Group Photo of All Your Guests
Having a guest book is a great way to have notation of who was at your wedding. If your having a smaller wedding or you have the ability to take a picture high enough to get all your guests in the frame, I suggest doing this cool new tradition! Such a cool look.
Menu of Grandmas Recipies
I love tradition and when brides take a piece of themselves and their history and put it in their weddings. If you have the ability to work with a caterer that will use your recipies or if you have enough family that can help out, pull out those foods that you remember from growing up and use them as your menu. Using menu cards that give a small story about each dish or a memory about it from either the bride or groom will make it more special and tell your guests why you picked it.
Combined Ethnic Cuisines
This can be tricky but can be done. If you both have different ethnic backrounds, show it in your menu. What's wrong with mixing Mexican foods with Italian??
Presenting Your Mom the Bouquet Instead of Tossing It
I have never seen this done but I love the idea! So sentimental and special. She can dry it and have something to remember that day for the rest of her life.
Dancing to Your Parents First-dance Song
Even if it is outdated or no one will know it, just ask your DJ to make an announcement or even better, if you have pictures of them dancing to the song you can show that in the background while you dance. Such a great tribute to them and your family!
