The Bride’s List of Gratitude

‘Tis the season to be Grateful. Right?

We are all well-aware of the importance of mindfulness and gratitude. But dang it, sometimes it’s just so hard to do. Especially when planning your wedding. Mothers making the day about them. Bridesmaids falling down on the job. And grooms who actually have their own opinions!

If that’s you, we present the Bride’s List of Gratitude for brides like you in need. Or anyone who needs a little extra gratitude.

Tradition Spin: Giving Away the Bride

We love scrolling through wedding photography to see the smiles and wholesome moments captured in a day. And we especially love seeing an emotional groom when a bride appears with her dad alongside her, ready to walk down the aisle. It’s sweet. And sometimes hilarious.

Tradition Spin: Engagement Rings

Engagement rings have been a symbol of commitment for years. They’re a declaration to the world that you’re taken, that your relationship is moving to the next level.

These days, proposals can be full-scale productions. Manicures done. Cameras rolling. The ultimate social media post completed with accompanying hashtags.

But that’s not every couple. And the typical ladies-only history of engagement rings just doesn’t fit our modern views on marriage.

With that in mind, we have a few new ways couples are showing off their engagements that you just might want to steal.

This Bride Wrote a Two Page Letter of Expectations for Her Bridesmaids…and we love it.

If you head to Tik Tok for wedding ideas and advice (or follow Buzzfeed, the Today Show, Insider, etc) you’ve likely seen the epic and now viral video of San Antonio bride Lisa Torres.
