inspiration for your memorable day and more
By now you've probably heard the phrase "it's tradition!" like a hundred times. While some wedding traditions are arguably on their way to being out of fashion (it seems like every year fewer brides make time for a garter toss), there's good reason why some of these tried-and-true wedding staples are still around: They're steeped in history. And while your version of the tradition might look different than the original, the sentiment and meaning is still the same.
Guests will undoubtedly gush over your gown, be amazed by your centerpieces and snap photos of the wedding cake. But give them a charging station for when their phones hit 3 percent battery power or blister Band-Aids in the bathroom for when their heels start hurting, and your wedding will go down in history with the greats. So our advice: Think about the small things that will really allow them to enjoy and celebrate the day with you. Use the 13 ideas below to impress your guests with that extra little something-something. (Warning: they may not want to leave the party!)
Get excited: The Knot is going to throw one lucky couple the wedding of their dreams, and you get to help plan it by voting on all the details!
