This week we're playing " keep or skip " with popular wedding traditions! We want to know which traditions you are keeping, and which ones you are skipping. ✔️

Are you planning a big reception exit? Or are you skipping this tradition?

    Sort of skip. We have a surprise music group coming at the end of the night. But it's not lining up for everyone to see us exit. So no. We may say a nice thank you on the microphone 5 minutes before the end.

    We are most likely skipping, it will be very cold outside so I dont want to make our guests stand out there to see us off.

    Skip, I never understood how/why that was a thing. Plus we'll need to clean up so?

    Skipped. We left on the shuttles with the rest of our guests.

    Skip this one. We aren't going off on a honeymoon that night plus we plan on helping clean up. Also, we plan on having an after party at the local places with friends.

    Skip: we want to stay with our guests as long as possible and dance the night away. Our photographer is leaving around 8, the party ends at 11. We also didn't love the sparkler idea (very overdone) so we just won't have one.

    Skip! I don't even want a grand entrance let alone a grand exit.

    Skipping. I don't really even understand the logistics of it. We'll probably be there until the last guest leaves.

    Skipping it! We are paying enough money for the reception that I don't want to miss a single minute of it. I plan to be the last person to leave.

    Skip, we're staying at a large cabin with our guests, we might "exit" to the bedroom to change into PJ's to stay up later in comfy clothes

    Skip it. We're getting married and reception in our backyard, so we'll be the last ones there anyway.
