%)

The wedding traditions that most people think should go include:

  • The bride promised to obey her husband. (50%)
  • The bride's family paying for the wedding. (43%)

Some traditions that people think should stay but our less popular include:

  • The couple not seeing each other beforehand (44% stay vs 28% skip)
  • The groom doing a garter toss (45% stay vs 26% skip)
