7 Ways To Use Family Traditions When Planning Your Wedding

Your vows are more than just you and your fiancé becoming husband and wife–it’s also a celebration of your two families becoming one.

Play Meaningful Music

Music can conjure up wonderful memories for family members at the wedding, says Sandy Hammer of AllSeated. “If there is a specific song or dance tradition that is special to your family, let your entertainment company know in advance so that they can incorporate them into the playlist,” Sandy says.
